Student Life

Approximately 86% of a student’s time is spent outside of the classroom.

Let’s make it count! 

Ellen Hicks“Student Life at Emory & Henry has allowed me to explore my interests and customize my college experience. I’ve had the opportunity to serve as a Resident Advisor, Student Resident Director, Community Advisor, Head Photographer and Business Manager for the Whitetopper, and Sacristan for Spiritual Life, all of which have given me a sense of belonging and of leadership.”
-Ellen Hicks, Class of 2020 


The average Emory & Henry College student is one who not only excels in the classroom but is involved in co-curricular programs as well. Whether through membership and leadership in student organizations, participation in intramural events and outdoor adventures, exploring religious and spiritual opportunities, or being active in residence hall programming, the E&H student is engaged and learning in many exciting areas of campus life!

The McPherson Center, previously known to the campus community as the Village Community Center, has transitioned to serve as a center for living and learning. The offices and spaces housed in the Center are the Office of Housing & Residence Life, Student Activities, Greek Life, Intramural Sports, the campus commuter student lounge, collaborative student programming space, recreation spaces and the fitness gym, and outdoor programming spaces. Come by the office and talk with our staff about all of the incredible campus life opportunities that are provided!

Need a break from studying? How about a movie night?

EAB Cinema, sponsored by the Emory Activities Board, provides online streaming of movies free to all E&H students. Choose from eight new titles each month. 

Visit the EAB Cinema movie site 

EAB Cinema is a service funded by the student activities fee, a fee created by the Student Government Association to support expanding campus involvement opportunities.
