Since I attend the Lancaster, PA campus, I believe that this program is one of the best ones out there. So many of my fellow co-workers previously went through the program and I never heard anything negative about it. It was absolutely wonderful! As I continue on in the program with my cohort, I believe that the quality of the employers at EMU strive for excellence and ensure all the students are happy and well taken care of.

The upper classmen have the opportunity to live in two different housing options (both are types of on campus apartments). It is nice for those of us who are juniors or seniors to be able to have our own space, but many do wish that the no drinking rule did not apply to us. Parkwoods, where I live, is very social. On nice days, everyone has their doors open, everyone sits on their porch, and it becomes a great big homework party!

Dorms Are Amazing! You have to see it to believe it when I say they are amazing! The three newly renovated dorms are beyond spectacular. They are green friendly and packed with so many little things that make it outstanding. Each hall is loaded with huge 40"+ LCD TV's, automatic lighting and free laundry! All the dorms have hotel style living with the most up to date technology such as dual flushing, self controlled air systems and very fine smoke detectors which are set off even with burnt popcorn.
