We are excited to report to you that construction will begin this fall on a large-scale student housing project that will continue our successful efforts to make Emory & Henry one of the top colleges to both live and learn.Jake B. Schrum, President of Emory & Henry College
In addition, a community building will be built to provide students with additional space for activities, exercise and study.
These attractive, comfortable living spaces extend our commitment to a campus learning environment that enhances creative, focused learning that leads to high levels of success.
As we celebrate this important milestone in the improvement of our living environment, we are also excited to report progress in other efforts to improve the student experience at Emory & Henry:
A new Inclusion & Dialogue Center will be located, beginning this fall, in the newly renovated Scarborough House, which is located behind Matthews Hall. Josh von Castle will be relocated to the center this fall to provide support and assist with programming. The I.D. Center will seek "to create, engage, encourage, and empower a community inclusive of all." To help pursue this vision and to design the new space, Josh has formed an advisory committee of representatives from the faculty, staff and student body.
This has been a season of great progress toward important goals in support of E&H students. We’re working hard to create a campus environment that enhances your learning experience at Emory & Henry, one distinguished by high-quality teaching, hands-on approaches to learning and improving the world, and a comfortable environment that allows you to focus on your future.
