A Historic Campus with Surprising Beauty

For nearly two centuries, Emory & Henry has provided quality higher education in Southwest Virginia. Being the region’s oldest campus for higher learning, its location is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Our campus, located in the Appalachian highlands, is surrounded by the region’s picturesque mountains, forests and valleys giving students a relaxing, rural environment for studying and college life. Hundreds of students, faculty and staff make up the campus community. Whether strolling through campus or in the classroom, new friends can be made and friendly greetings can be easily found.

Our campus community and visitors can enjoy the historic buildings—each marked by year erected—and seasonal scenery by strolling through the walking trail systems. A favorite location for many is the Duck Pond, which is fed by a natural spring and attracts ducks all year round. The village of Emory, Va. includes attractions such as a student apartment community, gift shop and bookstore, and the Emory Cemetary.
