Emmanuel College (EC) Residence Hall rooms are equipped with an Ethernet Network Connection which grants your computer access to the Campus Network (EC Network), and the Internet. The Residence Hall Network is a part of the EC Network and its governance, therefore, is subject to all laws, rules, and policies that govern the entire EC Network. Student use of this connection is a privilege and any use violating the terms of this agreement will result in the suspension, or termination, of this privilege and may result in other disciplinary actions. The following policies are designed to help protect our customers, as well as the Internet in general, from inappropriate or illegal activities.
Impersonation: Alteration of any header information (known as spoofing) with the intention of misleading or impersonating other users, or systems, is prohibited.
Unauthorized Use: Attempts to gain access to any other computer system, without the consent of the owner of that system, are prohibited.
Commercial or Business Use: Using the EC Network for commercial or business purposes is prohibited.
Copyright Infringement: Using the EC Network to distribute copyrighted material without the permission of the author is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, the use or distribution of items such as web art, registered names, software applications, and music.
Harmful Use: Activity adversely affecting the ability of other people, or systems to use the EC Network, the Internet or other connected networks is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, any action, or attempted action, resulting in the denial of service to other networks, systems, or individuals.
Excessive Bandwidth Use: Using excessive bandwidth, as determined by the EC Director of Information Systems, which adversely affects use of the EC Network, the Internet, or any other connected network, is prohibited.
Unsolicited Mass E-mail: Using the EC Network as a means of distributing unsolicited mass e-mail is prohibited.
Introduction of Non-Authorized Equipment: Introduction of any networking equipment onto the EC Network is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, items such as hubs, switches, bridges, routers, and access servers. Non-authorized equipment is subject to confiscation and disposal at the discretion of the DIS.
No Expectation of Privacy: Users are advised that any traffic sent across the EC Network should be considered public. There are three primary reasons that network data must be considered public. First, as with any use of networks, there is the potential for hackers illegally gaining access, thus compromising data integrity. Second, the EC Network and the data traversing the network may be subject to the State Open Records act. Third, proper network maintenance requires EC personnel to monitor the network. Users are advised that monitoring requires EC personnel to view data transmitted across the network. Emmanuel College will cooperate with appropriate legal authorities in investigating claims of illegal activity. In addition, EC staff will report to appropriate legal authorities, any illegal action brought to our attention during the routine monitoring, or maintenance, of the EC Network.
Systems Security: Your system, when attached to the EC Network, will be vulnerable to attacks from anywhere on the Internet. It is your responsibility to properly secure your system. Failure to do so may result in damage to your system, and/or the suspension of networking services, until you demonstrate to the CIS that the security problem has been resolved. It is imperative that you maintain a current anti-virus program that is active anytime your computer is operational.
Network Security Scanning: To assist users with detection of vulnerabilities to attacks, the CIS will run random security scans of connected systems. The purpose of these scans is to assess the vulnerability of systems to attack, not to view network content.
Networking Systems Maintenance: Occasionally, maintenance is required on various components of the EC Network systems. EC reserves the right to preempt use of the network for maintenance whenever necessary. However, the DIS will make every effort to provide users with appropriate notice, and will perform maintenance at off-peak hours whenever possible.
Legal Liability: Emmanuel College shall not be held legally responsible, or liable, for any damage caused to computer systems by connection to the EC Network, power source, recommendations or actions of support personnel, or faulty documentation. Users should access network resources, documentation materials, and advice from support personnel with discretion.
Failure to Comply: Emmanuel College reserves the right to disconnect - without prior notice - any connection violating the terms of this document, the Acceptable Use Policies, the Information Systems Student Policies manual, or the "Georgia Computer Systems Protection Act Of 1991, Amended 1996" . Any violations of these policies will be handled through EC Student Life disciplinary actions and/or Legal Authorities. If you are disconnected for any reason any money collected is NONREFUNDABLE.

