  • Home campus: East Mississippi Community College's original home is the Scooba campus, established in 1927. The announcement of a district-wide tuition guarantee program in April 2009, combined with a struggling economy, has translated into large enrollment increases in recent years. The Scooba campus now serves more than 1,000 residential and commuter students.
  • Accreditation: EMCC is fully accredited by the Southern Association of College and Schools. This means your academic classes will transfer to any senior college of your choice with whom EMCC maintains an articulation agreement. EMCC is articulated with all senior colleges in the state of Mississippi.
  • Classes: The Scooba campus offers a full range of academic classes that can prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university. It also serves students interested in career-technical programs ending in certificates or two-year associate’s degrees. Career-technical programs are available at the Scooba campus: Funeral Services, Forestry, Welding and Fabrication, Basic Electrical Lineworker, Ophthalmic Technology, Business Technology and Health Care Assistant. The average class size at EMCC is about 20 students.
  • Workforce Services: EMCC’s Workforce Services team has expanded its offerings on the Scooba campus to give students the skills they need to compete for jobs in a changing local economy. Workforce Services offers Construction Skills, Welding, Basic Manufacturing Skills and Entrepreneurship in Scooba, and is working on other classes as the demand arises.
  • Dual Enrollment: EMCC launched a district-wide pilot program in the 2011-12 school year to introduce tuition-free online dual enrollment classes. Dual enrollment allows qualified students to earn college credit before they graduate from high school. The pilot resulted in a 126 percent increase in enrollment.
  • New Sullivan-Windham Field: During the 2010-11 school year, EMCC students watched as New Sullivan-Windham Field rose on the west side of campus. The new, bigger stadium features artificial turf, lots of additional seating and parking, locker rooms, a press box, entrance gate and concession stand. The new field made its debut at the start of the 2011 football season. Hand-in-hand with the stadium came new, covered tail-gating areas for the EMCC president and his guests, faculty, students and families. The EMCC Lions went on to claim the MACJC state football championship and are the defending NJCAA national football champions ... a Cinderella season fueled by hard work and a lot of Lion spirit.
  • Speaking of football: A book by Mike Frascogna about the life of legendary EMCC football coach “Bull” Sullivan went into its second printing in the 2011-12 school year. It’s called “Bull Cyclone Sullivan and the Lions of Scooba, Mississippi.” EMCC is featured in another book by Frascogna called, “The Toughest Football League in America.” You can find both at local bookstores, or contact the EMCC Development Foundation for more information. Also on the horizon is a Frascogna documentary about community and junior college football.
  • More championships: The EMCC men’s basketball team is the defending NJCAA Region 23 Champion. The Lady Lions softball team is the current MACJC North Division Champion.
  • Rodeo: The newest addition to the sports scene at the Scooba campus is rodeo, which debuted in the 2010-11 school year. And, in that first year, freshman Will Lummus of West Point qualified to compete in the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyo. A horse barn was completed in fall 2011, and the team’s mounts took up residence in November, enabling rodeo team members to live on campus in Scooba.
  • Chapel addition: Staff, faculty, students and alumni gathered in November 2010 as EMCC broke ground for an addition to the Chapel in the Pines – the Buster and Jeanie Orr Center for Christian Activity. The 4,200-square-foot fellowship hall includes a kitchen, office space and large multi-purpose meeting area. Alumni Buster and Jeanie Orr met as students at EMCC, and have remained faithful supporters of the college’s commitment to nurture the minds, bodies and spirits of students. The new facility was officially dedicated in December 2011.
  • Student Union: EMCC broke ground for a new Student Union in November 2010 – the same day, in fact, as the ground-breaking for the chapel addition. The Student Union will enclose about  35,000 square feet and include a full-service cafeteria with a seating capacity of more than 450, special event rooms, the new bookstore, a convenience store/grill for extended hours of food service and a lot of study and social space for residential and commuter students. It will be equipped with energy-efficient windows (made in Mississippi) that have energized glass to reduce heat-loss in winter and heat-gain in summer. There will be Wi-Fi throughout and 15 flat screen televisions in the building with music, news and college-related programming.  The Student Union is scheduled to be complete in summer 2012.
  • More projects: In the coming years, EMCC plans to renovate the existing cafeteria space, and build a security station/welcome center, a 20-acre lake, a nine-hole golf course and a meeting place for business and industry leaders.
