Majors: Some are harder to get into than others but that's normal. There are many majors available and some flexibility which is nice.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I don't mind my specific program but I'm trying to get into a different one that best suits my needs.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had a hard time getting the amount of financial aid I thought I deserved. Also, the process was lengthy and a bit confusing. Not very many scholarships were offered to anyone besides people of color, which is not fair.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's usually expensive and hard to find but well worth it in the end.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love how different all the housing options are and how social some are. But I don't like the distance of some and I don't like the housing process.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol and drug usage are high and not particularly enforced.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are pros and cons to Greek Life here

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Could be better for such a big city.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a lot of school spirit in our athletics.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Workload is tough but worth it. Receive one of the best educations around.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I haven't had any problems but I know many people who get away with a lot of things.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is THE definition of a college town: it's hard to imagine the city without students in the summer.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs don't seem necessary and I only visit them in order to print something. If you have a laptop and a printer in your room, you really don't ever need to use a computer lab.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The academic strictness is largely left up to the individual teachers: some teachers will knock you down a grade if you miss a class and others simply don't care.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are a pretty good option... if you don't get stuck in one without air conditioning or on North Campus (if you don't have any classes up there). There's such a wide gap between the best dorms and the worst dorms that it's hard to generalize the dorm experience.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus houses tend to be far away and they all get rented 6 months to a year and a half in advance; if you're not on top of it, you will not get a house.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The alcohol visibility is only really pronounced on the weekends (in the frats) and on game day; the police never seem to do anything about the wild parties down on State street unless things get seriously out of hand.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I prefer eating off campus to eating in the dining halls, though it is more expensive and wasteful to always eat off campus if you have a meal plan

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is heavy in terms of reading (English majors tend to get a lot of reading) and the staff are very knowledgable.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't frequent "greek row" or any of the greek parties and none of my friends belong to any greek organizations so it would be unfair to judge how the rest of campus sees them based on my own limited experience.

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."
