YPSILANTI - Choosing a college can be one of the most important decisions in a student's life. Why not take that first step by attending Eastern Michigan University's Explore Eastern Open House, Saturday, March 23?

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Eastern's Student Center, 900 Oakwood Dr. in Ypsilanti. All interested students are welcome to bring family members and friends. Students attending Explore Eastern can apply for admission free of charge - $35 savings.

The Open House is a great way for high school and transfer students to learn about EMU and how an Eastern education can create a path to the future.  During the event, you'll get a true feeling about EMU and what sets us apart from other schools - our small-campus feel with large-school resources.

Campus tours, led by a current EMU student, will be offered at 9 a.m., 11:25 a.m. and 12:55 p.m., which start at the Student Center.  While on the tour, the guide will be available for questions. You'll see a classroom building; the Bruce T. Halle Library; the Olds-Robb Recreation and Intramural Building; and a residence hall room.

While at the EMU Student Center, a variety of information will be available, including:

  • EMU faculty who will be available to talk about specific majors and academic programs.
  • Deans from each of Eastern's five Colleges - Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; and Technology - will give a brief presentation about their available programs.
  • EMU staff from housing; dining services; career services; leadership and involvement; financial aid; and scholarships will be on site to discuss their areas.

Parking for Explore Eastern is free in the Student Center lot off Oakwood Drive. Reserve your spot today for the next Explore Eastern Open House or call 800- GO-TO-EMU
