September is here at Emory & Henry!

Wow, can you believe it's already almost mid-September? This year has been different in many ways and is flying by. We have all had to adjust to new circumstances on so many fronts. Parents, counselors, school contacts, students, faculty and staff have all completed amazing feats to guarantee rich educational experiences.

Congratulations on making it this far—you’ve earned it! #YOUCAN & more!

At Emory & Henry College, we also have been working hard—not only to prepare students for the world of work through a valuable and affordable education, but to ensure they adapt and thrive no matter what life throws their way. Here are just a few of the ways that students can interact and benefit from a connection with us.

    • Essay Requirement Waived: We are no longer requiring an essay as part of the application process.

We encourage Spring term enrollment and students can still enter this academic year. If you know students who would benefit from Spring term enrollment, please encourage them to apply to Emory & Henry College.

This year’s virtual program, held October 24-25, is designed for high school seniors of color as well as those who have championed diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives at their school. We encourage you to invite your students to apply.

As you likely know, at Mount Holyoke, diversity is more than compositional. Our diversity and inclusion efforts focus on understanding our community’s multiple identities through the lens of social justice education, ally development, and identity exploration. We value the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, national origin, and religious/spiritual identities – not only in the classroom, but in co-curricular activities, and in interpersonal relationships. Here’s what a few of our current students have to say about Mount Holyoke:

“The community I found through the cultural centers has been my rock. MEChA has changed my life both as an activist and a person.” Kimberly Mota, New York, New York

“I am affiliated with the Betty Shabazz cultural center through my participation in the Association of Pan African Unity (APAU). This space has enriched my MHC experience by being a space where I can fully express myself and find support from other students of the African diaspora. It’s where I’ve been most comfortable and supported as a Black woman at Mount Holyoke.” Olivia Lucas, Oakland, CA 

“When I first came to Mount Holyoke during the Experience Diversity Weekend, I went to the open house for the Asian Center for Empowerment and met the Liga Filipina org. I met students who looked like me, came from similar backgrounds as me, were strong and independent, had something to say and weren’t afraid to say it.” Kalea Martin, Waddell, Arizona  

Eager to hear more student voices?

The College Search - From Stress to SUCCESS
Finding the Perfect College and How to Pay for It!! with thousands of options available, deciding where to attend college can be a challenging task. However,...
Because Grinnell College cannot host overnight visitors, this year our "Grinnell Diversity Travel Opportunity" will instead be a virtual "Grinnell Diversity Preview Program." The preview program is a great way to discover your place at one of the nation’s top liberal arts colleges.  learn more about all of our virtual visit options

To minimize the amount of time in front of a screen in one sitting, the program will occur in three short sessions on three different days. Students and families may participate in one or all of the sessions:
  • Oct. 12, 4:30 – 5:45 p.m. (CDT)
    "What is Grinnell College, and why should I want to go there?"
    Learn about Grinnell from a couple of admission counselors and take a live virtual tour with current students!

  • Oct. 18, 2 – 3:15 p.m. (CDT)
    "How do students intellectually explore and engage at Grinnell College?"
    Hear about academic life from currently enrolled students and participate in a Q&A!

  • October 25, 2 – 3:15 p.m. (CDT)
    "Will I fit in? What’s it really like for diverse students at Grinnell?"
    Meet staff from Intercultural Affairs and hear from a panel of diverse currently enrolled students.
Have your students register for Grinnell's Diversity Preview Program!

To participate, students must be high school seniors, students of color (African American/Black, Asian, Latinx, or Native American) or the first in their family to attend college, and interested in a liberal arts education (arts and humanities, mathematics and sciences, and social sciences). While this program is primarily for domestic students, international students are welcome to participate.
