In his 25 seasons as men’s head coach, Linn has guided the Eagles to 21 Mid-American Conference Championships, including eight in a row from 1988-1996. EMU finished as conference runner-up during the other four seasons of Linn’s guidance.

This past season, the men’s team won the MAC Championship meet in Carbondale, Illinois. Jacob Hanson was named the 2012 Most Outstanding Swimmer for the third consecutive season. In addition, Hanson was also named an All-American for the second consecutive season. He currently holds the 100-backstroke, 200-backstroke and 200 individual medley MAC records.

Former EMU swimmers Kevin Doak and Derick Roe were both in action during the summer of 2008 at the U.S. Olympic qualifying meet. On the women’s side, Linn took over for the 2004-05 season and has led the Eagles to a 60-31 mark in nine seasons.

The Eagles placed five of the top seven divers on the one-meter board and claimed four of the top six places from the three-meter. On the men’s side, they placed three divers in the top five on the three-meter board and three of the top seven spots on the one-meter. Smith was named MAC Coach of the Year at both the men’s and women’s championship meets. Prior to Eastern Michigan, Smith was the coach at Oakland University during the 1999-2000 season where he coached the Mid-Continent Conference Diver of the Year and qualified three divers for the Division I Zone meet.

9 Eastern Michigan University Women’s Swimming Two-time Mid-American Conference Champions


2013-14 EMU Men’s Swimming & Diving Preview After being picked first in the Mid-American Conference preseason poll, the men’s swimming and diving team will depart on the road to a hopeful three-peat for the 2013-14 campaign. Last season, the Eagles won their 31st MAC title in school history after compiling 772 points, just six ahead of second-place finisher Missouri State. Only adding to their illustrious history is the fact that the Green and White is currently riding a 63-MAC dual win streak. The Eagles lost eight team members to graduation from last season, including All-American and MAC Outstanding Swimmer of the Year Jacob Hanson and MAC Outstanding Diver of the Year Jeffrey Craig.

Eastern Michigan University

“I believe we have a great group of new faces and some real leadership in the upperclassmen,” said Head Coach Peter Linn. “That said, we graduated close to 200 championship points, and this makes returning to the top of the podium a terrific challenge for the team.”

10

The squad welcomes 18 fresh faces, all hoping to make an impact in their first year in the water for the Eagles. “The freshman class is one of the strongest and deepest that we have ever brought in. Their success will be integral to the overall success of the program,” commented Coach Linn. SPRINT/MIDDLE DISTANCE FREESTYLE All sprinters who competed in the 2013 MAC Championships will be returning to the squad. Seniors Dexter Foos and Gus Everson along with junior Oded Ivry made it to the final rounds of the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle events in Carbondale, Ill. Junior Brian Moore put in a record-breaking performance in the 200-yard freestyle. Ten newcomers are expected to be able to make an impact in the deep sprinting field, including Moore’s younger brother Kevin Moore. “We also have swimmers like sophomore Brad Lebling ready to step up along with freshman Erik Brinkoff. I think sophomore Erik Gissen will help us out in several

of the short freestyle events as well.” DISTANCE The Eagles also return all 2013 MAC competitors in the distance events. Moore, who clinched a third-place finish in the 500-yard freestyle, along with junior Franco Petrone and sophomore Andrew Henry, who touched in within .2 seconds of each other to claim third and fourth-place finishes in the 1,650-yard freestyle, are expected to turn out equally strong campaigns in the upcoming year. Joining the trio are junior Sean Tento and sophomore Krzysztof Gilski, along with incoming freshman Kyle Lichtenberg. BACKSTROKE Despite the loss of Hanson, who had pool and meet record-breaking p e r f o r m a n ce s in the 100- and 200-yard backstroke at the MAC Championships, Gissen showed consistently strong ef for ts throughout his rookie campaign and claimed fifthplace finishes in both the 100- and 200-yard backstrokes in Carbondale. Rounding out the backstrokers are sophomore Blake Howe and freshmen Cole Bateman and Chris Cutter. BREASTSTROKE Though former senior Michael Swain had been dominating competition in breaststroke, junior Mike Fisher rose to the occasion at the MAC Championships to take both the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke titles, setting both pool and meet records. Fellow classmate Grant Schwarz also appeared for the Green and White in the meet and is expected to contribute to the upcoming season as well. “We have a lot of freshman depth in this event with Chris Buzard, Connor Finnigan, and Kyle Aerne. Sophomore Chris Hodges had a great summer and he and Kyle have both swum times that would score well at the conference level.”

