2017 Tournament of Eagles

by blogemu

The Tournament of Eagles is back! This is a fun competition between campus departments, programs, and entities to answer the question, what is the coolest thing about campus and the surrounding area? We have changed it up a little bit this year. Our bracket is broken down into 4 regions: Campus Life, Ypsilanti, Campus Culture, and Dining Services. Check out the different match-ups below.


To vote, you’ll want to visit the EMU Facebook Page daily. You’ll find the newest match-up pinned to the top of the page for 24 hours. All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite team and your vote will be counted to determine which team moves on to the next round. Our past winners include the Honors College, WEMU 89.1, and Greek Life with back-to-back wins. This year’s winner is up to you! Good luck to all of our teams!



*Teams are only able to win twice before they are retired to the winner’s circle and removed from the tournament.

Live Alive

by blogemu

Live Alive is a clothing brand started by three EMU students, Bryan Miscovich, Marcel Sams, and Kelvin Williams. We started this brand after seeing how much pressure college students are under to attend school so that we may get the job we dread, only to go home and pay bills. This is programming everyone to go through the motions and ignore everything life has to offer.


To us, Live Alive is more than just a brand. It’s a lifestyle. Living alive means to be YOU! Not what the world wants you to be. Take the risks you want to take, go the places you want to go, study what you want to study. Life is out there for the taking; Go after it. Go all in. Life can be altered in the smallest ways but can be summarized with one thing, Live Alive.


Please check us out on social media at Live Alive Apparel, and visit our website to see all that we have to offer. Pick up some gear to show the world that you Live Alive!

PEGN Courses at Shanty Creek – An Alternative to Winter Break!

by blogemu

Are you looking for an alternative to the traditional college winter break? Do you want to experience the outdoors and be active in beautiful northern Michigan? How would you like to learn a new winter activity? You can do all of this AND receive credit that will help fulfill your graduation requirements here at EMU. Our PEGN (physical activity courses) are a fantastic way to do all of this in just one week! Both Beginning Snow Skiing and Snowboarding are available for you to take during Winter Break.


Spend a week in Bellaire, Michigan at Shanty Creek Resorts while earning graduation credits. Join more than 200 other EMU students to study in a small group setting while adding to your college experience and enjoying recreation in beautiful Northern Michigan. 2017 Winter Break courses run from Sunday, February 19 to Friday, February 24 unless otherwise noted.  


There are two PEGN courses that will be offered during the week. PEGN 146 Beginning Snow Skiing will cover the basics and fundamentals of skiing. If skiing is not your thing, try PEGN 277 Snowboarding. Don’t worry about your skill level! Both of these classes are for various abilities and you can have a great experience no matter how much experience you have with these activities. Each of these classes is 1 credit and satisfy the Learning Beyond the Classroom graduation requirement under the focus of Self and Well-Being. Need equipment, lodging, or transportation? No problem! EMU and Shanty Creek can help you with all of your needs. Grab a group of friends (or come alone and meet new people – roommates are available if needed too!) and experience a fun alternative to winter break while earning credits at the same time!
