Socially Tolerant, Academically Strict – In terms of the social scene, Emory tends to be tolerant as long as no one is making a scene and no one is being harmed. Protests and demonstrations are allowed as long as one follows the guidelines previously set forth by the school. Academically, the school is very strict about integrity issues and will press honor council charges very readily on seemingly-undeserving students.

Drugs Mostly in Frat Houses – Drug use is somewhat prevalent among certain frat houses. Outside of these, use of marijuana and alcohol consumption is common and readily available to those who seek it, as I would imagine the case would be at any college.

Be warned – There are a lot of people here who do coke.. some even drink it

Very Easy to Declare Major – Very easy to declare a major, just have to fill out a paper and submit it.

Easy to Get Away With Drinking/Drugs – I've rarely heard of students getting arrested for drinking/drug-use, and the school has medical amnesty.

Good Technology, Wireless Can Be Slow on Clairmont – The computers are all pretty much Macs, and you can find any program/technology in certain labs. Printing is a bit pricey; wireless can be slow on Clairmont Campus

Not Bad at All – The transportation system at Emory is not bad at all. There are shuttle buses running to various places on campus for your convenience and they have a shuttle running late at night if you do not feel safe walking by yourself to your dorm or another building. It is provided to you as a part of your tuition. The shuttles also go to various locations in the city as part of the "Emory Experience" which is a great way to get off campus and explore the city.

The computers on campus are pretty up-to-date with regard to their operating systems and technological capabilities. The computer labs are fairly available however, they get crowded easily during finals and midterms. Printing, just as on every college campus, costs however, it is typically paid for using money pre-loaded onto your Emory Card. The network on campus is reliable however, the speed slows down when wireless capabilities from printers interfere with the campus wireless network. I would recommend bringing a laptop as it makes it easier to do your work without having to leave your room to find a computer lab or available computer. I would not recommend getting a printer unless you know that your class(es) will require you to print many papers or information. Otherwise you can share with a roommate (or get your own if you do not feel too comfortable doing so). ;)

Normal GA weather, but we're above the gnat line so it's not too buggy. Classes don't get canceled too often.

Tiny Campus – Tiny campus, so you don't need to drive anywhere. When you go off-campus (remembering I'm at their Oxford branch) there are free shuttles to Emory Main and to Wal Mart.

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – I'm at the Oxford branch of Emory, and it's a small town. We can walk across campus at night alone without any trouble, and the police are generally pretty helpful.

Drugs Not Here – People do not really do drugs at emory just lots of drinking and some pot.

Parking and price of a parking spot is ridiculous.

Advice: Buy a pair of rainboots. Georgian weather is sunny and gorgeous about 70 percent of the time (which makes the campus even prettier!), but it rains more than I had been prepared for. Nothing too bad, no flooding or anything, but it is useful to have a pair of rainboots and an umbrella in case the weather decides to turn around.

I am beginning my Emory career at Oxford and I LOVE it! I did NOT want to go here at first because I thought it was too small but now I am so happy I did. The campus size seems way too small at first but it is really perfect. Super convenient as you can get anywhere on campus in 5 min or less and it's very easy to make friends here. I feel that I am getting an excellent education here!

Lots of Options – Emory has main campus Emory but also Oxford college as well which is great :)

I've heard of incidents occurring but overall I feel pretty safe here.

I thought the process was good - I was offered plenty coming in to Emory. I would just make sure you do your FAFSA and get your stuff done ASAP so there won't be any problems.

It's Low Key but There – Emory is pretty drug-free (We are actually going smoke-free next year). Some kids do weed and such but it's not nothing too horrible.
College Junior 2011-12-04T00:13:59Z
Pretty Decent – There are plenty of options for students outside of Emory. I see apartment complexes and other places to live in around campus. Students walk from them all the time.

Greek life here is not bad at all. Ranging from a wide variety of Fraternities, almost anyone can find a fraternity they fit into.

Living in the new dorms is amazing. Everything is eco-friendly and the new buildings are LEED certified. The Longstreet Means lobby features a large gas fireplace with a stone mantle. Every room on campus features a sink, heating, and air conditioning.

Smart Students, and Campus Getting Better and Better – Year after Year, Emory continues to evolve into a better internationally-renowned research university. The facilities are wonderful, the campus beautiful and opportunities are quite good. You won't be sorry you came here for an education.

Plenty of Options – At Emory, you are in the cool intown area of Atlanta. The Decatur Square offers several dining options, as well as the Virginia Highland area. Emory Village, adjacent to the campus offers several great options ranging from pizza to coffee shops to burgers, sandwiches and Mexican and Asian noodle houses. Plenty of options!

Everywhere on Campus – Computers are very visible and located throughout campus in all the needed places.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
