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

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: 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.

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.
