Newsweek names EMU one of "most interesting schools"
YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University has been dubbed one of the 367 most interesting schools by Kaplan’s College Resource Guide, which is part of Newsweek’s “America’s Hottest Colleges 2006.”
EMU is the only school in the Mid American Conference in Michigan to make the list and one of only four public institutions to be mentioned. The other public schools are Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Michigan Technological and Ferris State.
“We are honored by this designation,” said Dr. John Fallon, president of EMU. “I think that one of the things that makes EMU such an interesting place is its diversity. College should be a place where you not only learn about the world around you, but also about the perspectives of the people beside you.”
According to Kaplan, “there are many things that can make a school interesting – be it academic strengths, student body, or specialty programs.”
This is the second such designation for EMU in 2006. The Princeton Review recently named Eastern Michigan one of the “Best Midwestern Colleges” for the third straight year.
Eastern Michigan University is a public, comprehensive university that offers programs in the arts, sciences and professions. EMU prepares students with the intellectual skills and practical experiences to succeed in their careers and lives, and to be better citizens.
