So it's looking like Emory will be my home for the next 4 years. Currently, I live in Wisconsin and my friends are going UW-Madison. Though UW was an option, I've decided Emory's academics far outweigh the benefits of being relatively close to home and being among friends. Also, I'd like the experience of going it solo. However, I have to admit it's an intimidating prospect.
Can anyone share some experiences of moving to Emory from far away? If you can, include your experiences in getting new friends, adjusting to the area, the attitude, etc.
