2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Freedom is worth it, but the process is a headache

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Good food, high prices, stray from Main Street.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Could be better, but just follow the rules.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Try different parties out, not all are Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply on TIME and a lot- doesn't hurt to try!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Depends on the location, variety is needed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are enjoyable, social, but respectful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshmen are guaranteed housing but it's not required. Living and learning communities are really worth the extra effort to apply because you get to live on central campus your first year. Most, if not all, dorms have lounges within the buildings for meetings, studying, hanging out, etc. Housing process for rising sophomores can suck for some people because you are randomly assigned a date and time to register for a room. A lot of people move off campus starting sophomore year but there are a couple of dorms that accommodate upperclassmen.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus and am not in the near future

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of places to eat that aren't only franchises. However, still a good number of good franchises

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is like any other school in my opinion. In the engineering school though, the Honor code is taken very seriously.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: You can eat healthy very easily and can make the meals good. However, just sticking with the entrees can get boring.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice all around with good facilities. The housing process can be a little bit of a hassle but in the end it works out. Living on campus, you have the possibility of living far away from your classes but you know that going into it. The bus system is really good too.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: The party scene is okay. I suggest that you only go if you have the time and will not be behind on your work. And please drink responsibly. Our school is trying to be a good example of partying while being responsible as well.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid process is tough, especially when they expect my parents to cover a certain amount when that is not really the case. Having to take on loans is stressful, but you have do what you got to do.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The food is okay, but affording a meal plan is hard.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is a very competitive and difficult process for lots of students, especially those on a budget. It definitely goes to show that the more money you have the easier it is in finding a great location and a quality apartment. Not to mention, the realty company throughout Ann Arbor manipulate the market as such that they are allowed to raise their rates per year by around 11%. Rent is very expense, and the only means of reducing rent is by seeking lots of roommates.

While most of us students want to focus on our studies and succeed academically, the stress of housing distracts us from achieving a good college experience.

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."
