3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no need for public transportation to get to campus. Emory & Henry College is small enough for a person to walk to classes in a maximum of 10 minutes from their dorm. If a person wants to go off campus, however, then s/he will need a car or know someone with a car.

Weather: During the fall semester, school does not close or have any delays usually. It is rainy at times, so definitely bring rain boots. During the spring semester, there is usually snow which brings school closing or delays. This region has all seasonal weather elements - sun, rain, and snow.

Scholarships: Freshman year is probably the easiest for getting financial aid. After that, it could possibly be a hassle depending on the person and their situation.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Emory & Henry is a dry campus, meaning alcohol is not allowed on campus. However, people still tend to drink on campus and are not caught doing so (unless you decide to be stupid with it). There are parties off campus that people can decide to go to if they choose to, but peer pressure to do so is not a problem. People use marijuana on campus, but the policy enforcement on it is more strict than alcohol. People are more prone to be expelled for marijuana than they will be for an alcohol violation. Overall, some people drink but will not peer pressure you to do the same.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm probably a little biased on my rating, since I am a part of Greek life, but it is a great opportunity to join a group of people that most relates to you. The Greek system is not national, only social, which means that the cost to join is low compared to national fraternities/sororities and the process to join is shorter. There is no pressure to join if you do not want to join. Also, there are no housing for the Greeks since it is social and not national.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good. Like other colleges, it does depend on where you live. A new dorm was built during the 2012-13 school year, called Hickory, and is very eco-friendly. Upperclassmen are usually going to be in the dorms Hickory or Elm (which is right next to it) since these are the newest and nicest dorms. There are many other dorms to choose from, and they are all really close to classes since EHC is a smaller campus than others. Emory & Henry is a private college, which means that it is not cheap to come here, but the quality of education is worth it. The housing process is done by your college credit ranking (sophomore, junior, senior, 5th year) and a person is given a random number in their ranking category. You must have a roommate picked out before the room draw day or else you'll be put to the bottom no matter your number.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are many different people from all walks of life on campus. Some come from very poor backgrounds while others come from very rich backgrounds but there is not way to truly tell where someone comes from because the campus is quite accepting.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Emory is a open-community campus so there are members of the community on campus quite often. It takes a while to get used to them but eventually you learn that they are actually quite nice.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are very few guys on campus whom I would consider attractive. The rest are average or below average.
