3 College Sophomore

Parking: very hard to find a place to park; average cost $120 a month.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Nice but Expensive Food Downtown; Off-Campus Either Over-Priced or Old – Nice but expensive food downtown; off-campus either over-priced or old; if you want to find an apartment near campus, it's either very expensive or old and crappy.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety Medium to Weak, Health Care Very Inconvenient – usually takes about 1-2 hours to see a doctor at UHS; the quality was acceptable though
lots of campus alerts, even room invasion happens;but if you call DPS, they arrive in 5-10 minutes.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Great Bus System – The bus routes are good, and there's a lot of buses that keep going until the late hours. They've also made good apps for bus mapping on your phone.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The facilities are great, but they tend to get super crowded and loud during exam weeks. They also seem to be a bit socially segregated, especially with greek life. Engineers in the basement, various on the first floor, greek on the second, etc.

4 College Junior

Academics: Highly Qualified Professors – The professors had earned their degrees from very prestigious schools. Apparently though that means sometimes awkward nerds. They're smart as hell and teach very well but when you speak with them outside of class they seem to lack some social skills. At least this goes for the engineering professors...

Diversity: While the University of Michigan has many different people of different ethnic backgrounds, there are really only two races that are prominently represented in the student body. A majority would be Caucasian, with a very close second going to the Asian population. It's a bit of a campus joke that there are more Asians here than Asia. U of M students for the most part tolerant and accepting of all diversity, which is always nice.

Off-Campus Dining: Michigan's World Foods – The University of Michigan has more restaurants than anyone could possibly want to count, most of which are in the heart of Ann Arbor, a mere minutes walk from Central Campus. The massive variety allows you to pick from virtually any area of the world in any give price range. A $6 Chinese meal From Lucky Kitchen is really hard to beat.

Transportation: Buses Could Be Better – I wish there were more blue buses or they went farther on the weekend city buses do not go long enough on the weekend

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Michigan Has Everything – the classes have been great. the social life is amazing. ann arbor is the greatest college town

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I Feel Completely Safe on Campus – just like anywhere, i wouldn't walk alone late at night, but there are always plenty of people around to walk with or a cab to grab.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I was told if I attended the University of Michigan that the people there are snobs and have an heir about them. I am so glad I didn't listen to those people. I have found that not to be true. The students and teachers are very down to earth and very helpful and they don't seem to judge people. It is a very diverse school, so everyone seems to fit in. There is something for everyone there.

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – I love living in the dorm. Its still living on my own but you still have rules that you have to abide by. It is difficult however spending so much time with a person you don't really know, my roommate. I have had quite an adjustment getting used to my roommate. It is very hard at times but I am trying to make the best of the situation. Although it is very trying it is making me a stronger person. Part of the college experience I'm told.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Activities – The University of Michigan has so many different clubs and activities to get involved in. I have become involved in a few clubs. They make me feel like I am contributing to a worthy cause. I volunteered alot in high school and through the clubs I have joined at college I am still able to volunteer my time and feel good about it. It not only is helping other people, it is also helping me feel good about myself and who and what I am doing it for. Its my contribution.

Overall Experience: Diversity of Umich – I love the University of Michigan because there are so many options available to you whether it comes to academic life or extracurricular activities. You are able to make the University smaller through involvement in student clubs. There is also so much diversity on campus and it is easy to learn about different types of people and cultures. Lastly, i love Michigan football. GO BLUEEEE!

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking can be a hassle at times. Its almost always easier to just walk to places on campus. However, having a car is convenient when you need to go to the grocery store 15 minutes outside of campus. Having a car is really only plausible however if you live outside of the dorms for most of the time you are give parking spaces. Tickets I believe are too expensive. Police know that many people need parking spaces especially on football game days. Thus, I believe the ticket prices should be lower because there are many people who are forced to park in places that are not necessarily considered legal.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Good Mixture – There is everything to offer here and it is at the highest level.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of options and most Sophmores through Seniors live in off campus housing

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Most things are within walkable distance, school has ties with public transport system to make the large campus accessible. Supermarkets and malls could be a bit closer, but overall quite convenient.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is a little hyper sensitive about plagarism. you could get a failing grade if caught plagarizing and rules are very obscure.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: International Cuisine and Discounts! Pretty good, very international cuisine, quite reasonable prices except for downtown area
There is an annual restaurant week which is a discount week where poor college kids can go and eat in high class restaurants with a discounted price

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The Tradtional College – The college has a wonderful tradional feel to it. The director of Harry Potter had considered the Law Library because of the beautiful traditional buildings.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The student section at U of M football is outrageous! it is alive and full of fun. The team is pulling off a season of wins that will hopefully go to a Bowl championship. Our school spirit can be seen in the spirit wear, the face painting, and other accesories to the game.

5 College Freshman

Technology: Top Notch Connection – The computer available is everywhere on campus. If you have your own laptop, wifi is accessable on most loacations and classrooms on campus. We have tradition ethernet in the dorms, this is the fastest access options for this location. If you do not have your own computer or prefer a MAC or PC, opposite of what you have, there are many computer labs and individual computer stations.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love Ann Arbor – Not only is it great to be a wolverine, but the town is an excellent place to live. There are so many places to eat and there is always something going on. I can't picture myself living anywhere else while going to school.

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."
