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.
Central Michigan University is a great institution in the laid back setting of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. One of my favorite aspects of CMU was its campus. This is because it was small enough that I could walk to all my classes, and it never took more that 15 minutes. I also enjoyed my classes. Some were very challenging, but the instructors were fantastic and provided the resources to be successful. I am happy with my degree in biology. However, I did the general option which is very non-specific and covers a vast array of topics. The downside of this is that many employers are looking for specialized graduates, so if a student is looking to work immediately upon graduation this is not the best option. The perk of this degree, is that it's perfect for students, like me, who weren't 100% sure about the career they want to pursue. With my degree I was eligible for a huge selection of graduate programs, and after deciding on a career I was able to apply, and get accepted, into a great graduate program.
The faculty are usually friendly and approachable and are willing to meet with you to assist in resolving matters. There is much online access for traditional students as well as global campus users. I have enjoyed most of my classes at this college so far and have grown with many of them I have taken. I am hoping to continue on as a graduate student in English once I finish my Accounting degree.
I enjoyed my Graduate studies at CMU. I would recommend this program to others.
CMU was a great college with various degrees to choose from. If you are looking for a school that isn't too big or too small, CMU is the right place for you.
Great school! Large enough to have lots of opportunities for academic and extracurricular involvement, but small enough to be comfortable and not intimidating to a non-city girl. I felt like I got to know some of the professors well and had guidance for being successful in school and in applying to professional schools.
Beautiful campus, loved most of my professors, lots of good classes to choose from.
A great place. The campus and the city aren't real nice, but the professors are knowledgeable and caring.
It is a small town feeling with great opportunity. The environment was second to none. I visited many schools and never got the feeling I did in Mount Pleasant.
