4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is an enormous research faculty here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The work ethic at this school is amazing

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: have loved every second being on campus at Michigan. Absolutely beautiful campus with major history in academic and athletic achievement. Incredible pride on campus and a niche for everyone

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are things I love and things I hate, but there's nowhere I'd rather be. I feel a little out of place since my family isn't rich and I didn't grow up in Bloomfield Hills but I've generally been able to make friends easily. As a math major, I find my classes are a bit too challenging for what I'm used to (crappy public high school). However, I know making it through will lead to great job opportunities. It's a challenge, but I really do love this school.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do wish that I had looked a bit more into what the University had to offer and what I wanted out of a college experience instead of just taking the school's reputation and what my family wanted to heart. It is still a really great and respected university and it has a lot to offer but it can get easy to get lost in the crowd. Maybe it just isn't the right experience for me but I waited to long to transfer now.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have absolutely loved my time at UMich so far because of the endless opportunities for academic, social, and personal advancement. Majors, research positions, classes, and extracurriculars are abundant, and we have so many amazing resources available to us that really make for the best college experience possible. However, for such a great school with an elite reputation, there are many people here who do not take education seriously. It genuinely frustrates me to see people online shopping in class, interrupting professors' last words of the day by packing up their things to leave, and overhearing people's conversations about never doing the homework or skipping most classes to sleep. I have met many people who truly are the Leaders and Best and who work so hard to have the best education as possible, but there are too many other who take UMich for granted and do not deserve the good fortune they have to be at this wonderful school.

Overall Experience: I love the pride all the students and faculty have for my school. It really brings the campus together. I also like being surrounded by many people who take their academics as seriously as I do, but also like to have fun. Professors are very knowledgeable and there are so many opportunities for research, learning, and extracurriculars.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was denied from my top choice school, which led me to go to a commuter college for my freshman year. I applied again and got in, but I do harbor some resentment towards this school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am very excited to attend the university. I have wanted to go here since I was a kid and just being accepted to the school was a tremendous accomplishment on its own. My mother and sister graduated from here and my father works there, and I have grown up around the school and the city of Ann Arbor my whole life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was so intimidated starting my freshman year at the University of Michigan. I felt like everyone was so much smarter and more cultured than I and it made me question and undermine my own abilities. However, I was quickly able to overcome this. I was surrounded with other students whom felt the same way and were warm/welcoming and ambitious individuals. I wouldn't change my college experience for anything. It has been the time of my life through the best and the worst. I have absolutely fallen in love with the University of Michigan. I have meet some of the most amazing people, have had some of the wildest and crazy adventures, as well as had the opportunities to chase my dreams and open my eyes and mind to some of the most amazing things the world has to offer. Michigan changed me for the better. Come join the leaders and best; I promise you won't regret it.

Overall Experience: I love it. It's a great place, and it actually challenges me.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you are not a business or engineer student or in-state, do not go here. It was a huge mistake which is why I recently transferred. Although I cannot speak of the entire student body most out-of-state students and many in-state students came off as arrogant and rude. It was certainly not a welcoming or diverse environment.

Campus Food: It's great but the cost is still too high for a meal plan, it is better to just eat wherever you want every day and not have a mealplan.

Campus Housing: Campus is full of intelligent people who are very friendly and understand the importance of education. The dorms are all remodeled and kept up to tip-top shape. Dorms are close and have great food!

Off-Campus Housing: I will be living in a house next year. It is a bit far but it is worth the hassle of getting on a bus and getting home to peace and privacy.

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."
