Emory University is a liberal arts institution located in Atlanta, Georgia, with a second campus in Oxford. The 600-acre campus in the Druid Hills neighborhood is home to four undergraduate and seven graduate colleges, as well as over a dozen research centers and facilities that provide more than half of Emory undergraduates with research opportunities. The Atlanta campus offers Bachelor’s of both arts and sciences, BSNs and BBAs, while the Oxford College campus offers associate’s of arts, altogether providing more than 70 majors and 50 minors. With a campus located only three miles from downtown Atlanta, students can utilize the 2,000 internship opportunities in the city or expand their horizons through the 135 study abroad programs outside of it. Emory University applies sustainability measures around campus as well as within the classroom, including sustainability courses in 61% of its departments.
Emory is surprisingly the perfect grounds for culturing new ideas. Even though it doesn't have a football team, Emory is still high in spirit and makes up for it in swimming and soccer. Above all, Emory is the perfect combination of nature-esque suburbia and busy city, since it is only ten minutes away from central Atlanta.

Emory Candler School of Theology is keen on fairness as they decline to hold personal interviews with prospective students because they want to ensure zero bias in the application process. As such, rather than visiting the school grounds, I rated Emory purely on credentials, helpfulness, and substance. Overall, the school is excellent, and the knowledgeable admissions team outshines any green lawn and sparkling sidewalk.
