5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our campus is always buzzing when it comes to student life. We have many intramural spo and fun exercise class opportunities at the student activity center. We have a gorgeous greenhouse and botanical garden area in the center of campus that students can enjoy. We have cool traditions such as the midnight scream during finals week of every semester.

Scholarships: I have filed the FAFSA for every year that I've been attending college and I have filled out hundreds of scholarships for college, yet still am in the position of taking out thousands of dollars in Unsubsidized loans. This is not the university's fault that the government has decided that my parents make to much money for me to receive aid, despite he fact that my parents are not helping me pay for my higher education, but the college does have quite a few regulations for being eligible for a subsidized loan. It would be helpful if I could have my honors scholarship from the college and still remain eligible for the subsidized loan option instead of having to pick the lesser of two evils. Also it would be nice if my financial aid office would stop placing aid packages of up to $2,500 in my financial aid award package and then promptly removing them without notice. When I inquire about this removals they inform me that they have finally verified my paperwork and realize that I don't qualify for the aid. This constant change of my aid package makes it hard to plan loan amounts.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love our Greek life participants, although I myself do not belong to any Fraternities or Sororities, I have many friends that are actively involved in Greek life. I look up to the way they help the community through volunteerism and philanthropy projects, as well as the ways in which they make our campus better. I believe our Greek community does a lot of good for our town and the University and I wish I could afford to join their ranks.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not great variety, and not very many healthy options

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life do some great things for the community however you practically have to be rich to get in to them, therefore everyone thinks they look down on the non-greeks. Its not always true though.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I haven't met a person that I hated at Central.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would not have chosen any other school. The people are friendly, there are a wide variety of activities to be involved in, and the classes are very well organized. The general education courses are very large in size, however once you narrow it down to classes specifically for your major, the class sizes get smaller and the teachers are able to focus on you on a personal level.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school does its best to help students find jobs and internships for their career choice. I don't have much experience with it myself, but there is an entire department at CMU dedicated to this.

College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not in the Greek community, but by what I've experienced is that they do a lot to try and help the community. They are nice and are welcoming to new members at the beginning of every year.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Students on campus are very friendly to one another! Thanks to other students on campus, I haven't felt alone or uncomfortable on campus.

5 College Junior

Majors: Central provides a wide variety of majors, and it is pretty easy to get into the program you want!

5 College Junior

Majors: The Broadcasting program at Central is one of the best in the nation. The professors know what they're talking about, and are very involved with their students. They even help provide a wide variety of curricular activities for the students to apply what they've learned in class. There's MHTV, the school's television station, and the school has two radio stations that students can work at and create their own shows. It's one of the best hands on programs a student could ask for.
