What I experience at Eastern Michigan when I was on a college tour is life on campus. All the students were really nice and optimistic about showing us around campus. I really like their campus, and how the environment and how they make it feel like home. Also, I love how they have a lot of majors to chose from.

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. I have been out of school for 5 years and I have yet to land a career in my field. I am now going back for a second bachelor's degree, this time in Social Work, then a Masters degree. If I could change a few issues at Eastern I would say they need to drop tuition costs, improve safety on campus and employ capable advisors who will help and speak the truth about the field you are trying to enter. All of these factors combined would help to create a better experience.

So far my 2 years at Eastern Michigan University have gone pretty well. Aside from my personal difficulties, the school itself is a pretty decent school. EMU is located in Ypsilanti which doesn't have the greatest reputation but campus seems to be like its own little city; one that's much safer but still can be dangerous. EMU is also known for being incredibly accepting of the LGBT community and every year people get together to make a gay pride flag out of little colored flags representing gay youth who commit suicide. Last year these freshman destroyed it the night it went up and the next morning people from all over campus came together to put it back together. Greek life on campus makes up less than 1% but us Greeks stand up for one another despite the rivalries. There are many clubs and organizations that people can choose to be apart of that suits their interests. If I had to choose to go here again, I would. It's a semi-large university but you get more one on one instruction because class sizes are smaller than those of massive universities.
