"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Central Michigan University is a nice small town campus. Everything is with in walking distance in which you feel very safe. There are book stores and gift shops right on campus. The campus looks like a garden. The library is beautiful with its travertine exterior. In my case, the geology department was great. The professor's were very knowledgeable. One of the leading Geologist was the "Rock" Professor, with several published text books under his belt. The campus setting is friendly and the people are helpful. The housing for the campus is very diverse. Anywhere from dorms, apartments to married housing and fairly priced. Other resturants, night clubs and shopping malls are close by, as well. For a big fun night out on the town the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort is just minutes away from the campus. What a wonderful experience to be part of Central Michigan University. What I would improve? Absolutely nothing. It would be worth you while to visit the campus and the surrounding areas to get a taste of what college should be like."

"My experience at Central Michigan University online was overall extremely positive. At first I was skeptical that online education could provide the same quality as traditional classroom learning but that thought quickly went away. The faculty are all experts in their fields and the classwork was challanging. Using virtual classrooms, online chat sessions, email and bulletin boards, I never felt alone. There was always someone I could find to help me with my questions. Learning online also allowed me to juggle my career and family. Courses can be taken around my schedule. My one disappointment was the lack of research resources. CMU offered some online databases but they were inadequate for many of my papers and I had to rely on many sources of information. ' Overall my experience was a geat one."
