Eastern Mennonite University Reviews
The word ‘nice’ itself is a good example of a nice adjective. It’s nondescript, the opposite of descriptive. If a friend went on vacation and described the Colosseum as ‘nice’, you wouldn’t be any wiser as to how it felt to stand in an ancient, enormous arena. Similarly, if someone described their new friend to you as ‘nice’, you wouldn’t know much about their personality or appearance.
I enjoy EMU because of their emphasis on community building, sustainability, and peace building. They are furthering diverse student demographics racially, religiously, by gender and cultural backgrounds. It is set close to JMU, and close to downtown Harrisonburg, so there is plenty to do on weekends on campus, with other campuses, and off campus.
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.
