I enjoy working at CMU because every day is different, with a great bunch of students and happy staff.

I always love an art project – whether it’s revamping a flea market find, decorating my home, or creating something for my garden in my ceramics class.

Advice for students – communication! The best part of the job is getting to know each student, and we want to know what’s going on with you.

I try to live by the Golden Rule – Do unto others.

Meeting new students from around the world and learning about new cultures. Also, we have a great team, who are dedicated to our students.

Love to travel, enjoy watching football, basketball, and surf competitions.

Communication is key. If there is a problem or challenge and we know about it early, we can get the right people involved to help the student.

We learn something new every day regardless of our age. No one is ever too old to learn.

Always complete and submit your financial aid documents on time.

I love working at CMU because the sense of community I get from the staff, faculty and students.

I love to travel. I have a collection of shot glasses from different parts of the world from Ireland to Cambodia.

I love being a part of something that changes peoples lives for the better. I love hearing stories from our online students, both women and men, who are aspiring higher in life and in their careers. I love being able to create and use my talents to help the institution reach its goals and mission. I work with a great ‘family’ of people.

Cooking, hiking and organization. I want to organize the world 🙂

I have worked at CMU since October of 2011. The staff is amazing and the school is growing fast. Every day is a learning experience, which motivates me to come to work.

I play soccer 3 times/week. I also love to watch soccer. That’s my favorite sport by far. Every Tuesday and Thursday I run at the gym. In the summer time, I love to go to the beach with my soccer ball and my surf board. In addition to sports, I like to try different restaurants and enjoy spending time with my family.

Communication is key at CMU. Call, email, come to our office. We want to hear from you!

I enjoy working at CMU because it is a very welcoming environment. I feel like I am valued and can make a difference.

For fun I like to visit beaches and parks around Sunny San Diego!

Stay focused. It is too easy to get distracted but keeping in mind the end goal will help you stay on track.
