With a capacity crowd for history in the making, Emmanuel College welcomed 1,200 people to the Dedication Ceremony of its new Athletic Center on Saturday, Oct. 6, during Homecoming Weekend 2012.
It is the policy of Emmanuel College to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities. Federal law (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990) established the rights of individuals with disabilities. Emmanuel College shall comply with all applicable federal laws and regulations regarding reasonable accommodations needed to provide equal opportunity to qualified individuals with disabilities.
Each year more high school students with disabilities are planning to continue their education at institutions of higher education, such as Emmanuel College. As a student with a disability, students entering college need to be well informed about changes in their rights and responsibilities as well as the rights and responsibilities afforded by the College. A student who is well informed will help to ensure a full opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the postsecondary education experience without confusion or delay. Prospective students with disabilities are encouraged to contact or visit Emmanuel College Disability Services in their junior or senior years in high school in order to find out more about disability services at the college level.
There is often a misperception by students entering college and their parents that postsecondary schools and school districts have the same responsibilities in regard to provision of academic adjustments for students with disabilities. This is often not the case; the responsibilities of postsecondary schools are significantly different from those of school districts at the secondary level. Also, the responsibilities of students with disabilities are significantly different as well. As a student with a disability enters the college setting, it is in their best interest to know their rights and responsibilities and the rights and responsibilities of the postsecondary schools under Section 504 and Title II. Doing so will improve the opportunity to succeed in a postsecondary education.

Austina Jordan, Emmanuel College’s Director of Library Services, is participating in the 2012-13 College Library Directors Mentor Program.
Jordan has been a librarian at Emmanuel since 2007 and was promoted to director this year. She is paired with mentor Oakley Coburn, Library Dean at Wofford College.
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.
Emmanuel College welcomes the newest local chapter of Beta Beta Beta (TriBeta), a national honor society for biology students.
Founded in 1922 with more than 550 chapters to date, TriBeta is dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research.
“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.
