What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory is great, but if you want a social scene definitely join greek life. Pretty much 30% of all of Emory is involved in greek life, and they send you your weekend plans on a platter every week. You could definitely find your own crowd without greek life, but damn do they make it hard. The academics and opportunities, however, are unmatched. You'll love living here because this school has an insane amount of money. Freshman dorms and some sophomore dorms have sinks inside, which makes it super convenient and spacious inside of the dorms. It feels like you're living in your own apartment in a way, because nobody makes a lot of noise outside of their dorms. The campus is absolutely beautiful. There's gorgeous marble buildings, a giant quad, and the architecture is just really thoroughly though out. It's not too big, not too small and everything is within reach in terms of distance. The food is eh. As a freshman, you're going to have to eat at the cafeteria, which we call "DUC". The food there is actually unbearable sometimes and the amount of dry chicken they can stuff in that one facility is record-breaking. Cox Hall, however, has decent food that you can buy from different merchants. Overall, Emory has a really good set-up for career building, resume help, schedule advisory, and extracurriculars. You can pretty much have any type of college experience you want at this school - whatever you choose. The academic competition is strong, too, so be proactive about getting a spot in the library and working hard in classes. Emory's classes are difficult most of the time, so you have to put in the work if you want to succeed.

The vast diversity of the student population creates an environment that teaches the students and faculty how to be accepting. Emory does not set out to make life difficult but to provide all its students with the best opportunity to properly advance their academic​ careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it more of a distraction to me being on a big major city, it would be kinda hard not to go out and enjoy yourself a little. I did like the class sizes and the campus was such a beauty. I still plan on attending it because the major is wish to exceed it is well known in the school environment so I could always get extra help from others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory is one of the best universities I have ever heard of to the point that I dream and have dreamed of going there for years. It has a beautiful campus, especially because of its architecture. Everything is walking distance, which is great, but it is still a pretty big campus. It has a nice environment because it is close to Atlanta, but it is not directly in the city, so I am not so overwhelmed by city life while still being accessible to that lifestyle if I chose. Emory Village is an area right outside to the campus with lots of places to eat and a handy CVS that is beneficial to all students, too. And if we are looking at the college for what it provides to students academically, the school’s performance, especially in medicine and law outshines many other colleges. The staff and administration put a lot of time and effort into giving the best opportunities to its students and it shows, but while they highlight education, it is remarkable that they still successfully show their support in art and athletics. Student life is one of the most important aspects to colleges, and Emory covers that, too. Overall, Emory is an impressive school from its setting to its skills, and I would love to attend this college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Emory University. It excels in academics and is rigorous. Intro courses are large lectures but once you get into the higher level courses, class sizes tend to drop below 30 students. The professors make themselves very accessible; if you can't make it to their office hours, they are more than happy to schedule a time to meet. They offer a wide array of courses and subjects, but what bothers me is that some are only offered in the fall or in the spring semester, not both, which I think can be a waste of time for students still deciding what major to pursue. Emory is also heavily involved in medicine, and a large proportion of students come in as pre-med. While Emory is still engaged in the arts, science plays a huge role on campus. Emory is a Division III sports school, and sports is not a very big deal on campus. We also do not have a football team, but between studying, all the events happening on campus, and the other sports teams, you won't really miss it unless you're a huge football fan. Greek life does not have a very large presence on campus but is still significant with about 25% of students participating. Housing is convenient for freshman, but some can be far from classes, and one dorm haul is verrrry old with small rooms. Dining hall food is not superb but they do always have basic food to eat so that there is something for everyone (pizza, fries, burgers, gluten-free, vegan). Dessert, however, is almost always amazing. Finally, the libraries and study spaces are amazing. No matter what, you can always find a place to study, whether it be on the quiet floors in the library or the group areas in Cox. With all of that said, I love Emory University. The administration cares an incredible amount getting students involved in cultural activities, hobbies, plenty of free food and shirts, and physical and mental well-being. As a bonus of being such a healthcare-involved institution with a hospital in the center of campus, student health services and the Emory clinic are amazing. They know how stressful exams can be and always make sure that students have resources to de-stress, including dog petting!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Emory University is a very interesting place, but that is not a bad thing. Essentially, whoever you are, you'll find some group of people to relate to. The general composition is of very hardcore studiers, due to the heavy pre-med focus of the school, but there are also tons of clubs and other opportunities to become involved with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is so much to do and be involved in; however, you usually need to learn about these opportunities by engaging with other people. Go to office hours, go to academic advising even if you don't have any specific problems, and as always make good friends.

When I first visited Emory University, I fell in love. The campus "felt right." I remember telling myself "this is where I want to be." The buildings were nice. The people there were extremely. On top of that, Atlanta weather was really amazing. Can't wait to be a student here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Emory does a really good job at ensuring that their students are at their happiest as they are studying on the campus. From my experiences, the atmosphere on campus is extremely welcoming; Southern hospitality is proven true at Emory. Moreover, the students seem to really enjoy their college lifestyle, what with Farmers Markets on Tuesdays and Wonderful Wednesdays and Dooley's Week. Not only are their academics and opportunities amazing, but their student life and attention to students are impeccable as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful place for students to learn and grow! The undergraduate experience is unique to all and that is what makes Emory special. While the sports scene and school pride may not be large, there is still the sense of an intellectual community.
