Central Michigan Life is Central Michigan University's student newspaper. It is almost entirely independent from the university. Only the salaries of the adviser and executive secretary are paid through CMU; all other expenses are covered by the student media company's own advertising revenue.
The paper is published and distributed twice per week during the spring and fall semesters. During the summer, the paper is published online at cm-life.com. It is available in newsprint and online, posting news as it happens.
CM Life's circulation is currently 8,000 and it is distributed by Mid-Michigan Industries at various news racks in CMU's academic buildings and residence halls, as well as several businesses within the Mount Pleasant community.
CM Life was named one of the top three non-daily newspapers in the nation for 2007 by the Society of Professional Journalists. It also was named the best college newspaper in Division I in Michigan. CM Life has been named an Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker winner in 1975, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1989, 1990, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2013, 2014 and 2015. It also was a finalist for the first time for an online Pacemaker in 2010. While a student at CMU, cartoonist Drew Sheneman published cartoons in CM Life, winning two awards for his work during that time.
In 2013 and 2014, CM Life was named College Media Company of the Year by the College Media Business and Advertising Managers.
