Female Biology Major C/O 2021
How would you describe the overall social scene at Emory?
It’s not amazing. You do have something to do every weekend, and it’s not pathetic. Emory has a lot of events if you love going to seminars, attending workshops, or talks from different scholars. One good thing about Emory is we have a school-sponsored shuttle system that runs to happening places in the city. We’d get free transportation for something going on, like a food truck festival. They realized since we’re not in the middle of the city, maybe some of these things would be out of reach for some students.
To what extent do people of different races and sexual orientations mix socially?
It’s a really warm environment. There’s an office, club, and community for each identity, and they host so many events. There are nights where you can go have food and talk to people. I love the diversity when it comes to different places, even in the United States. Emory is huge on LGBTQ support.
To what extent do international students mix with domestic students?
I don’t think it’s that big of an issue. No one section is hostile toward the other, it’s all very chill. Of course, I still see the international kids sticking with each other a little more than the domestic students, but I feel that is natural. I have a lot of domestic friends, and my roommate is from Georgia. It depends how outgoing you are, opposed to how the communities feel about each other.
