What to expect:

 "I was happy that CMU provided a local presentation of their program. It provided me an opportunity to validate the school's commitment toward the students outside of their 'campus environment."
 "We had already made our decision but after the presentation even my husband and I were excited about this next step for our daughter. It really put our mind at ease about what lies ahead."  
"I heard more about programs that I was unaware of prior to this event. It really inspired me to get more involved as an incoming freshman."​​​​​​​​
