    Keep an open mind when you come to CMU as this could be a new experience for everyone. There are a lt of different types of people here from different lifestyles, but they are all here to learn and have fun and make great friends. Make sure that you plan your time wisely, go to classes and review your notes often! And take advantage of the prof's office hours-they are there to help you.

    a few simples tips for students planning on coming to central michigan is walk around campus a couple times and make sure its not to big and not too small. also, use rate my professor because most of the time the class will always be a great time with the right professor. read through the requirements on all scholarships that you receive. make sure the first semester of your freshmen year you set up a four/five year plan. that way when you schedule for the next semester you already know what classes you need.

    Based on my college searches on, Central Michigan University would be the school that I'm looking for because of the Meterology Undergraduate Program that I would major to become this amazing meterologist for The Weather Channel in the future hopefully. My whole life, I would love going outside running in the rain (I run Cross Country and Tack and Field in high school), build forts in the snow and go sledding, enjoy of there being no school due to icy conditions, and enjoy the hail with also going crazy over wanting to chase tornadoes too. No matter what I did every day, I still would be congenial about weather. Since last year, I started Cross Country with being 4'9 and 120 lbs. Now I felt tired of being fat so going into high school, I lost 35 pounds (weighing 85 lbs) and from that point on, I still enjoyed running and improved my 5k times greatly and will continue with the 2 remaining years I have left in high school to do something crazy like that, say kids who don't participate in any sport at all. Along with Cross Country, Track was also my sport that I enjoyed doing. Running 1-2 runs around the high school tracks was a heck of a lot of competition but I enjoyed doing it. Now when I start talking about band you would think, oh what a geek is he. For those who take pride in everything and just bully people because they are in band, that's not right from doing what they like to do. Don't stop that person from becoming who they want to be. Anyways, Band has been the proper hobby that I have had since 5th grade. Year by year, I would become better to the extent to where you get to own the words of getting 1st division every year in MSBOA solo and ensembles, getting invited to honors band (only me and 4 other people went out of 75 band members), and being a section leader that cares about their section and lives, loves, and laughs during high school but also, you become a teacher to them on different things they cannot grasp in band. I went to the CMU band day and absolutely had a blast playing Fall Out Boy themed songs even though it was cold outside. But noticing how amazing your marching band is, it makes me want to get up out of the bleachers and learn how they march and play very well. February 25th 2016, I will be taking a field trip up to your school for the school day with some of my peers for the class of 2018 for North Branch High School. I cannot wait to see what I will experience at Central Michigan University.
