Yes, Emory offers great academics but it has become a place of intolerance. The school gave permission to a Palestinian group to put "eviction" notices on all of the Jewish students doors. I find it appalling that Emory is happy to take the Jewish students money but will not support them on campus. I have taken Emory off my son's list of potential colleges.

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.
The professors and education at this school are great, but as for everything else... its pretty terrible.
There is no school spirit on this campus. Initially, I thought this wouldn't be an issue because I wasn't looking for a party school, and I really have no interest in going out to parties. However, without a sports team, and a central hangout spot on campus, there is no sense of unity between the students. Any sort of social life is centered around Greek life because that's the only thing there is.

The food on campus is absolutely terrible. Have you heard about the health inspections done on the dining halls and cafes on campus? Yeah, they failed health inspections. Also, the chicken is always severely undercooked; its always pink.

There's always construction on campus which makes it hard to get around and enjoy the campus without noise.
