The Year in Stories
The year 2019 started with the unveiling of renovated Strong Hall and finished with a flourish of nearly $12 million in major gifts from GameAbove. In between, the year was packed with stories about innovative programs, new hires, and compelling alumni. So many of these stories resonated with our audience. Whether it was professor Samir Tout and his EMU students working to thwart cyber hackers in the auto industry, or alumnus and former Olympian Jamie Nieto’s inspiring recovery from paralysis, or news of a community-service based debt forgiveness program, readers came to our website in droves.
What follows is a list of the most-read stories of 2019 from both EMU Today and Eastern Magazine. They are listed in chronological order, with the most recently published story at the top. We hope you enjoy a look back at the most viewed stories of 2019.
