Eastern Michigan University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (29)
I liked that EMU offers a 5 year Master program for accounting. I was able to finish much quicker than if I had went to another university. I was a commuter. I was able to graduate debt free by working full-time in the summers and part time during classes. I also received some scholarships which helped to bring the costs down. I would recommend Eastern. It is a good school and is affordable if you plan to commute.
EMU was a fantastic university! I was a member of the Honors Program as well as created my own dual major (with the approval of the Dean of Students). I found my Honors classes to be exceptional in quality in addition to enjoying small class sizes. I was grateful and pleased at the University's willingness and flexibility to grant me a dual major from two separate colleges within the University, once I presented my case. Overall, my experience at EMU was well worth the time and money spent. I am proud to be an EMU alumni and would recommend the University very highly.
EMU administration isn't the greatest when dealing with career advising, but the professors are truly inspiring. I had a blast learning about communication and the professors want you to do well. They make learning interesting and help you apply your knowledge to the real world.
I feel the classes were informative and useful. The professors were knowledgeable about the subjects taught. I don't feel the university had many opportunities to help you get a job. I wish I would I've known about endorsement opportunities before now.
Eastern Michigan University's Social Work Program prepared me better than I could have imagined for the University of Michigan's Master of Social Work Program. The program gives you practice at real life scenarios, and prepares you for your 400-hour internship. Relying on the education that I have received from Eastern Michigan University has helped me get through tough situations throughout my internship, and I could not be anymore grateful or proud of this education.
EMU was a wonderful experience in terms of preparing students for their career. The professors were amazing with different teaching styles and experiences. My favorite part of the program was the mandatory field placement with the degree. Advisors helped us find an internship that we were interested in. The only thing I wish the school offered in the program was more Macro social work classes. Definitely a great school if you are interested in clinical/micro social work.
As one who was indecisive about pursing fashion, this program solidified my views. This program is broad enough to focus on any part of the industry, while gaining a clear picture of the industry's entirety. With a degree in ATM, you can stay in Michigan and find a somewhat relevant job, as I did, or you could move to a fashion capital city and pursue a job at a prestigious company. I would advise that you put extra work in. It's very easy to have a mundane experience, but if you choose to be proactive, and individualize your projects and experiences, it could be a really beneficial program. The professors are great because they have actual industry experience. They are also eager to assist and allow students to use the tools and technology that belongs to the program. The trips are an easy way to gain credit, and are a unique component of the program. Students have the opportunity to really strengthen their portfolio in this program, and I think that's a valuable trait for any fashion program. Experience trumps all in the fashion industry. Overall, I recommend it to those who wish to pursue the broad spectrum of the industry, and are not just limited to design.
I truly enjoyed my experience at Eastern Michigan University. I was involved with the EMU marching band as a feature twirler. The professors in the program would work with me to grasp the course material. Each professor really made me feel like they wanted me to succeed.
Eastern is a great school. However, the degree program is not well known in the corporate sector, and you need some type of management experience for you ton be considered for the jobs that you qualify for. Know how to navigate financial aid and the campus before you start, because as a new student it can be overwhelming
Eastern was a great school to attend. I loved the atmosphere and the relationships I created while I was there. So much so that I have decided to head back there this fall to begin my masters program. I am excited to have the opportunity to be an Eastern grad not once but twice.
