"I chose Emory because of its academic rigor, its strong biology program and the opportunities to gain experience in the health science field.  In addition, I chose Emory for its strong volleyball program, especially the remarkable coaching staff and players. The diverse student population, campus and location make Emory an ideal fit for me.  The fact that it is only 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta, where I can enjoy the city scene, the music and professional sports is amazing."
