  • Emory University has a broad-based intercollegiate athletic program with approximately 350 student-athletes comprising the school's 18 varsity sports.
  • Emory University competes at the NCAA Division III level.  The distinguishing factor in comparing Division III programs to Division I & II institutions is that Division III athletics feature athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletic skills.
  • Emory is a member of the University Athletic Association (UAA). Other institutions comprising the eight-team league include Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University, Case Western Reserve University, New York University, University of Chicago, University of Rochester and Washington University.
  • Emory is just one of six schools in the nation--others include Stanford, Notre Dame, MIT, Washington University and Johns Hopkins -- to place in the top 10 in the NACDA Directors' Cup for best all-around athletics program (2nd in 2012-13) and among the top 20 annual of best national universities (20th).
