I'm in the Film Studies department and absolutely love it! There are surprisingly a lot of film connections/opportunities at Emory, which I was shocked to discover since I originally thought LA and NY were the only film based cities. The department professors are all extremely intelligent in their specific areas and most are easily accessible. The classes are interesting, but the only negative is that they only have a few actual production classes. Luckily, they are adding more and more production classes as the department grows. They also have a Film and Media Management Concentration through the Business School which is a new addition to the Film Department. Overall, Emory's Film Department continues to grow and improve each year and I only can say great things about the professors.

There are people of many different races, but they don't make up that much of the student body. The campus is predominately caucasian and asian pacific islander.

The semester fee for students to park on campus is ridiculous. I think $650 dollars a semester is unnecessary. Students should not have to pay for parking when we already pay so much to attend the school to begin with. I think only visitors should have to pay. There are more than enough parking spaces that students shouldn't have to pay $650 to reserve a spot. That being said, there are several parking decks on campus that are conveniently located so you can quickly access all parts of campus.

The process is pretty much the same as any other school's process. It's a hassle.

No matter where you live, it will be cheaper than campus housing. It's kind of hard to get to campus if you don't have a car and aren't willing to bike.

Emory's cuts this year are ridiculous. They've cut majors lots of people were interested in like journalism, educational studies, visual arts, etc... There's so much focus on science and business here. Be careful if you're looking for anything else

You can have a good time, if you have money for a cab or upperclassmen friends with cars. The row get boring very quickly but there are some fun clubs in the area if you have a way to get to them. Make sure you go with friends, they're what really makes the experience.

If you know where to look, Atlanta has amazing food. 4 miles from my dorm is a spot called Mary Mac's Tea Room, best soul food I've had in life. There's something for every budget. Be careful of over indulging in delivery though, the sushi, Chinese, and diner delivery will get you that freshman 15 :(

Parking at Emory is fairly manageable. After purchasing a parking pass access to the parking deck pretty much ensures that you will find a parking spot. However, during the class day parking begins slightly more difficult to find but still usually available.

I am plased with my major program at Emory. There is a wide variety of majors to decide from as you enter Emory. I am a Political Science major and found many interesting classes involving my major from National Politics to Political Science Methods to Modern Political Thought that Emory offers. I plan to become a lawyer after undergraduate and the Pre Law study also gears me toward my career goal (also Pre Business and Pre Med offered)

Guys & Girls:
Emory University has coined the term Emory goggles for the rising interest in average looking people. It's a very average community, but everyone is smart, if you're into smart people, and we have a hefty asian population. But really, the Emory Campus is very diverse. You're sure to find what you're looking for.

Saferide and shuttles are available most of the time. The only time that is inconvenient is on the weekends.
College Junior 2013-02-05T01:22:30Z
Mostly sunny all the time. Coming from a northern state, it is a nice change in the winter. The weather makes it easier to study because it is not gloomy all the time.
College Junior 2013-02-05T01:21:11Z
Very few Gluten Free options. Dining halls are not open at good which makes it easy to spend unneeded amounts of money on off campus food. Cox and Zaya are good but overpriced. Cox is not open on the weekends. DUC is open most of the time, but the food gets very old fast as well as worse in quality as the semester progresses.

Freshman year dorms are the best; try to find the time to get into the themed housing because they are better than regular housing. As you get older, the good housing options dwindle. Fraternity/sorority housing is very good though.

There are some of the best teachers there. There are a variety of programs that cater to one's total development including study abroad programs and campus life is conducive to healthy living

Aside from a little drinking, this isn't a problem

Emory is a dry campus. If you want to partake in illegal activities, you can find them, but it's not as big as other colleges.

Health & Safety:
Safety is okay, sometimes at the parties some people get raped/drugged, which is definitely NOT okay. There are occasional muggings, but if you keep your head about you, you should be okay. Police are good and friendly, and let little things like being drunk slide as long as you're trying to get back to your dorm.

The DUC is kinda bad, lost 25 lbs (6'2 185-->160lbs) my first semester (not even the full year mind you) because the lines are too long, food isn't good (I'm picky but not THAT picky), or its inconvenient (HAVE to eat at the cafeteria, can't take it back)
COX = good, good food, able to take back, etc.
If you get the chance definitely buy swipes and not unlimited swipes instead.

The Dobbs University Center (DUC) dinning hall has a wide variety of food options: "the classics" station, vegan station, grill station, salad bar, and dessert bar. If this selection of food gets old, I enjoy eating at any other restaurant in the Emoy Village. Chipotle is always a hit among students and my self included.

I am from Georgia, so I am used to the bipolar weather here. It can be chilly in the morning, rain, get hot in the afternoon, and be freezing at night all in one day. Just make sure to have an outfit for every occasion. Wearing layers really helps. Oh, and if it "snows" (I.e. even less than an inch) Atlanta pretty much shuts down. But most likely, be prepared for warm weather ; that's why it's called hotlanta !

You are not only accepted no matter what, but there is also usually a student group for you regardless of your background.
College Sophomore 2013-01-08T18:09:31Z
The weather is usually great apart from the occasional rainstorm, but it is never too far to class.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
