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.

Party Scene: On campus parties are lame. Better to go off-campus.

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.

Scholarships: They were willing to work out a flexible payment plan for my parents.

Campus Food: Limited vegetarian options. Highland Bakery best addition to Emory campus

Campus Housing: Some dorms have been newly renovated while others are still 20-30 years old. I do not believe it's fair to all freshman students to have such a varied experience.

Scholarships: It's somewhat annoying that financial aid amounts are not as large as they should be

Party Scene: It's the typical party scene: a lot of drunk students, a lot of one-night stands

Administration: Strictness is about right. College students are adults.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is amazing because of the Residence Life staff!

Greek Life: Greek life is decent for Emory being the type of school it is. Greeks are the people that actually like to party at Emory. It's pretty easy to get into a sorority or fraternity at Emory if you're not "too quirky." There aren't very many houses so everyone pretty much knows the personality of each one and will make assumptions about you according to the letters on your shirt of bag.

Athletics: There are only a handful of varsity sports teams at Emory and no one pays attention to them. The majority of Emory students graduate having never attended a sporting event. The intramurals are relatively well participated in, especially considering how anti-athletics Emory is. There's no football team which really is sad. The lack of interest in sports makes for a absence of school spirit on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: Atlanta is known for it's food. The options are endless. As for Emory Village which is technically off-campus, there aren't many options but it's enough if you're looking for something other than the DUC or Cox for a change.

Administration: It's not that hard to get caught but it's pretty hard to get in trouble. An RA will only write you up for drinking or smoking in the dorms if you're acting like you're trying to get caught. Even if they make you open the door, if they don't actually see a bottle they'll probably let it slide the first time. However the honor code and sexual assault are both taken very seriously at Emory.

Scholarships: No matter what they say it's not guaranteed that 100% of your need will be met. If the original package they offer isn't enough you have to go to the office a thousand times before they finally find another loan for you.

Party Scene: Frat parties are fun when you're a freshman or sophomore, but the upperclassmen usually pass and go to Buckhead to party instead. There are plenty of people that go out every weekend. There are people that go out every night of the week and some that never go out at all. Most Emory students really value their studies so if they're overwhelmed with work and have to stay in their friends will understand.

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.
