My school is probably best known for it's education program. It has one of the best teacher education programs.

Amanda

Central Michigan University is best known for its party scene and campus life.

Claudia

I have recently discovered me school is best for doing projects at finals time. It sucks at the time, but in the long run its very good real world experience. Because there is a very small list of options as to what to do in Mount Pleasant, most people just end up partying. Even though we party a lot, people are serious about their studies. We have top programs in the state and country. We also specialize in being technology forward.

Karen

CMU is simultaneously referred to as a teaching school and as a party school. Prospective students looking to excel in either of those areas can find that opportunity here, though perhaps one will take more discipline and hard work than the other.

Veronica

Central Michigan is a nationally prominent university known for integrity, academic excellence, research and creative activity, and public service.

Elizabeth

CMU's Broadcasting and Cinematic Arts program is pretty well-known, as is the Speech Pathology program. We are currently building a medical school, as well.

Stephanie

Central Michigan University is best known for alot of things academically and environmentally. To name them all is just as difficult as to name just one or two. 71% of CMU students volunteer or do community service, exceeding the national average for student volunteerism. This makes CMU best known for their friendly enviroment. Everyone is actually happy and they truely care about people and the enviroment in which they live in. CMU is also the first university nationwide to offer a four-year accredited athletic training program. Those students go directly on to become pro athletes or famous athletic figures.

Central Michigan Univeristy offers a great education to students from all over the world. We have an amazing football team that is division one and you cannot beat out team spirit.

Central Michigan is best known for its educational programs. Many majors at Central Michigan are very hard to get into and are extremely competitive! If you are not willing to work hard and strive to be at the top of your class, there is a good chance you will not be excepted into your program.

Jessica

My school is best known for its football team. We have won the MAC Championship the past two years. I think a lot of this is due to the previously mentioned school spirit. Everyone gets extremely riled up for the football games and to socialize with the other excited students, faculty, and alumni. It adds a lot to the college experience.

Joshua

CMU is a teacher factory. Most people who attend CMU take introduction to teacher just to try it on for size, some don't go any further. CMU is also focused on perpetuating the American Dream by making future doctors, lawyers, and business executives. Finally, in the last seven years since I've attended CMU, there has been an increased effort to bring the football team into the sports spotlight. They seem to invest a lot of energy into teaching and football here at CMU.
