4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Emory's dorms are almost all really good. They have different themes such as leadership and sustainability, but all seem to have a good sense of community.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Although they sometimes try to do some shady things with your money, Emory offers a lot of financial aid, and I'm not paying much of the $60,000 to go here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: We can go to the dining hall as many times as we want and late at night there's two places to eat on campus that stay open until one or two AM and on Thursday- Sunday nights we have food trucks that take our Emory dollars (Dooley Dollars)

5 College Freshman

Administration: There really appear to be no rules here. Even though it's a tobacco free campus, people smoke all the time. Even though we have quiet hours, people play music extremely loudly all day and night. Anyone can visit dorms at any time and stay for however long and no one in authority would know or really care.

4 College Freshman

Technology: It's really cheap to print/copy documents which is great. The wifi is just okay. It works pretty much everywhere on campus and is relatively fast but is nothing incredible.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Here in Atlanta there's always something to do. There's always parties and clubs and concerts to attend and good places to eat and shop. People are always kind to students and helpful when we look lost or confused. The public transportation (bus/train system) is incredibly sufficient. It goes pretty much everywhere and there's more than one bus stop right on campus.

Athletics: Sports aren't very big here. There's no football team, which is one of the biggest sports in colleges. Without that, students don't show much support for the other sports.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Emory has unique quirks that the students tend to love. The campus is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, and the libraries and athletic centers are all very useful. There aren't many places that everyone likes to hang out, but the dorms are so nice that we like to stay there.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The gym, cafeteria, and labs are all really clean and put together.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall Emory is a great school. The food, dorms, professors, everything is top notch.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks here just don't seem to meet the stereotypes everyone knows and loves.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It feels like summer until around October, and even in November we get 70 degree days. It doesn't get too cold in the winter. mid twenties at the worst.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: In my major, a lot of students want to try to get research experience, which is fairly easy. There are programs to help match students to mentors in their fields, but it is also possible to approach a professor individually to be a lab assistant.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I've had more experiences with looking at jobs rather than internships. Jobs tend to be fairly common here, especially work study jobs. They might be a little difficult to obtain, but most jobs only ask for 8-12 hours a week.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I think it really depends on the person and their individual experience. The college is able to meet the student's needs, though.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload can be a little difficult depending on the courses you choose. Time management skills become even more important once you choose a major and start working on meeting those requirements.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a number of different fields that students choose from. There's everything from chemistry to political studies to music.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the school. There are diverse and intelligent people, and it makes for a great experience.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are opportunities to get involved with Greek life, if you're interested in it.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus. There are a lot of international students and out-of-state students.

Health & Safety: For the most part, the campus feels pretty safe. There are also email alerts sent in case anybody reports any kind of crime.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather can be very fickle. It's considered mild so it doesn't get as hot or cold as other parts of the country.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It isn't hard to avoid the drinking and drugs, but there definitely are people who participate in it frequently.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are options for off-campus housing, but cost may vary. A lot of the immediate places are more expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The area around the school is pretty good. But if you don't have a car, it can become a little difficult to get off of campus and explore other parts of the city.

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.
