Campus life is about creating your own Emory & Henry experience and finding the right combination that works for you. It begins with student-run clubs and organizations, including celebrated musical groups, highly active media and deeply engaged service clubs. 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. You'll have the opportunity to truly experience college.
Currently, more than 70 student organizations are active on Emory & Henry's campus. On any given day, you're likely to find at least one club meeting or event taking place, if not more. Hikes on the Virginia Creeper Trail. A community service project in Emory or nearby Abingdon. A football game at the stadium (sure to draw big crowds). And if you can't find something you're looking for, you'll surely find other people who share your interests. Start a new tradition!
Emory & Henry offers comfortable, up-to-date on-campus housing options, including newly constructed or renovated residence halls.

The range of our meal plan options allows you to choose the dining program that best meets your needs.
