    Campus Safety

    I feel very safe walking on campus at night. There are police boxes and lights everywhere, and the campus is small enough that if you ran into any trouble, you would be able to immediately get somewhere safe.

    Bang for the buck

    You get to go to Emory after sophomore year, so the rating could change, but at Oxford isn't entirely worth the money.

    What to do for fun

    Join clubs that interest you and attend events on campus. There isn't much else unless you take the shuttle to Emory's main campus.

    Food and Dining

    Again, mediocre. Since the campus is isolated, you're limited to delivery and the dining hall unless you want to hoard your own food, pay for an Uber, or walk to Covington Square. The dining hall serves edible food, but it's sometimes hard to eat. The Ox Grill is our late-night option. They have pretty good chicken tenders there, and it's nice to go there for a quick break.

    Dorm Life

    Mediocre at best, I would say. It really depends on the dorm you're in. I'm in Elizer Hall, and it's clean and maintained. Sometimes there are hall events, but I don't see much of my neighbors otherwise. Some people can be really rude, also, and tear down the decorations on your door. Dorm life is what you make it, though.

    Academic Rigor

    I had to work for my grades even though they were only entry-level classes, and my roommate even more so. While some classes are certainly easier than others, it's telling that there are so many jokes about failing on the Facebook meme page.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to work hard if you want to keep your GPA up- the classes here are no joke. If money is a problem, make sure you're constantly looking for scholarships and communicating with the financial aid office. Be open to new experiences and go to events. But if you're an extremely social butterfly, you'll probably be better off at main campus.

    In three sentences

    The Oxford campus of Emory University is definitely small, but also very beautiful. I find that most people here, students and professors alike, are friendly and willing to help. The academics are rigorous, but as long as you stay on top of classwork, homework, and studying, you should be fine.