BUTTERFLY Gilski showed his strengths not only in the distance freestyle events, but also had an impressive freshman campaign competing in butterfly. The Dywity, Poland native claimed the winning time for the 200-yard butterfly and finished fourth in the 100-yard butterfly at the MAC Championships. Senior Tom Coates should make an impact for his final season as an Eagle, as he claimed fourth place in the 200-yard butterfly in the conference meet.

According to Coach Linn, “the team is primed to take their relay swimming to a new level.”

“I feel Miles MacDonald is ready to step up after his shoulder surgery last season along with fellow sophomore Howe in the 100-yard butterfly, while we have new additions in Aaron Moyer, Axel Schmitter-Sanchez, and Martin Rzyski (Olsztyn, Poland-Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace #4), who all look like they can provide strength and depth in the 200-yard butterfly.”

UPCOMING MEETS The Green and White will open up their first week of competition against Big Ten Conference member Northwestern University, Friday, Oct. 18 in Evanston, Ill. Last year, the Eagles hosted the Wildcats at Jones Natatorium and ended the dual meet with a win, accumulating 157 points over Northwestern’s 141.

INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY The two top swimmers for the Eagles in the individual medley were Hanson and Swain, who set pool and meet records in the 200- and 400-yard IM, respectively. Fisher, Henry, and Tento also proved to be competitors at the event and will be joined by senior Aaron Lawson and freshmen Cutter and Ethan McNally.

Following a three-week break, the squad will host Oakland in the first home meet of the season. Though EMU holds a 22-7 advantage all-time over the Golden Grizzlies, it will be looking to snap a two-meet losing streak dating back to 2010. Jones Natatorium will also be the site of the EMU Invitational, Saturday, Dec. 7, as well as dual meets against Michigan State, Buffalo, Wayne State, Ohio State, and Ball State.

RELAYS EMU’s perenially formidable relay teams claimed three third-place finishes and one second-place finish in 2013. The loss of Hanson and Swain definitely leaves big fins to fill, but the majority of the relay team’s swimmers from the MAC Championships will return for the upcoming season. Foos, Gilski, Gissen, Henry, Ivry, and Moore should be the nuclei of this year’s relays.

DIVING With the departure of top divers Craig and Andrew Saunders, the diving team has the opportunity to shine the spotlight on some of its other athletes. The squad returns three juniors in Dakoda Johnson, Sage Stephens, and Matt Ventura. Joining the upperclassmen will be freshmen Alex Chan, and Dan Gironza.

The Eagles will travel to the Buckeye State in February to dual with Miami in Oxford, Feb. 1, 2014 before competing in the Ohio State Invitational, Feb. 8-9. The Green and White will then take nearly a month off in preparation for the 2014 MAC Championships, Mar. 6-8, in Buffalo, N.Y.

2013-14 EMU Women’s Swimming & Diving Preview Eastern Michigan University’s women’s swimming and diving team is ready to kick off a fresh season for its 2013-14 campaign. The Eagles, who were picked to place sixth in the Mid-American Conference, face a tough slate in preparation for the 2014 MAC Championships. The Green and White lost seven seniors from the 2012-13 squad, including All-American Diver Kelly Hendricks and the MAC Outstanding Senior Award winner Briana Emig. “This year’s squad looks to improve on last year’s fourth-place finish in the most competitive conference in the country from top to bottom. The team has many new faces and looks to be more balanced between events compared to the last few seasons,” said Head Coach Peter Linn. Coach Linn, now in his 10th season at the helm of the women’s squad, has brought in 11 recruits to don the green and white for the upcoming campaign.

