Eastern Michigan University Reviews
I enjoyed my time at EMU, the program I was in did prepare me to be a teacher, but there weren't many jobs upon graduating. The campus is pretty, most of the teachers I had were great and most of the buildings look/are brand new. The library and student center were a real draw, but I didn't use them as much as I could. The campus is mainly safe, but like anywhere, keeps your eyes open.
I found inconsistent class quality. Online classes were especially not worth while. The campus is nice, and I liked the fact that the student body was diverse in race and life experience (age). I didn't sense any school pride, with many students being part of the wolverine culture just 15 minutes away. A quality teaching program.
I enjoyed my time at EMU. The school has an amazing value to it. For those who cannot afford a larger school and still want to get a Bachelors of Science this may be a good route for you. I graduated from EMU with a BSMET and I work along side with other professionals who have graduated from MIT, GW, and pretty much every Big Ten engineering school. So In my opinion, it is not so much as where you graduate from as it is how you apply yourself in school, and how much you get out of the education experience.
I learned more about myself and my area of study in these two years than ever before. I would highly recommend.
A great experience, this program allowed me to put much of the theory we learned about into practice.
I enjoyed my time at Eastern. I was able to join a club team and work very close with the Athletes everyday. The teachers cared about the students and wanted them to succeed in the field they were in. I landed a great job out of college and graduating from Eastern Michigan helped this happen.
The Aviation program at Eastern Michigan University is for extremely aviation passionate people. If you live, breathe, and sleep aviation, then this program is for you. Fly your first day and be surrounded by enthusiasts. The university and aviation department also help students gain employment.
I began attending Eastern Michigan University in 2010, as a single parent, transfer, part-time student. The institution from where I transferred, unfortunately, did not provide the flexibility I now needed as a non-traditional older student. Being a single parent and maintaining a full-time and part-time job requires that I have a variety of options to attend class, including evening classes as well as online classes, while still providing high quality education. I was immediately happy to find this to be the case at EMU. Not only are each of my instructors extremely accomplished, they're incredibly accessible and willing to help you succeed. I could not be happier as a student at Eastern Michigan University!
Concerning the Masters of Healthcare Administration (MHA) Program at Eastern Michigan University, let me please advise all considering this area of study at EMU to first do your homework! For example, other colleges offering this same program, provide employment guidance/counseling specifically towards Healthcare Administration, however the EMU program does not offer nothing related to job/career direction. Another negative concern that my fellow students and I had throughout the program was with the program advisor. This person (who holds a PhD mind you) informed us that she preferred to communicate via email regarding all of our class issues. We did email her about our educational/class matters, however it usually took her several days to respond back. Once, I had asked her about meeting in person for assistance with establishing educational and employment goals, however she told me to email her my questions (I'm not sure that an administrator/advisor should be that distant from the students). One more crucial concern that I have about this program is that it does not include internships. I, believe that internships provide a great way to obtain real-world experiences, which of course provides better employment opportunities. However, keep in mind that other schools have at least two mandatory internships included in their program. Some of these programs also schedule times when their former students return to meet/talk with current students about their employment situations. It has been two years since I graduated and I still lack relevant employment (35k in loan debt). I wish that someone would have advised me to take some time and compare the structure/offerings that other schools offer before I attended EMU!
I love that I decided to attend Eastern. It is such a great school, with friendly and helpful staff. It's very evident that all the faculty and professors want you to do well and succeed.
The coursework wasn't overwhelming or too complicated to understand. The online format and course shell is very self-explanitory and they have many tools and places you can go with any questions or concerns you may have.
All of my classmates were so nice and willing to help and answer any questions that I had. I've had nothing but positive and great interaction with my professors as well. I'd say my overall experience was a good one and I look forward to taking more online classes at Eastern in the future.
