Student Reviews Ratings data provided by Unigo
Best thing is class sizes and faculty. I'd either move emory a little closer into atlanta, or let freshman have cars on campus. I think the size of the school is just right. I spend most of my time either in my room or the fraternity house. There is no school pride most likely because there is no football team.
Aaron Freshman
The best thing about Emory is the plethora of activities and opportunities available for people to do; the problem is that most people don't take advantage of most of them. If I had to change something, I would do something to push people out of their comfort zones and get to know people they normally would not/do not talk to because I think that hearing different perspectives on anything really helps a person grow. I feel that Emory is just right. It is the perfect combination because I always have a class where I know at least two people, and there are always people who I do not know....
Ami/Amy Sophomore
I love the size of emory. i feel that for me it is the perfect environment. Students here work hard and play hard. We know when it is time to study and how to reward our studying with great social activities. I spend most of my time on campus outside, enjoying the atlanta weather with my friends. I think that although a lot of emory students have pride for our school, school spirit at athletic events must be enhanced. I think that the campus community on emory is very unusual. I think that there is a strong connection and great campus community that is hard to find at other universities. Frequent complaints that I hear from freshman is that the food is not great. There should be more meal options for freshman and upperclass students. The DUC is repetitive and unappetizing.
