SA is the abbreviation for Sophomore Advisor. Sophomore Advisors are volunteers, chosen for their leadership skills and enthusiasm, who assist first-year students in adjusting to college life. They are sophomores who live on first-year floors and assist the RA (Resident Advisor) and CD (Complex Director) in creating an atmosphere of community.
The SAAC is located on Emory's Clairmont Campus and features an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, workout area, and gymnasium. You can also take advantage of a grab-and-go dining facility and study spaces available in the SAAC.
Some of your classes may utilize TAs or Teaching Assistants. These individuals assist professors and also provide classroom instruction.
