Emory University would not be the stellar institution of higher education if it was not situated in the vibrant city of Atlanta: the transportation, business, healthcare, and cultural hub of the Southeast. Sure, Atlanta has nice weather, beautiful neighborhoods, and southern hospitality. But it is also a progressive, global city with a ton to offer students - from internships to entertainment, to a myriad of places to explore on a free weekend.
To illustrate how Emory students explore and experience this great city, the Admission Student Video Team created the Experience ATL video series. Described by the team as "a chronicle of our adventures through Atlanta," the students decide to use the free and convenient Emory "Experience Shuttles" to discover interesting places around the city.
Over three seasons so far, the students have documented their visits to iconic Atlanta locations like Centennial Olympic Park, Piedmont Park, and the BeltLine. They have eaten great food at Krog Street Market and Inman Park, and even ventured outside the city to visit Stone Mountain. From the video team's perspective, "The best part of the experience was getting to hang out with each other and bond. There were so many funny moments, and it was great to be ourselves on camera. (The bloopers are hilarious, so make sure to check them out at the end of each video!)."
