Visiting Atlanta, Georgia


Emory University is a nationally recognized research university with a deep history of extraordinary academic achievement. Atlanta, Emory's home, is the American Southeast's largest city, brimming with energy and diversity. It played an important part in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. The Atlanta History Center chronicles the city's past, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Olympics, encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
