What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my five years at Central Michigan University I definitely had the experience that I had planned to in college. I had a wonderful education, had some amazing professors (and other professors that were not so amazing), took some very interesting and informative courses, and made some life-long friends and memories! All in all, I think CMU is a great school to choose for college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You have to do a lot at Central to make yourself standout as a competitor in the job/applicant field upon graduation. The school does not have a good reputation for academics, and for good reason. The classes are not challenging whatsoever. However, there are myriad opportunities to get involved on and off campus which can help to make the overall experience more holistic and challenging. You will get out what you put in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that it’s a pretty decent school, but I think that if you’re a minority student you might be more comfortable at another college, there have been many racial issues on this campus, I’m speaking from my own experiences. It can be uncomfortable to adapt and adjust being away from home and on a pwcampus

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of CMU is that it is pretty calm and relaxed most days. Also it has many career options to choose from. The dorms are beautiful and spacious too, which is very convenient for me and many others. I went there for a tour and the tour guide was very informational about anything and everything that was asked, which made me believe that this college is the right fit for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CMU has been great to me. I was brought here by the Centralis Honors Scholar program which is the full ride competitive merit scholarship program CMU offers. With this scholarship, I have participated in many unique experiences at very little cost to me including studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea. The school also has one of the US's best alternative breaks program with which I will be spending my spring break this year. As far as academic programs are considered, the best are probably anything at all in the College of Business and anything related to biosciences. The size of the campus is just big enough to provide resources (like the Capital City Internship Program which buses students on Tuesdays and Thursdays to Lansing to work in the capitol) and small enough that you will still get to know your professors. The average class size is 20:1 and I have often had classes with only 8-12 students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a pretty good school. Class size is a huge positive as the classes are just the right size to form personal relationships with your professors and class mates. A big issue is the food, it's definitely some of the worst college cafeteria food, especially in the Robinson cafeteria.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The atmosphere at Central Michigan University is unique and like none other. With a campus filled with more than 25,000 students CMU still manages to bring a small community feel to a large university. The academic opportunities at Central Michigan University are unlimited. Classroom sizes are designed to fit the subject being learned and professors and resources for academic success are always available. Besides the fantastic educational opportunities, CMU also offers nearly 400 registered student organizations for students to join and get involved outside of the classroom. Overall, Central Michigan University appeals to everyone and is the best way to further your education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Michigan University is an incredibly welcoming community that draws people from all walks of life. Even though CMU does not have a large amount of minorities, the university makes it a point to make the community that is CMU open to discussions on race, religion, sexuality, etc to help students gain understanding, respect, and regard for their fellow peers. Central Michigan University has a diverse group of academic programs that range from Fashion Design, and Recreational Management to Biochemistry. Granted, the university could stand to get rid of some professors here or there. However, you will more than likely find a few gems in every department. CMU also provides their students with plenty of opportunities to improve themselves, whether it be personally or professionally. These range from internships and research opportunities to giving access to nutrition facts for on campus food services, exercise facilities, and physical and mental health centers. Overall, if you are a college student and want to be involved with something(s) greater than yourself, CMU is where you need to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Michigan University is a fantastic university. One of the biggest things that pulls people into coming to this school is how friendly everyone is, whether you know them or you're just seeing them for the first time. Students and faculty are always willing to help if you reach out. The dorms are great compared to many other schools because there's always a place to get away, but there's also always plenty of room to hangout with your friends. The food could be a little better or have a better variety, but overall it is pretty good. Everything on campus is easy to find. One of my favorite spots on campus is the library because it is a nice place to relax and get some peace and quiet, or to get a study room with your friends. The academics are great because the professors are engaging and constantly available for extra help. Overall, Central is a great school and I do not regret my decision of attending college here.
