Finding a Home at Oxford

“There's no hiding that college can be difficult. No matter what school you attend, there will be times when you're so stressed or busy that not even fuzzy socks can make it better. What I've found, though, is that I don't need the socks; I have the Oxford community.”

“Atlanta attracts people from all over the country and the world, and the city's diversity is reflected in Emory's student body. My friends at Emory come from many different backgrounds, and going to school with so many different types of people has greatly enriched my college experience.”
