Reviews for Emory University
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.
Most of my classes were small at around 30-50 students. there were a few core courses or pre-requesites that were auditorium style with several hundred students, but all of the professors held office hours throughout the week so there were always opportunities for one-on-one sessions to ask questions or get assistance with assignments. Workload was average but challenging and most of the professors were extremely passionate about the subject matter they were teaching. I attended the business school which I loved - you get to know everyone else in your classes very well through group projects and presentations and most of the classes are small in size and very interactive.
Emory is in the heart of Atlanta, so there's never a lack of things to do around campus. There are many bars/restaurants and shopping malls within a short cab ride. The Greek system at Emory is not as large as it is at other schools, but many students do participate. However, there are a multitude of other groups and activities available so you would not feel like you are missing out if you choose not to join a Sorority/Fraternity.
