Welcome, International Students!
At EMU you’ll find a friendly campus and a welcoming community happy to meet you, learn about your culture and faith, and provide a safe and friendly connection to life in a new country.
How we help you
From the moment you arrive in the United States, through the transition to life away from home, our campus community provides support as you adjust to life in another culture. The majority of EMU faculty have lived and worked internationally long-term. We know what it is like to adapt to a new culture, climate and environment.
