International programs enrich the learning experience as students become engaged with other cultures, belief systems, languages and customs. Regardless of major, international experiences contribute to the success of students and add to what they bring to the academic program. Emory & Henry students have access to over 150 study abroad programs in more than 40 countries through partnerships with 10 different study abroad organizations. Qualified students spend a semester or summer abroad, or participate in Emory Abroad courses — short-term international programs led by Emory & Henry faculty.
In 2011, recent Emory & Henry graduate Jess Daddio traveled to the Amazon through NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) — a unique study abroad program that caters to the more adventuristic student. Below is a video documenting her time abroad in South America.
