Being at the University of Michigan has been incredible so far! There are so many diverse learning opportunities for students to engage in. I am mostly affiliated with the Music School, and being in that alone has been a tremendous experience. World class faculty and professional musicians are found in the school, and are an invaluable resource for guidance in our field. Outside the music school, there are many top rated programs that are featured in our university. Fields such as Engineering, Medical Field, and Psychology departments are among some of the best programs to be apart of in the United States and throughout the world. Being apart of a school with that kind of impact guves me more motivation and enthusiasm for my school. Plus, Ann Arbor is a great a college town, where the city and school are really integrated as one!

We have the largest stadium in the country for God sakes! Virtually the entire school (save for a few) actively supports the football team and many many students attend the games on Saturdays. Basketball and hockey are the other most popular sports (And the only other ones that students have to pay to attend). There is an insane amount of school spirit among the entire student body and faculty and the locals of Ann Arbor! There will always be people sporting their Michigan gear and will defend UM 'til they die. Despite up and down seasons from the basketball and football teams, the games are always well attended. Football is especially hype now that Coach Harbaugh has revitalized the team.

Michigan is constantly rated one of the best public schools among among the best schools overall in the country. And theres a good reason for that! There is an immense variety of classes to pick from and very little of them are "blow off" classes. Expect to take on fairly heavy to insane course loads each semester full of readings, quizzes, exams, and group work/projects. It is most definitely manageable if you put the time in to buckle down and study when it is necessary and there are plenty of resources and study spots to accomplish this. The professors are par none as they are almost always internationally recognized members at the top of their fields of study that have accomplished some amazing things
