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 wonderfully challenging in so many ways. The academics and professors are superb, and the diverse student body is full of passionate people. Atlanta itself is the ideal location because it is full of opportunity.
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!
