I have had a wonderful experience at Central Methodist University so far. Everyone on campus is friendly and welcoming, the professors are willing to work with students whenever possible, and my classmates carry a wonderful reputation and are a joy to talk to. I always have a group to sit by in the cafeteria, and I have a couple of close friends whom I hang out with and talk to frequently. My first roommate is the only roommate I will need; we have so much in common, and I look forward to sharing a room with her for the next few years. I have moved over two hours away from home to spend my first semester in a dorm on campus, and I have felt welcome there, even though I am in a completely different environment.

The professors care about you! The classes are not the easiest, but if you show effort in class then the professors will help you succeed. Everyone on campus is super friendly!

I love going to college at CMU. Though, some usually complain about living in the dorms, the only complaint I have are the rules and prices of Room and Board. At CMU you are not allowed to live off campus until you are 21, so most only are able to live off campus at most for 2 years. Myself, I will only have the opportunity to live off campus my senior year. This is difficult because tuition at CMU is high, and Room and Board is quite pricey as well. I already feel like I could be drowning in student loan debt already, and knowing that I could be cutting some of that cost by almost $4,000 by living off campus can be quite unsettling. Besides this factor though, I really do enjoy going to school at Central Methodist University.
