2 College Junior

Greek Life: No One Cares – At Emory, the only ones who care at all are those in greek life. the rest of the campus either looks down of how them or just uses them for their parties.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Give It a Chance – People often go in expecting food to be so bad they do not even give it a chance. Emory's cafeteria, the DUC has its bad days but overall the food is pretty good and gives you a lot of healthier choices and variety than you would get eating at places like Cox everyday, which serves a lot of fast food.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safe and Secure – Emory has one the the best hospitals in the world and a very accessible student health center. The campus is also well lit, has many blue lights from which you can call the police in case of emergency, and they even offer a free shuttle service if you get stuck off campus late at night and cannot get back. If any incident happens on campus involving crime, they send out and almost immediate email or text message.

4 College Junior

Academics: Tough Courses Ahead – There are some very easy classes here, but there are also man hard and demanding classes, especially at the Oxford campus where teachers can given more assignments due to much smaller classes. Either way you go, you will learn a lot.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not Bad – Emory is ok. The education is good and at the Oxford campus I got A LOT of research experience in science. Main campus is a bit more socially distant but there are a wider variety of classes and opportunities.

3 College Junior

Technology: To Man Macs – Emory is turning into a hipster; they have just about gotten rid of all the PC's and replaced them with macs even though a lot of students oppose the move. On the plus side, Cox Computing center is one of the coolest places I have seen on any campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Many Shuttles – Emory is near many MARTA stations, which id nice. They also have regular shuttle service on campus and shuttles tot eh malls and other shoping centers during the week. M only complaint would be that shuttles on campus are too infrequent on the weekends, ridiculously crowded in the late afternoon, and are prone to breakdowns.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of Places – There are a lot of places off-campus to live and they are close to a variety of shopping places. If you need to drive to campus however, it will be expensive because Emory is trying to discourage the usage of cars.

4 College Junior

Academics: Very Pre-Med Oriented – Emory is a good school, but as a science major it can be a bit annoying that the science classes are often oriented towards pre-med student interests.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Very Easy. Yet Demanding – Entering into my major did not present any major challenges for me. Except for the rigorous application process and making sure I maintained my grades, I just declared my major and that was that. I was even invited to come to school a week before the rest of the students to participate in a week-long seminar to familiarize myself with the different options within my major.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Top Research University – Emory is considered one of the top 20 universities for research. It collaborates with important institutions such as CDC, and the American Cancer Society for conducting research. The professors are very knowledgeable and academics are demanding. What I think is the best trait of Emory is that it is focused on providing opportunities to outstanding students with limited resources. The school will go beyond what any school will do to ensure that students live the best experience. It's what they call "Living the Emory Experience".

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Perfect Southern Life – Location, location, location. Emory University is situated in the center of a middle-class residential area with a small town feel. However, down-town Atlanta is just a couple of miles away. Atlanta is full of options for entertainment such as the Aquarium, CNN headquarters, The World of Coca-Cola, and many historical sites.
Emory University houses one of the most beautiful art collections I have seen. Emory is located near the CDC, which provides great research opportunities for students. What I appreciate the most around my school is the free transportation services. Emory University and Atlanta are the best choices for me.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There are SI, Supplemental Instructors which really help in science or history related course. They pretty much spark note the professor lectures and downgrade them to help students understand at a more understandable level I would say.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: The campus itself can be busy due to influx of student roaming around however during most of the day the quad is open to all students to relax and form study groups. I earned my first A+ because of my study buddies whom I met while roaming around the the center of my campus, the "Quad".

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The Professors Help With Understanding the Student's Learning Styles. I remember sitting in my religion class baffled by what the professor was lecturing about. I came to my professor's office and asked him how I can improve, he gave me over 60 hours worth different resources to help simulate my mind. I was so impressed by the resources given to me.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tons of Life – Clubs around Atlanta are awesome. A lot of college nights are offered regularly where students at the age of 18+ can party, so don't be discouraged because you're not 21 yet. Also, the transportation around Emory is really convenient - they have an Emory shuttle that goes around different Emory campuses, cab services, and a zippy car renting service if you're over 21. I would consider Emory a work hard, play hard college.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Get Involved! Emory has an amazing athletic center. While it does not have a football, a lot of the school spirit is focused around clubs, campus activities, etc. The library has a lot of historical documents that students can refer to. There's always something to do at Emory - so many campus activities going on. Overall, Atlanta is a great college town - there's a lot to do even off campus in the surrounding areas, so you'll never get bored.

5 College Freshman

Academics: A Liberal Arts Education – Emory has a strong liberal arts curriculum, and a wide variety of classes. There are so many options available at Emory for any major.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of money from my school; however, my tuition is still pretty pricey.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is very poor here in Emory. Some sport teams do not play all that well either.

Academics: Teachers That Care – In my personal experience, I have noticed that most of the professors seem very knowledgable on the subjects they are teaching. Their curriculum are usually engaging and they do seem to care about the material that they are presenting to the students. The workload is managable yet somewhat difficult. I do appreciate the study options available to students however there is much room for improvement. The main concern is the speed in which the professors expect their students to completely understand the information. More consideration for the learning capacity of the students would be greatly appreciated.

1 College Junior

Parking: SO Expensive! Emory University is very environmentally green. Thus the price of parking is so expensive, so people are more likely to use the free shuttles. There isn't enough parking space especially because of the hospital and clinics on campus. Employees end up taking a large portion of the parking spaces and freshman can't have cars.

Guys & Girls: Emory is a very diverse school but people tend to hang out with people who are like them. A lot of very wealthy people, some of who join frats and sororities. Almost every one wears designer labels and there is a large population of international students, especially from East Asia.

4 College Junior

Academics: Great Experiences and Opportunities – I"m in Emory University and I absolutely love it. The courses are not easy, especially the sciences, but they do prepare you for the future. The professors are great and extremely intelligent and very helpful if you get to know them better. It's a great school with a lot of research opportunities and it really helps if you're planning of medical school like I am.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Shuttles Are Amazing – The shuttle services are amazing. They provide transportation to the airport, mall, and even other college campuses. Very convenient.

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.
