Campus Ambassadors

As a prospective college student, I was forced to pick schools to travel to and tour.

Moving into 2016 Leadership Safari

For the last 18 years of my life, I have been looking forward to this moment, dreaming of how it would feel to move into my dorm for my first year of college, but to be completely honest? It wasn’t as dramatic as I had imagined. Deciding to go to Central Michigan University was a decision that was made by one factor only, the Leader Advancement Scholarship, had I not gotten that scholarship, things may have gone a different direction.
