This school is terrible in both academic andBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is terrible in both academic and social aspects. The students are arrogant and think they are better than everyone else and same goes for the faculty. You are not allowed to be in the opposite gender's room past 11 o'clock at night, and if you are you get a huge fine. There are so many other stupid rules like that and the people in charge take their authority way too seriously. If you're looking for a school where you don't have any fun and learn nothing but pointless information for $40,000 a year, then EMU is for you. If you want to have any kind of fun whatsoever and have a good college experience then don't even think about going here.

EMU is definitely not what people think- noQuite BrightPsychology
EMU is definitely not what people think- no buggies, no bonnets. Yet the people that go can come across as a bit "clique-ish" and closed-minded. If you're the hippie type with a white boy fro, you'll fit in fine. If you wear toms or have dreads, you'll be okay. Otherwise, it's a bit more difficult to fit in with the majority of the population. There are definitely people who think that a social scene is more than a cooking get-together or dutch blitz game, and the fact that JMU is extremely close is good for that. It's also good that one world can be academics (EMU) and the other social (JMU). Nevertheless, the professors are incredibly helpful and care deeply about education. At times, the peer students aren't as inquisitive and seemingly intelligent as I'd hoped- but that's the trend I think these days as practically every person attends college. The higher level courses improve in this aspect. The education itself is fantastic, I'd agree Ivy level. I think the social aspect of the school would improve greatly if a few thousand more students attended and they didn't accept every student that came from a Mennonite high school. The school is lacking a bit in diversity.

The professors are accessible and care about eachQuite BrightCommunications
The professors are accessible and care about each student. The campus is beautiful. The sense of community really stood out to me as a student. I felt part of a family here and when I was going through a hard time, I felt supported by friends and faculty. You don't have to be a Mennonite to come to EMU. The values of community, caring for God's creation, service, and peace are emphasized here. I am glad I chose to come to EMU. I have made life-long friends and gained an education that has helped me in my career.
