“A top Iranian leader spoke in my ‘Exploring Conflict and Peace’ class when I was a first-year! We asked so many questions. It helped me visualize those affected by the American-Iran conflict. It was humbling and enlightening.”
We snapped this photo of Janelle, a 2011 peacebuilding graduate, during a passionate discussion on sustainability on campus. She was a founding member of the Creation Care Council, student government officer, chapel leader, and more. She now works for Project Peacemakers.
A Christian Campus and Community
Grow in your faith
Discover a Christian campus like no other – rooted in the Mennonite values of peacemaking, community, and service. Feed your mind and spirit with hands-on experiences and unique programs that will help you learn how you might live out your faith day to day.
Chapels throughout the week, Sunday evening celebrations, worship through music, Bible studies in residence halls, prayer partners willing to support you throughout your year… these are some of the ways undergraduate students connect to Christ on campus.
Not Mennonite? About half of the undergraduate student body is Mennonite. Dozens of other denominations and faith traditions, and more than 30 nationalities, are all part of the EMU family. Other students enjoy being part of a network of adult learners who feel drawn to ethical service and leadership.
Meet others who share your values
Come be challenged to think about how your walk with Jesus connects with choices you make every day… from the food you eat, to the way you interact with all of God’s people and the vocational role you pursue.
EMU’s core values are evident on campus, in classroom and coffeehouse conversations, during chapel services, and even during down time in the dorms. Sustainability, service to others, and faith in action are central to many conversations.
Join a caring community
A caring community with common values and goals is here to support you. Professors are mentors who walk with you through your learning experience and into your chosen vocation.
First-year students are part of a “transitions” group, which meets multiple times each week to support each other and process the new experiences of college life.
An innovative new life coaching program, called Coachlink, offers one-on-one personalized coaching and mentoring to support you in college life.
Come visit EMU and join our community of faith. Learn more about Mennonites, sustainability and the EMU community, our well-known study abroad in other cultures, and everything else that makes EMU a Christian university like no other.
