Emory Classics Gateway Program


In the summer of 2022, Emory University’s Department of Classics launched the Emory Classics Gateway. The program provided funding for four students with an interest in Classics to attend Emory’s Pre-College Summer Program for a two-week residential experience as rising juniors or seniors.

Pictured from left to right are this year’s winners, Arshia Larestani, Deva Hinton-Lawson, Rachel Taylor, and Ava Reese.
