Donna Quick could not help but smile while driving on Highway 17, making her way to Emmanuel College to formally accept the position of Vice President of Enrollment. But this was not the first time Ms. Quick has made the drive to Emmanuel.
“I have had a long history with Emmanuel College,” Quick said. “It was kind of a legacy situation where a lot of my family members had attended, so I have always known about Emmanuel. I never really strongly considered any other colleges as a student, so following both parents’ footsteps and an older brother and sister, I ended up at Emmanuel.”
A native of Augusta, Maine, Timothy Dibden knew from an early age that he was called to go into ministry. He heard of Emmanuel College through his father, a pastor of an IPHC church and felt led to apply.
“It was actually the only school I felt led to apply to,” Dibden said. “The general idea was if I was not accepted to Emmanuel, I was not going to college, at least not then anyway.”
Earlier this week, U.S. News & World Report released their list of “Best Value Schools,” with Emmanuel coming in as the #8 Regional (South) “Best Value School” for 2017 adding to the growing list of accolades Emmanuel has received this semester.
EC President Ron White says he is a firm believer in keeping a private education affordable, something Emmanuel strives to do each year.
Earlier this week, Backgroundcheck.org released their annual ranking of the Safest Colleges in Georgia for 2016, with Emmanuel College coming in at #2.
For this list, a “college” is considered an accredited public or private not-for-profit institution, offering four-year degree programs.

19 years ago this October, her prayer was answered. The love that she has for Emmanuel College and how it is displayed in every interaction she has with students and staff members makes Mrs. Harper this week’s Faculty & Staff Spotlight.
Being home-schooled, Kora Addington never thought that the life she leads now would be the one she would be living. Trying to figure out credits for college, it seemed more stressful than a possibility she could afford.
However, attending college would become a reality after a chance meeting with Emmanuel Head Archery Coach, Rodney Estrada.
A native of Kennesaw, Georgia, Kora started shooting when she was 15. She would compete at state and local tournaments, some of which Coach Estrada would judge. But one tournament would lead to Kora’s dream of earning her BA.
