3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Taking classes in the summer noise violations and underage drinking were things that people kept a close eye on, but during the fall and winter terms, it seems as though the rules became more lenient.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are plenty of guys to choose from. I have seen guys that fall into a variety of different categories.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The teams are excellent and the players do a lot in the community. Everyone at the university is a fan of at least one of the sports teams. Football Saturdays really show how much all of the students have in common.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There should be more variety in the off-campus housing. There are a few places that are extremely expensive and you do not get what you are paying for.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Ann Arbor is a very expensive city for everyone. What causes the most problems is the the cost of housing closely followed by parking costs.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is said that one can eat at a different restaurant in Ann Arbor for and entire year and will still not have eaten at them all. There is something for everyone and they range from cheap to a little expensive but worth it. There are plenty of student discounts because majority of the people in Ann Arbor are Wolverine fans.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are plenty of fraternities and sororities to join. There is no division between Greeks and non-Greeks. Some of the older chapters have houses that have been handed down. Others that do not have house tend to stay in the same apartment complexes.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I am not huge on going out or partying, but the few times that I have the experience was very good. Based on friends stories the night life in Ann Arbor is amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is the perfect balance of college town and life beyond college. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, sports and anything one can imagine to keep busy.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Having a pre-med concentration aiming for a degree in bio-molecular science is challenging, but I imagine that if it were not, everyone would go on to become a doctor. The rigor is acceptable for the career path that I wish to enter. All of the facilities are pristine and new. There are plenty of internships as well as jobs that go hand in hand with any major at the university.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The students are extremely driven and incredibly helpful . The staff provides the best information and help that they can.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is extremely diverse with plenty of open-minded individuals.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I transferred from Michigan State because the University of Michigan beats every other school on every level. When you come here, you're not only joining the student body, but also joining a close-knit community full of culture. That's what truly sets UofM apart: the culture throughout the town. No matter your orientation or background, you are welcome at Michigan and within the Ann Arbor community. I've had a wonderful experience here.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Students are highly involved in sporting events, especially football and basketball. The Maize Rage is amazing. School spirit is also extremely noticeable: each student has at least one Block M on them at all times. Football Saturdays are a huge deal and the university acknowledges that as well. Sporting facilities are top-notch.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The application process is fine, but it's the fact that you do not receive all the aid you need that is the problem. The university has raised tutition and room costs, yet lowered my aid despite my family's reduced income. My biggest advice: save money before college to avoid an abundance of debt.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: As a young woman, I do not often feel safe walking alone at night, especially after a night of drinking. Reported crimes are committed multiple times a week during night hours. We need more security on campus. The university also needs to take sexual assault and rape more seriously. There is absolutely no reason to keep students who commit these assault crimes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is extremely pricey, especially if you do not wish to live in a 9-person house. There are apartments available as long as you sign your lease a year in advance. Having the freedom is great, but the pricing and variance of apartment types needs to be worked on. There are four or five "luxury student apartment" buildings near campus even though it's unnecessary for college students to have a luxury apartment. We need more average apartments for real-world students.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Campus life is a blast. Everywhere you go, there's something fun and new to do. Restaurants, coffee shops, and nightlife are conveniently located next to campus. The university has been renovating dorms each summer and will soon be renovating the recreational sports facilities.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The inside of facilities are mostly renovated while keeping the classic exterior of each building. Walking through campus feels like walking through an Ivy League's campus. The Diag and the Law Quad are two of my favorite and most unique places on campus. The Law Quad is like Hogwarts and The Diag is the center of campus where everyone meets up, clubs hand out their advertisements, student life promo events occur, etc. If you want a quiet study space, go to the Law Library or Hatcher Library. The Nichols Arboretum is a lovely place to experience nature within Ann Arbor.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: What's wonderful about Ann Arbor is the mix of city and nature. If you're looking to shop, hike, get a drink, or observe wildlife, Ann Arbor has everything you need in one place. Large events occur year-round for all cultural interests. As a Big Ten school, sporting events are top-notch. The university is dispersed throughout the city, so the locals are aware and welcoming of the students in the community.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life, aside from a select few special individuals, is for elitists. Sororities are for snobs and fraternities are for the sons of alumni looking for a party. Greek housing is made up of very large houses scattered throughout central and south campus. Greeks tend to present themselves as less-than-intelligent, thus creating a somewhat dumbed-down atmosphere in classrooms.

3 College Junior

Academics: I enjoy my major and its classes, but I feel that it is unfair that the major is so research-heavy, despite a pursuit in a more clinical/counseling side of psychology. The workload for classes is appropriate and the curriculum is wisely designed.

4 College Junior

Academics: Friendly professors and an intriguing curriculum numb the pain of a vigorous workload at Michigan. Professors are always willing to help in office hours and do their best to make even the most monotonous class interesting.

3 College Junior

Diversity: While Michigan is recognized for its diverse student body, it is clearly seen on campus that this "diversity" is still polarized. It is fairly rare to see a group of students of different backgrounds associating themselves with one another outside of class.

Academics: Industrial Engineering is a tough major at Michigan. There is a decent work load but you will learn a lot. The advisers are great and so are the facilities. There are a lot of internship opportunities available.

Despite the occasional complaints about weather, students at the University of Michigan love their school. With its outstanding academics in conjunction with its remarkable athletics, Michigan offers a perfect college balance: a great education and a fun social atmosphere. It is not uncommon to find students sporting Michigan gear around campus, and if given a choice, most would choose the school over again. Students love that they can mold their school to best suit their individual needs and desires. Whether they are looking for academics, athletics, or social outlets, Michigan fits the bill: In addition to its highly-ranked academics, it has a highly respected athletic reputation, and Ann Arbor's atmosphere is one to be envied, consisting of restaurants, shops, bars, and much more. Michigan alumni are expansive in both numbers and location. Michigan's alumni network is one of the largest, with many individuals holding vital positions in their respective industries. Alumni love to return to Ann Arbor for visits and sporting events, often bringing their spouses and children. It has been said, "Once a Wolverine, always a Wolverine."
