Reasons to attend and to not attend Emory University
- “The campus is beautiful. We have marble buildings and every year I’ve been here they’ve been building new buildings.”
- “The quality of professors you get is unparalleled and they care about your success.”
- “Great financial aid.” [The average Emory College financial aid package is $45,696. Emory is committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need of accepted domestic students.]
- “It’s a very diverse space with different identities represented.” [The class of 2018 was 37% White and 22% Asian, 32% came from the Southeast, and 18% were international.]
- “Emory’s location is very, very good. It has a traditional campus but is in a major city. It has the perfect balance.”
- “Emory is becoming a well-renowned and prestigious university. Your degree will be pretty valuable as far as name recognition and career prospects are concerned.”
To Not Attend
- “Sometimes you miss the college game day experience that doesn’t exist at Emory.”
- “If you have an interest in being social but not Greek life, it’s probably not the place for you.”
- “We don’t have a lot of school spirit. If you’re looking for school spirit and parties every weekend, you’re not going to get that here.”
- “If you want to live on-campus all 4 years, most Emory students usually move off campus their junior or senior year.” [On campus housing is not guaranteed for juniors and seniors.]
