5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Accepted to all school I applied to

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus environment is very welcoming and you feel proud to be a Wolverine! The academics are very highly ranked and there is a lot to do in the college town of Ann Arbor.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was denied from my top choice school, which led me to go to a commuter college for my freshman year. I applied again and got in, but I do harbor some resentment towards this school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am very excited to attend the university. I have wanted to go here since I was a kid and just being accepted to the school was a tremendous accomplishment on its own. My mother and sister graduated from here and my father works there, and I have grown up around the school and the city of Ann Arbor my whole life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was so intimidated starting my freshman year at the University of Michigan. I felt like everyone was so much smarter and more cultured than I and it made me question and undermine my own abilities. However, I was quickly able to overcome this. I was surrounded with other students whom felt the same way and were warm/welcoming and ambitious individuals. I wouldn't change my college experience for anything. It has been the time of my life through the best and the worst. I have absolutely fallen in love with the University of Michigan. I have meet some of the most amazing people, have had some of the wildest and crazy adventures, as well as had the opportunities to chase my dreams and open my eyes and mind to some of the most amazing things the world has to offer. Michigan changed me for the better. Come join the leaders and best; I promise you won't regret it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loves the football games and school spirit

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love it. It's a great place, and it actually challenges me.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you are not a business or engineer student or in-state, do not go here. It was a huge mistake which is why I recently transferred. Although I cannot speak of the entire student body most out-of-state students and many in-state students came off as arrogant and rude. It was certainly not a welcoming or diverse environment.

Campus Food: It's great but the cost is still too high for a meal plan, it is better to just eat wherever you want every day and not have a mealplan.

Campus Housing: Campus is full of intelligent people who are very friendly and understand the importance of education. The dorms are all remodeled and kept up to tip-top shape. Dorms are close and have great food!

Off-Campus Housing: I will be living in a house next year. It is a bit far but it is worth the hassle of getting on a bus and getting home to peace and privacy.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party life is pretty great as long as you know where to go. I love partying with friends!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is alright but it can be expensive. I do not like to waste too much money on things like that.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Security is great and some are very nice. The rules are reasonable and make sense so no need to fight against it.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got great financial aid and it helped me a lot since I do need the help! This year I did not get as much but I still got help. Tuition does increase which is not fair for some of us students who cannot afford it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It was great at first but then it became the same thing over and over!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing can be a bit too much since I lived in one of the most compressed dorms. The dorm was not always very clean but it was full of new people to meet.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The university of Michigan does its best to provide the best policies for its students to thrive and prosper

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Michigan has a good reputation with providing some of the best financial in the state, and covering all need-based aid.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of people prefer to live off campus because its so much cheaper than living in the dorms, plus the added freedom is amazing.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene on campus us one of the best. The parties are the best way to let loose and be yourself. The best parties are thrown at the top-tier frat houses but those are sometimes hard to get into.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor is the best place for off-campus options. The selection is vast and amazing, and not too expensive for students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is usually good, South Quad is the best place to eat in my opinion. The menus are usually open and change and their are always plenty of options for all types of students. Dinning dollars and Blue Bucks are the best things ever! They come in handy when you have those late study nights and the Union is open.
