The new improved layout features a modern and interactive design and creates the best user experience for the website yet. In addition to the updated overall look, the new site offers easy access to sport-specific pages as well as other great areas of content, such as Eagle All-Access (video), Eastern Insider Podcast and Eastern Social Media Accounts.
The new look, accessible and clear navigation and responsive design easily adapt to the user’s device (desktop, tablet or mobile).
“We’re excited to launch the new EMUEagles.com look,” said associate athletic director for media relations Greg Steiner, who spearheaded the University’s overhaul efforts. “We had a vision for what we wanted it to look like, and the folks at SIDEARM Sports brought that vision to life. Our department looks forward to continuing to tell the stories of the amazing student-athletes, coaches and staff of the. East Michigan in many new and exciting ways through the powerful platform. “
Part of the upgrade includes a new media wall with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube posts in a larger, easier-to-view format on the homepage and sport-specific pages. From the new media wall, fans can instantly follow @EMUAthletics and all of our 19 sports programs across multiple platforms. Additionally, the site has better overall feed and makes it easier for users to find specific content. New in 2021, interactive tabs and display ads offer one-click transitions to ticket pages, special promotions, and unique content.
In addition to the redesign of EMUEagles.com, EMU and SIDEARM have made critical upgrades to its mobile app. New features like increased access to team and roster information help fans stay up to date with their favorite shows like never before. Fans are encouraged to download the EMU Athletics app to their iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet and take EMU wherever you go.
