Religious Life at Emory

I was trying to figure out how to formulate this question. I come from a high school that has a very similar breakdown as Emory's population. Similar percentages of White Jewish kids to White Christian kids and similar amounts of Asians. My background is Lutheran but my dad grew up Jewish so even though he's taken the plunge (Baptized) half our family has a jewish background. At my high school jewish kids are very vocal to the point of almost bullying towards christian kids. I'm a reserved sort of kid but am very spiritual on the inside. I really love the programs and campus of Emory but just wanted to see if anyone who's a white christian kid (they are in the minority right?) could give me the vibe there. I've looked at the top Catholic schools but they don't feel diverse enough and aren't in a warmer climate.

    We have a Christian school of theology and a United Methodist Church on campus. There are many active Christian groups, but I've never gotten the sense anyone has been bullied. Many of the Jewish students on campus are what's been described as "Jew-ish", emphasizing that they don't really engaged in the religious parts of being Jewish.
