5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone ids so welcoming and the campus is gorgeous. The new theatre will be done soon. So ill have a brand new stage to work on I'm so excited.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Emory & Henry couldn't have been a better college for me. It provided a caring community, quality instruction, thoughtful experiences, and life long friendships. The awards and reputation that Emory & Henry has earned does not begin to represent the positive impact that it has on its graduates.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most apartments are in Abingdon. Some students live in the Kelker apartments, which are the closest to campus. Most people have to go to Abingdon to find off campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining includes going to Abingdon most of the time. They have anything from fast food, Chinese, Italian and a few more expensive/nice restaurants. Or you can go a little further to Bristol to where Chickfila, Olive Garden, and Cook Out are.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are mostly in a safe distance off campus. Mainly to avoid drinking tickets and security.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Emory & Henry is a dry campus, so alcohol violations are taken seriously. It's impossible to expect all students not to drink on campus, but when students begin to disrespect othe students rights (like quiet hours-noise violations) security is notified.

Tickets are written for drinking and if one is caught more than once, a letter is sent home.

Parking is limited sometimes so tickets are frequently given. It's never a long walk from your residence hall, so some advice would be to just park where you're supposed to. It's not worth the ticket.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Admissions and CSA have always been helpful to me. The staff/administration genuinely want you at Emory if that's what you want. I would encourage students that want to come to Emory, but are scared because of financial reasons, to try anyway. They can find a way.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Cafeteria options are limited and cooking skills are often weak.

There is the Wow Cafe (the hut) as an alternative, but I would like to see more healthy eating options on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Besides minor problems that happen everywhere, most of the dorms are in good condition. Even the dorms that aren't first picks for students are cleaned everyday by the staff.

More dorms are being built hopefully to higher the campus living standards even more.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: i think facilities at the school are wonderful, I hope I have a chance to further my graduate study in your university.

Local Area: Although the town is not immediate, there is a small town about 10 minutes away. It has thrift stores, theaters, food stores, restaurants, and all that is needed. I don't know about any places to party, because I don't really do that kind of thing, but I find there is plenty to do.

Health & Safety: I find the campus extraordinarily safe. I don't feel as safe back in my neighborhood at home. There are very times I have felt paranoid, let alone threatened. Walking across the small campus alone at any time is relatively comfortable and there are plenty of people to talk to or to go to for aid if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: take money from football and arts, for other areas

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For a small school, our dining options are below average. There are only 3 options on campus and one is only open at lunch

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Emory and Henry does not have problems with sexual assault. Word gets around quickly in our campus, but since I have been there, no such incidents have occurred

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As a small school, our greek life over achieves. The m=small school size does allow for tight-knit groups

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Other than one apartment complex, which rarely has a vacancy, there are no affordable options for off campus housing in the area

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I find that our campus, as a liberal arts school, is focused on the liberal arts. Our athletic programs can sometimes lack in flare, while our arts centers flourish

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Our campus is very ethnically and socially diverse in the classroom and on the athletic fields, which we believe is rare for such a small school

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a smaller school, competing with larger schools is difficult, but they are still important to the integrity of the school.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Our school pushes students to excel in all areas

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Both the education and history department are stellar

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Student instructor for a freshmen level geography course

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Hand selected for the position by the professor.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: At the beginning it was the worst, at the cafe. The selection was horriable, the quality was horrible, including taste. It made me sick as so as I ate it. Straight to the bathroom as soon as it hit my stomach. It had improved near the end of the year. They had someone to come in and change things. They do have a Macado's on campus that you can use your flex dollars, which is part of the meal plan you purchase and you can use your flex dollars and/or cash plus card at the 2 deli's they have. Macado's and The Hut were the 2 places that were the best.
