Emory University Reviews
I am a third year varsity student athlete at Emory University, and I am glad I chose Emory. The campus is great, the academics and athletic programs are amazing as well. However, Emory is not the place to come if you want football and school spirit. This is a highly academic school and whatever you choose to study will be a challenge. Campus life is easy to get involved in, however since it is a small campus, a lot of the activities get old after freshman year. The Atlanta area around campus and night life is great if Emory parties start getting old. Definitely consider what your priorities are before choosing Emory. If challenging academics and quality professors are important, then this is the school for you. However, if football, school spirit, and other aspects of college life are important, then take this all into consideration before committing to Emory! If you are unsure, then I definitely recommend taking a tour of our campus!
I'm a freshman of Oxford College of Emory University and I have to say my transition into college was great. Emory has a safe environment where one can make valuable friends through just roommates, study groups, clubs or even in the dining hall. The professors are wonderful and passionate about teaching. They want to see you excel. Emory also has a beautiful campus! If your looking for somewhere small to start off your college experience go to Oxford College which is also a liberal arts college or if you want something big go to Emory College Arts & Science.
Coming from an international high school, I was amazed at the diversity of the student body at this program. My peers were academically gifted, artistically talented, and athletically skilled. It is the culmination of these experiences that will make you love Emory. The experiences I shared with fellow students and the Emory faculty have propelled me as well as some other seniors to apply early decision to Emory! I remain in contact with my professor and the friends.
