Senior Class Gift - Give to your alma mater 

Each year, the senior class chooses a fundraising project that truly represents their class, and their collective experience at EMU. The goal is to celebrate and memorialize that experience by making a lasting gift to the campus community that serves a need that is meaningful to you as unique people who were here at a unique time. Fundraising will begin at Grad Center (suggested donation $20.22). Give your gift to the Senior Class here.

Senior Celebration - Plan to attend the Senior Celebration on Thursday, May 5, 6 p.m. in Martin Chapel, Seminary. 


The senior celebration is a tradition at EMU for all undergraduate seniors. This semi-formal banquet is planned by the class officers and sponsored by the EMU Parent Council members and the Alumni Engagement office. This semi-formal affair will be a great time to reminisce, spend time together and celebrate your graduation from EMU.

A special program will follow dinner featuring your classmates. RSVP by Friday, April 29.
