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.

Emory is great. At emory, you get the oppurtunity to change yourselves, to be a better person, better student, better friend. The professors are wonderful and always be there when the students need them. I love every moment in emory. Every day I leave home and know that I get to learn a new thing in emory. And the food here is great too!
I attended Emory University from Fall 2013 to Spring 2017. My major was Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology, and I was very involved on and off campus during my time there in various extracurricular activities and student organizations. The school is great and filled with students who are pursuing graduate school degrees, whether that be in medicine or law, and the business school also has great connections and job placements after graduation.

My experience at Emory was very positive; the academic environment is challenging, but fair, and you always feel like you have the resources to do well. The one aspect of Emory that I would like to see improved is the student body and school spirit. There are great benefits of interracial dialogue and activism on campus, but students can tend to form groups and 'bubbles' on campus because of this as well. It doesn't help that Emory doesn't have a football team or prominent sports team either, but overall, Emory was a great academic experience.
