4 College Freshman

Weather: Pretty warm in the fall, spring, and summer

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Such a beautiful campus. Very green and the buildings are gorgeous!! Everything from the dorms to the athletic facilities are in great condition

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Emory is full of unique traditions like Songfest and Dooley's Week. There are always activities happening on campus- everyone can find something for them.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: If you can get to Atlanta (which is so close but so far away for those with no car or no money for transportation), then the world is yours.

2 College Freshman

Computers: Emory Wireless shuts down during registration because too many people are online. this makes registration a pain.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: I honestly think that Emory could be so much better.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There are lots of things but again, Emory is a friggin bubble. It's rather annoying.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People seem pretty chill about it. You don't have to do it to have fun.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know little to nothing about Greek life. It's not my thing.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's pretty limited. If you don't have money for a cab, you're out of luck.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It could have been better, seriously.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe. Emory is such a bubble that I don't experience much of the dangers of the outside world.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Lots of Jewish and Chinese people. Not that it's a bad thing, just different from high school for me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lucked out and got one of the best dorms on campus so my opinions are biased. I tried to take into account all of the horror stories I've heard from those in other dorms.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is quite a large selection of eye candy. However, some of them are pretty stuck-up.

Campus Strictness: People here seem pretty chill. It's only when you begin affecting other people that it becomes an issue.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really get out much so I'm not too sure about how good the off-campus dining options are. This is mainly due to lack of spending money as well lack of transportation. Emory is in Atlanta so the potential dining options are endless; however, getting to these locations is the issue.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There's usually always something to do and places to be.

College Freshman

Facilities: It's a very well rounded school, has just enough of everything.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless cuts a lot but it's usually reliable.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything on campus is in walking distance, but there are still shuttles for on and off campus housing and locations. There is also MARTA and taxis that can take you anywhere for reasonable prices.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus so I wouldn't know how off campus is.

3 College Freshman

Majors: They have removed many majors like Visual Arts and Journalism and will continue to minimize them, but the ones offered are good.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship yet, but it is very easy to get one.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are like a hotel! Feel more at home in my dorm than I do at home!

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.
