Drug Safety: I have not first hand known of drug use on campus. However, we get emails or text alerts of any safety concerns on and in the surrounding areas of campus. The campus is situated in a good and supportive community. Also if students have issues with drugs, there are many services and supports available to assist students with drug issues.

Diversity: There are more students of color than I expected this year. Also there are more men than I imagined there would be. However my college is still predominately white and female.

Academics: I am a Computer Science Engineering major (EECS department), and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the education I am receiving. My only complaint is that the workload can occasionally be a bit much and cut out extra curricular activities altogether for a semester unless you are very smart about your schedule. While I would not want to discourage anyone from declaring EECS, I do want to make sure that it is known ahead of time that the classes can be quite demanding and that dedication and effort are essential to majors in this department.

Academics: The academics here are great! The professors I have had all were very enthusiastic about their subject, and also very understanding as to what we are going through as students. They do everything they can to help you succeed if you put the effort in. The classes can be a bit rough, especially if you schedule certain classes together, but generally the advisors and professors try to help prevent this situation. There are also discussion sections to almost all larger classes, which encourages asking questions and a better accessibility to help with the subject.

Drug Safety: The drug scene is quite tame, especially for the size of the school. I personally have never been pressured to use any drug, alcohol included. There are times that the frat parties can get a little bit loud and rowdy, but from my experience the only people involved are the ones who chose to take part. Alcohol is fairly visible, especially on game days or holidays, but anything else is much more rare and even more rarely seen.

Nightlife: There are enough people here and enough places to go that any night of the week you can find something to do or somewhere to go with friends. There are a handful of 18+ clubs as well as 21+ bars, so almost everyone will be able to go somewhere if they feel like going out.

Campus Housing: Michigan is in the process of renovating almost all the dorms on campus, and they are going to be very new and nice with great amenities. Couzens, Stockwell, East Quad, Alice Lloyd, North Quad, and Mojo are good. There is a new policy where freshman get to live on Central campus rather than the dreaded North campus. The housing process is easy. It's cheaper to not live in the dorms though, but most freshman do. A handful of sophomores live in the dorms, but by junior and senior year, it's more common not to live in the dorms.

Weather: Bring a good winter coat. Winter lasts forever on campus, and classes are never cancelled due to weather. However, campus isn't too big so walking in winter is manageable. Once spring comes, everyone's spirits are lifted.

Diversity: Since Michigan is such a large school. there are many types of people on campus. Although the majority is white, heterosexual, middle class students , we have a very diverse and cultural student body. Political affiliation is split pretty evenly between Democrats and Republicans. The majority of religions on campus are Christian, Catholic, and Jewish. Regardless, Michigan students are very accepting of all students!
