If Emory University in Atlanta, GA, doesn’t appear particularly big at first glance, (it currently educates about 7,600 undergraduates and 6,600 graduate students) look a little deeper: it puts up some impressive numbers underneath the surface. At $6.7 billion, it has one of the largest endowments among private universities in the United States. It’s closely tied to Emory Healthcare, the largest healthcare system in the state of Georgia, and its Robert W. Woodruff Library, at 3.9 million print and electronic volumes strong, is one of the most comprehensive in the nation. But one can’t quantify everything that’s great about Emory: students across all of its nine colleges participate in dozens of organizations devoted to the arts, 18 varsity sports teams, and twice-weekly local newspaper “The Emory Wheel.” Graduate students have even shared their work with the public via online “dissertation samplers:” notable projects in 2015 alone include the development of imaging techniques to treat Pavlovian fear and a study upon compassion in the context of Tibetan Buddhism, among many more. Clearly, there’s a lot going on within this quiet campus; the Emory Eagles refuse to be ignored!
