If it's a university that you want to visit, ok, why not? On the other hand it is just a university with university pubs and pizza parlors surrounding it. I guess if you can't find anything else to do for the day or evening; that'll work.

Our guide was adorable & knew her stuff (except museum hours). Campus & facilities were gorgeous & clean! School seems too good to be true, which is my only hesitation. Lacked some "real" element - eg where were the students on a sunny midday Saturday? Thought I'd see more out playing frisbee, etc. maybe they really are all as studious... More

The university now has a developing "scene" with the small historic Village with a growing assortment of eating and drinking establishments and a small park. Emory Point, on the other end of campus and across from CDC, has a larger assortment of shops and eating establishment with a little less charm of the village but bringing more events ( free... More

If they ever build senior housing on campus I'll be first in line! Emory sets the tone for wel-educated lifetime learners. The reviewers are right-- it's pretty random architecturally. But theCarlos Museum and varied lectures and plays are good enough and frequent enough to satisfy a range of interests.

No, folks, not something to look forward to but sometimes on a business trip, well, you get sick. Be assured that the Emory Midtown Hospital in downtown Atlanta is absolutely first-rate. Staff, facilities, and care are all that you can ask for. I attest to that from personal experience during an unplanned 2 day stay.

I study across town at GA State, I come to Emory for weekend study sessions because this place makes you fall in love with learning. The scenery, the facilities and the food options all come together well to create the perfect learning experience.

I would agree with a previous reviewer - Emory is a first rate university with a nice campus but not someplace I would consider a tourist spot.

Beautiful campus with lots of new construction going on. Walkable because it's relatively small with minor hills. Beautiful gym. A small town in located nearby with some quality chain eateries (Chipotle, Panera) and small shops.

Emory consistently ranks as one of the ten or fifteen universities in the nation; but it doesn't have a football team, so it's fame is limited. The Dalai Lama, composer Phillip Glass, and former President Jimmy Carter are recent guest faculty members. An excellent, and extensive, medical school; well established law school and business schools, as well. Emory was built... More

Really nice campus grounds. My friends and I just wanted to take a look around. We all agreed it was pretty!
