Eastern Michigan University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
prices are outrageous. instructors waste valuable educational time to talk politics and religion time that the students pay for. parking prices are monumental and the parking is terrible you cannot find a spot anytime between 10 am and 1pm. campus is very poorly built especially for handicapped individuals. there are hidden fees like you wouldn't believe. classes are too big. classes get canceled way too often before semester starts. overall if you can avoid this university I would. If I could go back I would have gone to literally any other university and been better off.
While I did enjoy my time at Eastern Michigan University, I feel that I may have been better off attending a different university. The resources are limited compared to other universities. School sports teams suck for the most part and there is pretty low attendance at most of the sporting events. The graduation rate is low and I feel that is something that you want to be mindful of. The plus side is that tuition is pretty low and they do offer scholarships if your grads a decent.
My school is known for its shaping and development of educators. My program also has an endorsement for superintendents. The professors there really care and are committed to seeing you grow as a professional. I currently attend online because of the flexibility it offers me. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone interested in Education.
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.
