Emory University Reviews
I'm currently a sophomore at Oxford College. During my freshman year, I was very easily able to get involved on campus, and since the first day, I found it incredibly easy to make friends! That's one of the nice aspects of the small campus. My professors so far have all been so passionate, caring, and overall great. I think the dining hall is pretty good, and the dorm that I live in is really nice. As for the social/party scene, it depends on what you choose to involve yourself in; if there's a will, there's a way, so I've personally had a ton of fun during my time here.
I'm currently a sophomore at Oxford College. Overall, the university is amazing. However, if you are looking for the stereotypical, television college experience then Emory University is not your place. You would do better at your local state institution. However, if you are looking to surround yourself with some of the world's greatest intellectuals, and some who are lacking, then Emory is your place. Beautiful Campus, amazing professors and staff, and amazing students. Part scene here is below average. Honestly, just like anywhere, you get whatever you put in. If your seek then you shall find.
Because of the campus, people, and opportunities, Emory is truly an incredible university! The campus is definitely one of the most beautiful and safest campuses I have seen. New buildings are constantly being built and old buildings are being remolded. The people are truly the heart of the institution. Students and faculty provide a welcoming and intellectually stimulating environment.
