“Campus costruction over every square inch/CDC secured compound”
Reviewed September 3, 2014

Meander through the construction maze and enter the original Emory quad. Daydream about how pretty the Emory campus was before the building craze of the last generation. Go to the north side of campus to view the security-fenced Centers for Disease Control compound and reflect upon how life was pre-9/11.

“Outstanding top tier university/campus”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

As an Emory alumni and periodic visitor to the Goizueta Business School for various events, I am always impressed with the campus architecture and surroundings. Given the quality of the education that students receive here, it is nice to have facitlities that are comparable. They appear to have a substantial upgrade to the hospital/Emory Health Care facility under way, which should further enhance the hospital area. The biggest negative is the traffic and difficulty getting to the campus. I cannot necessarily blame Emory for that. The school was here long before the traffic! The neighborhoods near the university are some of Atlanta's finest. I will say some of the student apartments (I assume the students rent them) could stand to be torn down and upgraded given they look to be WWI era buildings. The Emory Village has received a nice upgrade recently as well.

“A Gem.”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Emory University is no doubt a beautiful campus and its surrounding area is being revived into such a lively & vibrant place; with trendy restaurant like the Ink & Elm to more casual ones nearby, this is growing into a place where you go the school or work there, you eat, shop and play there. Prospective Uni students, have to check this out!

“atlantastevefor40years”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

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.

“Professionally done info session & tour”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

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 & involved as our tour guide seemed to be. Only other negative is that they mention having TAs teach the bigger classes during freshman year. Also it would have been nice to go inside more buildings, such as a library, during the tour.
