Emory has been building underclassmen dorms for a while. The upperclassmen dorms could be updated, but they're still good.
College Junior 2013-07-31T20:35:54Z
There are many different choices as far as athletics.

I'm not really involved in Greek life, but I know it's pretty important on campus.
College Junior 2013-07-30T10:52:27Z
Greek life is something that if you would want to pursue is absolutely fine, but there are a couple sororities and fraternities that are known for their partying and people can see you as a frequent partier as a part of a certain frat/sorority. Greek life, however, is a good way to get to know people and create connections, especially for business relations in the future.

For the most part, I feel that Emory does try to accept a wide variety of students from different ethnic/racial backgrounds to a degree, and you will see a large amount of African Americans, Asians, as well as the standard amount of Caucasians. However, Hispanics seem to be heavily underrepresented. There generally is not as much mixing between the different ethnic groups, although many school groups do promote mixing to a certain degree. There is a wide variety of religious backgrounds and people seem to generally accept or ignore the different religious groups on campus.

All the buildings are made out of marble, and on the inside, each room or lecture hall or what have you is built like a museum gallery. The place is gorgeous, inside and out. The athletic center could use a bit more polishing, but that's really the only problem. Every building uses state-of-the-art air conditioning to rescue students and faculty alike from the humidity.

People on campus dress well, and there is an abundance of attractive students.

The campus is very well protected - I always feel safe as long as my doors are locked.
College Freshman 2013-07-29T15:31:27Z
It was not as easy as i expected. I got some but not quite enough.

Health & Safety:
Emory sends out alerts to everyone in the university about recent crimes or events that they feel the community should know. These happen with minimal frequency and usually don't involve Emory students. The most common event they report is theft. There are Emory police buttons all around campus and the campus is pretty well lit all around. I feel very safe on campus.

The workload is pretty heavy and can become overwhelming sometimes but Emory is such an amazing place with so many intelligent and helpful people that help is never out of reach and resources are endless. Professors are always eager to help if only you seek them out.

Guys & Girls:
Guys and girls are hard-working; everyone wants to get an "A". There are clicks which are definitely hard to break into thus many people may seem stuck-up when they really are not.

Diversity in National Origin, Race, and Religion exits in all majors, minors, colleges, etc.

Computers are brand new almost everywhere. They are up to date and very nice.
College Junior 2013-07-22T22:29:14Z
There are tons of bus stops, and the buses run according to schedule.
College Junior 2013-07-22T22:26:21Z
There are tons of places to eat off campus. Some places even offer discounts for students.
College Junior 2013-07-22T19:03:12Z
It get extrememly hot and humid here during the beginning of the school year and can get pretty windy during the fall and close to winter, but during spring it freshens up and becomes quite beautiful!
College Junior 2013-07-22T18:57:03Z
There is the DUC which is more like a cafeteria and generaly has pretty decent food. There are also a lot of good restaurants around and close that you would go to normally!

There are many computer labs on campus (pretty much every building has some computers for student use), but some of the labs/buildings have short hours. The library is open 24 hours, but finding an open computer can be hard during class hours and especially during midterms and final exams. Pretty much everyone has their own laptop, and the campus has WiFi (although it crashed a couple times). The only annoying thing was that 99% of the computers on campus are Macs, and I had used Windows all my life. If you don't bring a computer on campus and don't have a smartphone or a tablet, you might be slightly disadvantaged when it comes to getting things done on time, but if you hit the library at night, there are a lot of free computers. Having/not having a printer doesn't make much of a difference, as there are many printers on campus, but if you don't like paying for printing and are a procrastinator (like me), then having your own printer is very helpful. Most classes accept online submissions, but some still require you to hand in paper copies.

Health & Safety:
I always feel super-safe at Emory. There are blue police buttons around every corner that you can press whenever you feel unsafe, as well as SafeRide programs for whenever you are out late and don't feel safe coming back alone. You always get notified whenever there is a crime on or near campus, but so far, I've received only around five notifications, and all of the crimes happened in Atlanta in the middle of the night, not on campus. The campus is sort of in its own little bubble, somewhat isolated from Atlanta (but still inside Atlanta), so that you have access to everything while still feeling safe. In addition, you can probably spot campus police many times a day.

The weather is very nice at Emory, warm and pretty mild. The only downside is the spring, specifically pollen season. Everything gets covered in layers of pollen! I left my bike out for one hour during a class and when I came back, it had a small layer of pollen! Although it is a nightmare for people with allergies, it doesn't last very long. Also, in the spring and fall, the weather can get a little crazy - sweltering hot one day and freezing cold the next. However, I haven't experienced any big storms or severe weather here yet, and you don't have to pack a lot of winter clothes, which is a plus. You can often find people hanging out or studying outside on campus.

I am very happy as a music major at Emory. It does take a lot of time commitment, but music is my passion. I am in the process of declaring my chemistry major (for a double major), and if I could do it all over again, I would have spent more time on my chemistry major as my dream is to become a doctor (I would love to work with an organization like Doctors Without Borders). The music department is very helpful, but the chemistry department is not as helpful, perhaps because there are several chemistry majors but only a handful of music (voice) majors. I feel my college will be very helpful in finding a job in my field, as Emory has many connections and a large alumni network.
College Sophomore 2013-07-20T20:21:26Z
Being a music major at Emory is a lot of work, but it is definitely worth the experience. You have to take lots of classes that have low credit hours and have to spend a lot of extra time in the practice rooms, but the music faculty really cares about your progress and success, and there are lots of opportunities at Emory to practice your art, such as master classes, choirs and ensembles, a cappella groups, and weekly voice classes (in addition to weekly voice lessons). This program makes you well-rounded not only in knowledge and education of the field, but experience too! There are lots of opportunities for everyone, even freshmen or people who have never taken voice lessons before (I was both). The professors are active musicians and have had lots of experience in the field.
College Sophomore 2013-07-20T20:13:14Z
The music faculty was very helpful when declaring my music major. I had to declare it before starting college to have enough time to meet class requirements for the major and had to go through a rigorous audition. Staying a music major required taking lots of classes with low credit hours and lots of extra practice time, but the experience is worth it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
