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.

Overall Experience: Emory was so close to my high school, so it feels like I was already there for 4 years. Since, I've learned so much, and all it does is earn my respect. I live there, study there, and work there--such a major part of my life!

Athletics: I am a frequent user of the gym and I wish that clairmont's exercise equipment was much better than what we have now. Similarly, at the primary gym on campus the weight room is essentially a narrow hallway filled with equipment - not the best way to organize that.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The policies that this school have bordered on the outrageous at times, where oftentimes even the slightest amounts of noise can get you in trouble.

Local Atmosphere: Emory's atmosphere caters to a niche crowd whose interest in college sports is trumped by a preppy and expensive taste in fashion and lifestyle.
