After the week is over?

Campuses may start to run together in your mind. You’ll ask yourself, which one had the cool fountain on the quad? What did the dorms look like? Where did I have the most fun?

Your favorites will stand out, though, and we think EMU will be one of them! So be in touch – we’re ready to answer your questions and help you apply for admission !

About CICV

EMU is among the nearly 30 schools participating in the annual Virginia Private College Week, sponsored by the Virginia College Savings Plan. Students who visit three Virginia private colleges during the designated week will receive application fee waivers redeemable at any three of the 26 participating private colleges in the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia, which promotes non-profit, independent colleges in Virginia and was instrumental in starting the state’s TAG program that offers Virginia residents up to over $3,000 in grant money – automatically! – for four years.
