Reviews Dorm Life

  • 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,…

    With the recent transition in food providers to Bon Apetit (from Sodexo), it's going to prove a different experience. But it's likely to be better than before. The DUC offers a pretty good variety in selection so there's usually something you'll want. Cox hall has a few chain restaurants. Being on a diverse campus also means that you'll get a taste of something new, and there's always options for those with a restricted diet.

    Food is pretty good. The main cafeteria, the DUC, doesn't always offer the best food but has a solid spread. Cox, the other dining hall, offers a few choices but is over-priced. As a whole, there is a good range of healthy food options but they could do more to add variety in the main dining hall and add more dining options.

    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.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Fading in recent years, the Greek Life still has a small presence on campus. Recent suspensions have caused Eagle Row (the line of fraternity and sorority houses) to not see the activity it had seen before. They're an option for students really interested in Greek Life, but don't come here if that's what you're looking for.

    Blegh.... Don't like to deal with it much. Not a big deal I guess, but nearly 50/60% of students are in greek life. Doesn't matter either way if you are or not though.

    All the Greeks I know personally are really cool people, but I am not involved enough in Greek life to say anymore about it.

    About a third of the student body participate in Greek Life, and there are a wide variety of fraternities and sororities on campus.

    I was disappointing to discover Greek life has nothing to do with Greece.
