4 College Freshman

Academics: one of the best public schools in the world, however there is a lot of work

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was placed in a dorm that was further than most dorms on central campus (Oxford) and ended up loving it. Wherever you are placed, it is made by the people that are in the dorm and you could have an amazing or terrible time anywhere. (But you will probably have an amazing time)

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: there are different types of people everywhere. however, most guys are not looking for relationships

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i almost always feel safe on campus, no matter what the time or place

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: rush was not fun at all, but being in greek life is one of the best things to have happened to me. it is a really easy way to find a niche at such a big school and the opportunities and people are endless. plus, it is so much fun.

Off-Campus Housing: many places to choose from--whatever your preference is you will most often find what you are looking for if you start looking early.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: if you want to go out--you can. i participate in greek life so i usually went to frat parties, bars and tailgates. however, many of my independent friends found parties with ease. on friday and saturday nights there are usually an abundance of open frat parties. it is usually easier for girls to get in than guys though.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: best food i have had is in ann arbor. you can't go wrong at 99% of places around the campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: depends what dorm you are in, my RA and DPS was extremely lenient on most things, usually only got mad when there was too much noise. i know some people have gotten in trouble for alcohol in the dorm rooms, but that was only when it was in clear sight. be safe and smart and you wont have any problems.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the dining halls have respectable food, but they are often so crowded that you cannot find a seat or you have to squeeze a chair into a full table. I have found that East Quad does has this problem, not too mention they have very limited hours of service.

Campus Housing: Getting a room is not difficult, nor is it difficult to choose a roommate if you do not want to "go in blind". Trying to change our room, however, is almost impossible.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Ann Arbor real-estate prices are ridiculously high, but the added freedom of an off-campus apartment and proximity to parties is well worth the cost.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You can almost always find a party if you try hard enough. There are week-long celebrations of St Paddy's Day and Halloween, the U of M tailgate scene is the best, and when the weather turns nice, there are day parties EVERYWHERE.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor has SO many great restaurants that offer a wide variety of price points and types of food.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration has skewed priorities. It does not do enough for lower income students. Also, they are more strict about plagiarism violations than sexual assault accusations.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are not a lot of scholarships available here, and the student body is very large. The university could do more for it's students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Student housing is guaranteed to freshman, and there are plenty of dining hall options.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From chic apartments, to affordable flats, to funky co-ops, to beautiful vintage houses, Ann Arbor has it all. I have yet to move off-campus, but from what I heard, it's a breeze. Tons of options AND it's often cheaper than living on-campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are parties every single weekend, literally everywhere. Often times I am faced with choosing between three or four parties! So many options for every different type of partier. I was wary my first day of college coming in as a freshman during welcome week. I went to a frat party with a group of people I didn't know and got trampled by drunk people. Don't let a sucky first experience like this get you down!!! Throughout the year, I have attended SO many cool parties with WAY cooler people. There is a place for everyone here.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor is the most happening place I've ever been to in terms of restaurants. Just in my first year, I've been to at least 10+ restaurants and I have loved ALL of them. There is never a shortage of off-campus dining options. Ann Arbor is a food MECCA!

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never had any issues with the administration at my school thus far.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Filling out the CSS profile was a pain, but it would have been necessary for any school. I ended up getting a large sum of money from the university, about half of my tuition was paid AND I was granted various loans. It certainly helped, but I am hoping to receive more aid this year. College is expensive no matter where you go, but U of M is WORTH IT!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: We complain about dining hall food because that's what we're supposed to do, but really, we are spoiled! The food is high quality, always varied, and really delicious. The dining hall staff is helpful, and the dining halls are beautiful. I'll get snapchats from my friends who go to other schools, and it looks like they're always eating cheeseburgers and white, limp salad. At Michigan, every meal is five star meal!

Campus Housing: I live in East Quad because I'm a part of the Residential College (a living-learning community). The place literally feels like a hotel. Everything is renovated, the dining hall is amazing, there are music rooms, a café, and beautiful lounges. It's also really close to all of my classes, restaurants on South U, and parties on weekends, so it's never a far walk. The same goes for South Quad and North Quad -- both are incredible. I often hear complaints about some of the other dorms on the Hill and on North Campus, but West Quad will be brand-new is opening up in fall of 2015 in order to accommodate more people!

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."
