Over the course of the year, there are two “open house” type opportunities to visit the program.
CMU and You Day typically occurs in late September. Students and their parents have the opportunity to not only learn about the meteorology program, but also learn about all aspects of CMU. Free lunch will be provided in a residence hall. Free tickets to the CMU football game will be distributed. Information about this event can be found on the main CMU homepage at http://www.cmich.edu, as the event approaches.
The College of Science and Technology holds SET day in mid-to-late July. At this event, students and their families can find out more about the meteorology program, and attend a lab demonstration showcasing our software used for weather analysis in the meteorology lab. Free lunch is provided in a residence hall. Information on this event can be found at the College of Science and Technology homepage at http://www.cst.cmich.edu, as the event approaches.
Appointments to visit CMU can be made through the admissions office on the web at http://www.cmich.edu/x1255.xml. The admissions office can arrange campus tours, and can contact a meteorology faculty member for you to schedule a visit to our program. We advise you to contact admissions ahead of time to schedule a visit so we can make sure someone is available to accommodate you. It is also possible to schedule a visit to the program by contacting one of the meteorology faculty directly, via the contact information available on the Faculty webpage (insert link here).
As you consider the meteorology program, please take a look at the Science and Technology Residential College. This program allows students in science majors to live together in Woldt Residence Hall. These students receive special benefits, such as early registration for science courses, special guest speakers, faculty-student dinners, and overnight field trips, among others. Typically several incoming meteorology students elect to live in the Residential College, with some staying in the program for multiple years. More information on the Residential College can be found at http://www.cst.cmich.edu/residentialcollege/.