Spiritual Life at Emmanuel College hopes to live up to the meaning of our name: God with us. We seek to implement events, settings, relationships and an environment that will encourage students to be a community of authentic followers of Christ. We hope the spiritual climate is vibrant and all-inclusive, helping students build biblical views of God, self and others with the overall aim of contributing to their spiritual formation. Through small groups, corporate gatherings like Convocation and Chapel, classroom learning, spiritual disciplines and mentoring, those goals can be accomplished.

Flexibility is a major strength of the Communication Department. When students complete 15 hours of core communication courses, then they select one of two majors: communication studies or graphic design.

These majors are designed to lead toward acceptance into graduate school for communication or secure entry-level positions in a variety of career fields, including Media Production, Public Relations, Video Editing, Advertising, Layout and Design, Marketing, Fundraising, Human Resource Development, Communication Training and Consulting, etc.
To be officially considered as a communication major, students must hold sophomore status or higher, be in good standing, and hold a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 or higher. Students with less than 2.50 will not be eligible to receive a degree in communication from Emmanuel College.
Communication majors whose cumulative GPA drops below 2.50 are no longer considered communication majors. Acceptance back into the major is based on the decision of communication faculty. Students will not be admitted or readmitted into the program without the minimum 2.50 GPA.

Constructed in 1975, Drum Hall provides an energetic atmosphere for its 70 residents to live and form relationships. Located on the main residential quad on campus, Drum Hall consists of three floors of residential living space (the top two floors are for women, and the lowest residential floor is for men). Each floor is separated by a lobby with couches, tables, and flat-screen televisions equipped with cable. The ground floor contains a main lobby area with a flat screen television, kitchen, and laundry room.
Drum Hall is known for its great location close to the dining hall, Student Activity Center and the Aaron Academic building, and view of the residential quad. Each room has its own air conditioning and heating unit.
Known for its long history, tradition, sisterhood, and upbeat residents, Jackson Hall is often a top choice for incoming female students. Jackson Hall is located on main campus, facing the central quad, and has resident parking directly behind. In this 98 bed-capacity residence hall, room sizes range from small singles to a large triple-occupancy room. Each room is equipped with essential furniture and adjustable loft beds, most of which can be bunked or unbunked, depending on space and resident preference. The residence hall is composed of three floors for residents and is sectioned into four “halls,” each of which is overseen by a Resident Assistant.
Lobby areas are located throughout the building. The main and largest lobby sits at ground level and serves as the main entrance to Jackson Hall. Another smaller lobby, lovingly nicknamed “The Max,” has full kitchen access and sits a floor below the main lobby. Other lobbies and sitting areas are located throughout the building, providing ideal lounge and study space. Students also enjoy high-speed Internet access, including wireless, and an in-house laundry facility.
King Street is an all-female, upperclassmen residence hall. Residents in this dorm enjoy suite-style rooms with no curfew. The two rooms in each suite are connected by a private bath, usually shared by four residents. Students often take advantage of King Street as a great place to study, since it is known for its quiet atmosphere. In order to live in this location, residents must meet specific requirements, as outlined in the Residence Life Guide.
Located just a short walk away from main campus, this 30-plus capacity residence hall has two floors, each with a lobby, mini-kitchen area and a laundry facility. Both lobbies are equipped with comfortable seating, tables, and flat-screen TVs with cable access. Students also have access to high-speed Internet, including wireless access.
Melton Hall is an all-male, upperclassmen residence hall, known for its easygoing atmosphere and having no curfew. Melton Hall has over 30 beds and offers suite-style living, usually with two students per room, four per suite, and a bathroom between the two rooms.
Melton Hall provides two lobby areas – one on each floor – and each lobby serves as a highly communal area, since they are located just outside the resident rooms. Even with comfortable seating, cable TVs, and a fun atmosphere in the lobbies, this residence hall still provides plenty of quiet space for study. Resident requirements are outlined in the Residence Life Guide.
Wellons Hall, constructed from 1958 to 1959, has three floors of men’s rooms and houses approximately 95 male students. Known for its tight-knit community and close proximity to central campus, the residential male students often desire to live in Wellons Hall for longer than two years instead of making the transition to Melton Hall or Terrace.
Wellons offers central heating and air, high-speed Internet, a comfortable lobby with cable television, a laundry room, kitchen, and fully furnished rooms.
