4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Michigan is a very safe campus. Alerts are sent out by the campus police if there is an issue.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Michigan has a bus system that is dreadful if you're left waiting forever. Other than that, it's obviously a great system to get around easily. The stops and routes become very familiar easily.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not drive on campus, as most freshman.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Michigan has the best varsity sports around.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Honestly, drugs and alcohol can be easily avoided if that is something you do not want to be a part of. However, if you are interested, it is not a difficult thing to come by. The best thing is that whether you are involved in it or not, no one cares or makes a big deal of it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great, and basically what you should expect for a higher than average dorm rating. Always clean, the university is big on recycling and any other earth-friendly type things.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife at Michigan is mainly run by Greek life. As a female, I can get into any frat parties without much trouble. If you'd prefer non-Greek parties, however, that can be trickier. Get to know older students and that won't be a problem, however.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ann Arbor is a wonderful city and the students of Michigan are fantastic. Everyone is very welcoming, and there are so many different types of people, it's an eye opening university. Great academics, great environment.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There's a wide variety of students at Michigan, so putting one label on the student body is difficult.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Buses aren't always on time.

3 College Senior

Academics: There's a fair amount of variation but specializations within the major could help.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The school fails to offer merit based scholarships to deserving students. I had above a 4.0 coming out of high school and know students with less need than I and a worse GPA that got scholarships.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I see nothing wrong with it. It is in line with my knowledge of other colleges.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a good variety but not a ton of student discounts.

College Senior

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life and have limited interaction with it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would do it all over.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Some places are too expensive for the quality of housing.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Quality of food and dining hall hours could be better.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The new renovations will help improve on-campus housing.

3 College Senior

Weather: I'm from the Midwest so cold weather does not bother me.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is a pretty big deal. i used to be in a top sorority, and loved it my freshman and sophomore year. However, by junior year, greek life moves away from frat houses and the social scene becomes oriented around the bars. In other words, greek life becomes pretty irrelevant to upperclassmen. Most of the people I know also grew pretty tired of greek culture after a few years. Hookup culture gets old, no one wants to get blackout drunk every night of the week, and everyone is ready to make genuine friends. Greek life doesn't foster that too well. Not to mention everyone in Greek life thinks they're superior to everyone else on campus, and that's simply not the case. It's also pretty expensive.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are some decent bars close to campus and there are some upscale restaurant and shopping areas not too far away. There are always things going on on campus through student organizations, and you can find out about them as they are advertised for in the diag.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Always something to do, bargains, deals, just read.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Get comfortable walking boots and a warm coat!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of places to live but hunt early! Even freshmen know to find a place for the next year by end of October if their first year.

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."
