Overall, this is a great school! There is a ton going on here all the time. Sports, academics, groups and organizations, helpful teachers and advisers, great facilities, and the campus is beautiful. Student life is awesome, there is always an event of some sort going on. This school is wonderful for class time as well, the professors are very knowledgeable, and class time is strait to the point, most classes are 50 minutes to 1 1/2 hours; not long at all.

I love CMU. The whole atmosphere of the college is wonderful. The campus isn't to big, nor is it too small. The school spirit and the way it comes together is astounding. Also the people are amazing. In my hall, every door is open and making friends is extremely easy compared to stories from other schools. I truly love Central Michigan University, I would not have picked another school.
