History[edit]

Eastern Michigan University was founded in 1849 as the Michigan Normal School. In 1899, the school became the Michigan Normal College when they formalized the first four-year collegiate curriculum for teacher education in the United States. In 1956, the School changed its name to Eastern Michigan College after adding several departments and then became Eastern Michigan University in 1959.

For the first 80 years of the school's existence, the school's athletic teams went by the nicknames the "Normalites" and the "Men from Ypsi." In 1929, the school' athletic teams adopted the nickname the Hurons. The EMU Board of Regents voted in May of 1991 to replace the existing Hurons name with the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

Jean Cione taught here and was the school's first female athletic director
