Promoting your Student Org:
We can help market your student organization's events via our social media. All you have to do is send an email including any relevant information to your event (When? Where? What for?) or message any of our social media channels. After receiving the message, your event will be briefly reviewed and then posted!
Free Legal Services:
EMU Student Government provides legal services to EMU Students FREE of charge. You can sign up for a time to meet our attorney Tracy Thomas .
The meeting room is 104 Student Center at the time you book. Please note: There is a $35 charge for a no call no show with the attorney, so please keep that in mind when scheduling appointments.
