What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
A jam-packed, fast-and-furious four years. All programs are very passionate about what they do and their students show it through a commitment to a fairly rigorous courseload. Definitely time to get the well-rounded college experience, though.
Brian from Pittsburgh, PA
A prestigious university that's strong in all departments, such as business, engineering, computer science, and the arts. Located in an up-and coming city, CMU is lively and entertaining for a college student looking for a small town feel. Academics are rigorous but extremely rewarding.
