Thank you for attending!

Nearly 1,000 students and supporters "fired up" during Fire Up Fridays in 2024! Catch the blaze again in spring 2025. Until then, discover more ways to experience CMU's campus firsthand.


Fire Up Fridays

Admitted students – Get Fired Up!

Fire Up Friday events are designed to celebrate your admission to CMU and provide you and your family with a deeper understanding of your next steps. You will hear from and connect with many of our support offices and spend time learning more about academic programs.
