Rachel Burford WHITE LAKE, MISENIOR; SOCIAL WORK Favorite EMU Moment: Seeing Mars through the Sherzer telescope. Why I Chose EMU: I immediately felt at home. It’s the perfect size with caring faculty, compassionate staff and dollar ice skating on the pond to boot! What every new EMU student should know: College is scary, but you can do it. Everything may be big and new to start but it will shrink to the perfect size when you give it a chance.
