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.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really participate in the athletic scene much.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are tons of places to hangout or study.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There could be more dining options that work with your meal plan

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: My school is not in the city but close to it, so it has a good feel to it.

Transportation: The only thing terrible about the transportation at my school is that you have to pay a lot for the permit for cars.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: After being here for 2 years, the administration has taken all the fun out of being in a fraternity, from restricting beer pong, to basically doing anything that would be deemed fun. It is sad to see the social culture of Emory go downhill because of restrictions by the university. The only thing that makes Greek Life worth it is the people, but without the ability to express yourself and do things in your own house, the entire idea of being in a fraternity becomes pointless. Emory Administration get that stick out your a$$

Academics: The environmental studies department is fantastic. They are interested in you and have a great intern class to prepare you for the job search. I love it!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are mostly amazing. Registration is hectic and it sucks

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Worst part is availability of night time transportation

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security mainly punishes small things while overlooking bigger problems. I feel relatively safe. Campus health doesn't even take my insurance and is far away. They don't seem to be the best because they just say everyone has mono

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a lot of school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The students aren't out of control they know how to tone it down and take care of each other.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a lot of frats and there is a party almost every weekend.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are built within the last five years and they are in the process of building another one. Cleaning staff comes everymoring the rooms are spacious and private.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There isn't a football team, the basketball team is mediocre, the soccer team is great volleyball is great, but they don't recruit players.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus, but friends seem to like the freedom of it.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They're strict when it comes to the important things like underage drinking.

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.
