Eastern Michigan Game Day Rewards both athletic and academic activities

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

This program will be rolled out to all students this year. Initial response from students and parents has been extremely positive. Thank you to all of the areas on campus who have stepped up to sponsor the grand prizes - Enrollment Management, Residence Life, and the Campus Bookstore. There will be informational meetings on the program for faculty and staff in September to share additional details on Game Day Rewards as well as on general changes taking place in the Holman Success Center; information on the meetings will be forthcoming.
