Your experience at Central Michigan University will shape your future and last for a lifetime.

Meet, greet, lead.

Life at CMU is about community. Find your place in one of CMU’s 21 residence halls, some of which are themed halls, home to students with similar fields of study and career goals. Discover “Pure Michigan” right in your backyard. Kayak, hike and ski in Mount Pleasant or travel across the country with our High Adventure Club. Volunteer, get involved in the community or find one of nearly 400 student organizations to discover new experiences.

Fire Up Chips!

You and your fellow Chippewas attend athletic events for free. We have Division I athletics, with championship football and more than 50 years of successful women’s basketball teams. Oh yeah, and we have a Quidditch club! You’ll play and work out in one of the finest college recreation facilities and largest intramural programs in America. Bring a water bottle. And good shoes.

Plenty to hashtag.

Ke$ha. Laverne Cox. Tim Gunn. Dan + Shay, Gen. Colin Powell. When you’re done studying, take in a concert, listen to the life story of a guest speaker or express your deepest self at Kaya Coffee’s open mic. From special events to killer sushi, memorable moments await you and your friends on and off CMU’s campus.

World-class academics. An active lifestyle. Friends for life. That’s CMU. ​​​​​​​
