"As a CMU student, I rode a gondola in Venice, spent an afternoon at the Louvre and crossed over the Ponte Vecchio each morning on my way to class. To say that my dreams came true is a complete understatement."
"Coming to campus for the first time, I never felt like I was just another face in the crowd. Every person I met went out of their way to personally welcome me to campus. I became a campus ambassador to give prospective students the same feeling of a warm smile and welcoming hand each time they step onto campus."
“When I visited other universities, I found that the art program was often isolated from the rest of campus. One of the things I love most about CMU is the integration between departments. Not many people can find the connection between art and leadership, but here I have been able to define what that connection is for me.”
“Coming to CMU, I had a huge fear of public speaking. As an orientation mentor for the past two years, I have gained the confidence to speak to groups of more than 400 people. I never thought I would be able to present in front of a crowd that large, and I am shocked that I now love it so much!”
“In my career, I hope to combine my artistic flare and organizational skills to produce beautifully unique weddings. I was attracted to the field of event planning because of the joy it brings to others. I am excited to one day open my own wedding planning studio in Michigan.”
