Overall an outstanding University. I see myself continuing to study here, and even live in the general area. I hope I can be admitted to the Medical School. The people really make the experience everything, and I can attest, starting from my first visit.
Everyone at this school is so so kind. There is always a friendly face. The academics are superior as well. This school is definitely the "Ivy League of the South" and often goes unnoticed. There isn't a lot of hype around sports because we don't have a football team.

Emory was a wonderful place for my education in that I felt supported by the faculty and included in the student community. I am confident in my abilities to perform well in my career ambitions going forward due to my involvement at Emory, and the community I got to be a part of.

its made up of long island jews. It is not ecnomically diverse. There is diversity but groups tend to hang out together.
academics are good
some students are ultra competitive
good social scene. everyones nice and open to making new friends. alot of good bars and clubs nearby.
The best thing about Emory is how progressive the university is. Emory does not settle for mediocrity and that’s reflected in almost all aspects of the intuition. Emory wants its students to grow as scholars and as people. It’s willing to listen to student complaints and suggestions and actively changes things to make them better. From the Theater Program to the Chemistry Department, to the Dining Hall, Emory is very concerned with student happiness and making the institution the best it can be and is constantly striving to be a better more well-rounded campus.
The small size really appealed to me because I do not do well in large cities or social situations. I also liked the reputation and that it was close to home.
The diversity is hyped up, but it is hard to see it physically around.
It is really well-rounded. It is well known for its business, nursing, medical and law schools. It does very well as a liberal arts college.
Anyone who cannot handle academic pressure of any kind should not attend this school. This institution is extremely competitive and the student are constantly competing with one another to be the best.
Emory University is the pinnacle of an ideal and exciting college career because it packs all of the positive aspects of higher education into one central location: a friendly faculty and staff who want to see nothing but a student's success, a student body "family" that is just as concerned with helping others as helping oneself, and a campus where one feels nothing but safety and security.
This is a very diversified and friendly school with many intellectuals.
Bearing the title of an Emory student carries with it expectations of discipline, responsibility, and rigor. However, the characteristic that embodies the learners of Emory most profoundly is open-mindedness. Emory's gates are open to those who appreciate the vibrant cultures of different continental races here and the variety of thought they bring with it. The energy of our campus thrives from the students' passion to probe, question, and understand the vast range of diversity and knowledge surrounding them, no matter where their political or ideological loyalties lie. In essence, we welcome those willing to learn from each other.
That it's not actually IN Atlanta
Sometimes the workload can be frustrating. It really depends on what courses/career path you are pursuing. For someone who is pre med, I have a demanding schedule in the sciences. However, I really feel that after the initial frustration, I have learned a lot to make all the stress worthwhile.
The Emory bubble. Very large Jewish population, especially from the northeast. Relatively diverse student body, but a majority of students don't embrace this. Most students not willing to step out of their comfort zones. Sports are not big and school spirit as a result centers around Greek life. Intellectually curious student body, but the majority of students are not intellectuals per-se. Grade inflation. Very pre-professional oriented student body. Expensive. Mediocre job recruiting.
Cara talks about living in complex which is made up of 3 halls and has lots of amenities.
As an upperclassmen, frat parties aren't always the thing to do. Frat parties usually consist of a lot of freshman, but sometimes events are thrown off campus. The good thing about Atlanta is that there is so many other venues like bars and clubs and lounges to hang out at, that there isn't a problem finding other things to do. However, because atlanta is a driving city, it can be a huge pain to split cab fare with friends especially if all your friends live in different parts of campus. I think another criticism of campus social life is that people are kinda cliquey here and may not be open to meeting new people. It just depends on who you meet and what activities you join. The best part of campus is that you can definitely walk down the street and identify familiar faces, however if you don't like seeing people you know, it's fine too! Emory is big enough where you can see enough people you know, and can easily avoid the ones you want to avoid...
I think campus social life is pretty big and nice, just needs better organization as well as more interest of the student body of really cool events! But overall, social scene happens on and off campus pretty equally.
