What Students Are Saying

3.29 Average Rating
Apply - I applied to this school as an afterthought, and when I got accepted it piqued my interest. The rest, they say, is history.

Get Involved - This school is a very tight-knit community willing to care for one another. The more you're involved, the more likely you'll be offered opportunities that you couldn't get anywhere else.

Attend Classes - The school is very strict on class attendance, and with the money you're paying to go there I would be too. Professors have individual attendance policies for their classes, and it pays to show up to class, lest you come one day to find your name removed from the class roll.

Be Open - Coming here I had no idea what to expect. This school is seeped in tradition and if you choose to open yourself up to the experience, your time here will be some of the best years of your life. I know I enjoy it here, and if you choose to attend as well, I know you will too.

Emory & Henry is famously know as being one of the colleges that changes lives. It's changed professors lives. It's changed lives of members of the community we service. It's changed my life, and countless others before me. Let it change yours.

Do absolutely everything you can to get scholarships. Loans seem like the easy solution to how you will pay for college, but once you are actually in school and the loans start adding up, you will wish you had more financial aid. Even though it is time-consuming, the best piece of advice is absolutely to apply for every scholarship that you can and CONTINUE to apply for them even when you are already accepted, enrolled, and/or attending college.

Take a student tour on campus! Many current students lead tours around campus. You'll find that they can offer great insight into the questions you're dying to know the answers to. If you have the chance, stay with a current student. The college is eager to set prospective students up with current Wasps! Try to sit in on a class during your visit; professors will be excited to see you're interested in what they are teaching.

Prospective students should come and visit campus before hand. Email admissions about staying a weekend. They should be able to hook you up with a place to stay. When visiting sit in on some classes you are interested in. You will find that the small class sizes give an opportunity to participate and hold educated conversation easier. You will also get to experience the fun of college life!
