Questions about Emory

<p>I recently visited Emory and I really loved it but I heard that the percentage of students living on campus was in the 60's. Is Emory a "commuter" school or is it still very active on campus? Thanks</p>

<p>No--it's just that a good number of the juniors and seniors move out of the dormitories "off campus" to apartments in the neighborhood.</p>

<p>freshmen and sophomores are required to live in the dorms and it seems like alot of the juniors and seniors live in the clairmont campus. i'm surprised it's 60%.</p>

<p>83% of the student body calls somewhere outside of Georgia home. All first and second year students at Emory are required to live in university housing. The exceptions are those students from Atlanta opting to live at home (which rarely happens) and other unusual circumstances like medical needs (which rarely happens). According to the college board, 97% of first year students live in university housing and, overall, 70% of the student body lives in university housing. See: <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>George Mason is typically known for being a commuter school. Statistically, 63% of freshman live in university housing and 28% of the students do overall. 83% of the students call somewhere in state home.</p>

<p>With these statistics in mind, I would say that Emory is not a commuter school.</p>
