It's Okay, but Better Than Other Colleges – I've been to several colleges around states and I have to admit Emory has really good campus food compare to the other colleges. Breakfast is repetitive but there are many variation when it comes to lunch and dinner.

Not That Strict – Emory really protects its students. If you are drunk, feel free to call the escort, they will not report you.

Professors are extremely helpful. Classes are very interesting and you learn a lot without being very stressed.

Participation Is Really Oprtional – Greek life is not that important in Emory life. People in greek life are not exclusive, and they have tons of friends outside of their system so there is no need to be part of it. Greek people are friendly and are part of emory rather than part of their frat or sor.

New New and New – All computers are very new, actually we just got another collection of new Macs in library. Macbooks are also on lend in the lib.

Not Many Places to Eat Off Campus – There are not many places to eat off campus. The Emory Village is very dead (the area right off campus). But there's is always campusfood.com

Most of the Things Are New – Emory is a university that is constantly under construction. Most of the facilities are new, if not remodelled.

It Happens – It happens, but it's not that bad. Not that many people do it.

Great If You Are a Party Person – Rating nightlife is something that is really subjective. As long as you are a party person who loves to go out and find new people, Emory is great for you, in fact, you'll be happy anywhere.

Lots of Options – Public transportation is really good. We have Marta which are a combination of buses and trains, easy access to taxis and a Zip Car program.

Varsity athletics here are really quite poor. We have men and women's baskeball, men and women's soccer, women's volleyball, men and women's tennis, men's baseball, men's golf, men and women's swimming and diving, women's softball, men and women's cross country, and men's track and field, none of which are particularly successful except for volleyball, tennis, swimming and golf. However, there are a plethora of club and intramural sports that are awesome.

Surrounding Areas – Atlanta is AMAZING. The clubs are infamous, the food is delicious and the people are... interesting. Check out Little 5 Points if you ever get the chance. If you want to get pierced, tattooed or just want to people watch, that's the place to go.

It's Atlanta. 'Nuff Said. Weather here is awesome. It can get cold, but for the most part, we're always treated to nice 65-70 degree weather up until holiday breaks.

There are so many different types of people here in terms of race, religion, socioeconomic status, etc. But sometimes, especially in terms of race, you notice it. Everyone is aware of their classmates, but tend to stick with their own ethnic group. It's particularly bad with the international and/or Asian students here. And I'll admit, I'm Korean and for my first year, I stuck with mostly Koreans but I've really tried to break out a little for my second year.

Health & Safety:
Very Safe.. Emory has lights everywhere and our security bubble is pretty legit. The Escort system this year was a little inconvenient this year with up to hour long waits. But even though I thought I'd be using it a lot this year, I've realized that Emory campus feels really safe even at night because of everyone else walking around.

Emory has cracked down hard on Greek life recently. The new GLA points system limits how many parties a fraternity can throw per semester, the Row is now off limits to freshmen until after fall break, and a couple of fraternities have been kicked off campus. There are so many rules that have to be followed now that throwing an on-campus party is no longer fun—it's just a huge liability. You can't have music after 2 a.m., there's no liquor allowed at all, and if any freshman gets in trouble for drinking and says what house they were at, that fraternity gets in trouble. Rush is 100 percent dry, and Emory actually called the cops when it got word of an APES rush event off campus this year. I would seriously reconsider before you pledge a fraternity at Emory now.

The computer network is excellent. However, lab space is very limited, so students should bring a computer.

The restaurants in Emory Village are decent and a good option for those who are sick of dining hall food. Panera, Starbucks, a Chinese Restaurant, and pizza are all decent and within walking distance. Ordering food is also a popular option for students. Atlanta has tons of great restaurants further from campus, but unfortunately they're only really accessible to those with cars.

The new freshman dorms are beautiful. Few, Evans, and New Turman are your best options as far as looks, amenities, and location. As far as old freshmen dorms go, avoid Dobbs, which has tiny rooms, and Harris, which is really dark. Trimble and McTeiyre are also small but have good locations, and Complex (Thomas, Hopkins, and Smith) is far away from the others but has big rooms with lots of storage space. Upperclass housing is all pretty good (except for the Old Turman Buildings), but it's not guaranteed after sophomore year.
Recent Alumnus 2009-03-27T15:36:05Z
Try and apply for Few, Evans, and New Turman since they are the newest and have the largest rooms. Complex and Harris are not bad places to live, they are just large and somewhat un-unified. Avoid Dobbs.

The facilities here are unparalleled. The athletic center boasts an olympic size pool, a great workout area, and tons of tennis courts and classrooms for yoga, pilates, etc. The Clairmont campus also houses a beautiful outdoor pool, workout center, and basketball courts with a pretty decent restaurant that freshmen use to get away from the DUC every once in a while.

Cox Hall has a really, really nice, super high-tech computer lab with meeting rooms fully wired with the lastest AV equipment for small groups to meet in and classrooms with similarly high-tech equipment for larger groups and review sessions. It's usually busy but rarely crowded. The whole campus is wireless, and the connection is pretty good.

Freshman cannot have a car, and it sucks to have a car any other year. Driving in Atlanta is a nightmare. Public transportation is much less of a hassle than having a car on campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
