Our graduates go on to do meaningful, essential work in communities around the world. Thanks in part to our rigorous pre-professional programs, nearly a third enter graduate or professional school, often at the nation’s top universities. A growing number are starting their own businesses or teaming up to form new ventures. And a significant percentage of our alumni find leadership positions with nonprofits and service agencies. The College has a proud history of graduates conducting scientific research at the highest levels, with corporations, research centers and medical centers; and we’re establishing a new tradition of exceptional achievement in the arts and media.
The professional staff in our office of Career Services offers one-on-one counseling, workshops addressing every step of a student’s post-graduation plans, career fairs and on-campus recruiting, and a wide range of print and electronic resources.
Throughout its long history, Emory & Henry has been represented by graduates who have gone on to make a significant mark in their careers and their communities. These alumni include former Virginia governors, members of Congress, corporate leaders, scientific researchers, and distinguished educators.
