3 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: you really have to search for the parties or get more involved on campus in order to find any parties

3 College Sophomore

Computers: the computer wifi is not good at all, it always signs you out and is very unreliable but there are a good amount of computers on campus mainly in the library

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: About average with most, however the Greek life pushes most of the drug use, primarily alcohol.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: Not much going on most nights.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The do a decent job. Primarily focus on parking violations, but otherwise very kind.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Standard, college town based garbage. A few local options which are good but vastly out numbered by the mediocre options.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: While very inviting, most students don't give Greek life a chance due to the fact most want to just graduate and leave.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Lots of great new equipment, just very out of the way on campus.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The campus shuttles are great and always running during peak hours.

3 College Junior

Weather: Most of the time weather doesn't affect the campus, but given it is primarily a commuter college, it can have an impact on traffic.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not many options, for on or off campus living.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Honestly the city has a very old feel to it. Most of the time, I am driving around, I feel like there are far more elderly people than anything else in Dearborn.

5 College Junior

Diversity: University of Michigan - Dearborn has a very diverse campus. Its a great place to learn about new cultures. The engineering department is pretty much white/Asian but the rest of campus is very diverse.

Guys & Girls: I've run into 5 different types of people of campus:

-"I don't care about you or anyone else here."

They come to school, don't talk to anyone, get in and out as quickly as possible. They just care about school, work, and their relationships.

-"Greek life is awesome and everyone loves me!!!"

Always prancing around in cocktail dresses/suits and socializing at lame events

-"I'm smarter than all of you uncultured heathens and I'm just here to save money while I await my transfer to a real university"

Continuously talking about how they're waiting to get into Harvard, Yale, U of M Ann Arbor, etc. They cry when they get a 99% on a test.

-"Hi"

People who actually socialize with other students without being annoying about it and focus on school too

Academics: I think the school is underrated. The first thing everyone says is: "Well it's not Ann Arbor." Okay well that's true. Ann Arbor has better academics...there I said it. However, that doesn't mean you can't get a great education here. I've met many wonderful professors at the school. I would even say one professor could work at an Ivy League but actually prefers to stay here. Of course there are boring professors but I'm sure that's true at any school. The academics are interesting. The school is just challenging enough so you're not bored but you're not overwhelmed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I did feel very safe on campus. However, I heard about stolen cars, stolen laptops, and stolen bags/purses. After I heard these stories, I became a lot more cautious about keeping an eye on my stuff.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I was very bored at the school doing my prerequisites but I guess that's normal. As soon as I started the classes required for my major, I started really enjoying school. The professors are excellent! I mean of course the school isn't considered an ivy but the professors are pretty top notch. I had a lot of interesting professors. I enjoyed the classes I took for my major.

Majors: I enjoyed my internship. However, even though a lot of planning and hard work went into the program, there are still a few issues to be addressed. I would split the internship class into two because I felt it was too big for a class that requires a lot of one on one attention for each student.

Local Atmosphere: It's not a bustling big city but it's not a small town. You can find stuff to but you have to look for it. I got the impression that most students went to school, went to work, and went home, so they probably love it. Oh yeah I met some guy from Chicago and some girl from Los Angeles at the school and all they did was complain that there was nothing to do. I mean really? Hellooooo of course coming from a huge city you'll be bored. My opinion is that it's not the most interesting city in the world but it's not the most boring either.

1 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Yeah they have parties in the University center but I've only seen them serve hors d'oeuvres...which is nice but it's not like a big dinner party or anything like that. As far as a night life scene, bar scene or anything like that I would place it at nonexistent. It's definitely not a party school.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Very small Greek scene. Also, they will deny this but they usually come off as acting better than everyone else. I always saw them prancing around in their suits and cocktail dresses at night with their noses in the air.
