Open House Fun in Photos

Posted by Rachael Wilbur
We were pleased to welcome so many future Wasps to our Emory and Henry campus for our first fall Open House.

Guests spent time with our faculty and staff, heard from our president, deans of academics and student affairs, heard from faculty and a panel of our students. Lunch and tours of campus took place as well as fun with Stinger our mascot and a trip to The Merc gift shop and bookstore.

Check it out the full gallery here. 

If you missed us this time, sign up to join us October 27.

  • Students were welcomed by our mascot Stinger in the photo booth.
