CMU used to be a decent place to get an education, while having a little bit of fun. Not anymore. Now academics are secondary to partying. Mount Pleasant is a horribly boring town, so basically, all you can do is drink

This school is absolutely miserable. There are minimal positive things I can honestly say about the university after my 3.5 years of attendance. The cafeteria food is actually pretty good despite all the negative feedback on here. The winters are brutal with subzero temperatures being a norm second semester and snow/cold being common the entire second semester. Football tailgates can be pretty fun (not the games) but only if you like drinking. The surrounding city is AWFULL!!! It's a podunk country town with nothing to do on weekends except attend essentially 2 bars, Okellys/Wayside and The Cabin, and Okellys/Wayside is full of underage (even 17yos!!!!) individuals in a grotesque environment. The small campus is convenient when going to different classes. Parking is brutal at times. People that "bleed maroon and gold" are delusional and are either alcoholics or major potheads that don't care about where they are.
