Emory is accepting of all sexual orientations. There are several LGBT clubs and organizations, and these students have never complained of any discrimination against them. All in all, Emory is very welcoming to everyone, gay or straight.
Although Emory is primarily a liberal-minded university, one would not easily be able to determine this. While there are groups and clubs that protest or boycott certain organizations, these leftist voices are not overbearing, and the school itself does not impose its views upon the students in any way.
With a tuition rate as high as Emory's, the school is bound to have many affluent students who come from wealthy families. This is especially seen in Greek life, as the fraternity parking lots are loaded with expensive luxury vehicles. Overall, most students appear to come from comfortable economic backgrounds, but at the same time, many students also receive financial aid.
Most Common Religions
Emory does have a large Jewish population from the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas. Christians also make up a large part of the student population on campus, and there are several fellowship groups that hold worship services open to all students.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Emory's minority clubs have several houses on campus for group members. There are also black fraternities and sororities, as well as historically Jewish fraternities and sororities. These minority clubs, as well as others, such as the Indian Cultural Exchange, sponsor various events and fundraisers throughout the year and generally draw a good crowd for their events.
