There Are Options... but the Good Ones Are Expensive – The good apartments that are really nearby are more expensive, so if you are going to live off campus you would mostly find reasonable housing further away... also there are some really sketchy buildings once you get out of the expensive range so be careful about the building you are choosing.

Greeks Are Cool – Honestly, the Greeks at Emory are the prettiest, richest, and most exclusive people on campus. They are all very prideful of their respective sorority/fraternity and flaunt it in a variety of creative ways such as clothing or shoes. However, they are all nice people and generally chill.

Lack of Football Team – Emory doesn't have a football team so we don't have much school spirit compared to larger institutions. However, the Woodruff PE Center (commonly known as the WoodPec) is a great facility that is opened late at night and offers a variety of track fields, swimming pools, tennis courts, and more athletic facilities.

There is a saying at Emory that almost everyone will hear said to them, "Looks like you've finally got your Emory Goggles on". This unique phrased that was coined by the student population refers to the inevitable fact that once you start attending Emory as a student, you're ability to judge anyone's "looks" deteriorates. A guy that was once recognized as a 4 our of a 10 point scale in terms of looks will be bumped up to at least a 6 or 7 at Emory.

Every facility neccesary to provide comfort and resources to students are found at Emory. Each of these facilities are equipt for student success. We have two student centers where many of our events are held, a gymnasium equipt with a basketball court, a work-out room with a dance studio!

Health & Safety:
At Oxford College of Emory, there was only one major criminal attempt on campus throughout the year. Campus police are actively circling campus including parking lots through-out the entire day. At the start of the semester, campus police host seminars to educate students about their procedures. Emergency call poles are everywher around campus, always within reach. I feel very safe at Oxford, safer than I feel at home!

Emory University was my dream school from the start of my search. With it's major advancements related to medicine, I knew it was the place for me. Also, as an undergraduate, I was able to pick between Emory's two state ofd the art campuses and I chose Oxford. At Oxford, the campus is small, comfortable, safe, beautiful, and interesting. The people at Oxford college are loving, accepting, and caring towards one another. The majors/ programs of study offered at Emory allows for everyone to desginate his or her desired major. There are tutors known as Student Instructors for every subject, a writing center and a math center right on campus. The library is filled with thousands of resources for research, including librarians with helping hearts. The food is awsome in the dinning halls and an after hours spot is even open for late-night snackers. Emory as a whole is a wonderful school, and Oxford itself is the best experience I have met in a long time!

There are not many things that people under 21 cant do around Emory. Most of the club parties around atlanta are 18+ just 21+ to drink. The on campus parties are fun for everyone. Freshman aren't suppose to attend them until october but they can still get in if they want to. Overall night life at emory is pretty good but it can get repetitive after a while.

At Emory University, I would say there is more cultural diversity than race alone. I have to say that the major racial groups would be koreans, jewish caucasions and indian people. Many people at Emory are of the the jewish religion and are economoically wealthy. There seems only a small group of LGBT persons.

Nice Underclassmen Dorms – The freshman dorms at Emory University are very nice, better than the choices for upperclassmen dorms. Emory is constantly building new freshman dorms of great quality. My freshman dorm was a nice size with good storage. The only issue I had was with the water temperature during certain times of the day but the problem was fixed second semester. The social atmosphere is very nice. There are lounges in every dorm to hang out in or study. The housing process is very organized and overall probably one of the better on campus housing of many colleges.

The weather is very unpredictable. It is wise to always have an umbrella with you, because you never know when a random rain shower is going to occur.

The facilities are absolutely fabulous at Emory. There is a planetarium, and the gym is unbeatable. The library is an excellent place to study, either in groups or individually. All the classrooms and the computer lab are also equipped with the latest technology. Virtually all the buildings were funded by Coca Cola, so you can expect the best.

Students often refer to Emory as a "bubble". There is virtually no nightlife, save for fraternity row, on or even near campus. However, downtown Atlanta has fabulous clubs and bars, if you are 21 or older or able to venture out on a Thursday night.

Dining at Dobbs University Center – First and second year students have dining plans at the Dobbs University Center. There is not a lot of variety in the food and its cleanliness is not at the level that it should be. Those who serve food at DUC have also not treated me in the manner that someone paying $4000 a year for the food deserves. However, the facility where the students eat is top-notch. The service, quality and variety of the food is not.

Good College in General – Emory provides your typical college experience with an extra emphasis on academics. Emory tries to take the academic seriousness of an ivy league school, so that can have an effect on you experience if that wasn't something you were looking for

Hard Work – Classes at Emory require a lot of work, there are very few "easy" classes and they almost always go to seniors anyway. Work load is actually kind of heavy, you'll find yourself spending nights doing school work about 5 out of the seven days of the week, and that's not even counting exam periods.

Good Overall Package – Emory doesn't have the best anything but everything is overall great. This is the same when it comes to facilities, Emory doesn't have the best gym or student center or library, but all of those facilities are still pretty good.

Daddys Money Buys a Lot – Many of the kids on campus never had freedom in high school so they go crazy at Emory, kind of sad... They have so much excess cash they can buy anything but you wont really know who does what unless you're involved too because people hide it really well.

Required Freshman and Sophomore Year – ...But this is when you'll be partying the most in campus at Frat houses or getting a cab to Maggies and it helps you bond with people so it's a good set up, plus almost all Freshman dorms are brand new.

We Are in Atlanta, What Do You Think? In Atlanta, parking is sparse already and being next to major hospitals and the CDC does not help the situation. The university does the best it can in accommodating students and faculty with parking. I park right behind the Nursing building so I have never had an issue. They have a great shuttle and bus system on campus to take down driving and parking issues. They will fine you and ticket you if you are in the wrong location, even if you are only there for 5 minuets. Public transportation is widely used by students to avoid the nearly $700 fee for a specific parking location.

Prep Prep Prep – Preppy is the most typical look of both male and female students at Emory University. Also, unique and hippie styles are encouraged. It would be odd to see a male or female dressed as a redneck or punk/goth. It is pretty easy to fit in as long as you are preppy and fratty.

Academic Excellence – Emory University welcomes all people. It is dominantly white and asian students but invites all ethnic groups. It also does not allow one's religion to play a factor in the admission process. Most attendee's are from a upper-middle to upper class status. However, they do try to not let money be the reason that one does not attend. They look for people with a strong academic background which adds to the prestige and rigor of the University. Many of Emory's schools rank among the top 10 in the nation. We are located in Atlanta so topics such as sexual orientation, race, religion, and political beliefs are not a big deal and do not matter to Emory.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
