"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."

"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."

"Central Michigan University offers the full college feel without the big college campus. It not overwhelming or too much to handle. You can easily fill your day with back to back classes (something that cannot be done on larger campuses). Central Michigan is in the heart of the state and offers the bigtime college feel in small town USA."

"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."

"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."

"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."
