University description (as per official university website)
Founded in 1836, Emory & Henry is the oldest college in Southwest Virginia. It is also one of the few colleges in the South to have operated more than 160 years under the same name and with the same affiliation: the United Methodist Church.
The campus encompasses 331 pristine acres in the village of Emory, Virginia, in the Virginia Highlands, one-half mile off Interstate 81 (exit 26) and 40 minutes from a major regional airport. The campus is within view of Virginia's two highest peaks, Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain, and is near the historic town of Abingdon, Virginia, home of the renowned Barter Theatre. Also within easy driving distance is the metropolitan Tri-Cities region of Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport. Take our video tour.
The E&H campus is home to students as well as E&H professors, administrators and retired college employees. It is an "academical" environment in the spirit of Thomas Jefferson that underscores the broad dedication within the community to each student's enlightenment and success. By developing strong professional and personal relationships with their professors, E&H students never meet the challenges of the classroom, or the real world, alone.
