    Great for these types of students

    Those students who want to know their professors and develop lasting relationships with their peers will do well at Central Methodist. Students who don't like large classes or huge rambling campuses will fit in at CMU. Everything is within walking distance, so even a bike isn't necessary.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go there! It is a wonderful learning atmosphere and you won't get lost in the crowd or become a number. Get involved with activities. Balance your study with your social activities. There is plenty of opportunity for both, and professors are dedicated to your success. Before attending any college, talk to them in person, sample their food, and take a tour. CMU will pass the test!

    Bang for the buck

    Central Methodist is expensive because it is a private school. However, there are ways to cut down tuition costs. For example, they offer a 1/2 tuition program if you are an active member of a Methodist church or successfully completed Missouri's A+ high school program. They also offer individual band, sport, and academic scholarships through the school.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love CMU! It is a small college and easy to make friends and to get around campus. There are people available to help you with your studies. There are many campus activities besides sports to get students involved with campus life. I am not a band major but participate in marching, concert, and jazz band. Their music program is awesome!

    Am learning a lot

    Most instructors really help you learn and are interested in your achievements. Most professors are also readily available outside of class for assistance, and study sessions/tutors are available for most classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are interested in applying for student loans, our financial adviser is very pleasant and helpful. You will, however, have to take the initiative and inquire about your financial possibilities.
