Fayette is a small town with great people. It is a place you can walk home and not look over your shoulder. CMU was a great community that has so much to offer and always an event to attend.

Great college, older dorms. The student athlete experience is great and the professors work with your sport schedule.

This is my first semester here and it's online this summer so I don't have a lot of experience meeting people in person, however, they seem very friendly and hard working based on our discussion forums. The teacher are also extremely knowledgeable.
