4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Freshman/sophomores go to frats junior/seniors go to bars. You can ALWAYS find a party.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is always someone who wants to do you what you want to do. There are a million things going on everyday and night, so it's extremely difficult to not stay busy. Studentwise, there are your activists, frat stars, sorority girls, nerds, ravers, athletes, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a scholarship, and it seemed to me that it was not too difficult to apply for financial aid if you needed to. Every form you send in usually takes a couple weeks to show up as being received online because it is such a big school.

Off-Campus Housing: Parking in Ann Arbor is very difficult. Cars are only necessary if you will be driving off campus a lot. Some of the apartment buildings are expensive, but you can find a huge range of places to live surrounding campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather changes really quickly, so you usually be ready for a lot of changes. if you live on central campus you are close enough to run back and change, but not if you live on north campus. Every once and a while the temperature goes up and the sun comes out, in which case everyone is outside.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: UM wireless is very reliable and fast, I've never had a problem with it.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe at UofM, but we do get crime alerts time and again.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UofM athletes have great facilities. Regular students are forced to go to the very outdated CCRB.

5 College Junior

Academics: Leaders and best- that pretty much sums it up. No matter the program, there are great opportunities to learn and to get a job.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Michigan weather is unpredictable. Some days in November we have spring-like weather, with 60 degree temperatures, and sometimes the temperature drops as low as 30 in November!

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: An F for policy enforcement, but it's college and Michigan- a liberal midwestern town. People can be responsible, so the freedom is good. If you cant handle it then dont do it.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Whatever you want. bars, "clubs," house parties (for non-greeks), frat parties, apartment parties... if you cant find something to do then thats sad.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is AMAZING. It's safe, there's never a shortage of things to do, and it provides access to any resources you need. It is a part of campus but campus doesn't overwhelm Ann Arbor. It is the perfect college town.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love being in Greek Life! It is not a huge percent of the population but it is still large enough to feel the presence on campus. The greeks dominate the social scene on the weekend.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: The workout facilities aren't great unless you are enrolled int he business school and have access to their gym. The public gym is not air conditioned and is kind of dated, but they still have good machines to work out on.

5 College Junior

Computers: There is a combination of Macs and PC's, and many are available all the time.

3 College Junior

Weather: It gets cold but it drives you to go to the library and study. It's not distracting like at other schools.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a limited number of apartments within decent walking distance to campus and the rush to get these apartments/houses is brutal--you need to start looking for off campus housing within the first two months of school. That being said---the houses/apartments are generally very nice and with the new additions of landmark and west zaragon a lot more off campus housing options are becoming available.

Transportation: They definitely provide you transportation (the Ride and the Michigan bus), and it is relativlely reliable except on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm currently in the honors program and completing requirements to apply to the business school. Individually, the classes are not that difficult, but each one has a heavy work load and require too much time, so all together it's very challenging.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My major, PPE (Politics, Philosophy, and Economics), is a program that allows me to pick whatever direction I would like to connect the three subjects, there is a great deal of flexibility.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is definitely visible alcohol, especially on football saturdays. Otherwise, during the week things aren't too bad- I do not see that many hard drugs but they exist.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The registration is alright, the workload is not too difficult. The library is often loud and there is not that many study spots, but there are a lot of ways to meet with GSI's and a math lab ect

5 College Junior

Majors: We have everything and they are all ranked top 10 or top 25

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."
