U-M Ann Arbor Student Reviews

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Perhaps more diverse than most universities. Many international students

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Campus is great. Museums, awesome buildings, endless study spots, and specific libraries.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are in rough shape--especially the freshman dorms. Upperclassmen have better options, and most dorms are in central locations

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's a tough school to get in to, but not the most difficult. It is reasonable, and the essay topics are not too difficult.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I do enjoy being a classics student at U of M. It is very difficult, and I spend 3-6 hours a day studying and doing homework. The curriculum is liberal, often too liberal for me, but even so the classes are good. There are many study abroad opportunities, research opportunities, and scholarships.
