I was offered a teaching position at Emory late last year. I was not given much notice, but I did not really need one anyway. I had just finished a year of teaching abroad and had not settled into a normal routine yet, so this was actually perfect timing for me. I went online and did a search for apartments for rent near Emory University. Though I have often dreamed of living in a nice house, I knew that it would be best to find an apartment since I was not sure if I would have this job for more than two semesters.
