The Education Club is a recognized student organization within the SOE with faculty advisors from SOE faculty. All teacher candidates are eligible to join, and teacher candidates new to the SOE are recruited by the club for membership. Student officers, elected by the membership, govern the club. The club provides social functions and informative meetings, which supplement the regular activities of the SOE.
As a Christian liberal arts college, Emmanuel provides educational opportunities that go beyond job training in marketable skills for employment. Studying liberal arts is not synonymous with career preparation. The general education program is designed to help the person develop as a holistic individual in society. In that a liberal arts education seeks to help the student make a life rather than merely a living, and that career goals often change, the general education program is highly valuable for career preparation, and for further work toward a baccalaureate degree.
