Prospective students are invited to Emory & Henry as part of Virginia Private College Week from July 27-August 1, hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).
Emory & Henry will offer a campus tour and information sessions about admissions, financial aid and academic programs. College officials will also address some common myths about the cost of a private college education.
Students who visit at least three institutions during the week will receive three application fee waivers. Students may use these waivers to apply to any three participating CICV colleges for free.
Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process. I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach. Robert LambethPresident of CICV
Sessions at most colleges will begin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 1.

The Virginia Private Colleges website provides information concerning the quality and affordability of Virginia private colleges to students and parents by increasing awareness of its member institutions and addressing myths concerning private higher education and its costs. The website is a user-friendly, informative tool to help identify which Virginia private college is right for any qualified student.
