With these it does emphasis because these are not using pronoun-as-to-be.
A pronoun-as-to-be sentence has to have -'e', whether one want's to emphasis or

But you're only talking about "all students".  What if someone cames along and 
believes they are no longer a student?
The original want's to say that everyone, no matter what they think they are,
