4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't officially started at U-M yet, but I can say that there is a lot that the university does as a whole, including academic advisors, program directors, orientation leaders, current students on social media, and other parts of the community, that really work hard to make the incoming freshman feel at home before they even get there. My other friends are dreading move in day because there is so much that is unknown about what it will be like on their campus, but not me. I am literally counting down the minutes until I can call Ann Arbor my home.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Though I'm a junior now, l still recall how amazed I was at Michigan every single day of my freshman year. Ann Arbor is fantastic and everyone who has ever visited agrees. It has been the perfect school for my interests and personality. I've learned and grown so much. Finally I get an opportunity to do all the things I always wished I could in the safety of a college atmosphere. Also the alumni network is INSANE here! I know I'll be secure even after I leave the hallowed halls of campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The academics at the university are unparalleled. The professors are passionate and brilliant. The social environment is exceptional.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University of Michigan is a great school not only for academics but socially as well. The people that go to the school are some of the brightest and most caring people. The classes are challenging but that is what makes the university one of the best in the nation. The environment is great and there is a city feel yet it seems quite small. Great transition from high school to college. Everyone is just trying to find their place in the world and this a great start. The school offers great resources and there are many internships available for those who search.

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan has great facilities and a good atmosphere, however the professors don't live up to my standards. Students and teachers as well create an overly competitive learning environment that is at times detrimental and discouraging.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: have loved every second being on campus at Michigan. Absolutely beautiful campus with major history in academic and athletic achievement. Incredible pride on campus and a niche for everyone

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are things I love and things I hate, but there's nowhere I'd rather be. I feel a little out of place since my family isn't rich and I didn't grow up in Bloomfield Hills but I've generally been able to make friends easily. As a math major, I find my classes are a bit too challenging for what I'm used to (crappy public high school). However, I know making it through will lead to great job opportunities. It's a challenge, but I really do love this school.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do wish that I had looked a bit more into what the University had to offer and what I wanted out of a college experience instead of just taking the school's reputation and what my family wanted to heart. It is still a really great and respected university and it has a lot to offer but it can get easy to get lost in the crowd. Maybe it just isn't the right experience for me but I waited to long to transfer now.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have absolutely loved my time at UMich so far because of the endless opportunities for academic, social, and personal advancement. Majors, research positions, classes, and extracurriculars are abundant, and we have so many amazing resources available to us that really make for the best college experience possible. However, for such a great school with an elite reputation, there are many people here who do not take education seriously. It genuinely frustrates me to see people online shopping in class, interrupting professors' last words of the day by packing up their things to leave, and overhearing people's conversations about never doing the homework or skipping most classes to sleep. I have met many people who truly are the Leaders and Best and who work so hard to have the best education as possible, but there are too many other who take UMich for granted and do not deserve the good fortune they have to be at this wonderful school.

Overall Experience: I love the pride all the students and faculty have for my school. It really brings the campus together. I also like being surrounded by many people who take their academics as seriously as I do, but also like to have fun. Professors are very knowledgeable and there are so many opportunities for research, learning, and extracurriculars.

Despite the occasional complaints about weather, students at the University of Michigan love their school. With its outstanding academics in conjunction with its remarkable athletics, Michigan offers a perfect college balance: a great education and a fun social atmosphere. It is not uncommon to find students sporting Michigan gear around campus, and if given a choice, most would choose the school over again. Students love that they can mold their school to best suit their individual needs and desires. Whether they are looking for academics, athletics, or social outlets, Michigan fits the bill: In addition to its highly-ranked academics, it has a highly respected athletic reputation, and Ann Arbor's atmosphere is one to be envied, consisting of restaurants, shops, bars, and much more. Michigan alumni are expansive in both numbers and location. Michigan's alumni network is one of the largest, with many individuals holding vital positions in their respective industries. Alumni love to return to Ann Arbor for visits and sporting events, often bringing their spouses and children. It has been said, "Once a Wolverine, always a Wolverine."
