LBC Essay Winners

How did YOU gain your "Learning Beyond the Classroom" experience?

  • Internship?
  • LBCStudent organization leadership?
  • Participation in an EMU theater or musical production?
  • Independent research?
  • Any one of the dozens of options?

Students submitted essays telling us their stories and the results were amazing! 

Student organizations, faculty, staff, and the General Education department are constantly working to bring you interesting and exciting opportunities to gain experiences outside the classroom – experiences that help you build your character AND your résumé or C.V.

The LBC Essay Contest winners were showcased at EMU's Undergraduate Symposium on March 27, 2015, in a poster display for all those attending to view.

We received many wonderful essays and were quite pleasantly surprised by the number of entries. Be sure to watch for our next contest opportunity!
