The main entrance of Emory University reflects a lot of the University. “Emory University is one of the worlds leading research universities and recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the Southeast’s leading health care systems”. As I entered the University main entrance i felt proud, it gave off a good vibe. The entrance is beautiful and prepares you for whats on the inside.
Built Environment Descriptions
Emory University has a beautiful outdoor campus. As i took notes for my project i realized how clean and calm the campus environment was. The grass was green and smelled fresh. The sounds i heard mostly included chatter, laughter and birds chipping. I also saw a lot of squirrels running up and down trees, scattering around in the leaves. Emory gives a very peaceful setting. No wonder it is ranked one of the best college campuses in Georgia.
Chandler School of Theology & Cannon Chapel
Above is an image i took at Emory University. The building on the left is Candler School of Theology and connected to it is the Cannon Chapel. The Cannon Chapel is a worship place that is well kept and is key for students at Candler School of theology. All types of religions are practiced in this chapel. in 2013 it was given a makeover, first one after thirty years.
Chirping birds: Emory University Recording
Above is a recording that i took while sitting on a bench at Emory University near the Robert W Woodruff Library. The recording was taken on February 11th approximately at 6:00pm. The sounds in the recording included birds chirping and chatter in the distance. The campus is an outdoor campus that is beautiful, very clean and calm. However, Emory University is surrounded by hospitals. What i wasn’t able to get on the recording was the sounds of firetrucks and ambulances passing by every hour.
