Central Michigan University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
Completing my undergraduate degree at CMU was definitely the best choice for me. My time and experiences there prepared me for my master's degree that I am now pursuing in bilingual speech-language pathology. CMU's smaller class sizes and ability to conduct individual research with many of the professors while also having the diverse class selection is what makes it competitive with larger universities in the state. My time at Central was amazing and I would definitely recommend the school and the CDO program to any perspective students looking to have unique opportunities during their 4 years of undergrad.
For the most part every one of my professors treated students with respect and understanding. I minored in American Sign Language and legal studies, and every professor I encountered for those classes, were well educated on the subject and was always willing to help with just about everything. Some professors however, would really try their hardest to make it so you fail. One of my Psychology professors, told the class on the first day no body really passes his class, he makes it so you cannot. The campus is clean for the most part, and everything is close, you can get from one side to the other within 20 minute walk.
Central Michigan Universities exercise science program provides students with state of the art equipment. The professors really do care about you and want you to succeed. However, you have to be the one to take the initiative because they see so many students. If you make yourself stick out from all the other faces you will go far. I recommend talking to professors at the end of the hour, sitting in the front row, and going to their office hours. Central Michigan University is a great place to go because every faculty member is there for you.
Central is A great school with lots of opportunities to get involved and grow as a person. however there is a lot of separation between the majority and the minority students. If you are a minority student you must be willing to seek your own advancement opportunities.
Central Michigan University has a great teacher education program with many great instructors. There are small class sizes and many in class and teaching experiences. Central Michigan University has class options in East Lansing as well as Mount Pleasant.
Central is an amazing college, and I feel really blessed to have found my place in community health. The professors in my program were all extremely knowledgeable and were all willing to go the extra mile to help out their students. Everyone on staff at CMU wants you to succeed, and I would recommend to anyone to go to Central Michigan University.
Central Michigan University prepares you for the future, whichever yours may be. CMU has quality professors who not only are exquisitely competent in the curricula, but also care about the student as a whole as well. Professors are interested in establishing rapport with students to ensure they feel comfortable and confident with their education.
This program was fantastic and I feel it prepared me for starting my Masters Degree in Speech Language Pathology. There are great opportunities to get experience within the field including observing in the on campus clinic and even having the opportunity to have hands on experience providing speech and language services as an undergraduate student. This helped me further understand and know what demands would be placed on me as a future SLP. The courses provide you with additional requirements determined by ASHA for graduation from the Masters program.
I completed my degree through CMU's Global Campus program which allowed me to stay close to home and continue working at the job I had at the time. My job was at Victoria's Secret and, despite most views on the company, this job was very important to me because I felt that it was teaching me things that I wasn't able to get in school. For example, 2 years into my employment, I was approached with the opportunity to participate in a 6 month management training program with the company. The great thing about this opportunity was that it prepared me for business in general, it was not solely focused on Victoria's Secret or Limited Brands (the parent company). The CMU Global Campus made it possible for me to continue working towards those goals while still obtaining a great education. My teachers for my undergraduate program were fantastic. They encouraged and pushed me to do my best with challenging projects and class participation. One of the things I like the most about the Global Campus is that you aren't learning from career professors who have no insight into the actual business world. All of my professors had been, or were currently, a part of some aspect in business for many years and were able to work that into lectures and discussions in order to give us a real world view. These teachers were also willing to work with scheduling issues. For example, when I worked my internship, there were a few nights that I had to work events that conflicted with class. Never once did I have a teacher put me in a position where I had to choose, instead they would work with me to make sure that I was able to work the event while still obtaining all information from class. If you are looking for a school that can fit a crazy schedule with teachers who understand real world experience, CMU's Global Campus should definitely be considered. Your degree comes from a nationally accredited, well known university, but can be done without having to bend and fold to the regular college lifestyle.
Central Michigan University is an amazing school with great opportunities for its students. As a Child Development major, I was able to work within the community through volunteer work and observations. Being provided with this experience will help me as I continue to further my education in the Human Service field and also when I am a working professional in this field.
