  • Degree: Fashion
  • Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

"Eastern Michigan University is a small University, but it grants a lot of opportunity for those willing to seek it. Perhaps one would think that a small university would be limited in resources, variety of professors, extracurricular activities, and connections. This is a false belief. EMU is located by other larger institutions, and professors who want to teach more classes come to Eastern. Students pay a smaller tuition bill than the University of Michigan students, but they share the same professors. Also, EMU is located near two of Michigan's largest cities, Detroit and Ann Arbor, so there were many professionals with unique backgrounds who taught in their spare time. While at Eastern I had a professor from India, another from Saudi Arabia, one from Italy, and one who had lived all over the world. All of my education teachers worked in high schools and elementary schools before they were professors, my political science teachers were either researchers, revolutionaries, stock market brokers, and lobbyists. The same professors who were from varying countries with unique backgrounds would also have the opportunity to know their students and their work ethic personally. Professors were able to figure out quickly why a student was not performing well and what they could do to help, how to make class interesting for that particular class, or what extracurricular activities and internships matched the interests and goals. As an education major, Eastern Michigan University made sure that I passed my Education Certification Exams and made sure that I was placed in a school close to where I was living for Student Teaching. EMU also put on an Education job fair with local schools and schools around the nation that included Tennessee, Arizona, Texas, and Florida. Eastern Michigan University is a small school, but it provides great opportunity for anyone who is willing to work and seek assistance from others."

  • Degree: Communications

"The Written Communications program at EMU is staffed with knowledgeable, dedicated professors who give 100% + to their students. The graduate students in the classes I've had towards my bachelor degree have convinced me that continuing for a master's degree would be beneficial and a worthwhile goal. They provide real-world experience through networking with people in the field and include career advising in the required courses. I got so much more out of my course of study than I thought I would when I started the program. I debated doing the certificate program at the local community college instead but I am very glad I didn't. I look forward to learning even more while pursuing a master's degree."

"This particular university is best for commuters. I do not recommend living on or near campus. With business major what I liked most would be the separate area of campus the building was located in."

  • Degree: Engineering Management
  • Graduation Year: 2015
"International Students Beware of this Program. I am an International former Student at this University and wanted to comment about Engineering Management program in this university. University is okay if you take any other course, but if you take Engineering Management you are in big trouble. Only one Asian Instructor will be teaching all courses and he too is crack. He will causing problems to all International students once you enroll in that degree. He threatens all international students and make them register only to his courses ( leaving few whichever is offered and taught by other instructors), and he gives show off in department that he is everything in that Program.You will not get job if you are in this program. I strongly suggest all International students and their parents (if you are reading this) not to apply for this program at least. All have faced the problem, but I opted to write review to let students understand their risk."
