Students Anthony Levesque and Collin Clem established EMU’s DECA team in the Fall 2018 semester. The attended the State Conference in February and will go on to compete at the International Conference in April. They hope more students will join them in competing in the coming semester.
The Color of Drums Poetry Celebration, presented by Eastern Michigan University’s Poetry Society on Friday, Oct. 18, made it clear from the opening line that performers were there to speak boldly on what often goes unspoken.
Students walking between classes on Wednesday may have noticed patches of red sand overflowing from the cracks in the sidewalk. These were not the remnants of some poor student’s art project, but part of The Red Sand Project - an ongoing global demonstration aiming raise awareness about human trafficking.
