Undergraduate tuition and fees at EMU will increase 3.9 percent or $474 per student taking 30 credits per year.  The increase is just under the state tuition restraint cap and will allow Eastern to continue receiving state performance funding for not exceeding the state guidelines.

They're rare on college campuses around Michigan, but a couple of Eastern Michigan University students are traveling around the Ypsilanti campus on a "Moto Uni."  It's a one-wheeled, Segway-like machine that costs up to $1700 and takes several days to learn to ride.  I spoke with EMU seniors Daniel Larson and Kyle Wickham about their experiences riding them on campus and around town. 

  

An early morning fire at University Green Apartments in Ypsilanti appears to have been caused by candles that were left lit after residents went to sleep.  Eastern Michigan University officials confirm that students have been affected by this fire; two were injured, a few were treated for smoke inhalation, and a handful have been displaced as the buildings have been evacuated.
