Central Michigan University Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Allie

Somewhat, a lot of people may be able to get into Central, but the academic programs are actually quite tough, ecspecially the Health Professions.

Alex

No. Despite the fact that CMU students do drink and party (as do all college students), we also offer a lot more to the community and campus in areas of leadership, philanthropy, and other events

Jesse

These stereotypes could not be farther from the truth.

Gina

In some instances, yes.

Chrissy

No

Tina

No

Kim

No

Brandi

for the most part

Meghan

Yes, to an extent.

Tara

Sometimes

Danielle

I do not believe so

Amanda

No, not everyone goes out every night

Chelsea

no

Erin

I don't think that we party any more than any other university. I have no clue about the STD's, and I agree that CMU has a very good teacher education program.

Alex

Partly. We have a bar to go to every day of the week and hit house parties on Saturdays, but we still make it to class (at least I do).

Rachel

Yes

Kelly

Yes.

Chris

absolutely

Shelby

I would believe that they are about fifty percent accurate.

Joe

I'd say 65% accurate. There are a lot of people at CMU who drink and party in moderation and responsibly but there is a smaller percentage of people who always get carried away and that overshadows everything else often times.

aaron

not sure - probably not

Kaitlin

No, i feel that the smaller campus is more fit to give extra attention to students. It doesnt matter if they are just as smart as people that go to the more prestigous universities, they dont seem as smart just because the go to CMU and its not true.

Barry

yes, and no

Brett

I think that every college is a party school if you look in the right places, but I don't think that CMU is any better or worse at it.

Joshua

Not at all. Even people that party make the Dean's list

Nate

yep

Kelly

From what I can see yes.

Ashley

somewhat.

Lindsey

no

Shelby

No, they aren't

Alissa

This stereotype is somewhat accurate because every college student, no matter where they attend, is most likely to party. But students at CMU are not only focused on partying. This is where the stereotype is inaccurate because many of the students who attend this school are very involved and work hard in order to play hard.

maryann

no

Taylor

I think they are way off. Every college you go to, people are going to party. Central is also a great University that have helped many students to a great future.

Steve

No, but the majority of students do drink even if they are underage. Partying every night and the sex are completely wrong.

Todd

There are certain instances, but for the most part no.

Jenny

Since I transferred here, at first I didnt believe it, but sometimes I have to....

Ashley

No, it isnt just partying, a lot of students dont party there are a lot of smart people that go to central we aren't lazy and not all the girls are slutty

Scott

The town is smaller than most major college campus's but there are a lot of people that go to CMU. Also they have changed the standards and made it harder to get into CMU from what I've heard.

Kristin

No they aren't. A lot of friends I have involved in fraternities and sororities, including myself, are good students and often times are involved with many other activites. In my opinon we are the group that includes some of the most successful indivudals, who get involved with many events on campus and are very knowledgable.

Joseph

Yes

jake

yes

Christina

To an extent yes, but there are students here who study as well.

Tina

No

Ryan

No there are many students that particpate in multiple extracrurricular activities and are very involved on campus. There is a lot more to Mt. Pleasant that the bar scene.

Chris

No, most students who make it past their first semester are here for school not a party.

Ryan

to an extent. we know how to have fun but i don't feel it as bad as it once was.

Ben

Yes, we are the best college in Michigan.

Lane

Yes

Emmerson

No, not for the most part

Katelyn

To a certain extent. It depends on the type of people you meet. The frats do throw a lot of parties but not all of them drink and they do support philantrophies that are for good causes. The classes are easier when compared to certain schools. And they do not reject a lot of applicants.
