Talking to Forensics GA Gerald Djajaputra and VP Patricia Terhaar they both agreed that Forensics had huge impacts on their lives at EMU. “My five years being a part of EMU Forensics have been transformative. I moved here from Florida with no family and quickly found one with the team.” says Gerald. Due to Covid-19 many competitions were cancelled this semester. “While our States and Nationals tournaments have been cancelled, the Forensics Team has hosted Zoom calls, virtual movie nights, and had mini competitions to stay in contact and keep up morale.” said Patricia.
“This program is incredible, so I just want to say thank you to EMU for their continued support of this program as we continue to create bold, intelligent and caring students. EMU Forensics is what it means to be TRUEMU.”- Gerald Djajaputra Forensics GA
