3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: As long as you are safe about it and no one overdrinks or gets hurt, you can be pretty sure you'll fly under the radar. Be smart, stay safe.

Health & Safety: I really wish there was a small medical center on North campus-- when I am ill, the prospect of boarding a bus and riding all the way to UHS makes me even iller than i already was. Just maybe somewhere where I can take my temperature and get a strep test?

Safety on campus is actually pretty good. I've always been a skittish person, but I've never been approached unfavorably or with bad intentions. Safety officers in the dorms and in the campus make it a priority to keep people safe, and the blue light phones are everywhere you might need them.

Overall Experience: Professors in my field of study are always willing to discuss current topics both in lectures and in world news, and address any questions I may have with expertise and gusto. I am very happy to say that there is a significant alumni and research network available, and I will be taking full advantage of plenty of the internships and job opportunities that exist.

Overall Experience: Employer recruiting is top-notch. Career fairs can be a bit nerve-wracking and even hectic, but many fantastic employers come. Career prospects are good for most science fields- in general, but especially with a degree from this school.

Campus Housing: Things are generally very clean where I live, in Bursley. I enjoy the quieter atmosphere of North Campus as well, even though it takes me an excessive amount of time to get to some of my classes. People in Bursely are relatively social--a lot of them are engineers, so they often have a fair bit of work to do and keep to themselves-- but their field of study also lends itself to cool projects and events down at Pierpont and in buildings on North. The rooms are pretty nice--not too small, not very large. Lounges and study spaces are fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know very little about Greek life, but I have heard tell of not-so-great things happening. I will probably just stay away--better safe than sorry.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not very into athletics, but I have friends who compete/are involved, and they adore it. Student athletes are provided with many things and well taken care of. School spirit is generated massively at all games, though I would like to see some more support for hockey, particularly women's hockey. Overall, the sports culture serves to bring people together in support of their University and teams.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am happy to be able to continue my studies in geology and plant biology, as well as explore other classes that interest me. Things on campus are a bit far-flung, but the bus system is relatively competent, and with a bit of practice I can get places on time. You'd think that with so many people, getting to know groups and individuals might be rough, but the way the classes are and the way things are laid out truly is conducive to making friends easily.

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty safe. There is security in the dorms.

Campus Housing: I think that housing is overpriced, but the atmosphere is pretty nice and I like the activities that they put on in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: To me, Greek Life just seems like a party scene, but I don't know much about it and I know there are some professional fraternities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The fan support of the varsity athletics for the big three sports is huge, everything else seems to not be that important.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sometimes, everything at the school is a bit overwhelming, but overall I am glad I made this choice.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although the workload can be tough, that's what makes this school the best in academics because it pushes you outside of your comfort zone and expands your intellectual abilities. Although some may say this school is too large, that's what makes this school the best because there are so many organizations/events/people that will cause you to never be bored. Although some UM fans may be too arrogant, they believe this school is the best because of all of the amazing feats and accomplishments that have came out of the students at this school. Although the winters may be harsh when walking to class, I can't help but think about all the things that make this school worth it.

Health & Safety: I have never encountered any situation I did not feel safe in on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses offered at this school are very diverse and you can major in anything you want to. Each degree has certain requirements, but each allows you to take other classes outside your major. Professors are the best in their field and class sizes depend on your personal preference. There are some large introduction classes that are large, but people can elect to take smaller classes that are capped at 18 people if they choose.

Overall Experience: The recruiting at this school surpassed any expectations I had. Recruiters come to the school looking to hire Michigan graduates.

Campus Housing: It is so fun to live in the dorms and meet people

Overall Experience: University of Michigan is an amazing school

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have found some amazing aspects and opportunities here, as well as some courses and professors. More often than not, however, I feel like everyone's arrogance and rich attitude gets in the way. Professors are too full of themselves, and students think they're untouchable and smarter than everyone. Overall the community and atmosphere is incredible to be a part of, but only if you stay away from Greek Life and Ross.

Athletics: We call ourselves Victors. There are three sports that dominate the scene and fans, and overshadow other sports that have better records and less recognition. Facilities are typically top notch because too much money is poured into the athletics.

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."
