5 College Sophomore

Computers: There is no doubt that you are able to find a computer in practically every building at the University. Not to mention, students' preferences to computer softwares (i.e. Mac or PC) are always met. In addition, a student is able to find many programs/applications available for their studies/entertainment in the computers.
Basically, you can make it throughout all four years of college without ever owning your own laptop/desktop.

Athletics: Michigan stadium is the biggest and greatest capacity in the entire country. We have the greatest football record by far, which says something about the level of skill as well. Everyone knows that Michigan Wolverine spirit is HUGE, even off campus. We have most likely the greatest school spirit in the BIG 10 and the biggest fan base in the country as well. The facilities are unbelievable and cost millions and millions of dollars. The football games bring in about 10 million dollars per game.

Greek Life: Although it has been researched that about 20% of the student population is in Greek Life, this small number does not hold them back when it comes to community outreach. The Greek Life systems is great because while they try to build brotherhood/sisterhood and networking, Greek Life also seeks to do community service and fundraising for public utility.

4 College Junior

Majors: Michigan is known for its strong psychology department. The major is pretty easy to fulfill however, there are very few credits. There is a wide and diverse variety of classes to choose from which is nice, and many professors with research who are always looking for RAs.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: University of Michigan athletics are the best. We have the most school spirit, and all of our teams perform very well!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Athletics at the University are remarkable. Fan support is always available and this goes along with the school's spirit. Although most of the student population does not consist mostly of athletes, there is involvement through intramural and recreational sports. I want to add that the competitiveness is very explicit. When trying out for a sport, you may find yourself lucky to be in a team or not, but not being on a team should not let students down because there is always involvement in sports, even at the noncompetitive level.

Academics: I am in the School of Nursing here at U of M, and I think it is an exceptional program. It is very difficult, but I think it provides students with the knowledge needed to become successful in the medical field.

Academics: There are many different schools and programs here at The University of Michigan, which makes it a great place to learn and find out what you really love.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are restaurants all over campus that offer a variety of choices, and they're affordable as well!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The campus is sufficiently huge and it's located nicely within the city so that students may enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city at night. The buildings and departments are nicely scattered throughout the campus and walking is not a hassle, unless you live on North Campus, that is. :)

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Academically, the school cares a lot about how its students learn to write. There is an extremely strict plagiarism policy and classes for freshmen who are behind in writing, making sure that everyone can write a good level essay for their upper level classes. If any student is caught plagiarizing, they automatically fail the course, and also must see the dean of students.

3 College Junior

Majors: Its an interesting program and with climate change affecting us more and more, its important to know about. With all the changes in the environment, I don't anticipate having that hard a time finding a job.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Michigan is huge so its hard to get around but the busses are pretty good!

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: it has amazingggg school spirit. going to football games are the best!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Dining halls are good. not gourmet but taste good. Mojo is the best.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most professors are extremely smart. It can be tough to form a personal relationship with some of them, though, because they have so many students and also conduct their own research.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Difficult, but there are many resources available.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is definitely crime in Ann Arbor, but the police send us reports of every crime thats happens on or around campus. I've never felt unsafe.

Off-Campus Housing: There are definitely some nice houses and apartments but some are really gross. It's really about what you're willing to pay for (although places like Landmark and Zaragon are not worth the money). Generally, closer to campus means pricier.

Diversity: I definitely know people from all kinds of backgrounds. I think there is a student group for pretty much any interest you could have.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is a great town. If you're here in the summer, things like Top of the Park and the Art Fair are amazing. The rest of the year, sports dominate the weekends. Main street is also really fun all year round!

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I had a great room (large, had a sink, view of the Law Quad) in South Quad but most of the freshman rooms on the hill are pretty small.

3 College Senior

Weather: It gets cold in the winter but it's amazing in the summer and fall.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: All the dining halls I've eaten at have a wide variety of choices and the food is good. Some places on campus are much better to eat at than others which you'll find out quickly, but any place you choose will have anything you're in the mood for. The dining hall in my dorm isn't open on weekends so that's sort of inconvenient, but I can just go to the dining hall 3 minutes out my door instead.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system took me a little while to figure out, but with the help of some friends, it's really easy to take. Bus stops are conveniently located and I always get a seat, but on the weekends, the buses rarely run which is a pain. If you're at the library or out late at night, you can always call a free ride service that takes you back to the dorm which is really useful.

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."
