Really just went to the Barns & Noble bookstore. It was too small to really carry any interesting titles - but I was able to find a few books to read. I wouldn't make a trip out there just for the bookstore again.

The area surrounding Emory University has nice art galleries and the campus is a nice, shady area in Atlanta to explore. There are often exhibits at the library and Emerson Concert Hall, Schwartz Center for Performing Arts and the Michael C. Carlos Museum always have interesting international cultural events planned!

We stopped here for a college tour for my 16 year old. The day we went it was pouring down rain - which made for a miserable tour but I can't blame the school for that. However, we were split into groups of 10-12 with a student guide. There must have been about 10 groups our morning. We all started... More

A wonderful place to go to college. A beautiful campus in a great neighborhood. Friendly atmosphere from students, faculty and staff. Safe. And most importantly, an unbelievable education for your children. Comes at a hefty price though! Check it out.

Nice campus. Expensive. Seems like the students get mostly what they pay for. Arts not as strong or as invested in from what I could see. Probably would not attend or send my kids there. But not because it's not great; but only that there are a zillion other schools.

This is a pretty campus. My daughter went to a summer debate program. There is a great home made ice cream store next door. The university is highly ranked.

Having visitied 4 years earlier as a potential school for our first child, the school has only grown and become a stronger option. The investment in facilities is palatable. We liked what we saw and heard and felt a welcoming attitude for the dedicated student. The visit highlighted one material uncertainty. The university is contemplating a reconstruction of the student... More

Even if you and not in the field of higher learning. This is a wonderful adventure and the entire family will appreciate this journey. I say journey because there is so much to see. Plan ahead and list the colleges within the university that you would like to visit. Everyone should be able to afford to attend Emory.

Visited the Carlos museum and the Schwartz center. Both well worth the trouble to park and walk a bit. Beautiful campus and a great visit with folks at the Candler School of Theology
