  • Living in the freshmen dorms at Emory can be a hit or miss, unless you know the tricks. Themed housingĂ‚? is the trick. The best available dorms are technically themed,…

    The DUC is actually great! The omelette station on Wednesday nights and weekends is the BEST and worth the long line. Be friendly to the workers and they will be friendly back. Go to Cox and the other little places on campus too once in a while.

    I was vegetarian at first.It was hard and I ended up failing. Now I'm a pescatarian. There still aren't that many options, but the food at Cox and DUC and the proximity to restaurants and stores make up for that.

    I personally love the Dobbs University Center (DUC) cafeteria. This is where all freshmen eat and they offer everything you can imagine - vegan/vegetarian options, traditional American cuisine, fresh omelettes every Wednesday and on the weekends, etc,! What's unique about Emory's dining program is that every student is awarded Dooley Dollars which is basically $150 to spend at various fast food places and restaurants around campus. That extra bit of money prevents me from getting sick of the cafeteria.

    I'm not sure, but I believe that there are plenty of places to pledge. I do know that they allow deffered admission so that you don't have to Rush in the fall. You join in spring sememster.

    There are more than 300 clubs, teams, and organizations for you to join at Emory. Greek life help you to find new ways to get involved on campus. Fraternities and Sororities add another dimension to college life. Emory has fourteen fraternities and twelve sororities that is open to every Emory student. Greek life has 38% participation of all extracurricular activities. I intend on joining my favorite fraternity. Greek Life will be diversified with many people that will share a bond of academics. I am not sure if there are a choice not to be involved with Greek Life.

    Honestly annoys the crap out of me. They are responsible for all the crazy parties and loud noise and overall obnoxious behavior on campus. Fortunately, it's mostly avoidable.

    Greek life is pretty big at Emory. Many good social interactions follow from being involved in Greek life. Many students are not involved, but not being Greek still might make you feel left out unless you are part of some club or other organization.
