I really enjoy the small class size for all of my classes. My professors, especially within my department of study (history), are very passionate about their study and topics. They enjoy giving all possible answers to problems within history, and they provide guidance for a student to determine their own thoughts and beliefs on a topic. The professors are successful at prompting conversation among students about their topics, both in and out of class. My professors are caring and life-changing, and I couldn't imagine gaining my education from anyone else.

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.

Just average college students. Some look better than others as in the world. So are nicer, funnier, and friendlier, same as the world outside the college. They dress as college girls do, so more conservative than others, but overall normal. But, the majority have a great social life and relationships with both guy and girl friends. Some have a great social life and relationships, and then there are some that don't want one, they prefer to be a loner and read and study. But for the majority, both girls and guys mingle and have great friendships and individual relationships.
