Central Michigan University Reviews
CMU has a beautiful campus and many opportunities to get involved and meet new people. I have met people that I consider to be my best friends and it never would've happened if I didn't choose to come to Central. The diversity on campus could be improved and the living conditions aren't the best for most residence halls. The resident hall food isn't always good and I actually got sick from the food once. Although, CMU probably isn't the best College ever it has become a place that I have grown to love!
Central Michigan is a great school! I just wish the community was more so a college town, there isn't much to do outside of campus. MY professors were amazing, they were always an email away. Library and study rooms are great, even around exams they have therapy dogs and free coffee! There are so many clubs and organizations to choose from, no matter your interests! I do wish the dorms were a bit more updated as well as some of the academic buildings, but overall it is a beautiful campus. Even parking should be updated, considering how many people have cars on campus.
Great university! Small in size but very liberal staff and students, respectful people, a wide range of courses, and New Venture Competition for Entrepreneurial students! Five different police forces that are money hungry and anxious for arrests though.
