4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like my school a lot, but it is very expensive to live in Ann Arbor among other things.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I do not think that there are very many computer labs. I know that most students have their own laptops, but most students do not have their own printers and the computers at the library become very crowded when people go there to print things. Wireless is available in all of the university buildings and the speed is average. The cost of printing I think is a bit expensive.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I think the university does a pretty good job understanding that young people are going to find alcohol, drink and go to parties. The police and the university are pretty realistic, they just do their best to advise the students to try to be as safe as possible while doing it. They teach the students what kind of medical help is available to them if something happens to them or their friends, and tell them that they will not get in trouble for seeking help for each other.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have not yet declared my major but I know of several different programs for majors and I know that the academic advisors help guide students' class choices and help them discover internship opportunities and other educational opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Academics: University of Michigan offers a degree program in almost everything. The professors are all very qualified in their fields even if some of them are not the best teachers. The registration process is a bit chaotic and students do a lot of scrambling to get the classes that they want, but I assume that this is pretty much the case at any big university. Workload depends on which classes the student takes and how many of them. Compared to my high school (Cranbrook Kingswood), the workload is less. Popular study areas include biology, psychology, and engineering study areas.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is filled with awesome restaurants and shops and they are all close to campus. Downtown is filled with students and locals and there is always something to do.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really nice apartments available off campus; however, the nice ones are extremely overpriced when compared to apartments of the same quality in East Lansing and other places. Even low quality apartments that are close to campus are outrageously expensive and I would say that most are around one thousand dollars per month.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not hear much about Greek life, I just know that some of my friends have gone to the parties and have gotten drunk and have taken drugs. I also hear that people get raped at these parties so I have not gone to any.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I am not very sure about the strictness at my school because I do not live in school housing and I also do not do anything illegal or trouble causing.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: easily accessible athletic facilities, two main buildings on opposite ends of campus. a lot of variety for IM sports, easy to join. Varsity athletics are very fun and popular.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: some houses are run-down and others are very nice. housing is usually reserved for second year members

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: pretty standard. the office of financial aid is helpful

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: downtown Detroit is about 45 minutes away. Ann Arbor has a small town feel but still has options, it's best to have a car to access them

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: there are really upscale restaurants a few blocks from town, but there are also great local restaurants right on campus that are affordable and delicious

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: academics were superior and i feel that i had an incredibly diverse experience. campus life and athletics were fun and engaging

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: it was demanding, but there is a lot of support available and there are many professors on the forefront of neuroscience research on campus that are willing to share information with students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: a lot of very prestigious professors and many student-friendly professors who are willing to spend extra time if students reach out

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: free blue and maize buses, use student ID. many stops both on and odd campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: there have been a lot of renovations to dining halls, it depends on which ones you go to--older halls don't have as many options and aren't designed as asthetically

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: many counselors and supporting staff in all departments.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: great opportunities for research, both in the hard sciences and in the arts

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: large computer labs with up to date software and monitors. always tech person around, also small stations scattered throughout campus in each building

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Amazing weather in the fall and spring. Michigan summers can be hot and humid, and the winters are beautiful but freezing and harsh.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: A lot of free space on campus, when the weather is nice it is easy to find a great spot to sit near the diag. There is a variety of study spots that range from super quiet carrels and library spots to more social group friendly spots.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Drug use was mostly alcohol. I did not personally see any illegal drugs or hear of their use besides marijuana.

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.
