Super Tuesday voters at the EMU Honors College reveal who they voted for. Dr. Beth Henschen of the EMU Political Science Department weighs in on why Biden won, and why she believes Sanders is the wrong choice for those who want to beat President Trump in the upcoming election. The next round of primary elections will continue this Tuesday, March 17 in Arizona, Illinois, Florida, and Ohio. The presidential election is set for Nov. 3.
Liz Hornyak: Today’s news will largely be updates on the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re limiting your news consumption on the subject, stay tuned for an extra episode on the primary elections. That was produced by our editor Ronia-Isabel Cabansag and that’s dropping later today. Campus may be closed through March 31, but the Echo will continue to provide you the latest news as always.

Ronia-Isabel Cabansag: Welcome back to campus! This is Ronia sitting in for Liz today. On today’s episode we’re bringing you updates on both basketball teams, news about a celebration for new EMU staff and faculty, as well as dates and times for this month’s Wellness Woof. I'm your host Ronia-Isabel Cabansag, and you’re listening to the Eastern Echo Podcast.
A line of students formed in front of Jennifer Harding, a former drug addict and prisoner at the Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility. Each one lauded her writing, thanked her for sharing her story and a few even gave her a hug.
Ronia-Isabel Cabansag: I don't know about you, but when I started college, I felt ready. New friends, new professors, new classes, new schedule – I thought I was ready for all of it. And I was right, I was pretty ready for all those things, but I wasn’t ready for everything else. I balanced school okay, but I wasn’t balancing sleep, meals, or exercise. The REC was a really overwhelming place to be, and “freshman fifteen” became very real.
Ronia-Isabel Cabansag: Hey Eagles, Ronia here. I just wanted to jump in before your news briefing to announce that we’ll be releasing a bonus episode tomorrow concerning the Board of Regents meeting that was held last week. If you don’t know, the Regents discuss all sorts of things that are relevant to you – new programs of study that get approved, changes in tuition rates, news on the new health center, concern about a shortage at Swoop’s Pantry – lots of stuff. That episode was put together by our editor-in-chief here at the Echo, Mr. Andrew Lenzo, and guys, this man is good. So, we hope you tune in to that as well, but for now, here’s your Monday news briefing from our new regular host, Liz Hornyak.
Ronia-Isabel Cabansag: In this week’s news overview, EMU Theatre has announced big plans for their December production. In local news, Ypsi city council has voiced their decision on recreational marijuana establishments, and EMU may be seeing an influx of graduate students in the coming semester. We’ll also be announcing performance times for EMU Theatre’s production of Cabaret.
Ronia-Isabel Cabansag: Homecoming celebrations are over and stress is in the air. Maybe you’ve skipped a class, a meal or several hours of sleep. Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, music ed. or pre-med, everyone can feel it because the last six weeks have been leading up to this very moment. Midterm season. Schoolwork and stress are unavoidable but The Echo team is here to remind you to take care of yourself this month.
In this week’s news overview, we’re bringing you updates on the Pease Auditorium Lot carjacking, a preview of Student Government’s upcoming physical and mental wellness programming, and important news about the Business and Finance Committee budget. Following our news briefing is your guide to Eastern’s 99th Annual Homecoming Week Festivities.

Hundreds of students from several Detroit and Metro-Detroit high schools were invited to Eastern Michigan University for the 11th annual César Chávez Day of Celebration on Wednesday, March 20.
Early last month, junior Anthony Levesque and first-year student Collin Clem represented EMU’s newly established Collegiate DECA Team at the State Career Development Conference in Detroit.
This 18th annual instance of the celebration consisted of student-written poems presented in the form of a series of skits. Each scene pertained to a different social justice issue. The night also featured guest performances from the EMU Gospel Choir, a dance performance from Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and an African drum group. The event, held as part of the university’s weeklong celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, was highly anticipated by both audience members and performers alike.
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.
