CMU Homecoming

Homecoming is the one time each year that all Mavericks — students, alumni, staff, families and community — come together to celebrate being part of the Maverick family! This year we're celebrating in the spring as we pay tribute to the strength and perserverance of our students, staff, faculty and alumni for being leaders during the past year.  We are Maverick Strong! 

Our sincerest thanks goes out to our new Homecoming sponsor, Timberline Bank

April is Maverick Month!

We want to spread the Maverick spirit the whole month of April! The CMU Alumni Association will host two spirit contests so everyone can show their Maverick pride. To help celebrate, the community is offering many discounts for CMU the whole month of April. Be sure to stop by these local businesses offering discounts. Help us paint the town MAVroon and white!
