Detroit's Future is Central!

At Central Michigan University, we're passionate about preparing students for successful careers by providing them with networking opportunities that ultimately lead to post-graduation employment.

Join us Feb. 26 at Quicken Loans Headquarters, Chase Tower, for Fire Up Detroit, an interactive event showcasing the success CMU students and alumni have by actively engaging in experiences on and off campus. Admitted students can attend Fire Up Detroit, giving them early networking opportunities with advisors from different academic colleges, co-curricular professional development departments, and other CMU faculty and staff.

The event includes:

  • First-person accounts from current Quicken employees who are CMU alumni and have achieved great success in their careers
  • Welcome message from CMU President Bob Davies
  • Panel discussion with Quicken interns who are current CMU students
Networking is one of the most important things you can do for yourself as a young professional, so join us at Fire Up Detroit!
