This beautiful environment is an awesome and inspiring place to grow as a musician. Not only do you get to meet others who have similar interests, but you get to mingle and make connections with people with diverse interests, backgrounds, etc. The weather is lovely and often enjoyable and the forests that surround the University gives the whole place a warm atmosphere. This is a place where you also get to explore smaller interests and other hobbies that you have. Although it is generally a large campus, it’s very refreshing to be able to have the opportunity to walk or possibly bike to get around. The faculty and the students are some of the nicest people I've met.

I knew coming into U of M that I was going to have a blast. Everything I ever thought has been blown out of the water. Being here has been the most fun, as well as the most challenging, time of my life. The work is hard, but it's amazing to learn about things you're passionate about. Everyone works hard during the week and parties hard during the weekend. Football games are everything you've ever dreamed of. Come here.

It's a great all around school, everyone who goes here can have an enjoyable experience regardless of what they want to study or what they like to do in their free time. There's a lot of school spirit and people are mostly nice.
