Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2016
"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 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.

Kelly - 2/13/2017
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Vanessa Anne - 12/27/2016
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011
"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."

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Tyler Wagner - 9/4/2016
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."
