3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorm you end up in, campus housing ranges from spa-like to unbearable.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Anyone who has ever been to Ann Arbor on a football saturday would not even think about going anywhere else. Ever. This is Michigan, for God's sake.

Parking: I never need to park because the bus system is so efficient.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: This totally depends on who you surround yourself with. In my classes, there is tons of diversity. In my sorority, there is less.

Off-Campus Dining: I wish the food in Ann Arbor was worse so I would stop gaining weight.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Michigan is so big that it is impossible to generalize the student population. These generalizations would apply to subgroups of the students, like sorority or program.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I cannot think of a better place to go to school than Ann Arbor. The entire town gets completely decked out for game day and comes together to cheer on the best school in the world.

Transportation: The buses are great, especially for those who live on or have classes on North Campus. They arrive every five minutes, maximum.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am in the school of Art and Design.The unique part of my program is that I get my degree in Art and Design, not a specific medium like oil painting or photography. This way, I can take classes in a variety of mediums and really find what I want to do artistically. The work load is extreme: I often find myself having to stay in the art building while my friends in other programs go out and party. However, there is seldom busywork and the work that I am assigned has made me a better artist.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The University of Michigan is the best school in the world.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The School of Art and Design is the only program that supplies students with laptops. Students in other programs must bring their own to stay up to speed.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have yet to really help from health or safety services on campus. My only interactions with the police are when they are busting parties.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty of options for any budget. The "rich kids" typically live in the luxury condos on S. University: Landmark or Zaragon. These run at 1000+ per month. Other students find houses around campus or just off campus, which are all surprisingly nice for a reasonably cost (maybe 500 per month).

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Everyone goes to the football games at least once and the fan support and spirit is tremendous.

3 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: There were busses but not always enough. Sometimes the bus would be so crowded you would be smashed against other students, which can be a problem.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Alcohol was only apparent to me when passing by fraternity houses.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I loved living in the dorms, but the problem was when they changed the priority for choosing housing for the next year. Instead of allowing upperclass students pick a room first they gave us the lowest priority.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Lots of diversity in all background areas and everyone was basically accepted.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Although the menu was always filled with ethnic food that I did not want, they usually had a nice variety and kept replenishing the food.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I got into the program easily because I had the correct background and grades.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: There are parks and shopping nearby as well as plenty of athletic fields.

Parking: There are a few parking garages that would be nice to park in but they are permit only.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are way too many ethnic places or the same few fast food places.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was able to attend several different performances dealing with art, which the school really promotes. It was diverse and I got to meet a lot of different students as well as talk to many outstanding professors.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The undergraduate library is quite loud and makes studying difficult.

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."
