5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is very bearable all year around. The only thing that sucks is the rainy season

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I would stick to the college parties the bars are rather lame

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There have been some hard times but that comes with every college experience.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: For being a Predominately White Institution, Emory is extremely diverse. Although Greek Life especially tends to be extremely segregated not only in terms of race but socioeconomic status, political beliefs etc

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They try not to get anyone in trouble often unless you leave them no option. So just don't be stupid and you will be fine

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Druid Hills is rather quiet but downtown ATL is just a short MARTA ride away (if you dare ride the MARTA)

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Although I have not lived off campus I have many friends who have and the closer you are to campus the more expensive it is so if you plan on living off campus invest in a car

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food around campus gets the job done but many of the restaurants close early so your options come down to chinese or dominos

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid everywhere is a hassle but thus far i've had no complaints. Any questions they are happy to help. The only thing is that sometimes the wait at the office is long so it's better to call.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Although Emory tries its best with the shuttle service, I wish there were more options for getting to downtown ATL

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus even when walking alone late at night.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities are great; if you want to remain active in college Emory makes it very easy to do so

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I spend a lot of the time in the library. It has a variety of different spaces for all your studying needs. although it gets crowded at times, you can always find a place to study

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Most people at least smoke weed. You can smell it in the dorms if you just walk around. Seems like weed is very accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most students look very attractive, although many people attribute that to the "Emory goggles".

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It honestly depends on what dorm you live in. A lot of the freshman dorms are beyond awesome. However, as you move in to upperclassmen dorms, the quality of the dorms just get worse.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students move off campus after the two years that Emory requires you to live on campus. Living off campus is definitely way cheaper. There are many different places off campus that Emory shuttles also reach, so you don't necessarily need a car if you choose to move off campus to one of these locations.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is pretty strict with drug use. With alcohol use, there is a one-time pass you get if you get caught drinking in the dorms. However, that is a one-time pass for all four years.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is really great in the Spring. Year round it is pretty warm all the time. The only times the weather's really bad is when it rains.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's great on campus. Every now and then when police reports come in and you hear about crime near or around campus, you get kind of scared. Other than that, I haven't really felt like I've been in a dangerous situation before.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's hard to get pumped up about campus sports. Seeing as Emory doesn't have a football team, it feels like that fact alone killed a lot of the school spirit on campus. I haven't been to a single Emory sports game since I've first come to Emory.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are two cafeterias. The upperclassmen cafeteria isn't as great anymore as it used to be. It gets old fast, since the only places worth eating are the sandwich place, sushi, and the taco place. The DUC is ok every now and then, but you get sick of it quickly if you eat there all the time. There are very limited options of food at the village. Overall, not much variety in food. Campus food is also pretty expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a variety of people here from different socioeconomic backgrounds and religions. There are also people of various sexual orientations here. In general, you meet a very different person every day.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
