Eastern Michigan Game Day Rewards both Athletic and Academic Activities

gameday rewardsThe Holman Success Center and EMU Athletics have partnered to bring a new program to campus - Eastern Michigan Game Day Rewards.  The program is designed to encourage students to adopt academic habits and behaviors that will help them become more effective students and develop their Eagle ID.  The Game Day Rewards Program provides students with an opportunity to earn points by attending both athletic and academically focused activities. As their points accumulate, students will “unlock” prizes.  In addition, vendors and local businesses sponsor challenge weeks where students earn prizes for their weekly point totals.  At the end of the academic year, students with at least a 3.5 GPA will be in the running to win 12 credits of free tuition, free housing on campus, a meal plan, a tablet device, or vouchers to the bookstore.  

Initial response to the program from students and parents has been extremely positive, and the support of all campus offices and prize donors is appreciated.  The HSC web page and social media channels contain regular updates about the progress of Game Day Rewards.
