Emory University was founded in 1836 by the Methodist Episcopal Church. Rated as having “highly selective” admissions, Emory has been ranked #21 in National Universities by U.S. News & World Report. The private university is home to the Goizueta Business School and the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. Emory University also participates in an exchange program with the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Emory University is an overall great school with a variety of resources available to students-- numerous clubs covering an array of specific interests, free tutoring in any subject, a career center to help students build their resumes, free professional counseling (if necessary), mentoring offices for majors of study, and tons of activities for the students. With that being said, Emory is currently a top 20 school in the nation so some classes are pretty challenging which can get very stressful. Emory is also a pretty small school with a graduating class of a little over 1,000 so if that's your thing, then do it!

Emory University has a variety of resources available for students-- great interning opportunities as well as opportunities to work with amazing scientific researchers in a variety of fields. Starting out in my college career, I did question the administrative staff of Emory and if they had the students' best interests at heart but over time, Emory has grown more receptive to the needs of their students and challenges itself in racial, environmental, and gender-based issues. Overall, Emory has served me well in growing as a person and becoming more knowledgeable about the issues facing my generation.
