Feel the Support of a Community
At EMU, student services like CoachLink pair undergrads with graduate student mentors who help you get rooted and make choices that are right for you as you adjust to life away from home. Campus pastors work with student leaders (ministry and pastoral assistants) so each residence hall builds a community within.
Develop Life-Long Skills
Student-athletes say their experience as a Royal is life-shaping. EMU coaches and athletic staff feel their job is a calling, and keep a focus on team-building and Christian character on and off the court. Athletes not only play together, they learn together and pray together. Your time as an NCAA D-III athlete will help you develop life-long leadership skills.
Hallmates in the dorms become life-long friends and find themselves called to leadership, sharing their gifts during weekly chapels or Bible studies, coordinating campus activities, and more. Faculty are mentors who walk with you in your professional career.