Eastern Michigan University

“We have a class where freshmen will contribute across the board in every event. They will play a critical role in building on last season’s success.” SPRINT/MIDDLE DISTANCE FREESTYLE The Eagles will return the majority of their sprinters from last season. Junior Sara Ghaffari and sophomores Becca Detro and Mary Kate MacLean are on track to lead the Eagle sprinters after turning out appearances throughout the 2012-13 season and representing the squad at the 2013 MAC Championships.

“The women should get added help in these events from freshmen Makenzie Garringer and Sierra Wagner; in addition Grace Van Allen looks to be a big help in the 200-yard freestyle.” DISTANCE With the loss of one of the best freestyle distance swimmers in EMU history, the Green and White has a substantial task in replacing Emig. Sophomore Audra Burtch is the lone returning distance specialist, and she is well on her way to fulfilling the challenge set before her, as her freshman campaign was capped with a fourth-place finish in the 1,650-yard freestyle and a finals appearance in the 500-yard freestyle at last year’s MAC championship in Buffalo. Joining Burtch will be freshmen Allison Murslack (Gibsonia, Pa.Pine-Richland) and Van Allen. BACKSTROKE During the 2013 MAC Championships, freestyle sprinters MacLean and classmate Taylor Straub joined former senior Helena Tolic to compete in the backstroke events. Juniors Amanda Paliska and Jessie Godlewski were mainstays of the 200-yard backstroke in dual meets and will welcome the help from newcomers Abby Aumiller, Alexis Mitcheltree, and Haley Shaw. BREASTSTROKE Junior Monica Dorszewski and sophomore Irene Lopez Llorente return after making finals-worthy appearances in the MAC Championships. The new faces in the event will be significant with Sarah Cameron, Emily Wimmer, and Genna Worthley all looking to make an impact during their rookie campaigns.

2013-14 EMU Women’s Swimming & Diving Preview

bUTTERFLY The deepest field for the 2013-14 Eagles, All-MAC selections senior Jackie Swartz and Godlewski, along with senior Meghan Richardson, will lead the way for the Green and White. “These swimmers have been real point generators at every level as well as team leaders. The events will only get stronger with Ghaffari in the 100-yard butterfly, sophomores Adele Schulz and Clarice Daniel in the 200-yard butterfly, and newcomers Garringer and Carly Jackson contributing significantly in their first seasons.” INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY Swartz and Godlewski are also expected to contribute substantially for the Eagles in the individual medley events. Both turned out final round appearances in Buffalo. Worthley and Shaw should prove to be vital contributers with Burtch helping out in the 400-yard IM. RELAYS Godlewski, MacLean, and Swartz return as the only members of the squad to have competed in last year’s MAC Championships. With the departure of Tolic, Emig, Wesley Blassneck, and Lauren Kalinosky, there are numerous spots open in both the medley and freestyle relays. The Eagles will look to replace Tolic and Kalinosky in the backstroke and breaststroke legs of the medley relays and hope to have competitive showings in the upcoming season for all relay teams. DIVING The diving team will remain largely the same from the previous season, as redshirt-senior Danielle Hulvey hopes to repeat her success at the MAC and NCAA levels. All members of the squad are returning Ealges, as redshirt-junior Melynee Saya, juniors Lauren Dark and Karly Taylor, and sophomore Hannah Cochran all look to make a splash for the 2013-14 campaign. UPCOMING MEETS The squad travels to Evanston, Ill. on Friday, Oct. 18 to take on the Fighting Illini of the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampagne and host team the Northwestern University Wildcats. The Eagles have faced both teams only once in the hsitory of EMU swimming, falling to Illinois during the 1986-87 season and to Northwestern during the 2001-02 campaign.

