CMU Campus News

Darnell Gardner awardedLem Tucker scholarship
by Central Michigan Life
Apr 30, 2009
“Full-ride scholarships are a distant dream for some college applicants.
But not for Darnell Gardner.
Gardner, a senior at Davis Aerospace Technical High School in Detroit, was chosen as the 2009 recipient of the Lem Tucker Journalism Scholarship, a full-ride journalism scholarship offered at Central Michigan University.”

Letter: Excited for Demetri Martin
by Central Michigan Life
Apr 02, 2009
“I personally am very excited about comedian Demetri Martin coming to CMU's campus. As an adult who enjoys comedy and who is connected to the real world and other students here at CMU, I know that this will be a big hit.
While I agree that the school could have spent $43,000 on micro-scholarships, the fact of the matter is that the school didn't and we are instead getting a quality comedian who has a following here and is also very likely to have a sell-out crowd.”

Mar 24, 2009
“Livonia junior Laura Khalil plans to take advantage of the recently-created summer Pell Grant.
"I probably will take a summer class at Schoolcraft Community College," Khalil said. "I want to graduate as soon as possible with taking out fewer loans."
The Federal Pell Grant Program is now available to students for summer classes.”

JONES | Men's basketball takes a step forward despite challenges
by Central Michigan Life
Mar 22, 2009
“The Mid-American Conference men's basketball championship game was held March 14 and for the sixth consecutive season, CMU did not take part.
The Chippewas' season ended the previous Thursday, as they fell 64-61 to Ball State in overtime of the quarterfinals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.”

Keeping tuition down
by Central Michigan Life
Mar 20, 2009
“Five years ago, a college education was expensive.
Now, a college education is very expensive - and outside the reaches of many prospective students.
Central Michigan University should follow the lead of other Midwest schools and expand its financial aid offerings.”

Women's baskeball loses, but program turns page
by Central Michigan Life
Mar 16, 2009
“Despite losing in the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference tournament, the women's basketball team made significant strides toward being relevant in the MAC.
Central Michigan University lost to undefeated regular season MAC champion Bowling Green 82-65 on Friday in Cleveland, Ohio at Quicken Loans Arena to end its season.”

Economy may result in less financial aid, officials say
by Central Michigan Life
Feb 17, 2009
“The March 1 deadline to turn in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is fast approaching.
Diane Fleming, associate director of client services for the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, said more students are getting turned down for private loans because lenders have tightened their eligibility criteria.”

Minority enrollment has slowly increased
by Central Michigan Life
Feb 15, 2009
“Thirty-eight years ago, Juan Zamudio was a freshman at Central Michigan University during a time when minority student enrollment was mostly an afterthought.
He was one of many students recruited by United Migrants for Opportunity Inc., to attend college on a full-ride scholarship, as a part of a concerted effort to bring minorities to Michigan schools.”

Scholarships suffering along with the economy
by Central Michigan Life
Feb 15, 2009
“As the stock market declines, so do the university investment holdings which fund endowed scholarships and programs.
The targeted private donations of $10,000 or more known as endowments are a source of pride for higher learning institutions. And they are on a wild ride in a crippled, spiraling market.”

Enjoy Res Life
by Central Michigan Life
Feb 12, 2009
“In response to the Feb. 4 CM Life editorial "College Adults," I am a junior who is a scholarship student. I was required to live on campus for the first two years and decided to spend my last two in Trout Hall as well.
I agree that students should be allowed to make their own decisions, but at the same time, I have lived with several freshmen and have come to the conclusion that the longer they are forced to live with someone with different experiences, the better.”
