I have had a fantastic experience at Oxford College of Emory University. Professors here are brilliant, available to students, and committed to teaching undergraduates before their personal studies and research. The atmosphere is quaint and home-like, and I've never felt unsafe on campus. Oxford is great for freshmen and sophomores who are eager to get involved on their campuses and get into leadership positions early. I feel like I have community here, which is something rare to experience in your first year of college. Food is fantastic, buildings are beautiful, and the small campus makes it easy to get to classes on-time. I would definitely recommend Oxford at Emory for your undergraduate experience!

I really enjoy the classes at Emory--there's a wide range of classes, including the hardcore science/premed courses to classes focusing on the Japanese animator Miyazaki and classes on how to be a clown. It's great! Professors here are generally very dedicated and passionate about their work and are excellent at teaching (they're clear and organized); they really are concerned with what students learn and willingly help out if a student is struggling. Classes themselves range depending on their popularity, from some as small as 15 to some as large as 100+.

Emory in a nutshell?
There is little to no sense of community unless you join Greek life which in and of itself can be pretty exclusionary subsequently transfer rates are high.There is virtually no effort made in creating opportunities for freshman to meet one another and consequently people stick to who they know setting the tone for the rest of their time here. Academics are strong but people are not usually interested in learning and are invested in their classes insomuch as it procures them an A. This undeniably hinders the intellectual potential of the institution. A pamphlet may read “liberal arts” but pre-professional is perhaps more apt and if you're not a business major then you might as well not exist. My advice: If you enjoy learning, value community, and are interested in a holistic academic experience DO NOT COME HERE.
