5 College Freshman

Nightlife: parties can always be found, especially if you know people. people are generally very friendly so it's easy to meet people in different places that can hook you up with parties. at frat and house parties, no one ever pays to drink it's very convenient. also, welcome week, there are parties on every corner every night of the week. it's the best week of your life

Greek Life: i chose not to rush because i like deciding what parties i go to but i have a ton of friends both involved in and not in greek life and we all go out together. it is easier to get into frat parties if you're a girl than a guy, in which case you generally need to be friends with that frat. being a girl geed though is a great time and you don't have to join a sorority to party at all

Campus Strictness: the police officers around campus will pretty much leave you alone unless you're being obnoxiously loud or belligerent. just a note for avoiding MIPs, don't EVER walk down the sidewalk with a solo cup, you are almost guaranteed to get mipped. Also, don't sit down on the sidewalk even if you're just tired. otherwise, if you are smart, you'll be fine!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: as the dining halls get renovated, they become much tastier but overall the food is decent. the cookies are always to die for though.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: there is a strong hook-up culture here but many people also have long-term relationships as well. personally, i think it's more fun to go out if you're single but it really doesn't matter.

Athletics: GO BLUE FOREVER. game days cannot be beat; the football tailgates are an unreal experience. sneaking into the Big House to stand on the field is also a rite of passage ;)

4 College Freshman

Majors: i am not officially in the chemical engineering program yet, but engineering as a whole has been a great experience so far. there are always advisers prepared to help you with whatever you have a question about. the workload is tough, but i find that school is much more interesting when you're challenged and it's not impossible if you put the time and effort in!

Off-Campus Housing: most students move out of the dorms after freshman year due to the very limited options for upperclassmen but off-campus housing is generally a lot cheaper than the dorms as well. there are many places to live, but you have to start searching early to get what you want!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: so many places to choose from!

5 College Freshman

Facilities: you can't beat game day at the university of michigan, when the streets are rivers of maize and blue. tailgates on every corner and virtually anyone's invited. it's an experience i'll never forget

5 College Freshman

Facilities: michigan is the ultimate college experience because here we live out our motto of "work hard, play hard." during the week, we are very focused on school and everyone is looking to get the best possible grades, but on the weekends, many people go out and there are always parties to find. and you know if you meet someone at a party, chances are they're a future doctor or engineer too.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: campus security officers patrol the dorms at night and check up to make sure no one from off campus is where they shouldn't be but there are often off campus crime issues that come with a city.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: ann arbor is the quintessential college town with plenty of places to eat, bars, and convenience stores that can serve as grocery stores when you need them too. i love living in A2!

4 College Freshman

Computers: as an engineer, i often need access to computers with special software and there are always plenty to use in various computing sites around campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: my dorm is very old, but it is in the absolute best possible location on campus so it's a trade-off. but i have loved meeting people and i am good friends with most of the people on my floor.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: there are always different events being advertised around campus that embrace the diversity of umich

3 College Freshman

Weather: can be cold, but i am from michigan so i'm used to it. the beautiful days sure are much more appreciated though

5 College Junior

Majors: Facility and staff are very supportive

Majors: Haven't had an internship yet

5 College Junior

Computers: Everyone uses computers and brings their around, even though there are computers available for student use everywhere around campus.

2 College Junior

Parking: There's a lot of parking everywhere, but it is always taken and very expensive

Transportation: The school is so big so it seems a lot more practical to have a car but you can easily walk or take buses (even though it is inconveinent)

Local Atmosphere: Great, but tons of college kids

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Some dining halls in certain dorms are fantastic while others (Bursley on north campus) is disgusting with no variety.

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."