The Green and White will then host teams from the Buckeye State over the following two weeks for back-to-back MAC dual meets, taking on the Bowling Green Falcons, Saturday, Oct. 26 and Akron University, Saturday, Nov. 2. The Eagles have not dropped a dual meet to BGSU since the 1996-97 season, when they fell 97-146. They have had similar success against the Zips, boasting a 12-0 advantage since they started competing with Akron in 1998. Continuing their homestead, the team will then host in-state rival Oakland University. The Golden Grizzlies hold a slight 16-15 advantage over the Eagles, but EMU hopes to knot the record by winning their fourth-consecutive dual meet over Oakland. Conference competition will continue the next week, Nov. 16, when the Eagles head to take on the University of Toledo. Over the following months, Jones Natatorium will be the host site for the EMU Invitational, Dec. 6-7, along with dual meets against Buffalo, Michigan State, Wayne State, Ohio State, and Ball State. February will be a month of strong competition for the Eagles, as they take on league favorite Miami, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 in Oxford, Ohio. The Green and White will then make the trek down to Columbus, Ohio for the Ohio State Invitational, Feb. 8-9. Wrapping up the month will be the start of the MAC Championships, which will run Feb. 27-Mar. 1, 2014 in Geneva, Ohio.

Mid-American Conference

Eastern Michigan University

Providing leadership in education and diversity, the Mid-American Conference

44

moves into its 67th year of service to the student-athlete. Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only ten football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to seven its number of neutral site post season events – football (Ford Field, Detroit), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland), softball (Firestone Stadium, Akron) and baseball (All Pro Freight Stadium, Avon, Ohio). In addition, the SPIRE facility will also serve as the site for the 2014 women’s swimming & diving championship and 2015 men’s swimming & diving championship. In 2012, the MAC set a conference record with seven teams receiving a bowl invitation, including the first ever BCS Bowl invitation with Northern Illinois playing in the Discover Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, following a thrilling 44-37 double overtime win over Kent State in the 2012 Marathon MAC Football Championship game. The seven MAC programs that were extended bowl invitations included: Toledo (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl); Ball State (Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg); Central Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl); Bowling Green (Military Bowl); Ohio (Advocare V100 Independence Bowl); Northern Illinois (Discover Orange Bowl) and Kent State (GoDaddy.com Bowl). The 2012 season witnessed four football programs ranked in the top 25 of national polls – Northern Illinois, Kent State, Toledo and Ohio—as the BCS Standings had two MAC programs in the Top 25 at the end of the regular season with No. 15 Northern Illinois and No. 25 Kent State. The MAC also set a conference record for the most wins against FBS opponents with 16 victories. MAC programs were 4-4 against the Big East Conference, including wins over Rutgers, Cincinnati, UConn and South Florida, and three wins against opponents from the Big Ten Conference, including wins over Penn State, Iowa and Indiana. The dramatic 2012 football season was capped as Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher was selected as the first overall selection by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft, becoming the first football player from the MAC with such an honor. For the first time in league history, the MAC will have seven bowl relationships--three primary and four secondary. The three primary agreements are with the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl (Detroit, Mich.), GoDaddy Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise, Ida.). In addition, the MAC has secured secondary agreements with the BBVA Compass Bowl, the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl and the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC is in the fifth year of its eight-year rights agreement (through 2016-2017 academic years) for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal is the most extensive in the 67-year history of the conference. The agreement calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regularseason MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship Game and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. In men’s basketball, the MAC witnessed Akron reach the FirstEnergy MAC Men’s Basketball Tournament for the seventh consecutive season, as the Zips won their third title in five years. Also, Ohio University earned an invitation to the NIT, while Western Michigan reached the College Basketball Invitational Final Four after wins over North Dakota State and Wyoming. Kent State received an invitation to the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and defeated Fairfield in the opening round. Akron center Zeke Marshall and Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper were selected to play in the 2013 Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game, as Cooper garnered MVP game honors. During the 2012-13 academic year, the University of Akron men’s soccer team won its ninth MAC championship and fifth in the last six years, as the Zips advanced to their fifth consecutive NCAA Round of 16 appearance after defeating Michigan. Akron witnessed senior midfielder Scott Caldwell named as the All-America Scholar Athlete of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy. The MAC had two student-athletes selected in the first round of the 2013 Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft – No. 3 overall Akron goalkeeper David Meyes (Portland Timbers) and No. 12 overall West Virginia defender Eric Schoenle (Philadelphia Union). The MAC also welcomed the addition of West Virginia as an affiliate member in men’s soccer for the 2012-13 academic year. In wrestling, the MAC welcomed Missouri, Northern Iowa and Old Dominion (201415) as affiliate members. Missouri won the 2013 conference tournament title as an affiliate member, snapping Central Michigan’s 11-year reign as champions. The MAC had a conference-best 40 wrestlers earn an invitation to the NCAA Division I National Championship and 11 wrestlers earned All-America status – Central Michigan seniors Ben Bennett, school’s first four-time All-American, and Jarod Trice; Kent State senior Dustin Kilgore, schools first three-time All-American; Missouri’s Alan Waters, Nathan McCormick, Drake Houdashelt, Mike Larson, and Dom Bradley, matching the schools most All-Americans in a single-season; Northern Iowa’s David Bonin and Ryan Loder; and Ohio redshirt freshman Cody Walters. In men’s cross country, Eastern Michigan claimed its 17th conference championship, while the Eagles captured their 31st conference title in men’s swimming and diving. The 31 championship titles for Eastern Michigan in men’s swimming and diving is a conference record. In addition, Eastern Michigan won the program’s 14th conference championship in indoor track and field. Kent State won the program’s fifth consecutive and 19th overall conference title and received its 26th NCAA appearance. Kent State and Ball State both advanced to the NCAA Men’s Conference Championship, marking only the fifth time since 1983 the con-

