4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You get what you pay for.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Excited to continue with my education.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's improving with updated dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's a college town... Drinking is a given.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but there are sketchy areas to avoid.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't agree with the Greek culture.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food has improved a lot in recent years. They have many healthy options!

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms have changed a lot since I lived in them. Most now are newly renovated and have new features. Also, the dorm location (Central, Hill, or North) have a bit to do with how the questions are answered.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: There are a few choices based on what you are looking for. Most are nearby and fun to go to.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is a very fun place to live. It is a small town, but with its location in Metro Detroit many things are within an hour drive. Ann Arbor is an artsy city with many unique things to offer.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: U of M have a huge focus on athletics. Football and basketball are especially popular, however all the sports are treated with similar reverence and admiration!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus administration is strict enough that you feel very safe, however they are very lenient and give the students room to breathe and just be student. I like it!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of guys here so it's impossible to give an overarching description. However, I would say the "average" guys here are fairly laid-back, love partying and having fun but also dedicate a lot of time to studying and work hard. "work hard, play hard" is the motto here.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security here is quite effective. However, there are still ongoing issues such as sexual assault and alcohol abuse, which I feel that the administration could make a greater effort in preventing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be very expensive, however good deals can be found if one searches hard/long enough.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Getting financial aid here is the same process (FAFSA) as at every other school, so I would imagine it's not much easier anywhere else. Here, however, tuition is pretty high so that may be a huge drawback for some students.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are always a ton of parties going on, on any given night of the week. The party scene is there but not overwhelming, meaning that one can partake if one chooses -- but it's not in everyone's face all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it so far! All of my professors have been wonderful. The classes are difficult but not unbearable. There is a huge variety of courses offered -- ranging from big lectures to tiny classes of about 6-10 students.

Academics: Academics here are stellar, all across the board. The workload is rigorous but manageable -- the professors push you to your limits, but in a good way. You accomplish things you never thought you could!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The program I'm doing (Biopsychology, Cognition, Neuroscience) is really unique and fascinating. The professors are all really helpful, and there are many opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Admission was reasonable, but definitely very competitive.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's a bit difficult to get an internship here.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity could be a lot higher.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school does much to ensure all students are accepted no matter the characteristics.

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."
