EMU is situated in an area known for crime, yet it is surrounded by some of the best educational institutions in the state: the University of Michigan, Washtenaw Community College (an outstanding community college), and Wayne State University. Because of this, you have a gluttony of resources for any conceivable program. Their admissions department doesn't always seem entirely professional and on top of things. The courses they offer are strong, diverse, and truly relate to the practical side of your field. While U of M teaches theory and hands out degrees that are difficult to find a job with unless you go on to get a master's, EMU trains you for a career and for a lot less money. I should know -- I've gone to both!

One of great aspects about the program is that they offer night classes and can work while going through the program. EMU is very affordable and the professors in the counseling program are very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise.

This program works around my busy schedule and provides me with current research and material that will benefit me in the real world. It is very much making me feel comfortable going out into the world to meet with clients one day.

The faculty and classes are amazing and exactly what I was looking for. Campus is very secure but some of the immediate areas outside campus have violence and crime problems.
