Candler School of Theology 2013 New Student Orientation

Under Construction: Tearing Down and Building Up!

Welcome to Candler School of Theology's 2013 orientation website. We're so glad that you've made the decision to be a part of the Candler community and are looking forward to meeting you in person. Orientation is designed to help you become more familiar with the purposes, framework and components of a theological education at Candler, as well as to acquaint you with the Candler community, the Emory community and the larger community of Atlanta. One of the ways we hope to offer information and assistance is through this website. Please feel free to browse the pages or check the links for useful information -- and keep checking back, as we'll be adding features over the summer. We also invite you to call or email us with specific questions.
