4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is truly something for everyone here. There are so many student groups on campus, it's impossible not to find something you'll enjoy doing. And people are very active in their clubs, so they're a great way to meet people with the same interests as you.

Facilities: Some of the buildings are old, but not to the point that they would detract from my school experience. Many buildings are actually quite beautiful- the new Ross School of Business is a piece of modern architectural art, and the Law Library was almost used to film Harry Potter.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: The major dining halls are outstanding - new, clean, tons of options. But not all dorms have a dining wall so you could have a long walk to get to one.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Ann Arbor is the PERFECT environment for a college campus because it is has the attractions of a city, but a town feel. Tons of restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, businesses, etc. and everything is very close together. People are extremely friendly and everyone has Michigan pride.

5 College Junior

Majors: I plan to have an internship this summer to get job experience.
I dont have any concern with getting one.
I have worked at a small manufacturing company as professional training so far.

3 College Freshman

Weather: SO COLD in the winter but I don't mind because I'm from the midwest. It just sucks trying to go out at night

4 College Freshman

Majors: Planning on going into business and the job safety is really good (like 90% of students get an offer in 3 months after graduating or have offers after the beginning of senior year).

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Love the resstaff, but every dorm has it's pros and cons. As a freshman you have little control over where you live unless you lie (or tell the truth) about medical or religious exceptions.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The ethnic and religious backgrounds of students are incredibly diverse. I would say political is pretty diverse, but there seems to be a lot of people either left or right wing and very few are in the middle.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Didn't get a lot of financial aid. I highly suggest contacting the OFA to have guidance because they will have advice as to how to go about the process at UMich.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I come from an area that is predominantly white so coming here and meeting people from all of the world has been amazing. I have meet international students from all over the world along with students born in the United States but with fascinating ethnic backgrounds.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are many bars in the area, but they often get very crowed. About 30% of the student population is in Greek Life, so frat parties play a big part in night-life.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The football games are unreal, the amount of school pride evident at the games is beyond amazing.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Very easy to find off-campus housing. Ranging from very nice apartments/homes to very cheap options. Parking is sometimes more difficult to find... I personally have to park my car one block away from my house, but it's not too much of a hassle.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The reason I choose UMich is because of its beautiful campus. Ann Arbor is a small town, yet has everything you could possibly need. This campus is big so I really enjoy just walking around, familiarizing myself with the area and admiring all the beautiful academic buildings.

Drug Safety: Michigan has such a diverse student body that you can associate with people who use drugs daily or people who have never touched drugs/alcohol. Campus security is not afraid to MIP you, especially on football Saturdays

Off-Campus Dining: There are honestly so many different types of restaurants that have such a variety of food! I had never had vietnamese food when I first came here, and within one week I had tried it at a restaurant and it was amazing. SO MANY DIFFERENT OPTIONS AND REASONABLY PRICED!

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Michigan definitely has it's ups and downs. Fall is BEAUTIFUL! All of the leaves change colors and it's not that cold. Winter is not very fun, however, because it is freezing and long. I have not yet experienced a spring in Michigan, but I'm sure the temperatures will be mild. It does rain a lot though so definitely invest in an umbrella.

Greek Life: Greek Life pretty much dominates the party scene at UofM. If you are not in a sorority it is hard to get into a lot of parties that are at frats because they are deemed "mixers" and are closed. Don't get me wrong there is still a lot of frat parties you can go to there will just be a lot of sorority girls there and you are running the risk of not getting in. Since UofM is such a big school only a small percent of people are actually in Greek Life, but that small percent is still a lot of people. The houses are beautiful, but the rushing process is definitely flawed and a lot of girls dropped out before they were accepted into any houses.

Majors: LS&A encompasses a ton of majors that are difficult to sift through at first. Once I choose Political Science, they provided a lot of different classes. Sometimes, the class choices are heavily weighed in one sub-field, but overall, the courses I have taken have been interesting and I have loved my professors.

Health & Safety: Lately there has been a lot of crime on campus, which is definitely concerning. Additionally, although the health center is convenient, it takes a lot to get quality help.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: At UofM there are a lot of people coming from different backgrounds. Having grown up in an entirely white community I have loved meeting people of different ethnicities and learning about their cultures. There are also a lot of different clubs regarding ethnicity, religion, etc. that you can join so no matter who you are or where you come from you can fit in just fine.

Parking: If you live in the dorms, you don't need a car. If you live off campus...you still may not need a car if you live on the bus line, but it can be nice...for off campus. For on campus, parking is a nightmare. It's very hard to find a spot and sometimes hard to find a spot and not get ticketed.
