4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are libraries all across campus that make it easy to find a place to study. Most of the libraries are quiet and you can always get your homework done. Plus there are cafe's in some of the libraries so you don't have to walk to a dining hall.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Minor Differences – Males and females are more likely to congregate with others of similar sex for conversations, but they seem to cooperate and to have fun with each other well enough. Males are more likely to be loud and boisterous, but that varies with age and type of housing. Particularly for Michigan football, females can match that energy. Females below the post-doctorate level often infrequently wear dresses or skirts. Jeans are a favorite for both sexes.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Co-Ops and Apartments – Rates for apartments do not seem to be much different than for the campus dormitories. However, off-campus apartments would provide their inhabitants with more liberty. Dormitories are often closer to campus than most off-campus housing. The housing cooperatives seem to provide an optimal combination of low pricing and liberty, albeit with some chore obligations.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Concerns About Theft and Sexual Assault – For the past few years, incidents of sexually related crimes and theft have steadily increased. Thefts are usually the most common, often perpetrated by small groups of two to four individuals. Sexually related crimes have not involved rape. In response, the university increased efforts for campus security to patrol grounds and raised awareness for means for personal security. The vigilance in campus security seems to translate into greater strictness with alcohol consumption, but the campus also seems to have fewer incidents since the normal school year began.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Competitive, but the Selection Is Wide – Because it's such a big university you can literally study anything and there's such a wide selection of courses to address your interests to. Problem is also because there're so many people the competition is crazy.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: GO BLUE! What? We're the school-spirit school.
Michigan Wolverines are the best and school patriotism is high. Just wait for football saturdays and you'll see...

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Liberal Campus – Mostly white kids, a lot of Jewish AMerican Prince/Pricesses. Search 'Pursuit of Jappyness" on Youtube and you get a pretty good idea of what it's mostly like. But there are also asians.. quite a lot of asians. Not so much for blacks and latinos. People are pretty accepting but be prepare to stick with your own kind

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Authentic Korean food at reasonable prices. Eating there feels like you're swept off the streets of Ann Arbor and placed right in the hustle and bustle of Seoul.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Ann Arbor has combined both a college town with a major city. There is always something to do in this city and it is easy to walk to whatever you need to do.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: UM Study Abroad – There are so many great study abroad opportunities, just make sure to apply for scholarships from UM to pay for the program costs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Greek Life Is Minimal – Greek life is not very prominent at UM, but most students spend their free time studying at the UGLI.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Downtown Ann Arbor – It is a beautiful downtown area with events happening all the time year round.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Strictly Good Society – Everyone here does there best to recycle, smile, meet new people and opportunities, and help those in need.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: FAIRLANE MALL****** – The Mall is completed with various restaurants in the Food-Court!

5 College Freshman

Academics: Have Educational Fun by the Joy YOU Create! College's filled with competition by individuals and teams that care.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Computer Labs Convenient – Most people have laptops, but if you don't, it's entirely possible to use various computer labs all around campus (Rescomp at each dorm, The Fishbowl on Central Campus, and random computers at different university buildings. Students get 200 printing pages (unless they are engineers), which is too few and they get used up quickly.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

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.

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."
