Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Emory is full of students from all different racial and economic backgrounds. While the majority of the student population is white, especially Greek life, there is certainly a large number of students from all different ethnicities. There are a handful of foreign students, some of them foreign exchange students and some full-time students. All races and backgrounds make their presence felt due in large part to the various student ethnic groups, clubs, and organizations.

While some students may say that the students of certain minorities keep to themselves and don't "branch out," but this can be overcome by simply taking the first step and introducing yourself. Very rarely will students be rude to one another, another plus. The University itself is very welcoming to all races and encourages diversity and acceptance of all backgrounds. After being at Emory for four years, you are nearly guaranteed to have friends in every region throughout the nation and possibly from each continent as well.

Gay Pride
Emory is accepting of all sexual orientations. There are several LGBT clubs and organizations, and these students have never complained of any discrimination against them. All in all, Emory is very welcoming to everyone, gay or straight.
Political Activity
Although Emory is primarily a liberal-minded university, one would not easily be able to determine this. While there are groups and clubs that protest or boycott certain organizations, these leftist voices are not overbearing, and the school itself does not impose its views upon the students in any way.
Economic Status
With a tuition rate as high as Emory's, the school is bound to have many affluent students who come from wealthy families. This is especially seen in Greek life, as the fraternity parking lots are loaded with expensive luxury vehicles. Overall, most students appear to come from comfortable economic backgrounds, but at the same time, many students also receive financial aid.
Most Common Religions
Emory does have a large Jewish population from the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas. Christians also make up a large part of the student population on campus, and there are several fellowship groups that hold worship services open to all students.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Emory's minority clubs have several houses on campus for group members. There are also black fraternities and sororities, as well as historically Jewish fraternities and sororities. These minority clubs, as well as others, such as the Indian Cultural Exchange, sponsor various events and fundraisers throughout the year and generally draw a good crowd for their events.
Did You Know?
Emory ranked in Top 20 for academics, diversity, and innovation by U.S. News & World Report's annual "America's Best Colleges."
