4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UDM has a huge variety of classes and professors are very nice. I would recommend looking up the professor before you register for their class. The teachers here are all friendly and want to know you and talk to you. They are very nice and helpful. Most of the classes are every other day. Unless you live in the dorms do not take classes that are later than 5pm. I highly suggest you go to every class and take good notes. Because missing a day in class messes up everything.

Overall Experience: UDM is apart of the 21.2 billion dollar grant from the NIH with Wayne state and Marygrove. They set up a program called ReBUILDetroit and I definitely recommend everyone to sign up and join. They give a monthly stipend of $720 and pay for your tuition in undergraduate, masters, and doctorate school.

Campus Housing: I am a commuter so it half the student population at UDM. Most of the students are commuters so it is not a big deal if you live in the dorms or not.

Greek Life: I honestly do not know much about getting into a sorority or fraternity because I am not in one myself, but they are very small groups and they seem fun. People do not care if you are apart of greek or not. Most advisers recommend students not to be in one until their sophomore or junior year.

Athletics: Since UDM does not have a football team, sports are not that well known. The most paid attention to sports we have is lacrosse, soccer, and basketball. No one really goes to the games unless you live on campus or play the sport yourself. UDM has a lot of commuters thats why most people do not attend the games. But we do have a very nice basketball court.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: University of Detroit is a very small school with a ratio of 12 students to 1 teacher which I love. My biggest class is 50 people. The professors get to know you and there office hours are very helpful. It is also direct admission so everyone is accepted into the program of their interests without having to wait until they fulfill their perquisites to apply. I am already in the nursing program and will be graduate in 4 years compared to other schools is takes 5 years. Their health majors are excellent. But everyone has 5 to 7 classes. To other colleges it is a lot, but it is definitely manageable.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public Safety is around but they could be patrolling much more closely.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a great school academically. Although I do wish that there was more to do on campus. It is small so it is easy to receive great opportunities.

Athletics: I see that many of the sports events are unattended by a majority of students, and it kind of sucks seeing because the athletes want to be supported by their classmates.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy coming to UDM. It's a small campus which allows you to know the names and faces of a lot of people. In my opinion, I think that it's a good thing that you know a lot of people on campus because there are many connections. Plus, you get closer with the same people over the years.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety on campus is not very helpful and honestly does not do anything to make me feel safe and secure on campus. There have been times where it has taken over 20 minutes for public safety to show up where they have been needed. The campus is not big enough that it should take nearly that long for them to show up where they are needed. In addition to this, they are not always very helpful and can sometimes be kind of rude. They could be much better trained in how to help students with various issues on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, many of the professors and courses are absolutely wonderful. However, there are several professors and courses that could use some improvement. Some of the professors are not extremely good in their field of study and occasionally do not do a very great job with teaching the subject matter. Similarly, some of the required courses seem a bit unnecessary. One example of this is the computers course that is required by the school. In this day and age, most people are quite educated in using a computer and I for one felt as though I really did not learn anything substantial from this course. It felt as though it was a slight waste of time.
