Myths, Legends, and Tall Tales of CMC

Myths, Legends, and Tall Tales of CMC is a student-led Annual Giving project collecting alumni stories to publish in a yearly book. The stories are meant to showcase snapshots of the distinct CMC undergraduate experience – whether in the dorm room, on the playing field, or simply words of wisdom that alumni remember from their favorite professors. We hope that the chronicles of these unsung and perhaps long forgotten campus stories will remind readers of all the reasons they fell in love with CMC.

The first edition of Myths, Legends, and Tall Tales of CMC included memories of professors and friends, an alligator in a bathtub, the first Beatles album, “gross outs,” and a playful kidnapping and movie star encounter. The book is sent to CMC alumni donors during the months of February and July. For more information, contact
