Emory has a wealth of organizations spanning a variety of disciplines including music, dance, theater, visual arts and literary groups.
Both faculty-directed and student-directed arts groups exist on Emory’s campus. Some of these groups require auditions or previous experience, while others do not.
Contact information and listings for student-run groups can be found on our website and through Orgsync. More information about faculty-run groups can be found on the individual departmental websites listed above.
