Emory University is located in Atlanta, Georgia, the largest city in the south of the United States. Coca-Cola, an international business behemoth, has invested a large amount of capital to establish Emory’s status as a world-class academic hall. The campus is covered with forest, and the buildings are all in the classical Italian style. Emory University is a typical research-oriented comprehensive university, but it combines the advantages of comprehensive university and college of arts and sciences; it pays attention to under graduate teaching, and sufficient research funds enable freshmen to start doing research intern ships. The school is not in downtown area, thus being safer and creating a quiet learning environment. Students can easily and quickly reach the city. Atlanta is also a very fun city where students can experience the wonderful extracurricular life and feel the vitality of the city, including sports events, museums, city events, music festivals, political events, various commemorative activities. Strong transportation networks make these explorations accessible. Emory’s students and faculty have created an enthusiastic and enterprising community with rich traditions.
