I believe that the best thing about Emory is the professors. Aside from being very smart and intelligent, they are very friendly. They are always available for office hours and/or by appointment if you are having difficulties in class. Also, Health Services is very good at this school. The doctors are always availableand if you really sick, they always accept walk-ins. I think my school size is just right. I know most of the people here, and most of them know me. What is so amazing about everything is despite its small size, you still meet people every time you go out and such. When I tell people about Emory, I always get a positive reaction from them. Emory has a great reputation, and I feel really proud telling people I go here. Most of my time on campus I spend it in the library. Obviously i go there to study, but sometimes, especially during finals, you ran into everybody at the school. Most people say the library is like another Maggies, our famous bar. The only thing that I would change about Emory is its pride. People don't usually attend school events or sports games, so school pride is not a big thing here. I think its because we don't have a football team.
As I mentioned before, I love the professors at this school. Most of them try really hard to know their students name, which makes us feel special. My favorite class without a doubt is Portuguese 412. I am a Portuguese minor, and I really like my professor. She is originally from Brazil, and she loves to teach others about her country. I think my least favorite class is PE. I workout a lot outside of class, so sometimes it can be really boring going back to the gym twice a day. Students study a lot at this school Most of them are really committed and can spend hours at end trying to get their work done. All nighters are really common amongst students. The most unique class I have taken has to be theater. I really loved the interactivity in the class. I learned so much about myself, and expressing myself in front of others. I am a Journalism major. At first I thought it was going to be an easy, but I was mistaken. Its a lot of writing, and sometimes its a little too much. But Emory has a great Writing Center that helps me with my grammar and organization which has been a big help for me. Education ar Emory is geared toward getting a job. Most of the professors prepare us for our future careers, especially in my field. My professor right now is teaching us about vocalization in case we want to go into broadcast.
One thing that I have noticed about Emory is its lack of diversity. Yes, Emory has students from around the world, but in very, very small percentages. People here are mostly from the same background, and international students may feel out of place. I was born in Colombia, and later moved to the States. i felt a big cultural shock when I came here because the people were so different from me.I would enjoy my time here more if Emory had more people from Latin America and other parts of the world. Most students wear to class comfortable clothes. Sweats, big T-shirts, and baggy sweaters. Fashion isn't really big here.
The Best Things
The people, without a doubt.
The Worst Things
Its lack of school pride.
