Central Michigan University Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.

Sara

Classmates are always very helpful and willing to get to know you and work together to be successful.

Sarah

Unfortunately, there are a lot of dumb people here. A lot of them weren't able to get into MSU so they go here. Also, a lot of the students are people who goofed off in high school so they spent a year in community college and transferred here. Many of the students are focused on having a good time rather than building a future for themselves. Again, there are always exceptions and I'm involved in a political club on campus and the people in there are very motivated.

Issac

In any given class room seated with thirty 18-23 year olds, I am able to surpass nearly all of them academically and often find myself feeling rather unchallenged on a near day to day basis and although I may have had superior education options prior to enrollment, many classmates are unable to maintain a healthy grade point average.

Amanda

Mostly friendly, but can be standoffish and not easily approachable.

Sean

Love to party

Danny

There is no specific sort of person that defines CMU. There's people of every color, every background, every interest, every social standing; everyone interacts with everyone, and judgment based on these facts is rare. Discrimination isn't unheard of, but that's at any school. As an African American student, I've always felt comfortable on this campus and I've never experienced any sort of hate based on my diversity.

Brian

For the most part all of the students are really friendly. I have met a lot of good people in my time here at CMU. Whether you're in class, on campus, or at a party, chances are you will make a lot of friends.

Kayla

Some students seem to complain a lot about studying, homework and professors; I have personally had some really bad classmates that would sleep in the class, come hung over, talk on their cell phone, not participate. Others are super amazing and love to help out.

Sarah

Many of the people I meet are extremely friendly and want their classmates (and themselves) to succeed and try to help other and accomplish their own goals.

MyAngela

Students here are very friendly. A lot of the students definitely enjoy having a good time on the weekend, but we all, well, most of us know that we still have to get our school work done because that is very important. Other than that the students here are great, very helpful, inviting, and super friendly.

Melissa

My classmates all seem to be very determined with high goals set and are working hard to achieve them.

Samantha

Most of the students keep to themselves and some students are very out going, but respectful of the professor.

Bethany

Friendly, somewhat competitive but ready to party.

Evan

Committed, fun, and helpful.

Tammy

Most of my classmates are people just like me! We allhave an agenda: Graduate and go on to pursuit greatness. Some are young and some are working adults. There is diversity present in the class, which is good to get an overall perspective and view of people from different ethic backgrounds.

Vanessa

My classmates are a diverse group of people.

Ashley

My classmates have all been welcoming. I feel they are all friendly and are in the same boat I am in. They are all up for making new friends and getting to know each individual personally.

Ashley

The student body is varied but the core seems not to be no so mainstream, the people in my classes at CMU are Richly diverse

Grace

my classmates are focused and passionate about their major.

Sanya

Easy going, often frustrated, funny, and study hard.

Julie

The experience I have with my classmates at Central is one to brag about. Everyone is always willing to help and give advice. Especially when certain classes create groups to work on projects, you instantly get to know these people throughout the semester and in my case, end up becoming great friends! I can?t think of a better experience than meeting new people all the time in class.

Holly

My classmates are very intelligent but do not know how to balance out school and partying.

Sarah

My classmates are students that are here to learn and grow in their field of study, they are also willing to be there for other students and help them out.

Amanda

In most of my classes there are freshmen just like me coming to Central Michigan University to learn and get a degree so that we can start our future careers and start a family, but you may be in some classes that are more upper classmen which is ok, there is no need to be scared, just be confident and try your hardest!

Joe

Attention level and cultural backgrounds are all different, but all of us know that if we didn't have to be in class, none of us would be there.

Kimberly

My classmates are respectful, civil, and welcoming.

Kristen

Most of my classmates are dedicated students who are just as interested in their education as I am, though like every school, there are some students who could put more effort into their education.

Megan

My classmates are all diverse in age, race, academic choice, and attitude.

Alyssa

My classmates are almost 100% like me, nervous, yet excited, scared, yet ready to take on the world of college, so there's nothing to be feared from reaching out and making connections.

Samantha

We're ironically overworked people (whether it be from education, partying, or working) who drag ourselves to class when necessary in order to ultimately fulfill our purpose of being at school in the first place; this is excluding the fact that we have nothing else to do but sleep and eat anyways.

Elizabeth

At Central Michigan, there are many different people. It is a very mixed crowd. Everybody that I have met has been pretty nice, and always willing to help. It is a good environment to live.

Mike

All my classmates are engaging and interesting. Everyone has something to say, and everyone takes part in the conversation. If someone else needs help, most (if not all) are willing to help out. Above all, I would have to say that Central Michigan is one of the friendliest schools in Michigan, if not the nation.
