CMU was more about helping me than justHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
CMU was more about helping me than just telling me stuff. My success draws more from the faculty mentoring that was given to me, eagerly and without hesitation, than from individual courses I've taken. Central Michigan University was and is a phenomenal university. It's a nice, pleasant campus with convenient courses and walkways. The campus makes up about half of the relatively small town/city. It's outside of busy big city life, but still has about all of the nearby restaurants and shopping anyone really needs. It's got a world-class library and brand new buildings. Not bad at all.

Question
There was poor advising from the beginning ofAverageChemistry
There was poor advising from the beginning of the firs year. There was not a clear direction for what I should be registering for, and not guidance about the degree I stated I was seeking. The science department and math department, both very crucial for my degree, had instructors who did not speak English as a first language so understanding content was difficult and I felt as though I was teaching myself much of the information. The TA in each class did speak English, but were arrogant, unhelpful, and not readily avaialble. Even when attending study sessions, I often left feeling as though it was a waste of my time and I still had unanswered questions. I did expect the degree path of the sciences to be challengeing, but also fully expeced that when I needed help and sought it out, that it would be avaialble and helpful. It was not on both accounts.

Question
A degree from CMU was a joke thenGeography and Geosciences
A degree from CMU was a joke then and I'd bet it is now. NO advice on degrees or career possibilities, just hand over your wallet. I should have gone to a two-year tech school like Ferris was back then---I would have been money ahead in both spent funds and earning potential. Avoid CMU if you want an interactive educational experience.
