Homecoming is one of the busiest times here at EMU, and the Office for Alumni Relations wants to make sure that EMU students and alumni are informed on the 2012 homecoming events. The details on the homecoming events are on the website at http://www.emich.edu/homecoming.  Eastern Michigan University Alumni on Pinterest will be posting fliers for future events as well.  That way you can pin to remind yourself of EMUs’  favorite events! http://pinterest.com/EMUAlumni/

In case you did not know, EMU Young Alumni Blog also has a special place with the newly loved social media site, Pinterest. This form of social media is extremely helpful and fun! By following Eastern Michigan University Alumni on Pinterest you can re-pin several images/ideas that will be fun for you, and you can start your own EMU pride board or even feel free to send in images that would like to see represented on our boards, at tmaguire@emich.edu or lmcclees@emich.edu

This is a fun way to interact with fellow EMU alums, share fun photos, ideas, and memories. Who doesn’t love to see people wearing EMU gear around the Nation?  Or enjoy the history of EMU, with the Huron Pride board? Our Pinterest site will continue to grow and share more ideas and memories daily.

As for the Alumni Chapter Presidents out there, feel free to promote events with the Pinterest account. Yes, we have board for that! Create events and promote your chapter through Pinterest. For example, send us fliers, information about your chapter, and photos. We can link them all to your own website or Facebook page.  You can never promote too much.  It’s great marketing strategy that will not be overlooked much longer.

Be ahead of the game, and start sharing your information through our Pinterest page. http://pinterest.com/EMUAlumni/
