3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I dislike how expensive attending this school is. Obviously it's a private school so expensive tuition is expected, but other amenities like parking, the required on campus housing and meal plan for 2 years can get quite annoying. $672 to park!! I guess I'll just park at the mall and commute.

I have made great friends here and the party scene is alright as well. Really study hard if you want to get an A in your classes, especially if you're pre-med.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Emory is divided between two campuses: Oxford campus and Atlanta campus. My school, on Oxford campus, offers a very close nit community. Just last week, I attended a program on campus and met someone of the best people yet. The most unique aspect about Oxford is the fact that you automatically transfer over to the Atlanta campus (much larger) after two years at Oxford. Oxford offers a plethora of opportunities, specifically in the leadership area.

Overall Experience: Emory Oxford is an intimate campus with about 400-500 students a class. It allows me to communicate with students and professors on a deeper level.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school's lack of a football team creates a whole different college atmosphere. The environment feels less rowdy and more geared towards actually getting an education than anything else. This keeps you focused on your work and is pretty optimal for daily success. Obviously, the trade off is that you wish more things would happen and that the school and somewhat of a more exciting air to it.

Scholarships: FAFSA was easy to complete and Emory handled the transaction quite well. However, applying for school based financial aid or scholarships was much more difficult.

Administration: Kicking fraternities and sororities off campus does not solve the problem of underage drinking or drug use. It just encourages students to find other places to do these things.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
