There is no huge fence surrounding the campus but the buildings make it hard to see the outside streets. It doesn’t even feel like you’re in Atlanta when you are on campus. The buildings are Fairley close together and have a modern look. Emory is somewhat hard to navigate through because of the small roads and limited access. One huge obstacle is only people with a campus card can access the buildings so only students and faculty have access. The colors that come out the most at this location are green, white and brown. Green because of the park-like atmosphere it gave, the smell of the fresh grass and plenty trees. All most all the buildings are the same color, white and brown. White marble type of building with brown roof. Since Emory is known for being a great school I felt good walking around the campus. Emory University is my dream school so I was really happy being there. The environment is so clean and calm. The only down side is the ambulances and fire trucks running back and forth almost every 30 minutes due to hospitals surrounding the campus. I was at Emory University till 7:30pm, it got dark but I didn’t feel unsafe. Emory University is a high-ranked school that has the brightest students. There are many awards and recognitions around the campus for people to see the success of Emory University
