4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe, but sometimes it may seem scary walking alone at night. I always recommend being in groups.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The environment surrounding the housing is amazing, but the rooms are not as roomy and spacious as I would have personally liked.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We all take great pride in all of our sports. Athletics are just one of the ways to show school spirit.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The entire school and extended community rally behind the football team for every game and it is considered an oddity if students don't attend or at least pay attention to the game. Everyone can bond over the teams experience and success.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone; students, staff, and faculty, is pleasant and helpful no matter the situation and the campus is beautiful. The majors are also structured pragmatically so time is not wasted on irrelevant credits not pertainent to the major or study. The only downside is communication with the University as a whole is sometimes vague or unclear.

Overall Experience: I chose the school because they gave me an a-maize-ing financial aid package. I fell in love with my decision, and I feel as if Michigan was were I was supposed to be all along.

Overall Experience: We have an alumni center and a career center. Both are great for building job skills, making new connections, and exploring new options. It's easily accessible and conveniently located. I find both to be a great resource!!

Health & Safety: We take numerous courses on sexual assault. Many men from my perspective don't accept no the first few times, so I have gained enough knowledge from the courses to understand how to keep myself or others safe in those situations.

Campus Housing: The housing process is a pain. They won't complete the housing requests of returning students before the incoming freshman come in. If you get one of the last days to select rooms, your best bet is to go get an apartment. They basically force you to move out after freshman year. If you are living in the dorms, they are very safe and very clean! Everything is great unless you want to switch housing.

Greek Life: As a member of a sorority, I found that my sorority was somewhere where I fit in. I wasn't pressured into joining greek life. I just was exploring my options and found the right sorority for me. There are different councils and different types of fraternities and sororities. Sometimes, as a greek, you have to hold yourself to a higher standard because of the views of others, but for the most part, life is great at Umich as a non-greek or as a greek.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The student body, the coaching staff, and the millions of fans have the same love and passion for the school. It's an overwhelming and a-maize-ing feeling. I wouldn't rather sit in any other student section.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere and the available resources makes it a great place to learn and live!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the University of Michigan have been great. I've been in a wide variety of classes within my first year. One had merely seven students, another over three hundred. My favorite class was an unexpected one, for a freshmen, I cannot recommend enough UC 154.

Overall Experience: I'll be honest, I haven't taken advantage of the career center yet. The alumni network is extremely vast and the number of people who that UMich for getting them their dream job is humongous.

Campus Housing: I lived in the nicest dorm last year, Alice Lloyd. It was beautiful. However, I did not get to know anyone on my floor. The housing process for returning students is such a hassle. There is so few space that I couldn't get into a dorm close to where I lived my freshman year.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Go Blue! That's all I have to say. The one criticism is that places like the CCRB are almost always packed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan is a great school, however, it is hard as a freshmen to know what you should take. They offer you a lot of freedom, I believe too much. If you're an LSA student your first year should involve taking a foreign language and getting prereqs out of the way. My advisor didn't help me with getting off on a good start.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe the University of Michigan is without a doubt the best decision I have ever made. I feel every student has a balanced lifestyle of working hard and also enjoying campus and Ann Arbor. Classes provide a challenge for students, and that is what makes being successful so much more rewarding.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the class variety, but labs/discussions really depend on how good your TA is at getting responses out of an unresponsive class. It's also a huge school, so lecture sizes are huge and it's very impersonal, though teachers are great when you talk to them in office hours.

Overall Experience: It depends on what industry you're going into, but there's a lot of networking and related events on campus.

Health & Safety: A lot of us heard about a string of sexual assaults in a parking garage near campus through a facebook group. We've never heard anything about it from the university. We do get alerts for robberies etc.

Campus Housing: If you get a new dorm, it's great - bathrooms are gorgeous, rooms are generally big enough, and study areas will be awesome. If you get a bad dorm, there might be cockroaches. How social your floor is just really depends. Some floors are great and stay friends until senior year. Other floors no one says hi to each other.

Greek Life: Greek life here is stratified with people in houses with better reputations constantly fighting to be seen as the "coolest" or "hottest". There isn't actually much of a difference between any of the sororities. We've had a lot of Greek life scandals recently with few consequences for some of the houses, though others have gotten kicked off.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Tailgating is fun. I don't care about sports, but most people do. The student fanbase is crazy about it.

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."
