I did an overnight at Emory a couple days ago, and I really liked it. However, when I had just arrived, I had a feeling of shock that omigosh, this is where i'll be next year, sooo far away from home, and soooo different from home. Can anyone from Emory who lives farther than driving distance from the school tell me about their experience in the first few months? thanks

Whitney, don't worry, you're going to have a fabulous time at Emory.My son is finishing his freshman year and he has had a wonderful and amazing time, as you will too. We are from the midwest and he knew no one on campus--but that is true for almost everyone at any school with a national draw. Everyone will be looking for new friends and new experiences. If you have anything specific that you want to know about, I'll be glad to pass it on to him. Just look forward to having a great experience, both academically and socially.

hey whitney i'm going to emory next year too! i'm from pittsburgh so it will be a change for me, too. at the same time, i'm not too worried about about it being different from home. almost a quarter of the students are from the mid atlantic states and about 10% are from new england...those numbers are pretty big. also, i from my visit i realized that atlanta wasnt as southern as i thought. its extremely cosmopolitan and i could hardly tell i was in the south, like with any other big city. in that respect we shouldnt feel too out of place!

I'm from California, so I have you all beat. It's really not bad. In fact it's kind of nice not being w/in driving distance because you gain more independence.

I know I can't speak accurately for him, and he did not go undergrad, but my dad went to Emory (from Maine). He liked it there.
