Experience Atlanta

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 ton to offer students - from internships to entertainment to a myriad of places to explore on a free weekend.

Explore how Emory students experience this great city. Our Admission Student Video Team has launched Experience ATL, described by them as:

A chronicle of our adventures through Atlanta! We (Lindsay, Paola, and Julian) have had an amazing time exploring various Atlanta destinations. We used the free and convenient Emory "Experience Shuttles" that take students to interesting places around the city. In Season One, which we filmed in Fall 2015, we visited Piedmont Park, Stone Mountain, and Centennial Olympic Park's Winter Festival.

It was so fun to be a tourist in our own city, and it definitely helped us branch out into the Atlanta community. Our favorite destination was Centennial Olympic Park, because the views from the Ferris Wheel were absolutely breathtaking. 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!)

For the spring 2016 semester, we've been back on the shuttles at great new destinations like Krog Street Market, Inman Park, and the BeltLine.
