I really like the community I have built. No matter what your background is, you can find a space for yourself here.
The food can be eh on the weekends which is very annoying because then you have to spend money ordering out.
This is a very hard school and academics are tough (depending on your major), but you will get through it. The best thing about Emory is the people you meet and you're able to connect with individuals who are like you. For example, I'm a Black student and there is a close-knit Black community here that is welcoming. The organizations and the social life is good here, but you have to put in the effort!
The professors can be hard and terrible teachers. For context, I am on the pre-med track. I've taken classes where I have had to teach myself the content. There are a lot of professors who don't care either, but so many professors are super nice (normally, ones outside of STEM) and are able to work with you. The dining food is not easily accessible at all times considering how much we pay for it, but it's alright.
Most professors are great and easily accessible to help you when needed. The community overall is amazing and very welcoming.
Mental health resources are needed due to the pressure and intensity of the school academics however, the resources provided by the school are lacking in many areas.
Great research experiences on campus. You can get class credit towards your major with your research.
Not enough work-study opportunities.
The campus is beautiful, and there are many opportunities for those that apply themselves. It's a small campus, so be careful who you lie with.
Often management is out-of-touch, and Emory as a private institution is greedy, often charging for everything.
Pretty small, very pre-med and business-oriented, tends to not care too much about other majors.
If you are not pre-med or business, your major won't be supported well.
