I love the size of emory. i feel that for me it is the perfect environment. Students here work hard and play hard. We know when it is time to study and how to reward our studying with great social activities. I spend most of my time on campus outside, enjoying the atlanta weather with my friends. I think that although a lot of emory students have pride for our school, school spirit at athletic events must be enhanced. I think that the campus community on emory is very unusual. I think that there is a strong connection and great campus community that is hard to find at other universities. Frequent complaints that I hear from freshman is that the food is not great. There should be more meal options for freshman and upperclass students. The DUC is repetitive and unappetizing.
My favorite class at emory was my psych 110 class taught by Dr. Edwards. Although it was a large class filled with over 100 students, he knew each student by name. He always held office hours and was extremely approachable. In a class so large it was very comforting to know that my professor cared about my performance and even my personal life. I feel that although emory students love to have fun and enjoy the social scene, we all know that work comes first. I think that the english department at emory is exceptional. I am thinking of becoming an english major and the opportunity to have such a strong writing center and creative writing program is phenomenal. I think that the education at emory is geared toward learning for its own sake. I believe that the fact this school is a liberal arts college teaches students to learn a variety of different subjects. Rather than get a job most of emory undergraduates continue on to graduate school.
I think that emory is a very diverse learning environment. Socially and academically I think that emory accepts students of all racial, religious and socio-economic factions into its community. I do not think that students need to dress a certain way at emory. I do not feel judged by my peers based on what i am wearing. I think that there is a stereotype that most emory students are rich and i feel that this stereotype is extremely wrong. I believe that one cannot describe 4 tables of emory students in a dining hall because i think that emory is A LOT more diverse than just 4 "tables" (or kinds) of students. I would believe based on what i have heard and seen that most emory students are democrats.
