“Nice univerisity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We really enjoyed visiting the university. Of course, we were in Atlanta to visit here in the first place so we are a bit biased. Had we simply been visiting Atlanta as tourists, it may be worth a quick stop.

“Beautiful campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Beautiful campus that kind of reminds of Stanford University (architecturally). Great university and medical hospital, along with the home of the Michael C. Carlos museum. What more is there to say?

“Not sure why a traveler would go here...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Not sure why a traveler would go here... It is a world class University, especially for the medical fields. But what a tourist would want to go here for is beyond me.

“Emory, the Harvard of the South”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Atlanta likes to call Emory University the Harvard of the South. The university is also called "Coca Cola" University because the Woodruffs of Coca Cola have endowed the university with vast amounts of money.

Emory is ranked very high nationally. It has excellent medical and law schools. Our son went through Emory as a pre-med student and then graduated from Emory Medical School. Emory also has a wonderful teaching hospital.

The university is located in Decatur, Ga,, close to downtown Atlanta. The campus is both sprawling and beautiful.

We are very lucky to have a university of this caliber in our backyard!!!!
