Eastern Mennonite University is a Christian-based liberal arts college in the Shenandoah Valley. All students are required to spend part of their academic career studying in another culture as a guest of a local host family or traveling abroad. Although EMU is affiliated with the Mennonite Church, over half of the student body is made up of other denominations. Peacemaking is one of EMU’s core values and the University’s Center for Justice and Peacemaking hosts a Summer Peacebuilding Institute that has been attended by participants from over 120 countries since its inception.
A small, private university with a 13:1 student-to-teacher ratio. The university is located in a beautiful, tranquil setting in the Shenandoah Mountains. Students receive lots of individual attention from instructors.

there are great people here- even though it is a wee bit of a hippie school. the teachers are always more than willing to help you- not to mention your classmates. all-in-all a great school to go to- religious affiliation non-material.
