Student Services and Student Life

CMU offers counseling services to students. The service is free of charge to all its students. Other services of the University include commuter assistance, which is made up of many students who go to the Great Hall for cups of latte and a sit-down with friends. Every commuter is given an assigned Commuter Assistant for their year at the College, and the Commuter Assistant’s job is to be accessible and helpful to all the students, especially those entering their first year. The College also publishes the Daily, a publication posted at many locations around the campus. It provides students a lot of valuable information about what is going on today and in the following days in the university campus. Aside from faculty advisors given to each student, they will also be given Academic Advising by CMU’s Student Services Department. They are available to talk with students about their courses, personal problems, spiritual issues, and many other topics. Students are also given the option to purchase accident insurance and medical insurance. Parking services are also offered to students, and all commuting students who bring their cars can buy an assigned parking space. Residential students and apartment dwellers however, should be registered through the South Campus receptionist, and they are required to purchase an assigned parking space with a power outlet. The assigned spaces will be in South Campus Lot P. CMU values the spiritual and creative lives of its students, and they offer Chapel and Fellowship Groups, Prayer Rooms, Spiritual Direction, Recitals, and Forums in the community. For student employment, the University offers the Campus Student Employment program as part of its financial and professional assistance to students. The Student Life Staff serves as a general resource for student concerns and issues, and it focuses on Chapel Programs, Disability Services, Commuter Student programming, and Residential Life. CMU also offers first year students “Welcome Week – Orientation.” This program runs for two weeks, and students are given the opportunities to meet other students, connect with the university’s faculty and staff, and know more about the prevailing lifestyle inside the campus.
