Central Michigan University was established in 1892 in Mount Pleasant, MI. Known as the “Chippewas,” the school maintains a collaborative relationship with the Saginaw Chippewa tribe located at a nearby reservation. CMU is home to Beaver Island, which is one of two university island research centers in the Midwest. The Alternative Break program at CMU is ranked third in the US and offers students the chance to travel abroad during semester breaks and study social issues.
Central Michigan University is a big university with a small campus feel. Within my first year I connected with so many professors. They help quite me with studying, reviewing and any questions I had regrading an assignment. The community is so friendly and polite, they greet you with a smile.
