The focus for freshmen just arriving on a campus is typically on getting settled in: meeting classmates, signing up for classes and figuring out how to avoid getting lost in a maze of dorms, academic buildings and quads.

But for close to 1,200 first-year students at Emory University this August, the second night of freshman orientation brought another element into the mix: learning how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and -- potentially -- to save a life.
