WHAT I LIKED

CMU is a great school because the campus is close together, so it really does not take too long to get from one end to the other. All the classes that I have taken are really fun and very interesting. There are so many choices for each topic that you can take such as for Humanities you can take Mythology. Each major program here is CMU is great, they all have their own perks that bring so many people here. The performing arts programs are really fun, a little competitive, and entertaining, and there is such great faculty that are willing to help with anything that you need. Grand Junction, Colorado is also a great place to be because it rarely gets too cold and it is sunny almost every day, which I love so much.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I have nothing that I do not like about CMU so far.
