Emory & Henry College Reviews
Everyone at Emory is very nice! Everyone is so helpful here. The class size is smaller so you're able to connect to the other students and the teachers easier. The environment is also really nice, here you can make a mistake or ask a question without people making you feel like you're stupid.
Emory and Henry College is known as Emory and Henry high school for a reason. For the price of this school, you’re basically paying for a high school experience. There are minimal food options (which are typically bad), dorms are falling apart (even the new ones), and there is no social life on campus. Emory’s classes are so limited that students struggle to graduate in four years and professors are limited as well. The campus is not well lit, dorms are easily accessible, and overall it is not a very safe campus. Housing is also very limited and expensive and the option to live off campus is only allowed for those 23+. Although Greek life is a huge part of the school, the school does not support it. If you plan to transfer, plan on doing so after freshman year because credits most likely will not transfer.
I love Emory & Henry College because it's a very inclusive school with great academics programs. It has a mixture of students, thus including a variety of cultures and diversity. The sports programs are pretty successful, and the professors are all great and willing to help you outside of class. The class sizes are nice because the teachers can actually pay attention to you. The campus had a super friendly feel to it because it's so small.
