I was recruited by Emory and Henry by a coach /recruiter who said they were going D2 , would be
giving scholarships, and he could see me being the backup running
back. It sounds good,but don’t believe anything this school tells
you. It’s a money grab! They recruited me and then I didn’t even
dress out.I had never heard of Emory and Henry-would never have gone
there had they not pursued me.Other players got fed the same line.
Even a starter said he asked himself every day why he ever went there
because the school was so bad. The food is horrible, but on campus
students have to get a food plan. Campus socials-approx 20/people. I
was assigned a house on campus with athletes that was spider infested
w paint peeling everywhere, but it was better than the rundown dorms.
Forget rest- a train comes in front of the campus several times a day
and night. I wouldn’t go back even if I were starting. It was that
bad. Virginia has better colleges.
My overall opinion about Emory and Henry is that they tried to get every student involve with something. There is always help of you need some. They make you feel like you party of a family. You don't have to be involve in sport. They have many different activity student can get involved in.
I love Emory & Henry! I am so glad that I chose to go here! It provides a great community feel and many educational opportunities. The college may be small, but it is what creates the rural community around it. The opportunities are endless when you go to E&H!
Terrible school overall, the only people leaving good reviews are probably staff or the few people involved for in our pathetic excuse for Greek life

If I was able to return to high school and speak to my former self, I would advise the inexperienced, naive adolescent before me to straighten up and realize that the future is what truly matters. As a youth I was far more concerned with what party was coming up, or what the outcome of the big game was, then what college I would attend, or the career I would land in. I realize now that this was a severe lack in judgement. I would explain to myself that none of the trivial teenage ideals will matter in the five years to come, and if I am more studious and concentrate on my future, that I will undoubtedly achieve all of the goals that I will one day aspire to. Post high school life is more difficult than any seventeen year old will realize, and I would make sure that the version of myself I was speaking to understood that fact, and took care of business while the opportunity was still available, rather than wasting my effort and delaying my adult self's success.
The location is probably the worst part of the school. Seven miles from Abingdon seems like it is in the middle of nowhere. Also, as a Christian, sometimes the beliefs and values that I have are questioned or thrown out completely. Not that all colleges do not have this, but i feel that this is very influential in how I rate my experience here.
Most classmates have either become great friends or "family".
Very strong athletic programs. If you are student athlete than you are getting the best quality in division III atheletics. Also the teachers are very kind and will work with you.
This school is very diverse and open to many types of people. Someone who is not interested in a small school should not come here because it is a very small school. You really get to know your professors and the people around you. If you are not a sociable person or someone who wants to get lost in the crowd, then this is not the place for you. We are a very diverse school and all types of races, backgrounds and religions are here. It is not an exclusive school, but it is small.
Emory and Henry College is a strong academic school that promotes a student's growth through diversified educational experiences. Not only is it challenging academically, it also provides an arena for learning lifetime skills designed to create a socially aware and contributory participant in our world today. This well-rounded curriculum is backed by a meaningful and strong Christian belief which is apparent in the care and concern each administrator, professor, and student body displays toward all collegiates. Emory and Henry College is a place that will make a difference in a student and in his desire to succeed.
What makes my school unique is that we're not just a school, but a family. Emory and Henry College only has a little over 1,000 students, so we all know each other on a personal level verses a large university. It makes your learning experience a lot more interesting when you can just walk around the corner in any building and see a familiar face. Not only do you know every student, you know your professors on a personal level. If I have any questions, my professors give me one-on-one help with my work.
The school is small but that is its advantage. The teachers actually know their students and can offer more personal help.
The most frustrating thing about school is in the beginning you feel like you cannot manage your time. You feel swamped with all the work you're doing and you have to get used to the adjustments. Especially if you do a sport, you feel more stressed out.
I think people who thrive in close-knit communties should attend Emory and Henry College. This college is at the size where it is easy to get to know many of the people on campus. Emory and Henry is also an excellent college for people who love the outdoors. The Outdoor Program organizes a variety of trips throughout the year. People that enjoy doing community service and helping others will also fit in well at Emory and Henry College. Serving others is heavily emphasized at this lovely college because it helps promote selflessness and compassion.
i dont wish to have known anything different than i did when i came to visit for the first time. its just the right school
The school is best known for the friendly people and how they make you feel at home. The college is very open and friendly to anyone who comes to visit or wants to attend. From the day I stepped foot on campus I have never not been told hello with a smile as I pass someone. It makes students feel welcomed and included in what I like to call home.