ference had two programs advance in the NCAA postseason tournament. In men’s tennis, Western Michigan won its second consecutive conference championship and tenth title in the last 15 years. In men’s outdoor track and field, Akron won its third consecutive conference title and program’s fifth championship in the last six years. In baseball, Bowling Green won the program’s first conference title since 1999 as the No. 6 seed in the conference tournament. Women’s athletics continued to shine for the MAC this past year. The MAC had a total of six women’s basketball programs invited to postseason tournaments. Central Michigan claimed the MAC tournament title for the first time since 1984 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, while Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Miami and Toledo all received at-large invitations to the WNIT Tournament. Three MAC programs – Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo – all reached the WNIT Sweet 16. In women’s soccer, Miami earned its fourth MAC title in program history and Central Michigan earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, becoming the first team in conference history to earn an at-large bid. Central Michigan fell to Michigan in overtime, 2-1, while Miami defeated Tennessee 3-2 (OT) in the first round of the NCAA tournament and fell to Duke in the second round. Miami senior forward Jess Kodiak was named third team All-America by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Kodiak, along with Katie Slaughter of Central Michigan and Kayla Zakrzewski of Miami, were named All-Great Lakes Region First Team by the NSCAA. In volleyball, Bowling Green claimed the MAC title for the second time since 1991 and became the first team in program history to win a NCAA Tournament match. The Falcons defeated Yale in the first round, 3-2, and fell to Penn State in the second round. In women’s cross country, Toledo claimed its fifth title in school history in record fashion. The Rockets scored a conference record-low 24 points and have now won three consecutive conference titles for the first time in school history. In field hockey, Miami won the program’s first conference title in program history, while the RedHawks won the programs 17th conference championship in women’s swimming and diving. In women’s tennis, Miami won the conference championship for the third time in the last five years. In gymnastics, Central Michigan and Western Michigan claimed share of the conference championship. For Central Michigan it claimed a share of its fourth consecutive championship and for Western Michigan was the programs fourth overall tournament title. Central Michigan and Kent State advanced to the NCAA Regionals. In women’s indoor track and field, Kent State won its fourth overall conference title and consecutive conference championships for the first time in program history, while the Golden Flashes won the women’s outdoor track and field championship for the fourth consecutive year. In women’s golf, Kent State won its 15th consecutive conference championship. In softball, Central Michigan won the conference championship for the tenth time in program history.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 miles east of Ann Arbor, 40 miles west of Detroit and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It is an area rich in academic, research, technological and recreational resources. The University also has sites in Livonia, Jackson, Traverse City, Flint, Detroit and Monroe. EMU’s 800 plus-acre campus of scenic flora and wooded areas includes 18 miles of walkways and jogging trails and has 122 buildings throughout the academic and athletic campuses. Eagle Crest – Eastern Michigan’s conference center, golf course and resort – is located on the banks of nearby Ford Lake. Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted more than 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan formally paved the way for the establishment of Michigan State Normal School, with the exclusive purposes of instructing persons in the art of teaching; providing a good common school education; and giving instruction in the mechanic arts, husbandry, agricultural chemistry and the laws of the United States. Since its inception, Eastern Michigan, first as a Normal School, then as a College and finally as a University, has grown and developed to respond to the ever-changing needs of society. Over the years, EMU has educated thousands of sons and daughters of Michigan, the nation, and the world. The University currently serves 23,000 students who are pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts, sciences and professions. In all, more than 200 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through the University’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; Technology, and its graduate school. Eastern Michigan’s exceptional faculty, students and alumni include CEOs from major businesses; a National Student Teacher of the Year, National Teacher of the Year, numerous Fulbright Scholars and Milken Family Foundation National Educators award winners; and several Michigan Teachers of the Year. EMU is regularly recognized by national publications for its excellence, diversity, and commitment to applied education.

