Central Methodist University Reviews
Central Methodist University is located in a small town called Fayette Missouri. The campus is beautiful especially during spring and summer. Each professor is dedicated to the ultimate success of the students, and do whatever possible to make sure that these students understand what they need to do to reach for that success. Although the school is located in a small town, the school holds fun activities such as taking people who sign up to the movies, baseball game, etc. or even ice cream socials and more that keep the people attending CMU involved and always meeting new people. The dorms are nice and provide everything you need to add on to the college experience. The majority of the school are athletes, and the stands are always packed and active when we are supporting each other in hopes of a win for the Eagles! I've enjoyed the students, professor, coaches, and the environment and I'm sure that you will too!
I am a freshman at CMU and this first year will be coming to a close quite soon. I love this university and all of the people I have met, both faculty and students. I plan to attend all four years of my college career here and earn a Bachelor's Degree in Marine Biology, which this is the best Marine Biology school in the Midwest. The campus here is incredible and the professors are extremely helpful and never want you to fail. Most of my professors offer to stay later after their office and class hours just to do review sessions with their classes before taking an exam, midterm, or final. If you want a small school where all of your professors know your name and your largest class is about 50 students then I highly recommend checking out CMU.
I have had a wonderful experience at Central Methodist University so far. Everyone on campus is friendly and welcoming, the professors are willing to work with students whenever possible, and my classmates carry a wonderful reputation and are a joy to talk to. I always have a group to sit by in the cafeteria, and I have a couple of close friends whom I hang out with and talk to frequently. My first roommate is the only roommate I will need; we have so much in common, and I look forward to sharing a room with her for the next few years. I have moved over two hours away from home to spend my first semester in a dorm on campus, and I have felt welcome there, even though I am in a completely different environment.
