WHAT I LIKED

The professors in my program are wonderful! I also have had several amazing professors for gen eds. I love how diverse campus life is here. There are hundreds of clubs to join and events/activities constantly happening across campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Campus can be somewhat unsafe at night, especially for women. Please make sure if you go out at night you are not alone! Also, I had a bad experience with the dining hall food at EMU. There was a living bug in my spinach!

WHAT I LIKED

I loved on campus my freshman year and really enjoyed it. I met many friends and was a part of the softball club as well. There usually was plenty of parking even if you had to walk a mile. The food was okay, some places were better than others. I did enjoy my time at EMU both living and class-wise.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorms were very small but that is to be expected. The water pressure in the showers wasn't great either. I wasn’t a fan of the parking because of the walking distance in the winter.
