The Office of Family Programs at Eastern recognizes the integral role families play in student success, and provides support, resources and engagement opportunities to families of EMU students.
There are a number of ways our office can help you 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:
This year, First Three will be an adapted three week virtual model spread out from August 17 to September 4 with 2 -3 events offerings daily Monday - Friday.
In light of COVID-19, this year's Family Weekend will take place as a collection of self-guided opportunities to engage with the EMU community. This year's Weekend will be non-ticketed. More information about the schedule and logistics of this event will be posted on the Family Weekend page.
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.
