Overall Experience: Having a degree from Emory will get you super far, and the alumni association is really strong, so you can always have connections. Getting a job after graduation isn't hard at all with a degree from such a prestigious school!

Nightlife: There are a lot of clubs and bars near Emory, and there are shuttle stops near many of them. Some of them can be kind of pricey though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: You're not "allowed" to have alcohol in your dorms, but everyone does anyway because no thorough search is ever done. Just be careful with what you do, or you could be in serious trouble (i.e, expelled)

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Atlanta has so much to offer when it comes to restaurants. I mean, you can find literally everything you're craving there! I highly recommend Cafe Intermezzo, RA Sushi, and King of Pops!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Emory is very expensive, but they give you ample financial aid. I mean, I'm still $30000 in debt, but my parents don't support my college education, and I know it could be a lot worse considering how much Emory is.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living in Atlanta is going to be expensive no matter where you stay, but there are quite a few apartment complexes to choose from for off campus housing!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: No one goes to Emory for athletics. That being said, our teams aren't bad, but they aren't incredible either.

Diversity: Emory is pretty diverse for a private school. However, if you aren't rich, it's kinda harder to fit in.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Emory is GORGEOUS. The buildings are beautiful, and the landscaping is fabulous. Everything screams with class, so you never forget that you're going to a Tier One private institution.

Campus Dining: Dining is pretty good, there are a lot of options for everyone. The quality food isn't bad, but it isn't something you'll be craving either. The hours are convenient and there are late night snacks!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone at Emory dresses very well, and I have to say that I haven't seen anyone who is just flat out ugly so far. Everyone fits into one crowd or another - so no one is left out. It's a very warm and welcoming environment!

Campus Housing: I lived in the oldest dorm first year and it was awful. But now that they tore it down, the remaining dorms are great.

Emory provides for a very unique and rewarding college experience. With the prestigious and academically rigorous University paired with the entertaining and lively city of Atlanta, your experience at Emory will certainly be a memorable one. You will be forced to work hard during your time at Emory, but you will hopefully see the benefits of this shortly thereafter. Many find Emory's celebrated diversity a blessing as well as a curse, as sometimes the various minorities or student groups become extremely cliquey and exclusive, leaving some students feeling left out. But for most this feeling does not last, and they quickly find their group of friends and people who they truly care about. There is a niche and group for everyone at Emory, but sometimes it can take a while to discover where exactly it is.

While the tuition rates at Emory are some of the highest in the nation, many students look back after a few years and feel that their time at Emory was well spent, literally and figuratively. The school has tons of invaluable resources to offer from the million-dollar facilities to the world-class professors, and your experience is truly what you make of it. The city also has an unlimited amount of opportunities and resources at each student's disposal as well. Both Emory and Atlanta have everything anyone could ask for and more, and until you realize this, you will not be able to fully understand the blessing of attending Emory.
