5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small Town, Big City Feel – Ann Arbor is a small place, but the culture, restaurants, and various specialty shopping areas afford it all the benefits of living in a big city. Feels neither like a tiny college town nor a huge city, though. Ann Arbor is homey, but always feels big enough and has enough possibilities to keep you loving all 4 years living there.

Off-Campus Housing: Most people at Umich leave dorms after their freshman year and choose to live in apartments, highrise buildings, or houses on or off campus. If you split a multi-bedroom house or apartment with a few friends, it can be far cheaper than living in University Housing. Many great areas to live are a bit far from Central Campus, though.

Transportation: Buses are always running they are very quick to pick up on time but does run late during the winter time

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – There are lots of emergency call phones available that are well lit. Police do patrol the streets during the night

5 Recent Alumnus

Technology: Dell and Mac – Students get to choose from using a Dell or Mac computer which is nice because a lot of students have a preference and are used to using a specific type of computer. They do have printers that list your name up on a screen which tells you what printer will print your documents. The network reliability is nice because it doesn't take long to log into a computer

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Lots of Variety – About 10 dining halls on campus and then with every meal plan there are blue bucks and dining dollars which can be used at multiple locations around campus including the union, and other convenient stores in dorms

4 College Junior

Technology: Trustworthy and Reliable – Speed of internet is fast. Many computers available in multiple buildings. We have 400 free black and white prints on campus. If you go over that amount you have to pay.

4 College Junior

Academics: Major Nursing Opportunities – University of Michigan offers acceptance into the Nursing school as an incoming freshman out of high school. This was a great opportunity because I didn't have to take any classes that weren't related to my major. I also got started with clinicals when I was a sophomore (now they are doing freshman year, winter semester) so I became very comfortable with patients. Having clinicals at University of Michigan hospital allowed me to have an inside foot into getting a nurse tech job, which has now made me more marketable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Work Hard Play Hard – The school, during the week, is all about getting work done and staying on top of classes. But it also allows time to de-stress and unwind during the weekends. There are many opportunities to relax when you need to, but the competitive atmosphere keeps students focused on academics.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Well Rounded – The campus is actually very pretty. It has an antique, rustic look to it. There are gyms available for students to use throughout the school year. There are more than enough places to study. Campus is always thriving with activities to participate in other than parties.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Worth It – Challenging curriculum - even the "blow off" classes cannot be blown off. Most classes require extreme dedication and hard work. Professors or GSI's are usually available for help, student-led study groups are offered through the university. There are plenty of resources to get help.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Use Resources – I have not yet had an internship, but I hope to find one for next summer. There are many resources at the Career Center for me to look into to find internships.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Research Oriented – The University of Michigan Ann Arbor is very research oriented. Most of the professors here also run their own research projects. If getting a PhD and doing research is your plan, this is a great place to be.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Well Rounded – The locals could be friendlier, and the campus could do without a few dark alleys, but otherwise, campus is really a vibrant, enjoyable place to be. The entire campus is a city of it's own with art museums, scenic walkways, Nichols Arboretum, a strip of stores including a range of restaurants (from college student-budget fast food to fine dining), convenience stores, clothing stores, and a two theaters.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It is very science oriented and the professors are very good. You have to volunteer a lot, particularly and the hospital if you can.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: College Town – Ann Arbor is a total college town for the University of Michigan. Even though it is just a college town, the university is very big so there are many things to do and many places to eat and chill with friends.

3 College Junior

Majors: Chemistry for the Professionals – The Chemistry major and U of M is very profession-focussed, preparing students for either a Ph.D. program or work in industry upon graduation.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Grad Isn't Just for Grad Students – There are several study spots in addition to the Undergraduate Library, including the Graduate Library and the Law Library, both of which provide next-to-silent study areas. During finals, however, most study areas are crammed with stressed-out students and I usually study at home.

4 College Junior

Local Area: College-City Feel – Ann Arbor, especially near and on campus, provides the quintessential college-town feel. However, a larger-city atmosphere is available just a few blocks away in downtown Ann Arbor

4 College Freshman

Majors: My Career at the University of Michigan – As I have not entered the University of Michigan, I anticipate that the program of Biology will be suitable for me. However, I want to apply to the Ross School of Business during my second semester of Freshman year. At the moment, I have different paths I am interested in which includes dentistry, optometry, and also a career in the business field. I am a little skeptical about finding a job in the business industry as there are so many other candidates across the world vying for jobs. However, the medical field seems a little more optimistic but I know it will be challenging and I am prepared to accomplish my goal.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Resources Produce Better Grades – The reason why I attended the University of Michigan is not because of the eleven National Championships their football team possesses, but because of the vibrant class atmosphere. Even though there are sometimes 600 students in one class, the class is also broken up into 25 parts of 24 students, so the college feels like a college within a college. Teachers are always willing to give up their time to help the students learn. Also, there are many resources available on campus which help the students study such as the Sweetland Writing Center which helps students write essays.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: What Is Close to the University of Michigan? Ann Arbor is a small, close-knit community which is walking distance from everything-the restaurants, the museums, the farmers market. It has also been selected as an All- America City Award finalist which is given to the city which models safety, low poverty rates, and contains many activities for the tourists and University of Michigan students. About a 30 minute drive is the popular metropolitan, Detroit which is home to Ford Field and Comerica Park so students are able to follow the Lions and Tigers. About a one hour drive from Ann Arbor is Lansing, home to Michigan State University. Students from University of Michigan rarely interact with Michigan State students except at football games.

4 College Junior

Majors: Helpful for Finding Fullt Time! I am currently participating in an internship with General Motors, and it has been a great experience. I have a full time position making over $23/hr. Internships are important for your future career because most employers value the prior work experience and see it as a sign that you can handle real employment.

3 College Junior

Academics: I love my school, but I am in an extremely difficult program. However, my professors are all extremely knowledgeable on their particular topics. They make themselves as accessible as possible, and are almost always willing to meet with students, especially once you get more into your classes geared towards your major.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Pretty Good! Overall Ann Arbor is the University of Michigan. There is plenty to do in Ann Arbor, both involving the university and otherwise. Sporting events, shopping, museums, and plenty of places to eat are all within walking distance either on Central campus or in downtown Ann Arbor. It is a college town so students pretty much run it and are treated great. There are always cultural events going on on campus and anyone who's interested is allowed to attend, both students and the general public! Parking is terrible though because it is hard to find and usually you have to pay, and parking tickets are EXTREMELY common. Besides that, it's great!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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."
