You are away from home, you meet your RA and people on your floor, oh my, there are so many like minded people here, and we get to grow together. Emmaus felt like a summer camp - so many friends, great experiences and heart ache. But let me tell you something, a lot of people lose focus of the future, and so many people I graduated with ended up with dead end jobs - This college DOES NOT prepare you for life after college.

You will end up with a lot of student debt, and unless you want to become a Theologian or preacher, you will have a useless degree in Bible. You are better off going to a community college or in-state college. State colleges have devoted Christian groups like Navigators/Campus Crusade/InterVarsity. If I could go back in time, I would not go to Emmaus Bible College - I did make lifetime friends there, but so many people ended up with dead end careers.

Emmaus is the type of place that I would highly recommend if you are a student looking for a place of community, excellent teaching, and spiritual growth. As a student, my favorite part of the school is that the professors want to see you succeed and genuninely love you! Connections with fellow students and professors are ones I won't forget.
I have so enjoyed my time at Emmaus thus far! The professors are great, they really invest in the lives of the students. The campus environment is inviting and welcoming from the start. This is a place of spiritual growth and the accumulation of Bible knowledge. I have learned so much about the Bible and Business (my degree program) and I feel I will be ready to enter the workforce when I graduate next spring.
