CMU campus in Fayette, MO has a college feel with a university backing. It is a great place to attend without becoming just a number in a classroom. Because of the small class sizes, each student is able to communicate openly with each professor in and outside of the classroom. Getting around the beautiful campus is easy because of the size. None of the buildings are spread out, they are all on the same plot of land. CMU is definitely worth the visit for prospective students.
The B.S. degree I chose was Business with a Minor in Education. The business aspects of the degree were good. I learned a great deal of information from the online business classes - Marketing, Business, Accounting 1 and 2. I didn't learn so much from the business classes in the classroom. I thought the University gave way too much latitude to the professors to preach their politics. One guy in particular said twice that his goal was to produce politicians who follow his ideology. Unfortunately he taught 4 of the business classes I needed. He appeared to have very little interest in my future employment. Another professor did little more than grade papers after we read the textbook and answered the end of chapter questions. The education portion of the degree really only amounted to a few classes. The student teaching was great, only because the school system where I decided to teach. I can't say the University did much to help prepare. The psychology class and the reading class were both nonsensical. I trudged through them not really learning anything, just getting the material done and completed. The University did what it was supposed to and gave me my diploma, but I can't say that it lived up to my expectations. I'm employable now with the degree. If you're looking for someplace to take you to the next level, this probably isn't the place. This place is good for the diploma in a time crunch.
