4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Michigan students and staff members are very forward, liberal thinkers and have multiple programs set in place for sexual assault prevention, as well as support systems for survivors. Health and Safety are taken seriously here and I've never felt threatened in any way. Unfortunately, sexual harassment and assault is still prevalent, as it is on college campuses, but I don't think it's an overtly prevalent problem. It's hard to eat healthily, but the freshman 15 is easily avoidable. Walking around campus conquers the extra Mojo cookie you ate.

Campus Housing: I'm in Markley which is so in need for a makeover. Right now it's pretty hot out so the dorm is sooooo sweaty (no AC). The cockroach rumor is real; one of my friends woke up with one in her bed. Other than that, it's so much fun. In Markley everyone leaves their doors open and people will pop in and compliment your room or taste in music. At night, my friends and I just roam the halls and meet new friends. It's a really fun experience.

Greek Life: I just went through the rush process as a freshman girl. It was extremely stressful but worth it. I'm now in a house I can call my home for the next four years, and forever. There are always frat parties on the weekends and everyone goes. As a girl you can get in easily, but for guys unfortunately it's hard to get in without being in the frat or knowing someone in the house.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: This school revolves around football, which is a good thing and a bad thing, I guess. If you don't want to be involved in going to games, it's possible. But everyone is a die hard Wolverine here. School spirit is out the wazoo. Mostly everyone goes to the football games, other sports definitely aren't as popular.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: I've only been here like a week and a half but so far it's been great. Take this with a grain of salt though because it could definitely get worse. My professors seem really enthusiastic about their subject and eager to help students learn the material. Also, the students are really enthusiastic and intelligent. It's not hard to find friends even if you're not into partying or don't know anyone from high school

Overall Experience: People really respect the University of Michigan name, at least that's my perception. They have great programs in so many areas so no matter what you want to study you're gettting a world-class education. There are lots of opportunities for internships at many different companies. Michigan is the best university in the state, so companies like to recruit here.

Health & Safety: I feel safe, but I don't go out much at night or on the weekends. I guess I wouldn't feel comfortable walking alone at night especially around some of the frats but I don't really do that. There are means the University provides to help that problem like saferide and stuff, but sexual assaults do happen. Also, a lot of stuff gets stolen so you have to keep it with you as much as possible. I think that it's hard to feel safe 100% of the time as a young woman on a campus with such a strong party culture but only in certain areas and the university seems to be committed to preventing sexual assault.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The experience varies so much depending on where you live. I live in West Quad and it's great. The building was recently renovated so it's really clean and the rooms are relatively spacious compared to like, Bursley and Markley (the smallest rooms). The more recently the dorm has been renovated plays a big role. Central campus dorms are closer to classes than the Hill dorms who have a longer walk, and North dorms have a bus ride to get to central which sucks too. But social atmosphere best for freshmen at Bursley and Markley. So it really hard to gauge this for the whole campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in greek life and I don't go to parties so I literally have no idea but the frat houses by the Union are so gross and sketchy looking. Wish they were a bit further away from where I live, but it's not a huge issue. People like going to parties but I have no idea what it's like so, yeah.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses seem to be very informative. There's a large variety of classes, along with all sorts of class sizes. The professors are nice and try to help if students are struggling.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being a world class university, the University of Michigan provides a lot of good prospects, and there are a large amount of employers on campus. The career center works hard to try and help students find a career.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are posts set up everywhere, so students can call if they don't feel safe. A campus security person will go to them in that case. They email us anytime a crime happens on campus, and I haven't received an email in nearly two months. I feel safe throughout campus and the university works to keep that feeling.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are close to the buildings that people go to for classes, while the others always have buses to take them to class. Many of the dorms seem spacious and open. It's a little expensive, but it does include the meal plan, which is part of that cost.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't seem to be a major part of the campus. I've heard people talk about different fraternities and sororities a little, but they're never mentioned as a super important thing.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally don't take part in athletics, but I've seen many people take part in the sports. Almost everybody is fan of any televised sport, and school spirit is pretty strong, with a lot of people wearing Michigan shirts on game days.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan has many resources and they try to help any student with whatever they need. The professors I've had are polite and understanding that their class isn't the center of the world. They know that we have other classes and will try to work with that so we can all succeed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Umich is very unique because of its cutting-edge academic research and integrated academic systems. Umich ranks top no matter what subjects. In addition, students have access to a lot of wonderful concerts and sports events.

Academics: Literally the only downfall of umich academics is the workload, and occasionally you'll get a bad professor, but otherwise the faculty and courses offered are fantastic.

Diversity: The University of Michigan tries very hard to orient freshman students with the ideas of tolerance and social identities, and as a white hetero female I have not personally experienced any discrimination, but umich is a PWI and the black students that I know avoid the white frat parties like the plague. In that sense, there is some aspect of division among races, but it's less of an issue of tolerance than one of a lack of ethnic diversity.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I think marijuana use is pretty casual and decriminalized here, especially with Hash Bash taking place every year. No one is going to make fun of you for not participating but it's not hard to find people who do.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel sort of safe. There are groups and centers for assault victims. Its ok I think.

Campus Housing: The campus is fun to be in. There are tons of events going on. There's a lot to do because of that. Most freshmen end up on the North Campus, which is far away from most of the classes. Also

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."
