Atlanta is a rockin city with a great music scene. But, Emory is located a bit outside the city, so unless you have a car you probably won't go past the immediate town, which has a nice smattering of restaurants and a college bar, but you will get tired of what is there by the end of sophmore year.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on Emory's campus, and the police let the frat's alone, so partying goes mostly unchecked. This is good, but can also be bad, as students drinking too much or being sexually assaulted at the frats is not entirely uncommon.

The best options are not centrally located so most students find themselves limited

Emory will give you what FAFSFA says you need in aid or loans
College Junior 2013-05-22T20:19:39Z
There's something for everyone. I love my major and advisers.

Classes are challenging and engaging. Rarely can you go wrong in class selections.

Freshmen cannot have cars on campus. Second years and up can park, but the prices are outrageous.

Guys & Girls:
The campus has all types of people. There are nerds who never go out and people who just party all he time. Also there are also people in Between who can juggle party and studies extremely well. It is diverse with alot if options.

There is always something to do with different festivities in the area.

Awesome! Atlanta has an endless amount of stuff to do, from shopping to dining to museums to clubs. Emory often offers discounted tickets to Atlanta attractions, and the Emory Experience shuttle takes students for free to something in Atlanta once a month. The nice thing is that Emory's in Atlanta's Druid Hills suburb, so while the city is extremely accessible (15 minute drive), you don't have to deal with the cons of having a college in the middle of a city (for example, the campus is very cohesive, safe, and outdoorsy. It's got a life of its own).

Public transportation is awesome; you really don't need a car. All the Emory shuttles are free, and the GA Tech one and the Emory Hospital midtown one will take you to Atlanta. Two MARTA (Atlanta's public transportation system) lines run through the school; you can use these to get pretty much anywhere. As for the campus itself, it's 15 minutes walkable in any direction, so you certainly don't need a car just to get around.

Financial aid process was smooth for me. Most important tip is getting everything in on time; go for way ahead of the deadline!

the print center is really cheap, the computer labs are very reliable, sometimes crowded though, great atmosphere. computers are hardly ever in disrepair. the network was down a couple times, but not for long.

I have enjoyed all of my professors very much thus far. I had one grad student professor that was awful, but he just couldn't teach; he was still very knowledgable.
College Sophomore 2013-04-30T14:59:12Z
There are many research opportunities even as a freshman, you just have to make an effort to find a professor. This gives you valuable experience for higher-level classes, the real world, and grad school. Classes are small and very good and the work load is not bad at all.
College Sophomore 2013-04-30T14:56:49Z
It is a great thing for some people, but not me. Though I am not a fan of it, I realize that Greek life does good things around campus and promotes networking. It does not dominate at Emory though.
College Sophomore 2013-04-30T14:51:12Z
Hardly ever bad weather, classes are close together, beautiful spring and fall weather. I love it here!

The financial aid office at the School of Divinity is very helpfull. The school-wide financial aid office works hand in hand with your needs. Everything is basically handled online, so check your status regularly.
College Junior 2013-04-30T00:40:48Z
Paid parking is what I use. There is public transportation and shuttles for on campus maneuvering. Get to campus at least 15 -20 minutes before class begins.

Although Emory has a wide selection of on-campus housing, off-campus housing is generally very easy to find and as affordable (and often more affordable) as living on-campus. Living off-campus is incredibly common at Emory, as apartments, houses, and condos are all over the area, and are generally very safe. They are sometimes less convenient than living on campus, however, as it is more difficult to access campus resources when one is further displaced.

Emory is filled with students from a variety of different ethnic, religious, political, and economic backgrounds. While there is at times a pervasive upper-middle class student culture, the school is, as a whole, a mix of very different people from extremely heterogeneous backgrounds, which leads to an immensely rich and engaging student life.
Recent Alumnus 2013-04-20T02:26:07Z
Although the campus life is frequently divided between social groups, Emory consistently affords ample opportunity to challenge oneself academically. With frequent academic events and speakers, Emory is an incredibly rich academic community, with students who spark and engage in important—and often difficult—discussions.

Emory, as a high-powered research institution and active academic center, is filled with state-of-the-art amenities for any type of student. The WoodPEC, an extensive athletics center, is filled to the brim with diverse athletic facilities and equipment, from dance to scuba, while the student center provides an outdoor pool and various athletic courts. With a consistently updated campus, Emory is never behind in research technology, and has an extensive and impressive library, with ample study space.

I'm in the Goizueta Business school, so it's a really great program and does a great job of helping students prepare for and get internships. It has a great job placement rating, at it provides a really top-notch education. However, it is a bit intense at times and the curve promotes extreme competitiveness, which sometimes works against people.
College Junior 2013-04-19T00:48:25Z
They put a lot of emphasis on diversity at Emory, and are very accepting of differences, but there are definitely majorities. Most people are Jewish or Asian. So, while we approve of diversity, we don't necessarily have all that much of it. Sexual orientation is not really an issue, which is nice. Political beliefs are generally not talked about as much, so I'm not sure how diverse we are.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
