Austina Jordan, Emmanuel College’s Director of Library Services, is participating in the 2012-13 College Library Directors Mentor Program.

Jordan says this opportunity affords her the opportunity to learn from another library director who has several years of experience and knowledge.
It was a history making day this past Saturday for Emmanuel's cross country program. On a foggy and cool morning, the Lions showed their dominance with a strong showing in the final two miles to win the 2012 Southern States Athletic Conference Championship, in only the program's second year of competition. The Lions also garnered several other SSAC accolades.
For the third consecutive year, Emmanuel College is again certified as an NAIA 5 Star Champions of Character Institution for the 2011-12 school year.
Emmanuel has received this recognition every year since the initiative began in 2009.
As the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) names their annual Fall Sports All-Academic Team on October 23, Emmanuel College tops the list with 33 student athletes earning this prestigious honor.
In 2011-12, Emmanuel had 25 student athletes who made the All-Academic Team for the entire year.

“TriBeta recognizes the very best science students at Emmanuel College and gives these outstanding students another outlet to serve the campus and community,” says Dr. Brian Peek, Chair of Natural Sciences at Emmanuel.
