Varsity sports receive little-to-no attention. Some people attend the basketball games, but that's about it. There is very little school spirit when it comes to sports. IM sports are very popular and a lot of fun. They are also very competitive,

I wish I had gotten more, but it's not unmanageable.
College Freshman 2013-11-04T04:06:12Z
There is not Varsity Football which seems to drive down school spirit.

It is college, drugs are plentiful, lots of rich kids abusing but most who need the education avoid them. It is a non-smoking campus as of 2012 so smokers are a bit annoyed. Plenty to do if your not into drugs.

Lots of races (non-black) and religions- but all liberal.

Parking is a pain. The yearly pass is well over 700 at this point, parking in some "unmarked" spot is risky, there are boot-ers all over the place and common areas- even local restaurants. Your best bet though is to pay for the parking, or leave your car off campus and use the emory shuttles.

I'm a rare student that is easy to please with dining. There are a lot of options and lots are organic, kosher, paleo and ethnic. I grocery shop though- it's extremely expensive.

Most upper classmen choose to live off campus. ATL transportation is troublesome, but if you have a car your gold.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone's generally friendly on Emory's campus. There are a fair share of students who seem to have gone to high school together- it's like all colleges though- you have to make the effort and get out there or you'll be lonely. Friends don't show up at your door. Lots of Asians, upstate NJ/NY jewish kids as well. There's something for every taste though...
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:24:59Z
The food is pretty good. Until you get tired of it. There are still multiple options around campus where you can use your meal plan, but those also get old. Even though you may get tired of eating, it the food is not of poor quality and there is enough variety to make it satisfactory to eat most meals out of the week on campus.

Health & Safety:
The help is available if you need it. The school definitely lets you know that upon enrolling. But, the health services are not great substitutes for going to the actual doctors office and Atlanta is an urban city, there is bound to be crime in the city, but the school takes great precaution to try and alleviate some of that.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:17:19Z
I think the nightlife in Atlanta is really great. If you walk around Atlanta at any time of the day one is bound to find something happening. It is true, that there is alot more to be done if you are 21 but that's just because everything else is either not well advertised or its not free, or both. The good thing is one only has to walk around to find something going on.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:14:24Z
I would say off-campus housing is wonderful no matter where one decides to live. And if you are a really good shopper it is easy to find one within your tastes and means. The only downside is because the campus is in the higher-class part of the city housing will be relatively expensive. But the freedom is totally worth paying for.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:11:02Z
All of the facilities on campus are actually wonderful, mostly because they are constantly being remodeled or new things are constantly being built. Because of this, the only downside to the facilities on campus is, one day you might be able to use them and then the next day, you find out its going to be remodeled for the next semester.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:08:31Z
Parking on campus it actually pretty great. There are plenty of places to park near the dorms, and everything is close enough so you wont need to drive anywhere on campus anyway. But since the campus is in Atlanta is pretty convenient to just be able to drive where you need to go.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:06:15Z
There are lots of computers to use. And every student is free to use them at anytime. But during crunch times like midterms, computers can be sparse. It can also be a big pain and waste of time to wait for an available computer. It is much more convinient to just have your own whenever you need it.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:03:49Z
Diversity is something the school prides themselves on and they definitely deserve to. The students are all very like minded, like a typical college student but everyone's background varies greatly.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:01:09Z
The campus if drug free and very in tolerant of Alcohol, and they let you know this very explicitly as a freshman. But although, this is the case it's not like it doesn't exist on campus. Many people drink and do drugs its a part of the college experience to try new things. Nevertheless the fact remains that if you don't hang out with people that do it, you wont be pressured to do anything yourself. There is also the truth that you can always say no. Its college no one cares.

I am privileged to come from California where the weather is beautiful everyday. The weather here is not as nice as California but it is still pretty forgiving. It is humid during the summer and kind of chilly in the winter (down to 50s 40s).
College Freshman 2013-10-16T01:18:20Z
Emory has people from all over the country even though I see a lot of people from Georgia and Florida. I would say the student body is very racially diverse. We have lots of international students as well.
As for socioeconomic background, the majority of students had enough or more than enough money growing up; lots of people from middle to upper class.

Parking is horrible...you must get there 30-45 minutes early because you have to take a shuttle ariund campus

Health & Safety:
There are safety escort services available, but not all walkways are well-lit, especially if walking along the main road at night. We do get notifications about local crimes, but none are very close to main campus.

Drinking is the most popular activity. I do feel there has been more smoking (weed and cigarettes- despite the campus being tobacco free)

You will literally find a party at either Sigma Nu, Sigma Chi, Beta, or AEPi any night of the week (except sunday when everybody's paralyzed on the couch watching football) You will come to learn the pros and cons of each fraternity, but the best nights (i wish i could add 'to remember') are tues/thurs/fri, mixers, date parties, and, of course, Back in Black.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
