Transportation: Emory has a phenomenal shuttle service. We have buses that are almost nicer than the city buses and they take you various places around campus as well as to different stores and city bus stations. There's also an app so you can keep track of where all the buses are at a given time and what their routes are.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Emory prides itself on being diverse, but it's mostly international students. There's hardly any blacks here and not too many homosexuals either just to give a couple examples.

Health & Safety: This may be because Emory is a private school, but I feel very safe here. People often leave their doors unlocked and nothing seems to get stolen. We sleep with our doors unlocked and never feel to be in any danger on campus.

Drug Safety: I don't see many people being pressured and I've never seen an exchange of drugs on campus. Alcohol, however is everywhere and people are drunk every weekend.

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.

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.

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.
