4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are really nice for freshmen and slightly less so for sophomores. Clairmont, except for the towers, are excellent apartments with a lot of room and amenities.

Campus Housing: My rating is limited for Emory's main campus housing because I transferred from Oxford, but from what I've seen and heard, the dorms and amenities are very clean and there is a strong sense of community among freshmen. Someone who lives on main campus told me that they couldn't imagine having to take shuttles to get to main campus everyday. I currently live on the Clairmont campus which has apartment style living and tennis/basketball courts, a nice-sized pool (about the size of two tennis courts) and an activities center with computers and study rooms. I have to take a shuttle to get to and fro, but it only takes about ten minutes. And walking to the central campus only takes about 12-15 minutes. Living on Clairmont Campus just requires more through time management and planning. The social atmosphere on Clairmont is lively on weekends and peaceful for the majority of the week.

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. Cost is on the high-end, but it's a good community.

Campus Housing: Housing at Emory seems pretty great. There are a couple older buildings but I would say most buildings are clean and livable.

Overall, campus housing is excellent, with a few exceptions. Freshman housing is more inconsistent due to the older dorms, such as McTyeire and Dobbs, which residents often complain about. These dorms, however, are scheduled to be demolished in 2012, so this will not be a problem for incoming students. The newer freshman dorms, such as Longstreet-Means, Few, and Evans, are state-of-the-art buildings and are involved in an environmentally friendly sustainability program that allows students to track their usage of water and electricity in hopes of making them environmentally aware. Students must submit an essay in order to apply for these halls, but it is a small cost for a wonderful housing option.

Alabama Hall is a sophomore dorm that is very conveniently located near the DUC, but like the older freshmen dorms, it is worn down, and sophomores tend to prefer Woodruff as an on-campus housing option. Clairmont campus provides a beautiful off-campus housing option for upperclassmen and is home to the state-of-the-art Student Activity and Academic Center, which provides study rooms, exercise equipment, a basketball court, a café, and its very own Olympic-sized pool. The only downside to living at Clairmont is the fact that it is not on main campus, and this is enough to prevent many students, especially those without cars, from applying for housing here. Once Emory builds the newest freshman dorms and demolishes the old ones, the University will boast a very impressive array of housing options for students.
