Honestly, it is a great school. I feel that this school makes me honestly work for the scholarship that I am working towards. There are some things that need to improve in this university, but that can be said about all schools because there is no such thing as a perfect school.
Hate that school! I encourage anyone thinking of going there to think twice. The only good thing about the school was it is a safe campus and very small class sizes. Some of the professors are down right hateful and spiteful. I actually can not believe i stayed at this school for the amount of time that I did. Some of my other classmates also hated it. This place is definitely a waste of time and money. I completely regret this waste of time. The only good thing I got of this experience was a life long friend.
EMU gives you the opportunity to be a big fish in a little pond. Being a smaller school, EMU allows for and encourages leadership positions even of first and second years on campus. This enables you to foster close relationships with professors and gather valuable hands on experience. Your education and experience coupled with the close mentorship of professors connects you to further academic and professional options.
I really like the students and teachers here. It's a nice and cozy environment we coexist in. Getting along with my fellow students is easy as most everyone is pretty laid back. The teachers are approachable, even via online after hours. The surrounding city, Harrisonburg, offers many amenities, and the surrounding counties offer a wide variety of outdoor activities. I especially like hiking on the mountain trails.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Eastern Mennonite University is 61%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would give an advice for myself, do every school work ahead. Starting from application, easays, and decide early which school I want to go and why I want to go that specific school, in addtion of mind readiness. Other than this I will tell my self to make sure that i can affored that school financially.
EMU is a small Christian college that thrives on welcoming people into their community.
My classmates are nice but unique in their own ways.
The small class sizes allow students and professors to actually get to know eachother. Professors are very willing to help students both academically and in other areas they may be stuggling with. Professors offer students many opportunties to join their research projects. There is also a strong professor led study abroad program that allows students to become involved in another culture rather than just being tourists.
This school is perfect for a community oriented person.
EMU is probably best known for their Cross-Cultural Study programs. I went to the Middle East for a semester for mine. The Cross Cultural program is a little different from most study abroad programs because it emphasizes full submersion into the culture. I loved with a Palestinian family for 3 weeks, then we stayed on kibbutzes in Israel. It is a very wholistic and enriching experience. You get a true sense of the culture and an experienced world traveler by the end of the trip. You even get a week to go anywhere on your own in that region!
I wish that I had looked more into the art program, or asked to sit in on a few studio classes.
Community! Eastern Mennonite is all about the community. We are a big enough school that not everything knows everyone but small enough that we can have game nights, watch movies together and build a friendly community within the student body. It's definitly been something I like and value about my school.
For me, the only thing would be distance. Anything worse and I would not be going there, right?
Th emost frustrating thing would be the stereotypes about my school even in Harrisonburg. Most are untrue and people aren't open to the possibility that maybe their perceptions are wrong.
Any person can attend EMU, but if you want your life to change for the good then this is the place of growth-Eastern Mennonite University, where you can be You!
