Colorado Mesa University Reviews
I am currently attending Colorado Mesa University as a first semester freshman. I came here last summer for a volleyball camp and fell in love with this place. I was fortunate enough to be offered a spot on the CMU Mavericks NCAA Volleyball team. I was instantly drawn to CMU when I visited and knew it was where I want to attend school. The team and the coaches are inspiring and amazing. CMU also offers a bachelors in Psychology, which is what I am pursuing. I plan to be a child psychologist. I live in the dorm and this is a new experience for me. I love getting to know all the people around me. I hope I will be able to continue to stay at CMU for my four years of college. Oh, did I mention that it is beautiful here!
Colorado Mesa University is a very diverse and welcoming school. They offer many different programs ranging from Liberal arts, professional, and technical at the master's, bachelor's, associate and even certificate levels. The faculty and professors take great pride in providing students with many educational opportunities and tools that help us succeed in today's extremely complex and interconnected world. Their focus is on providing us students with quality academic programs which they meet expectations to the maximum. While the majority of students are full-time, Colorado Mesa University makes it very easy for students who have families or other jobs to get classes in. They provide a wide range of evening classes and online courses to help non-traditional students the opportunity to further their education, accommodating to students needs are one of their main priorities.
I love CMU! It's small enough that the professors remember their students and have high standards for success. Living on campus makes it very inclusive, everyone is friendly and respectful. Grand Junction community welcomes the new students to their home and welcomes them to participate in the local activities.
