Innovative partnership combines best of both worlds for college freshmen
For many college freshmen the experience of living on campus is as important as the education they receive in the classroom. It’s the time when young adults get to test out who they are and how they want to be in the world. Now, thanks to an innovative partnership between Central Michigan University and Mid Michigan College, that opportunity is available to more high school graduates than ever before.
“The residential element – being at a university – is a huge benefit for students,” says Kira Castle, “Feeling like they’re at college is important. Being away from their hometown has been beneficial for many. They have an opportunity to decide what kind of student they want to be.”
