What Students Are Saying

EMU is a great school with a beautiful campus where you can build strong connections with fellow students for lifelong friendships, and with professors for great references after college or summer internships. At EMU, a cross cultural is worked into the curriculum, so seeing the world is required, and gives you the opportunity to become well rounded. Finally, at EMU, you are a person, where the faculty goes out of their way to work with you, not just a number on campus.

If you want community, love for the earth, and cross cultural experience, you'll get it here. Its in the middle of nowhere, but the experiences are unique in that people are wonderful. The classes can be not all to ones liking, but the professors are a joy to be taught by.
