Gables Emory Point only opened this year, but there’s already so much love for it that you would think it had been here since 1836. It is located on Clifton Road, across from the CDC and roughly a mile from the center of campus. Emory Point is close enough to provide quick access to the university, but far enough away to give residents their own space. It’s also situated right in the heart of merchandise heaven: the Emory Point retail center features multiple restaurants (there’s Italian, Indian, a deli, salads and sandwiches, a steak place … you get the idea), boutiques, a spa and, naturally, a CVS.

If you’re lucky (and financially secure) enough to snag a west-facing apartment, there’s a superb view of the Atlanta skyline to be had. Plus, all Emory Point apartments follow the Green Initiative guidelines – all windows, roofs, appliances and heating/cooling systems are energy-efficient. That way, you know your rent money’s paying for more than just a nice view.

The Emory Wheel was founded in 1919 and is currently the only independent, student-run newspaper of Emory University. The Wheel publishes weekly on Wednesdays during the academic year, except during University holidays and scheduled publication intermissions.

The Wheel is financially and editorially independent from the University. All of its content is generated by the Wheel’s more than 100 student staff members and contributing writers, and its printing costs are covered by profits from self-generated advertising sales.
