4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are always a ton of people on sight..
not unless its past 2AM.
central campus, generally speaking.

Its more creepy on north campus at nights, i don't know why there aren't any crime alerts up there.
its always down on central!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Gets old REAL quick.
some bigger dining halls are most preferred.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: many many bars to hop around.
many many parties to drop in n have fun in.

but gosh, clubs are bad.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the English department at UM. I've learned a lot about life through my classes here, not simply overanalyzing novels like so many of my high school classes. I'd really like to be a teacher of some kind in the future, perhaps at a parochial school; I don't think I'll have trouble finding the kind of job that I'm looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There are plenty of commuter lots, some of which are right near campus. I'm not sure how much permits actually cost, because I still don't have a car on campus (you really don't need one unless you live a ways away from campus). The Ann Arbor buses are great for going grocery shopping, even if the trip takes longer than it would with a car, because they're free for UM students. Parking in the actual city is expensive and adds up quickly, though parking is free on Sundays.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Outside of greek life it is kind of hard to find good looking girls. The typical girl here is not hot, but you can find a diamond in the rough every once in a while. People are very smart and friendly here though.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: We have many great gyms, courts, pools, tennis courts, fields, basketball courts, and anything you can think of. These are in okay condition, but our academic buildings are always in great condition, along with very clean bathrooms and showers.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I have never gotten in trouble because I have not done anything incredibly stupid. Many of my friends have gotten trouble with alcohol in their rooms or by being drunk. As long as you are quiet and are not making a scene the officers will not bother you.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are lots of computers available to use to but the wireless internet isn't the best. At times it's fast but it's not always reliable. Plus for some reason when I use my laptop on campus, the wireless internet, it freezes but never freezes at home. The

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races of students here. And most people can find someone with similar interest to theirs.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt in danger but students always receive emails about crimes that happen by the campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Public transportation is generally good, at least for both the campus bus system and the Ann Arbor city buses. Most people don't take taxis unless they need to, because of safety reasons, because the campus is right in downtown Ann Arbor and easy to navigate. Also, the campus buses run fairly late, for those living on North Campus and needing to get home.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: The diversity on campus is a reflection of its world-wide prestige. It has a high percentage of minorities and international students from all walks of life. Generally, everyone accepts the diversity of culture, religion, and other beliefs. Like most academic institutions, Michigan has a liberal flavor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is there for those who wish to participate. Largely, it is seen by non-Greeks at Michigan as a distraction from academics. For those involved, it can be engrossing; there is the potential to have great community, but it is a substantial time commitment. If you're serious about succeeding academically, Greek life is not a necessary part of your undergraduate experience.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I'm a grad student at the SPH. So far i've really enjoyed it. Workload is average, sometimes a lot sometimes not but managable. The school is pretty nice. The curriculum is well thought out.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: I love it! drinks are expensive but there are lots of options outside of the bar life too

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing if fine but expensive. There are lots of different options however.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: In my experience, financial aid is not the easiest to attain, especially for middle class students. However, in recent years there appears to be a decrease in the number of students who come from a low-income background. This may be due to the difficulty in attaining aid.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of off-campus food options in Ann Arbor. Definitely something to satisfy every taste. Price varies depending on type of food/restaurant and location (typically, the closer to Main St., the more expensive...). The restaurant scene is generally very hip and enjoyable.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: University of Michigan has a very good nightlife, whether you're a freshman or a senior. There are a variety of bars on campus that are open fairly late and many people go to. However, the bulk of nightlife stems from Greek life. Greek life is prevalent here, and there are always some parties going on for those under 21. Also, many older students and athletic groups will sometimes throw house parties, which can get packed but are extremely fun.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: My friends who look for housing have not had a hard time finding a place to live. However, the pricing for the quality of housing is a little extreme whether it be an apartment or a house.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The process of getting into Movement Science in the School of Kinesiology was relatively easy. It required an essay and a small application. I was a cross-campus transfer. The process of directly attending this program as a freshman may be a little more difficult because you are applying to get into the University of Michigan as well as Kinesiology. However Kinesiology loves taking Freshman students and it would probably be easier to get into this program rather than LSA.

College Sophomore

Majors: I am looking for an internship now. In my field, it's very difficult to find a paid one. However with the University's help, it becomes easier. My biggest concern is not knowing how to go about finding one. I know they are out there, but I have a slacking resume and not many connections. However, in order to become a Physical Therapist I need to find one

College Sophomore

Majors: My personal program (Movement Science in Kinesiology) is great. The classes are small, the professors are knowledgeable and get to know you really well. I was originally in the school of LSA undecided, and although its great for many students, it was large and overwhelming with too many options. The advisors rarely ever helped you, and you had to figure everything out for yourself. Some students love this, I however had no idea what to do and found it helpful to transfer into the school of Kinesiology. The advisors and professors are great. Its satisfying knowing what I am going to do with my life now.

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."
