Mission Statement

    The Emory & Henry campus is unique, to be certain. With a mix of buildings built in the 1800's to the most recent addition built in 2010, a walk through Emory & Henry is a walk through the college's history. The housing options are varied, with most Freshman living in the First-Year Village (a grouping of buildings on the main campus close to all of the main academic buildings) and upperclassmen having choices of living in The Village (house-type dorms ranging in age) located across the ever present railroad tracks. The extra-curricular activities are always well advertised and to be honest, just a trip to the duck pond to view the beautiful Appalachian scenery should be enough to make you want to attend.

    The school is small but very friendly. For freshman, there are several days of orientation activities that make the transition into college much easier. The campus is beautiful, quiet, and seems very rural, but city activities are only about a half hour away. However, if you don't have a car the campus can be a little too small and unexciting after a while.

    I love the atmosphere! There's plenty to do on campus as well as things to do in the surrounding cities. Bristol has nice shopping. There is a club close bye that is pretty fun.
