To my knowledge, there has not been a lot of talk about the political atmosphere on campus. Can anyone share their thoughts? I heard and also read that overall, Emory leans to the left. To what extent is this true? If not, how would you desribe the political beliefs of most people? Are people simply indifferent?
On a personal note, my beliefs are, what many would call, very liberal (advocate of gay rights, gender and race equality, advocate of animal rights, mostly pro-choice, anti-death penalty, agnostic, pacifist etc...) and I also like to have friendly debates and do like to voice my opinion. I am unsure about whether people on campus will think I'm crazy or whether there are a fair bit of like-minded people. I researched this before applying but did not go too deep into it so I guess now is a good time to ask before I head off to campus. So I'd really appreciate it if some current students commented on the political atmosphere at Emory. Thanks.
