Emory University was recently named to the 50 Most Amazing College Campuses list by The Best Colleges.

“When choosing a college, many students overlook one of the most important factors: quality of life,” writes The Best Colleges. “One of our goals is to emphasize to students the importance of the context and learning environment in which they choose to get educated.”

Emory was one of four colleges and universities in the top 10 located in the Southeast. Elon University, located in North Carolina, was No. 1 on the list. Emory  ranked ahead of schools such as Wake Forest, Northwestern, Rice, Duke, Washington University in St. Louis, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Cornell, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Notre Dame, Harvard and Dartmouth.

Goizueta Business School is a part of Emory University, occupying two buildings on the main campus.


“With an awe inspiring classically gorgeous southern campus, Emory is easily one of our top campuses in the country,” writes The Best Colleges. “This gem in the heart of Atlanta can offer students both an exceptional education as well as countless opportunities to expand their horizons.”

Emory’s campus covers more than 600 acres in the Atlanta suburb of Druid Hills. The campus features a balance of buildings and green space. Peavine Creek, a branch of the historic Peachtree Creek, winds through maples, oaks, magnolias, pines and dogwoods that grace the gently rolling hills.
