“When visiting campus with the GEAR UP program, I quickly discovered CMU is big enough to have a lot of opportunities but is not too overwhelming.”
“I’ve experienced a lot of learning outside the classroom through attending campus events, listening to guest speakers and leading student organizations.”
“I worked with other students to create the HYPE program consisting of student panels to discuss social justice and pop culture topics. This has helped encourage students to formulate their own opinions about key issues.”
“I traveled abroad to Costa Rica with the MAC scholarship program to take a human rights course and teach children about gender equality and disabilities awareness.”
“I chose to work with the GEAR UP program to give back after it prepared me for college. I motivate young students to stick with their college career plans and turn their downfalls into strengths.”
“CMU has provided me with hands-on experience to lead others, handle event logistics and obtain knowledge necessary for my future career as an athletics director.”
