Eastern Michigan University is partnering with the Michigan Historical Center to help preserve some of the state's history. Five EMU grad students will perform research and catalog artifacts at three historic sites around the state. Faculty Coordinator Nancy Bryk says this is part of a larger effort by the university to help students gain real-life experience. Bryk says EMU's students have done outstanding work with the MHC in the past, and she's proud of the university's entire program. Among the locations the EMU students will be working is the Mann House, in Concord, MI. They'll be performing research and cataloging artifacts.
