Howdy! No chancing here - i'm already accepted as a transfer, and seriously deciding whether I should go to Emory or Tulane (or even go elsewhere)
I was wanting to get a feel for campus life at Emory, mostly basic stuff...I visited during the summer, but it is hard to get a feel for things when no one is around.
Is there a lot to do on campus on a given day such as speakers, music/performing arts, movies, other stuff?
Also, do students typically hang out outside during their down time, doing stuff like playing frisbee, hanging out with friends, someone occasionally playing an instrument, etc? Or do students basically make a beeline from class to their dorms or the library?
Basic question: is there an area in the university center with comfy couches that are conducive to reading, doing work on a laptop, and meeting a small group - somewhere with an atmosphere similar to a Starbucks? I know (and really like) that Tulane's univ. center has a place on the 2nd floor just like that.
