Describe your favorite campus traditions.


It's best known for its Peace and Justice program, as one of the graduates of the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, Leymah Gbowee, recently won the Nobel Prize.


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 could say my school is best known for its Nursing program or its diversity or for producing great medical school candidates, and that would be correct.

However, above all, I believe my school is best known for the character traits and work ethics they instill in the hearts of their students beyond but along side academics.
