Emory is a highly-ranked research university in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The school was awarded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa for strengths in the liberal arts and sciences, and Emory is a member of the elite Association of American Universities for research strengths. Most of Emory's undergrads go to Emory College on the main campus, but about 700 students begin in a two-year liberal arts program at Oxford College in the small town of Oxford, Georgia. Emory's multi-billion-dollar endowment ranks with many Ivy League universities and helps support its strong schools of medicine, theology, law, nursing, and public health. The prestigious Goizueta Business School can boast of faculty members such as former President Jimmy Carter. On the athletic front, the Emory Eagles compete in the NCAA Division III University Athletic Association. Emory's general excellent earned it a place on my lists of top Georgia colleges, top southeastern colleges, best universities, and top business schools.
