Emory University Reviews
Review Emory University
I have had a fantastic experience at Oxford College of Emory University. Professors here are brilliant, available to students, and committed to teaching undergraduates before their personal studies and research. The atmosphere is quaint and home-like, and I've never felt unsafe on campus. Oxford is great for freshmen and sophomores who are eager to get involved on their campuses and get into leadership positions early. I feel like I have community here, which is something rare to experience in your first year of college. Food is fantastic, buildings are beautiful, and the small campus makes it easy to get to classes on-time. I would definitely recommend Oxford at Emory for your undergraduate experience!
I really enjoy the classes at Emory--there's a wide range of classes, including the hardcore science/premed courses to classes focusing on the Japanese animator Miyazaki and classes on how to be a clown. It's great! Professors here are generally very dedicated and passionate about their work and are excellent at teaching (they're clear and organized); they really are concerned with what students learn and willingly help out if a student is struggling. Classes themselves range depending on their popularity, from some as small as 15 to some as large as 100+.
Overall Emory has been a fantastic school in every way: academics are excellent, campus is breathtaking, professors are friendly and want to get to know students, etc. The atmosphere is very competitive which, for the most part, is beneficial and encourages students to work their hardest. However, this competitive atmosphere also produces extreme amounts of stress for students, making testing weeks somewhat miserable. However, Emory's stellar reputation along with its Atlanta location makes it one spectacular university.
