4 College Freshman

Transportation: There are plenty of cheap and easy ways to get around campus. Walking is the most popular, but the bus system is also a convenient option. While the blue buses are usually full coming from north campus, they are the best way to travel to and from north campus. The Ride (Ann Arbor buses) are also free to students who present their mcard.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The BIG HOUSE!!!! Football and basketball games are very important to U of M students. Students from all three campuses come to Ann Arbor to watch the team play.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs. You just have to know which ones to go to and at the right times because they fill up fast. There are few problems with M wireless (the campus is entirely wireless) but when there are problems, they are unfortunately very frustrating. For example, in one of my full lectures (400 students) there was limited wireless access and very few people could use the internet.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is very diverse, which could cause issues in other places, but not at the University of Michigan. We have the saying "expect respect." It means that you shouldn't have to worry about judgement or disrespect from anyone. You should expect nothing less than the utmost respect from everyone on campus. This saying applies to many situations in addition to ethnic/racial diversity.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are plenty of difficult (weed out) classes, but they are well worth it in the end. These courses prepare you for the PCAT and success in pharmacy school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor is the place to be if you consider yourself a "foody" or just like to try new things.

Drug Safety: You are free to make your own choices and no one worth knowing judges you for it.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics are a big deal here at U of M. Our athletes are highly respected and the athletic ticket office is a prosperous business as people find interest in all varsity sports here.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Youre going to have drug culture everywhere you go, but Michigan is not especially abusive

Campus Housing: Depending where you are it can either be really really great or really really awful

5 College Freshman

Academics: The leaders and the best in every way, especially competitive academics

2 College Freshman

Weather: Snow is obviously always a pain but university is very good about clean up and never canceling class

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Getting there may be inconvenient without a car but ann arbor is known for great cuisine.

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."
