Eastern Michigan University Reviews
Eastern's campus isn't huge so everything is nearby and close together. It's mostly a commuter school though. Living in the dorms is nice because of the proximity to classes being so close but the food isn't much of a highlight. Eastern offers mostly Monday - Thursday classes. It's actually difficult to find Friday courses, giving a large majority of students a three day weekend! Events that occur on campus usually end up going Monday - Thursday as well, but if you're staying on campus during the three-day weekend there's not much around. There are nearby parks and Depot Town, but not very much after that. If you go a bit further, Ann Arbor is not too far away and a great place to hang out at! For incoming freshman, orientation is really awesome (even if you're not commuting). The best way to have fun is to be a part of something!
Eastern Michigan University has a very diverse population, so students can easily interact with other cultures that they may have never been exposed to. It has so many clubs and activities to allow for everyone to find their place in the college, and if there isn't a club that someone was hoping to take part of it's super easy to start one! The intimate class sizes allows for a very close relationship with the professors and an overall better learning experience. The people there truly make you feel at home. They also have fantastic majors for a wide variety of students.
Eastern Michigan has great departments. The one that I can speak the most highly about is the disability center. They try to meet the needs of every single student that has needs to be met. My roommate this year is a straight A student, but she has always had problems with reading. To help her they supplied her with audio books! Another great thing is that they show interest in our mental health. Eastern understands that classes can be stressful, and putting that on top of possibly being away from home for the first time, other stressful events in life, and sometimes depression, things can tend to get overwhelming. So, they took the liberty to offer EVERY student about a month of free sessions with a therapist on campus. That lovely opportunity comes from the program CAPS. Of course every school has their ups and downs, but things like this make you feel like you have someone that cares about you, and when you are away from home that can make you feel very secure in a new place.
