5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: BETTER THAN THE DORMS. COST LESS TOO!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus is pretty chill, I don't think a lot of people get in trouble...

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The frats play awful music, you know 80-90% of the people there and they're not even your friends... Small school- 3 frats...Pretty much a laughing stock after you go to a frat at State or Michigan. And if people aren't at the frat they're at O'Tooles, probably the lamest bar in all of Michigan. But hey, maybe you're into that? If not- venture outside the gate. Detroit has a great art scene, great food, rich culture, and a great music scene, you can pretty much find something for everyone-no matter what you're into. Why would you go to college in Detroit and never go outside the gates and really explore everything the city has to offer?

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Ladies in financial aid are super helpful and work with you to figure stuff out

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: NOT HEALTHY. NOT GOOD. NOT WORTH WHAT YOU PAY FOR IT.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Definitely not worth the money, its around 5k a year, you would save money renting a place somewhere close by. PLUS the dorms aren't that great, small, cramped, ugly... This is not a big 10 school, dorm parties are not fun or cool, the Frats suck but people here are so afraid to go outside the gates...If you wanna pay 5k to be a 5 min walk from classes, have access to "campus life" and terrible food that's your decision.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If it weren't for the scholarship, I would not be going here.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is very low quality.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus & would not have it any other way.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not safe unless in royal oak.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our school isn't very good at athletics besides basketball, and the university values athletes way more than they deserve.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you're involved in greek life, your social life will be fun. If not, it will not be fun. Most of the parties are closed for greeks only.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is cheap, but it is generally not safe. The farther you go from campus, the safer it is.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing is poor. The dorms are small.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a vast majority of restaurants in Royal Oak, Ferndale, and Downtown Detroit. There is every type of cuisine imaginable.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is expensive if you not on a meal plan and not always good. When it comes to the dining room food sometimes it's good it all depends on who cooks that day.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm life is okay I mean you have faster access to everything on campus. It doesn't take nothing but maybe 10 min to walk from one end of the campus to the other, plus you get to go take naps in your room during the day between classes. It is just very expense.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We don't really have crime on campus other then maybe somebody car get broken into. Even off campus we don't really have crimes other then somebody getting robbed. So I believe our public safety officers are doing a good job keeping us safe.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process was long but smooth. It's pretty hard to try to get time with your financial aid advisor. Sometimes the financial aid don't cover everything you need for it to so then you have your loans that sit there that you know you will have to pay back.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't really any apartments close to campus but the one that is a bad place to stay. The ones that are a little farther a pretty expensive. So it's like either you stay on campus, get an apartment with some friends little far from campus, or commute from home.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors know a lot about the subjects they teach so going to talk to professors are the best. The workload for some classes are hard to handle but for most classes you have a moderate workload. The library on the first floor is a good place to study if you don't mind noise or have headphones, the second floor and basement are the quiet floors, and the learning center is also a good place to study and get a tutor for help.
