  • 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,…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Emory has a lot of dining options. The DUC is the main cafeteria and they have multiple stations including southern, vegetarian, and a sandwich/salad station. You use meal swipes at the DUC, the amount you get depends on your dining plan, but for freshman, it's unlimited. There is also Cox Hall where you can find restaurants like Twisted Taco or Freshens. In front of campus is Emory Village where there are even more restaurants plus a froyo place which has become the hangout spot for my friends and me. You used Dooley/Eagle dollars for on campus food that isn't the DUC, the amount also depends on your meal plan. Also, Emory busses are constantly running to other areas where there is even more food and restaurants, but don't worry, there's a Starbucks on campus. Finally, there are plenty of late-night options for those midnight cram sessions.

    Because Emory is about celebrating different cultures, there's always new food to try and I really enjoy that.

    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.
