by  Central Michigan University: Museum of Cultural and Natural History

High school grades are encouraged to ask current students enrolled at Central Michigan University about life on campus in order to help ease the anxiety that can often be associated with the transition from high school to college. The program follows a flexible outline that provides talking points. Classes attending the session are welcome to develop their own questions beforehand with guidance from their classroom teacher. CMU students will range in age and grade level  provide a more comprehensive look into college life. Discussions are meant to be informal...and fun!
