About Emory University

Equal parts research community and institute of higher learning, the Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, provides students with an innovative liberal arts education that emphasizes interdisciplinary study, professional schools, and one of the Southeast’s leading healthcare systems.

The school was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church and takes pride in its affiliation with the United Methodist Church. Although programs are not religiously oriented, except those at the Chandler School of Theology, the school believes that an education can be a positive moral force in both society and personal lives of its students.

Academics at the school include a full range of programs, from undergraduate degrees to graduate and professional instruction. Many programs are cross-disciplinary, but are grounded in fields like the liberal arts, business, theology, and health care professions.

Study abroad opportunities are offered to students looking to become global citizens through study, service, and research.

More than 20 residence halls are available and are required for first-year and second-year students.

The school offers many scholarships, as well as federal and state grants and loans, to students eligible to receive financial aid.

Admissions are reviewed individually, meaning there are no minimum requirements for acceptance.

Overall Rating

The campus is beautiful, although there always seems to be some kind of construction going on to improve a building or landscaping. I loved the size of Emory - you always run into people you know around campus and it doesn't feel like you're one of a million students getting lost in a crowd. Studying abroad was probably the most memorable experience and Emory makes it very easy to go abroad almost anywhere in the world. I would highly recommend taking a tour of the campus before making your final decision on which school to attend - for most people I know, that's what really closed the deal for them and made Emory their top choice.
