WHAT I LIKED

The class sizes are small enough that the great professors can give help when students need it. There are a wide diversity of student organizations and programs so that you can network and start building experience from the very start. The campus feels like a community, not just a place where people go to school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The administration doesn't always make decisions that benefit students as much as their pockets.

WHAT I LIKED

It's a small community with many opportunities to get involved. Everyone is very welcoming. The professors are very understanding and great at their subject matter.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you don't like walking, bring a car. No matter where you live, you'll do quite a bit of walking to get to class

WHAT I LIKED

As a current student, I've found that it's easy to connect with the people in my major, and I've made friendships in my classes that have lasted beyond a single class. My favorite part of the Central experience is the RSO I was able to join. I've formed close bonds with the people involved and I've been able to adopt more responsibilities that have forced me to grow out of my comfort zone. I'm especially excited to be part of the International Ministry through my RSO. I've included photos of that experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If I'm being completely honest, the attendance has dropped a lot, which means fewer students are applying to campus jobs, like working in the markets and cafeterias. It has cut the dining hall hours considerably. The food itself isn't very good, but that's to be expected for college cafeterias. The hardest part is knowing what people would think if they knew my ideology and my beliefs, being a conservative. I've learned to keep my mouth shut during class depending on the topic.

WHAT I LIKED

One thing I like about Central Michigan University is that you have a relatively big college feel in a small, quaint community. It is super easy to navigate campus, which is super helpful when you are starting classes the first few weeks of class. With campus having a small community feel, you definitely feel that resonated in the classes. The professors get to know each student personally which is very nice because then you feel comfortable coming to class and you feel welcome on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One thing I do not necessarily like about Central Michigan University is that people like to complain about anything when something does not go their way.

WHAT I LIKED

I think Central Michigan University is a great stepping stone for students, it is a relatively cheaper 4-year college and that is the reason I came to this school. They have tons of scholarship opportunities. Overall the campus is nice but the dining halls are terrible.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food here is not good at all, some of the professors are lackluster/do not really feel like they want to be here, there's limited timing on dining halls and where to go, and the food is the biggest downside to going here.
