  1. 0
    I will be starting the nursing program at Emory this fall (2014) and now I am looking for affordable areas to live. I'm not looking for an apartment but a house that is not crazy far since from my understanding ATL traffic is horrific...help!

    North Druid Hills, Virginia Highlands, and Little Five Points are all in close proximity to Emory.

    North Druid Hills is really nice, my brother lives there and attends Emory for his graduate degree. He said traffic is not bad & it is a safe neighborhood. Not to mention I loved the area when I visited.

    I will definitely check into those areas. I was initially looking close to the school which was pretty expensive. I have a middle schooler so hopefully I find an area that is relatively close enough to Emory where it wont take an hour to get home and within a good school district. Thanks for your help! If you have any more suggestions keep em coming

    City of Decatur has some of the best schools in the state. Not unincorporated Dekalb that gets called Decatur.

    Yikes. Decatur schools aren't the best in the state though. Gwinnett and Cobb county have them beat

    City of Decatur schools. Not Just 'Decatur'. About a 5 sq mile area. Great schools. Inside the perimeter. High socio economic area and people don't send the kids to private. High tax rate. . Very close to Emory. Lots of Emory folks here. About a 10 min car ride to Emory and on the cliff shuttle.