EMU’s Economic Impact

Since its founding in 1849, Eastern Michigan has provided quality services to the residents of Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, the State of Michigan and other states and nations. EMU’s total impact on the Michigan economy of an estimated $3.7 billion annually reflects a return of more than $42 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $166 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.87 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.

Eastern Michigan is making an impact nationally by channeling its academic research as a means of solving real-world problems. EMU currently has 14 research institutes and centers that focus on community building and civic engagement, quality, community and regional development, small business development, geospatial education, textiles, export assistance and product development. EMU is well known for merging theory and practice for the benefit of the community. Applied research leads to new knowledge, new jobs and new business. Annually, the university receives about $15 million in revenues for sponsored research and community service activities.

toral programs. We strive to provide a student-focused learning environment that enhances the lives of students and positively impacts the community. We extend our commitment beyond the campus boundaries to the wider community through service initiatives, and public and private partnerships of mutual interest addressing local, regional, national and international opportunities and challenges. Founded in 1849, when the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name changed several times ­– to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times; adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975 and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs and numerous community-focused institutes. The University has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003), new Student Center (2006), and the new Science Complex (2010).

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants.

The EMU Identity Eastern Eagles Fight Song

A Look Back at EMU’s Logos

“Eastern Eagles, hats off to you! Fight, fight, fight for ole EMU. Look to the sky, the Eagles will fly, the bravest we’ll defy. ... Rah,rah, rah!”

1929-1991

EMUEagles.com

Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames “Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi”and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. On Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee, composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name “Hurons” from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Indian logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express.

“Hold that line for ole Green and White. Sons and daughters show your might. So, FIGHT, FIGHT! for ole EMU and vic-tor-y!”

1991-1994

EMU Alma Mater Eastern, sacred Alma Mater to your name we shall be true. Ever marching on to victory, we’ll stand by to see you through, Softly floating on the breeze, verdant green with white of snow, This our banner we will carry in our hearts whe’er we go.

