The best thing about Emory is the plethora of activities and opportunities available for people to do; the problem is that most people don't take advantage of most of them. If I had to change something, I would do something to push people out of their comfort zones and get to know people they normally would not/do not talk to because I think that hearing different perspectives on anything really helps a person grow. I feel that Emory is just right. It is the perfect combination because I always have a class where I know at least two people, and there are always people who I do not know. When I tell people to go to Emory, they say, "Where's that?" I hate that Emory has everything (undergrad, med school, public health school, law school, and B school) that's ranked in the top 25, yet no one knows about Emory! It really bothers me that when I go home, people think highly of the Vanderbilt students when I know Emory is ranked higher but no one knows that, and I'm not the type to boast about it. Most of my time on campus would be in my dorm or at the Woodpec. What college town? Nothing is close by and everything is way too overpriced because everyone thinks Emory is full of rich people. Emory's administration is actually pretty well run and also very understanding and helpful in all types of situations. I have had plenty of instances in which I have had to talk to a lot of different people to get something straightened out. They've always been very helpful and understanding in all my situations. Last I can remember is David Horowitz coming to speak... I think it's split in the middle. Half are very Emory Pride while the other half are just disheartened because no one else knows about Emory, and we aren't really known for any sports (other than D3 Tennis). The squirrels are crazy and not afraid of people and do the goofiest things. Positive- Wonderful Wednesdays; Negative- being sexually assaulted People not mixing with each other.
Yup Biomedical ethics- it was instant gratification. I learned so much, and Dr. Fotion is amazing. Least fav- intro bio or intro calc...I think it was the professors teaching a level I wasn't used to.. Depends from student to student Definitely, but it's usually the same students who participate. All the time. VERYYYYYYYYYYYY Biomedical ethics I was NBB, but after taking biomedical ethics, I decided to be a Phil major. I love it, and the professors. It's just so interesting and can be applied to everything everyday. Yes, as much as possible. Emory's academic requirements are good, but some professors are not that helpful to students who come from schools that do not prepare their students adequately. I think all the GERs are necessary. Getting a job--at least in the pre-med classes. The majority of them are grade based and are sometimes so challenging that learning the information does not seem to matter.
All of them are great! Someone who is really introverted. There are a lot of opportunities and people to meet, but if you do not put yourself out there, at least at first, you're not going to meet anyone or get anywhere. Most people generally dress very nicely, especially the girls. Although they're just wearing jeans, they will wear a cute shirt and most always have cute shoes/heels/flats. Guys usually are very well kempt, too. The "minorities" usually mingle with each other and themselves. 4 tables: 1 table has white people who just got back the woodpec. Another is the "black hole". Another is people who are in between classes. One has all Asians. The last one has 1 Indian, 1 Asian, and 2 black people. 45% from the south, 45% from the north, 8% from california, 2% international. Good mix of upper middle class and lower middle class mostly. Not most Whatever their parents tell them. Most that are politically aware or active at Emory tend to be right winged. Yes, but not much.
