Eastern Michigan University Reviews

27 reviews
My fours years at Eastern Michigan University were great! I Remembered being so nervous when I was moving to campus. I was nervous for nothing. My freshman orientation was so welcoming! I made so many new friends. The campus is very beautiful and not too big so you don’t have to worry about being lost. Here, at Eastern, we believe in corroborating. When something is going left, the people come together to brainstorm on how to many things go right. You can always count on the help of others. Professors are considerate and always willing to go above and beyond to see you succeed. I have really enjoyed my four years here and I am looking forward to furthering my education at the university I love so much.

The campus is very diverse and there is a multitude of student organizations and clubs that you can get involved in! The professors are very personable and are willing to help and make sure you succeed! There are a ton of food options on campus, as well as mini convenience shops available.
I have enjoyed my experience at Eastern Michigan University so far. The classes have been rigorous and beneficial to the current work that I am doing. The professors respond immediately to questions I have about assignments. Assignments have a purpose and are beneficial to the students. There do not seem to be a lot of assignments that are just busy work. The program that I am in is totally online. I could not have been in the program if it required in person classes. The admissions process was complicated at times. The departments all seemed to be saying something different at different times. This could be fixed. Also, there is not a list of graduate scholarships available and that would really help me to pay for my classes.
