Campus Strictness: I'd say that police at UM are pretty lenient. They usually don't arrest students for getting wasted on campus, and they usually don't go around breaking up parties unless neighbors complain. You can also get away with smoking weed in Ann Arbor with only a $25 fine.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: Tickets for minors in possession of alcohol are common, since being drunk constitutes possession in Michigan.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: Police are actually pretty cool about stuff. As long as you aren't being a complete fool, you're fine, although that seems to be a problem for some UM students. Not too many people get in trouble, as far as I know. Parties usually are just asked to keep the extreme noise down. Sometimes they will make people leave, but rarely.

Campus Strictness: Police and school administration have really cracked down on the Naked Mile lately, which I think sucks. It was such a fun tradition, and now it's pretty much over.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: Drinking is not hard to do, but I've had friends get in serious trouble. Drugs are the same way. It's a college campus, what do you expect?

Niche User

Campus Strictness: Ann Arbor has the most lax marijuana laws I know of. I've heard that possession is just a small fine. But if you're an athlete, it depends on your coach and if you're in season. Drugs are definitely out, but some coaches make you have a dry season.

Niche User

Campus Strictness: You can definitely get away with drinking in the dorms if you're careful. I've smuggled many a keg up the Markley stairwells.

Campus Strictness: Well, it's easy to get away with a lot, I think, but the University and the city of Ann Arbor have different laws and penalties. The University has to follow state laws since it's a public university. If you're caught on campus, chances are you will be treated differently than if you were off campus.

Niche User

Facilities: The campus facilities are top-notch, in my book. There is always a library open for you to study in if you need to get away from your room.

Niche User

Facilities: The gyms here are good. I work out on campus. The computer labs are good, although I really don't use them. The student center is really there to help with anything you need.

Niche User

Facilities: Michigan has an amazing mix of buildings, both old and new. With all of the construction and renovation on campus, our facilities get better every day. The technology and resources available on campus are second to none.

Niche User

Facilities: There is a lot of everything at UM. On central campus, there are two gymnasium facilities owned by the school that are nice. I think there may be some privately-owned gyms and fitness clubs in the city, as well.

Niche User

Facilities: The law quad is probably the most beautiful part of campus. It's like walking through a gothic courtyard. But, if you study in the Law Library's reading room, be quiet, because you can hear a pin drop! If you do happen to drop a pin, the law students might get annoyed and sue you in the near future.

Niche User

Facilities: The library system here is incredible. Michigan's libraries are among the largest in the world, and the collections are amazing. If you need something, you'll find it. It just might take you some time.

Niche User

Facilities: Overall, I would rate the facilities on campus as above average. There are some facilities on campus that are in desperate need of an upgrade. For example, the athletic facilities are a little shoddy, but even the outdated facilities provide adequate resources. Many of the facilities are state-of-the-art. The student centers and computer areas usually have the latest technology. The Business School recently opened a Financial Research and Trading Center that provides students with invaluable knowledge and instruction on research tools, and even simulates different trading experiences.

Niche User

Facilities: Angell Hall is so beautiful and very stately. When taking a campus tour, it's a must see.

Niche User

Facilities: Overall, the University recognizes the need for continuous improvements throughout the campus. However, more emphasis could be placed on extracurricular student needs, such as athletic facilities and student lounges.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities here are better than at many other midwestern universities. There are two main athletic complexes for students to use, so that's not a problem. The student center (we call it the Union) is large, and it's also a pretty famous building. The Union has a bunch of food places, a bookstore, pool hall, libraries, coffee shop, and much more. Overall, I'm really satisfied.

Niche User

Facilities: The research facilities on North Campus are absolutely incredible. They have to be seen to be believed. Wind tunnels, nuclear testing labs, audiovisual centers, you name it, we got it.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities are great here. A lot of the classroom buildings are very historic with ivy, wood, and the whole nine yards. Other buildings are state-of-the-art, brand spankin' new. Overall, UM provides its students with a very distinct learning environment.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Dorm food here isn't bad. I think the best dorm overall is Couzens, but the best dorm food is at Bursley.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Dorm food is dorm food, and it's no different here. East Quad is notorious for a lot of vegetarian dishes. There are Kosher meals somewhere on campus. West Quad and South Quad have great dining, and most dorms have some sort of after-hours café. West Quad is also attached to the Union, where you can buy things like Wendy's, First Wok, and pizza by using money on your M-Card.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I feel that, compared to other schools, Michigan's food can't really compete. It's pretty much just the basics here. There are no extra frills or specialty foods available.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food here is quite good. The best dorm food is in Bursley; the second best is in South Quad.

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."
