Degree: Therapeutic Recreation/Recreational Therapy
Graduation Year: 1997

Located in colleges mall town setting. Knowledgeable and dedicated faculty. Nice local recreational resources, environmental education emphasis. Have seen through alumni publications that campus has expanded over the years since I was there. Had been able to utilize program projects in real-life practical applications.

Degree: Communication Sciences and Disorders, General
Graduation Year: 2006

CMU is a wonderful university with a great community feel to the campus. The campus is beautiful and the staff and faculty that I encountered were all wonderful and really cared about the future of their students. The university is always growing and changing with new advances in different fields. It is a great place to get a BS or MS in many different fields of study.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2011

I absolutely loved attending CMU. While I had the opportunity to attend University of Michigan or Michigan State University, I chose Central for several reasons. It was really the only place that felt like home to me - it had the friendliest campus and the only tour where I didn't feel intimidated. This feeling remained for my entire tenure at CMU - I have never been on a more welcoming college campus, and I made many lifelong friends. For me, this was extremely important, as it allowed me to concentrate on my academics without worrying about my social life. I got plenty of personalized attention from professors that you would never get at a bigger school, and grew by leaps and bounds in both my academic and personal life. I'm currently in graduate school at Michigan State University, and feel that Central prepared me very well for my experience here - however MSU's campus is much less navigable physically and socially than CMU's. I would definitely recommend Central for people seeking solid academics and a wonderful college experience.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe my college experience was good. I enjoyed the closeness of my classes in undergraduate college better than my graduate experience. Some classes seemed too easy and not informative enough.

Great environment. Large choice of programs and degrees. Friendly, warm and smaller in size compared to other universities in Michigan.

Degree: Healthcare Administration

CMU was a great experience. It is a smaller campus than most universities in Michigan, but it is a comfortable and safe environment. The health administration major was new when I began, but it has developed into an organized and rewarding program. CMU has well prepared me for a future career in health care, as well as encouraged me to continue my education.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in my third year of attaining my Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Sciences. I am a single mom and some of my psychology classes for my minor are online. All the chemistry and biology courses are taken on campus as lectures or labs. Central Michigan University is a great college!! It is perfect for transitioning from a small, limited-opportunities school to a place where your greatest dream is only four to five years away. The classes are designed to move along quickly yet include activities to help students remember the material. CMU want students to apply their accumulated knowledge to further studies. They love to show off their alumni! I will be one of them soon, standing proudly with my degree and thanking my son for motivating me to stay in college.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2016

Central Michigan University has wonderful resources available to its students with the goal of helping us achieve our own goals. Wherever you turn someone is ready to help you. The school pride and community is like no other. Students go above and beyond what is expected of them in volunteer groups and it truly is a great community. The programs here are very specific and there are many academic advisers that help with the process if it becomes confusing. I really enjoy my time at CMU because it has opened up many horizons for me, creating opportunities I didn't know existed. I would recommend CMU to future students solely on the academic achievements you can accomplish with the help of CMU's staff. It's been the best few years of my life because now I can look forward to a bright future.

This is my first semester using CMU online courses. The classes are fast moving, but very interesting and informative. My professors have been quick to respond with any questions or concerns I may have had. I am aware that I may need to have a proctor for exams. However, none of my classes so far have required this. I did check with my local library, and I am able to arrange to have any exams neccesary to be proctored there. So far, my experience at CMU has been very positive.

Hello, this is my first year at CMU. My first class is an online course. I was told that I need to identify a proctor for exams. They suggested one of their centers or my local library. My local library doesn't proctor exams nor does the University of Michigan libraries (I work at U of M).

CMU is not user friendly to students who work traditional work hours such as M-F 8:00-5:00 p.m. I was told that if I wanted to use one of the centers I would have to come before 5:00 p.m., or come on my lunch hour, or make an appt. during working hours. I was shocked! I now have to use Washtenaw Community College testing center and pay $30.00 to have each exam proctored.
