4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Large pre-req classes are typically very large with smaller discussion sessions. The TAs are usually good with helping you at all times but you need to make sure you dont try to show up the afternoon right before an exam. I am on a very strict schedule for my classes as an engineer so i havent had a chance to look at variety of classes but even engineering has electives you can take in the other schools. The classes get smaller when you reach more major specific classes and the professors i have had really are passionate and mostly patient.

Overall Experience: With Michigan being such a large and reputable school, we have hundreds of recruiters come year round from the smallest of companies to the largest. The alumni network is enormous and could be very helpful when making connections and finding jobs. It is also very easy to network with all the career center activities. If you go to the career office on a good day they can sit with you for hours helping you improve your resume and online presence.

Health & Safety: I feel safe most of the time when walking around alone but I would recommend trying to stay with people at all times at night. There have been several occurrences of robberies but mostly on off campus housing and it is a big town

Campus Housing: If you are placed in a dorm in central campus, you will be much happier than in north campus. Of course meeting people in north campus is still easy and it is convenient if you are an art/engineering student. The best dorms are south quad, east quad, and all the ones in the hill except markley. Markley is older but is known as more of the party dorm. They have great make your own pizza though. Housing process is easy and you get assigned depending on the questionnaire. Ive been told you can trick it so you can live in central, many people have done that. I would also recommend applying to a living community... looks great on resume, will learn about more opportunities, receive one on one help, easy to make friends, and you'll live on central.

Greek Life: There is a big division between greeks and non-greeks. Although there is a lot of stuff to do as a non-greek and it is still possible to be friends with greeks, the non-greeks sometimes feel like they want to be a part of a tight knit community like that.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The students are very involved in varsity sports, especially football. Game days are the most anticipated days of the year. The school spirit is wild and brings the students together. The wolverines are the best and are only getting better with Jim Harbaugh. The athletic facilities for the varsity players are amazing but the other facilities are not so great. Varsity players are also given a lot of preference and leniency when it comes to classes and grades.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although it is a very large school, the professors and TAs always have time to explain and are very accommodating. The classes are hard but mostly fair. The school spirit brings all the students together and there is a lot of pride. Ann Arbor is a fun and activity packed town. Like any other public state school, there is not a lot of diversity. Lack of diversity and the weather would be my only complaints. Being hispanic and living in a very latin place like Miami, adjusting to Michigan has been difficult but there are so many clubs and groups you can join to make friends easily.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the courses and the professors that come with them. There is a wide variety of course options and the professors are top of the line in their prospective fields

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus, sometimes I get nervous, but that is more a fact about being a woman and how the world emphasizes that we need to be careful at all times

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It may not be the ideal way of living (sharing space with so many people), but it is a great way to meet new friends and potential study buddies

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think that they can do some awesome things in the name of charity, but looking at campus after the frat parties leaves a very bad taste in visitors mouth

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football days are not to be missed! Not only do we have the biggest stadium in the nation, but the student section is always engaged in the game.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the University of Michigan, and have been given so many awesome opportunities to go abroad and work with the best of the best just because I am a student here.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had a really good experience so far with classes. Iv'e taken most of the gen eds for engineering and have for the most part really liked all my professors and classes. Physics 240 is pretty tough but definitely manageable.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Tons of companies recruit on campus during fall and winter career fairs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are a lot of resources available for victims of sexual assault. In general there is not much crime on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I lived in Bursley my freshman year. I had a great time, it's a really nice community despite being stuck on North Campus. The only problem was trying to go out at night and on the weekends, it's definitely more of a hassle but not really that big of a deal because the bus system is great. I'll be living in Stockwell my sophomore year. The housing process was fairly easy for me but know some people who had a hard time getting on-campus housing their second year.

Greek Life: I participated in formal sorority rush in the Fall and it wasn't for me. That being said I know a lot of people who found houses that they love so it really depends on the person and how much time you are willing to put into it. Rush is a long process and being in a sorority involves a lot of time commitment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The school spirit is unreal. By first football game was an experience I will never forget. So much fun. People not only love the sports teams but everything about the school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Honestly so glad I chose umich. Couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Football games are incredible.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are a very reasonable size and if they are bigger than normal, the professor make sup for it by utilizing GSI's as additional aides to students. The amount of different classes offered is immense.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Companies around the world automatically recognize this university as prestigious and suburb in preparing their students for the employment field. Finding internships and careers are easier than ever at this school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a very well integrated blue light system on campus. There is also an option of transportation to get home no matter what time of night it is, so students who are out late studying do not have to worry about walking alone at 3 AM.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in East Quad, which is easily one of the best (if not the best) housing option at the university. It's location is right next to the Diag in Central Campus and is close to all the life of the school. The dorms are huge compared to some other dormitories and the communal bathrooms are cleaned 24/7.
