Eastern Michigan University recognizes the integral role families play in student success.
There are a number of ways you can engage in your student's experience. Start by attending Family Weekend and experiencing a slice of EMU life along with your student.
In response to COVID-19, our events are subject to change. Stay informed:
EMU Connect, formerly known as First Three, will be an adapted virtual model with limited in-person elements. Visit the Orientation website to view the full EMU Connect schedule.
Families will be able to explore both our campus and the greater Ypsilanti community during their visit.
Your student may be living miles from home as they attend classes at Eastern, but you can still send a "care package" any time—and students love receiving them!
Each residence hall and apartment provides incoming and outgoing mail service for its residents. U.S. mail is distributed to student mailboxes Monday through Saturday. Special items like flowers, packages and flyers may be delivered to the residence hall’s front desk.
To ensure prompt delivery, address letters and packages with the following information:
Room # Building Name
Ypsilanti, MI 48197
Please do not include “Eastern Michigan University” in the mailing address. Doing so will route the item to a general campus mailroom and delay delivery.
