You’re invited to experience Emmanuel College during our annual Preview events. Visiting the campus will allow you an opportunity to witness first-hand the welcoming atmosphere, caring community members and our outstanding facilities. Our Preview experiences are designed to allow you to interact with faculty, staff, and current students, attend classes, stay overnight in the residence halls*, and review the resources Emmanuel College has to offer. When you leave the EC campus, you will know exactly how we can support your academic, personal, and vocational goals. Find out why Emmanuel is a good fit for you at Preview!
