Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, VA is celebrating the centennial of its founding in 1917 as Eastern Mennonite School.  The name changed to Eastern Mennonite College in 1947 and then to Eastern Mennonite University in 1994.  

The EMU centennial webpages include a timeline of the institution's history or you can view historical images and a timeline in a digital version of the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of the alumni publication, Crossroads.  
Donald B. Kraybill, professor at Elizabethtown College and and a distinguished alum of EMU, will also author a new history of the institution that is scheduled for fall release.
