5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You can tell that all of the professors here are just brilliant in their field. Sometimes for discussion sections of larger courses, the graduate student who is teaching it may not seem as qualified. Overall, the variety of courses is great and topics are so interesting. Some students complain about large class sizes, however this has not been bothersome to me at all.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Graduating with a degree from this university will open up numerous job opportunities. We have the largest alumni base in the world so the connections are endless and the rigor of the curriculum at the University of Michigan is well known.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have a number of resources at the University Health Services building on campus, and there is also a growing number of mental health resources. Outdoors on campus there is a blue light system in place so students can call campus police from walking essentially anywhere. Additionally, there are Safe Ride options that will drive you from one campus building (a library) to another campus building (your dorm) when it is late at night.

Campus Housing: I lived in Helen Newberry Residence. I did not request an all-girls dorm, however I was placed in this location. Luckily it was directly across from Angell Hall and the majority of my classes freshman year. I did make some great friends living in my dorm, however the rooms were very small and the building was very old.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a member of Alpha Phi's Theta chapter here at the University of Michigan. Although my social life does not revolve around my involvement in the greek community, I have had the opportunity to get involved with many Greek events on campus. Additionally, I've made incredible friends both within my chapter, in other sororities on campus, and fraternity brothers from our mixers. I especially enjoyed events held during Greek Week when the whole community comes together to raise money for various philanthropies.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Nothing beats a football Saturday in the Big House. I am a baton twirler for the University of Michigan Marching Band, so I am fortunate enough to have the chance to experience many of the sporting events from field or court level. With Coach Harbuagh transforming Michigan football this past year, I have seen student involvement and support for all things athletics grow immensely. It is incredible to be a part of such storied football program and to cheer them on while performing with the band.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the unique environment that Ann Arbor has to offer. The course I'm enrolled in are both interesting and extremely challenging. Overall, I would choose Michigan easily if I had the chance to do it over again. The school spirit is unbeatable and the people here have pushed me to be the absolute best and brightest I can be.

Greek Life: Greek life is not a big part of campus life. The students in Greek life are pretty much like non-Greek life students.

Health & Safety: Especially with havng lived in Fletcher Hall, it does not feel safe walking around alone. Everyday we get updates about armed robberies or some other crime being committed and they are all so close to or on campus. It's worrying.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes have been amazing thus far. They require a ton of work and a lot of my time, but I left many of my classes without being able to stop thinking about the material I learned. The professors make a great impact and teach in a highly interesting way.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't decided for sure what I want to do, so i have not taken these opportunities as much as I should, but nearly everyone I meet has a fancy internship or a business meeting coming up or some awesome opportunity for their career that this university has provided them with.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was not impressed with my housing assignment. I imagine living in a different dorm would be a much different experience. I was placed in Fletcher Hall which had no dining hall, no community center, and was way out of the way from my classes.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and I absolutely love it. It's almost like paying to have a job because there's so many responsibilities with being a member of greek life, but it really has taught me to pay bills, keep it classy, work hard in my classes, stay on top of my charty work, and build awesome friendships. It's not what people make it out to be. It isn't all parties and drinking and glamour all the time. Sorority members truly work hard.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is so much spirit on campus for our athletic department. People get very excited and the whole campus goes crazy over our football, basketball, and hockey programs especially.
