The 2019 fall pledge drive takes place at the WEMU studios, 426 King Hall, on the EMU campus. Weekday shifts take place between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
There are some exceptions. On Friday we will stop at 6pm. On Saturday we begin at 8:00 a.m. and Sunday we begin at 10 a.m. On Sunday the live pledge drive ends at 7pm at end of Big City Blues Cruise. On Thursday, September 19th WEMU staff will take over answering phones at 2:00 p.m.
Parking: There is parking in the EMU Guest Lot adjacent to McKenny Hall at the corner of Oakwood and Washtenaw as well as the guest lot next to Pease Auditorium on College Place. Parking is monitored in all lots including on weekends so please only use guest lots or you may be ticketed. Please arrive on campus early because guest parking is limited especially on weekdays. We will provide a validated parking voucher for you at the end of your shift.
WEMU will feed you well with donations from area restaurants and will pick up the tab for parking on the EMU campus. As a pledge drive phone volunteer, you are a crucial factor in the overall success of WEMU. We look forward to seeing you on September 12th – 19th as we work toward another successful spring pledge drive.
In exchange we will pay for you parking and provide food while you are in the studio with us. Please click the link below to learn more and sign up to help us answer phones. We ask that you sign up for two consecutive hours if possible.
Thanks for making a difference and supporting 89.1 WEMU!
