I went to a tour during Spring Break with my school. It was beginning to sprinkle, but out tour guides really helped to lighten up the mood. They were incredibly kind and were considerate of us when walking througout campus. Asided from our guides, the camous was very beautiful. The facilities were clean and even the food was delicios! PS. They have an adorable waffle maker with the Emory logo on it!
Review Emory University
Emory University is the place to be for pre-professional students who still want to have fun. Campus life embodies the "work hard play hard" mentality, asking hard work of its students and rewarding them with countless opportunities for fun. Spring concert almost never disappoints, and greek life is still an option at this liberal oriented institution. Moreover, students get the opportunity of learning under professionals who are world class in their fields, forming relationships and experiences that will define their careers. An all around wonderful place to be, within the city of Atlanta, Emory University is the place to come.
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!
