Cliff Shuttles – cliff shuttles are my main source of transport besides my roommates' car. pretty convenient. Definetly need the car in addition to the shuttles if you live on clairmont though.

Clairmont is amazing because of the SAAC convenience, parking, kitchen-apartments, and accessibility to campus with the cliff shuttles. Living here next year!

I love cox. the variety is great and health conscious. I buy most of my meals there. DUC can get old with limited options and doesn't open early enough on weekends for athletes. Love the variety of Zayas and emory village though! Especially the new chipotle!

Not the Best – Transportation is really limited to having your own car or friends with cars. The buses are somewhat helpful, but the cost of parking in general, and a parking pass is very steep. Fraternity parking lots are very cramped but convenient. The options for parking are limited and can be far away depending of where you live.

No one pressures you to do anything, but like in aspect of life drugs are available to those who want them. It also depends on who you hang out with.

A Lot to Do in Atlanta – Atlanta is a big city with anything ranging from the mall, to the aquarium, to live music, to big concerts. The local attitude towards students is very accepting and helpful. There is always something to do off campus. The amount of restaurants and boutiques throughout Virginia Highlands and Buckhead give students a wide variety in itself. Big attractions like stone mountain, the Georgia aquarium, and sporting events also add to the allure of living in Atlanta.

Pretty Lax, No Smoking Though! the police are pretty chill. they give a lot of parking tickets, and are very adimant about the no smoking policy

Fun Stuff Far Away – there are a lot of awesome clubs and bars, but you need to pay for a cab for most of the places, unless you go to the local emory places, but it'll still cost like $5 total roundtrip. lots of clubs for 18+ and when you get older cool neighborhoods to go to

Pretty Good – We have a great library, decent athletic centers, good campus activities, anda gorgeous campus

Living on Clairmont Campus – Housing and facilities on Clairmont are great. The apartments, aside from the Tower, have everything you need. In the URC, the single bedrooms are a decent size, there are washing machines and dryers in each apartment, etc.

Basketball & Swimming – as you may know, Emory has no football team so basketball gets the biggest turnout as far as fans. Swim team is really good..so I hear. People don't really go to meets. Emory tries to have a Homecoming based around a soccer game, but it doesn't work for the most part.
College Senior 2012-02-06T04:19:54Z
The housing depends greatly. The newer freshman dorms and upperclass halls like Clairmont are great, but the older freshman dorms(Trimble, McTeiyre, Dobbs)are very out of date. One of my friends discovered mold growing in his room at Dobbs. Pretty gross especially for a school such as Emory.
College Junior 2012-02-06T04:18:36Z
Not Accessible – Although there are decent food options in the Atlanta/Druid Hills area, they are mostly only accessible by car.
College Senior 2012-02-06T04:15:39Z
Much to Do – Atlanta is a very happening place with very much to do. From Midtown, to Buckhead, to Little Five, there is plenty to do and lots of great entertainment venues for all sorts of events.
College Junior 2012-02-06T04:15:06Z
The Weather and Atmosphere – Emory has had amazing weather 90% of the time that I've been here. It's amazing. Everyone just always seems to be in a good mood and there's always a good vibe around campus and always something going on. From Wonderful Wednesday to events at the DUC to the farmer's market, people are constantly enjoying themselves on campus.
College Junior 2012-02-06T04:11:45Z
Social Life – There are a lot of diverse racial groups on campus, but they tend to clump together. Groups can get very cliquey, however I find that once you get to know one person in a group, the rest sort of accept you and its really easy to get to know more people. There are a lot of wealthy people on campus but it would be fair to say that people of all economic backgrounds are represented.
College Junior 2012-02-06T04:08:22Z
The Duc – There's always something to get there, and its always open. The desserts are lacking sometimes but the duc staff is always great. Its so convenient when you just get out of practice or classes and you're starving!!
College Senior 2012-01-30T06:00:10Z
Few Options – There are a few options that get the job done. You have your Chipotle, Subway, and just about any other fast food chain. I would not say there are any signature Emory restaurants and that would be the only downfall

Parking on Emory's campus is relatively pricey. Be prepared to spend a bit of money for a parking pass if you are bringing a car to campus. A lot of upperclassmen will have a car considering this is the easiest way to get around Atlanta, particularly if looking to avoid MARTA. However, plenty of places to park in the parking decks - you will be assigned one deck to park in during registration but all decks are open and available to park in anytime after 4pm until the early morning.

So Many Classes, So Little Time. With a vast array of courses to choose from, Emory gives its students the possibility to take classes ranging from Biology to Psychology to Acting. There is even a Freshman Seminar dedicated to "Clowning" - with a seemingly unlimited selection of classes, students are encouraged to explored the different departments here at Emory.

The Melting Pot of Oxford – We had a freshmen seminar class in which we discussed these very topics. There are many international students at the Oxford campus of Emory University, and there are many different races present. There is a wide economic diversity within the students on campus, but all students interact well with one another and no one holds their class over one another. Everyone works equally hard and jobs are offered pretty fairly according to financial need. The homosexuals on campus are accepted and are not isolated from the heterosexuals. All in all Oxford provides a diverse campus in all these aspects and the students are all very friendly and inviting, and don't judge one another based on their race, sexual orientation, or economic background. It's a wonderful place to find your true friends and self and strive to be the best you can be.

Food Is Pretty Good. The dinning hall has pretty decent food choice. There is something for everyone. Plus, there are other outside food vendors that are located in the "food court",next to the hospital, that you have access t (i.e Chickfala, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, etc.)

Health & Safety:
Our Campus Is Pretty Protected. There are a few burglaries and and random acts of violence on campus, but it's only because the we are very open to the public; it is not secluded at all. We have a hospital, graduate school facilities, and the normal campus buildings that make our Emory so we constantly have security patrolling around.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
