  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
emory is very challenging for students of all majors, especially for pre-med and pre-business students. it has a beautiful campus and there are several research opportunities and opportunities to connect with faculty. however, while the campus is diverse, the various racial groups on campus are very segregated and there is not much mingling between greeks and non-greeks.

Placed neatly just outside of Midtown Atlanta, Emory is home to some of the brightest minds in the US. It has a large, beautiful campus with modern facilities conducive to getting the best out of the liberal education. Emory is the perfect place for students who appreciate learning and don't mind a challenge.
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.
Monique from Columbus, GA
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!
