After Eastern Michigan University
- Very Good883
Eastern Michigan University is the best! The campus size is perfect, with a beautiful scenery all year round! The student to teacher ratio is very appropriate (30:1 in a normal class). EMU also has a very diverse campus, which I personally love. It is awesome to get to talk to and make new friends through different backgrounds! The professors are very genuine and are always looking to help students to do their best. There are several ways to get involved on campus, whether its through Greek life, academic clubs, club sports, intramural sports, jobs across campus, and more!

I live in the Honors Dorm, Downing Hall, and I like it! It's right across the street from Pray Harrold, where a ton of general education classes are held, so that's convenient. It also connects to the Commons Dining Facility via an underground tunnel, which will be especially nice in winter. The laundry facility is the worst part so far - four loads of laundry costs $10, which is a lot when you're living on a full-time student budget. The mail is delivered to the front desk, and if you have the correct postage, you can send mail from there too, which is very convenient as well.

Eastern Michigan University doesn't have renowned sports teams, but that doesn't mean we don't have several impressive athletes. I'm friends with someone on the track team and swim team. Their practices are rigorous and they work very hard. In terms of school spirit and pride, the football season has plenty of events to spike enthusiasm in students! Our school is small, but that doesn't mean we can't be excited about our athletes! Personally I haven't involved myself in any sports yet, as adjusting to my college studies has been my top priority, but I use the EMU Rec center practically everyday. In addition, there are several fitness classes, ranging from Zumba to Kickboxing, that are available to students. It's fun, fit, and you feel great after. That is what athleticism is all about and EMU works hard to promote that.
