Central Michigan University

Mount Pleasant, Michigan 

I currently attend Central Michigan University. I am very proud to call this place my home. CMU offers so many great programs, majors, minors, learning opportunities. I can honestly say that coming to Central was one the best best decisions I have made and that it has already changed my life in so many amazing ways.


Sociology – Youth Studies Concentration



When I started out at CMU, I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to major in. I was constantly being asked “What’s your major?” and I was becoming more and more frustrated with the fact that I had no clue. With help from my awesome academic advisor and Leadership Director, Dan Gaken, I decided to explore majors within The College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Studies. I considered my passions and what I would like to do with my life. Through my CED101 course, I realized that my dream job would be doing something in which I get to serve others.

My current major is Sociology, Youth Studies Concentration with a minor in both Advertisement and Leadership, with the hopes to work for a Nonprofit some day.
