What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school itself isn't why I like attending this university. The buildings aren't anything special, the food isn't fantastic, but the class sizes are all really reasonable, the professors are flexible, and the other students are great. I've made so many friends, there are honestly some fantastic people here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’m not going to sugar coat my experience here at Central Michigan University; it’s awful. You know that feeling when you have a knot in your stomach that you just can’t shake? That’s exactly how it feels when I am here. I have not clicked with anyone here since the majority of students are involved in fraternities and sororities. At CMU Greek life is huge and the parties are wild; they never stop. For some reason everyone likes to black out four days a week, and I can’t figure out why. I mean I guess not remembering your nights can be fun, but then again that makes it extremely difficult to keep track of who your new “sisters” and “brothers” are. That’s another thing I have noticed about Greek life, it’s just paying to have friends and meet people. If you don’t enjoy greek life or have similar views as I do, then CMU is not for you. I am not here to talk all negative about this university, it has numerous programs to offer for its students. All of my professors that I have encountered my freshman year here are extremely helpful and made learning enjoyable. If it was not for the amazing staff, I am not sure I would have survived the year here at CMU. Its dorm rooms are extremely spacious, larger than any other university that I have visited. I only have two other roommates in a space meant for four. Dorm rooms at other universities are the size of a shoe box, which makes it uncomfortable to live in. At CMU that is not the case, my living situation has been very nice and comforting at times when I felt like I did not belong at the school. As for the food, it started out great, but I got sick of it as most freshman do. Eating the same food over and over again can vanish your appetite. Since my experience has been so rough at CMU, I will be transferring to Grand Valley State University in the fall to continue my education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Michigan University makes you proud to be an alumnus. Though the school is located in a small town, it is the 3rd largest school in the state, with a large and active alumni group. The education you receive from CMU is top-notch. This was especially true with my academic major. Though other schools in the state offered a Health Administration major, many of the largest health system in the state would prefer a CMU graduate than any others because they knew we were equipped with the skills needed to excel in the field.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Central Michigan University. It is where I feel like I belong. I cannot see myself going to any other college or university. Ever since I stepped onto that campus on my very first visit I knew that Central Michigan University is where I am supposed to spend the next four years of my academic life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited Central Michigan University and loved everything about it. The students, professors, athletes, and other employees were all so friendly. CMU is the place to be. My older sister attends college at Central Michigan and she loves it. She has so many friends and is so excited to be enrolled in such a student-centered school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a lot different from all the stories you hear about the good old days and people don’t seem quite as enthusiastic about their college experience than I expected. Professors are very great and helpful and the classes are very educational. Overall a decent school but not quite what I had expected.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I know that CMU is a good school, they have a great education, lots of clubs, internship opportunities, and events. I personally have not enjoyed my time here because of some inner, mental problems going on. But also my social life, or lack thereof, has not made me happy. Trying to find friends who don't live around you that don't constantly party was a little hard for me, but also my own issues made that hard ass well. Because I come from a huge suburb near a large city, I also couldn't bear the life outside of campus, it's extremely barren beyond campus in comparison to what I'm used to. This was not something I knew would bother me before, but now I know it is a deal breaker. Overall CMU is a good school, but for me personally, not a great one.
