4 College Freshman

Transportation: Lots of Options – Public transportation is really good. We have Marta which are a combination of buses and trains, easy access to taxis and a Zip Car program.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Varsity athletics here are really quite poor. We have men and women's baskeball, men and women's soccer, women's volleyball, men and women's tennis, men's baseball, men's golf, men and women's swimming and diving, women's softball, men and women's cross country, and men's track and field, none of which are particularly successful except for volleyball, tennis, swimming and golf. However, there are a plethora of club and intramural sports that are awesome.

Local Area: Surrounding Areas – Atlanta is AMAZING. The clubs are infamous, the food is delicious and the people are... interesting. Check out Little 5 Points if you ever get the chance. If you want to get pierced, tattooed or just want to people watch, that's the place to go.

Weather: It's Atlanta. 'Nuff Said. Weather here is awesome. It can get cold, but for the most part, we're always treated to nice 65-70 degree weather up until holiday breaks.

Diversity: There are so many different types of people here in terms of race, religion, socioeconomic status, etc. But sometimes, especially in terms of race, you notice it. Everyone is aware of their classmates, but tend to stick with their own ethnic group. It's particularly bad with the international and/or Asian students here. And I'll admit, I'm Korean and for my first year, I stuck with mostly Koreans but I've really tried to break out a little for my second year.

Health & Safety: Very Safe.. Emory has lights everywhere and our security bubble is pretty legit. The Escort system this year was a little inconvenient this year with up to hour long waits. But even though I thought I'd be using it a lot this year, I've realized that Emory campus feels really safe even at night because of everyone else walking around.

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.
