I've had a great experience at Emporia. The Faculty and Staff are very pleasant and helpful when I need assistance. When I had to make an adjustment to my classes and financial aid they were on top of everything and got things in order quickly

The Emporia campus is beautiful, everyone is friendly and approachable, and the teachers truly care about each student's education. Unlike bigger state schools, students are not just a number in a classroom.