1995-2001

Go Green Go Green, roll up the score. Go Green, let’s get some more. Raise a cheer for old Green and White. Let’s show them we came here to fight. Go Green, vic’try we’ll claim. Go Green, let’s win this game. We’ll always fight for old EMU. Come on and let’s go Green!

The EMU Athletic Club provides vital financial support to more than 550 student-athletes at Eastern Michigan University as they strive for excellence on the court and in the classroom. Nearly 1,000 donors generously supported our outstanding scholar-athletes each year. Established in 1994, the EMU Athletic Club raises funds in three key areas for EMU’s 21 varsity athletic teams: annual-use operating funds, endowment, and facility related projects. Today, annual-use giving is the most critical area of support needed by the Athletic Department. These contributions directly support the operating budgets of our teams and help provide the most basic needs to our coaches and student-athletes, including comprehensive national recruiting efforts, out of region travel to maintain nationally competitive schedules, equipment such as uniforms, balls, nets, bats, and much more. Gifts to any of our teams, or to the Eagles for Excellence Fund (which will be used for the most urgent needs of the athletic department), are an investment in the future leaders of the state of Michigan.

WHAT IS COMPLIANCE? At Eastern Michigan University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure EMU's compliance with all applicable NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, MAC and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, MAC and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents); • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. ARE YOU A BOOSTER? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports EMU athletics (e.g., EMU Athletic Club, E-Gridiron Group); • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting EMU's athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, student-athletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete's participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

ONCE A BOOSTER ALWAYS A BOOSTER. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity forever! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with, EMU's athletics program. WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade, students enrolled in preparatory schools and two-year colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent. WHAT IS AN EXTRA BENEFIT? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a EMU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or co-signing of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? EMU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, EMU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Mid-American Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the EMU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or the Mid-American Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges). QUESTIONS? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective student-athletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Christopher Hoppe at 734.487.3263 or choppe3@emich.edu.

Student Athlete Support EMUEagles.com

Student-Athlete Support Services

Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each student-athlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and University rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy. But with hard work and dedication from both the studentathlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other University student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the Admissions Office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, Health Services, the Records Office, Financial Aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

Athletic Training and Sports Medicine

The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of student-athletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. The student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Wally Roeser and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: to provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each student-athlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Strength and Conditioning

The main focus of the EMU strength and conditioning program is to develop the complete student-athlete. Everything that is incorporated into the training program relates to success on the court. The program is not just about lifting weights, but rather the development of all aspects of athletic performance. These areas include speed, strength, quickness, agility, flexibility, explosion, sports nutrition and mental toughness. One of the main objectives of the program is to improve the players’ agility and speed. The goal is to develop stronger and more physical student-athletes without losing speed or flexibility. With that in mind, our staff focuses on improving strength in the “Power Zone.” Abdominal, lower back and hip strength are crucial for an athlete’s success. Increasing strength in these areas decreases the chance and severity of injury and assists in strength and power development. EMU athletes are pushed as much as possible to prepare for competition. The athletes are challenged through physically demanding and intense workouts year-round. The athletes are also challenged during each workout with some type of mental toughness/physical challenge. We train not only the physical side of the student-athlete, but also the mental and competitive side. While everyone lifts weights during the year, EMU Eagle student-athletes will also condition. This places us as one of the best conditioned teams in the country each year. Our goal is simple: Be the best conditioned/most physical team in the country. A highly motivated athlete is a program’s most valuable asset. Everyone in the country works on developing their athletes from the neck down, but at EMU, our program strives for excellence both mentally and physically. Our staff works to develop long-term and short-term goals for success. We work closely with the athletes so we know exactly what they are doing and what they need to do to improve. Developing athletes is a year-round task for our strength staff. During the year, the athletes will spend almost as much time in the weight room as they do on the court. Strength and Conditioning at EMU is a full-time commitment. There is no such thing as part-time champions. EMU athletes work hard but have fun. The camaraderie and work ethic developed in the weight room carry onto the field.
