We are a transformative academic community. Our education is distinguished by progress – sometimes sudden, sometimes gradual – toward an expanded sense of personal potential and an enlightened sense of civic responsibility. This progress, this transformation, is the foundation of our culture and is built upon high-quality teaching and a community-wide commitment to serve. The impact of this academic approach is lasting and profound.
Founded in 1836, Emory & Henry College is the oldest institute of higher learning in southwest Virginia. From its beginning, the College has been where intellectual curiosity and spiritual growth intersect, a unique position between reverence for the past and forward-thinking ideas. A place committed to itself and its neighbors.
Life here is about creating your own experience. There's no disappearing on our campus. You'll be involved, front and center -- in your classes, in your activities, even in your residence hall. You will become very close to your peers, your professors and E&H staff members. You will find people who are highly concerned about you and your success. It begins with student-run clubs and organizations, including celebrated musical groups, highly active media and deeply engaged service clubs.
