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.

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.

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.

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.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's just like any other college but most students know to leave campus instead of taking the risk on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Emory is very particular about certain things such as drugs and alcohol but they are not as strict about other things

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: it isnt too bad if you know what you are doing......

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: would like a little more variety for people that dont like fast food

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At Emory, the Greeks are all viewed as normal people. Since Emory is such a small college, our fraternities and sororities aren't known nationally. They affect the social atmosphere just like a normal student would. The Greeks live in normal housing like normal students, or they rent their own apartments.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The Off-Campus dining is average. We have to drive 9 exits away to Abingdon to get to a few fast food places and a few sit-down restaurants. If you really want a good meal, you have to drive all the way to Bristol, which is 19 exits away. None of these places have student discounts, unfortunately. But as far as variety goes, Bristol has a lot of places to dine at.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking availability and convenience is somewhat limited.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my program and my professors! Most of my professors help to make the program interesting and challenging!

5 College Freshman

Majors: Love studying International Business. I plan to graduate and continue my study abroad.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Privacy means a lot! Noise level on campus makes it hard to study at times.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are invested in their students and know what they're talking about. With a degree from Emory, you can be sure you will become very successful.

Nightlife: There are a lot of parties off campus, but no bars.

3 College Freshman

Majors: At times the mathematics department's requirements seem a bit daunting, but I see the worth of it. Great for preparing students, despite being very difficult.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe. Most students are respectful, and don't do stupid things. When they are stupid they don't affect others

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was easy for me to obtain my scholarship as an incoming freshman. However, I haven't been impressed with how the aid is distributed after my first year in terms of additional scholarships.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security tends to look the other way when students drink. It makes me a little uneasy.
