4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Everything You Need – We have three campuses in University of Michigan - Ann Arbor: South, Central, and North. Central campus is where everything is including CCRB (recreational center), over 5 different libraries (each one big enough you'll get lost in and if I'm not wrong, UM has one of the biggest libraries in the states), boutiques, restaurants, and many good coffee shops. Basically everything you need. I haven't shopped or gone off campus for eight months. It's a university town in the central of Ann Arbor. We have our own on campus movie theatres. Also, UM - Ann Arbor is known for our cultural events which includes poetry readings, art exhibitions, parades, film festivals, restaurant week, and many many second-hand bookstores etc. It's a big school, but everything gets incredibly small as you get to know more people and places.

Drug Safety: A fair amount of people smoke weed. It depends who you hang out with though. I've never had any problems with anyone trying to force me to do drugs. Alcohol use is more popular.

Campus Housing: Dorms are very convenient on Central Campus. West and South Quad are my favorites. The cost seems a little high but you are paying for convenience. It's a fairly easy process to get the room you want.

Athletics: UofM is world renowned for its sports. Football saturdays are the best, any sporting event is filled with spirit and you're bound to hear our fight song, "the victors," multiple times. Going to any sporting event is always fun!

Technology: Computers are available in general in certain areas, it is good to have a personal laptop to take notes, and do work in your dorm room. WiFi is good.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I feel that the university is fairly average when it comes to policy. There are specific things, such as plagiarism, that the university takes particularly seriously.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of off-campus housing options. Some of them are not as convenient as on-campus housing, but pricing is comparable if not cheaper. I do not have specific experience with off-campus housing, however, so do not have any insight into landlords.

Technology: Easily Accessible – Computer labs and printers are easily accessible and in most residence halls and libraries. Unfortunately, the can be crowded. For this reason, a personal computer and printer are helpful. Internet reliability and speed are also good, and there are very few sites on campus without wireless internet access.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They're there is you want them, but you can totally avoid that scene if you want.

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls at Michigan – all hookups here - not too many relationships girls dress like jap's (jewish american princesses) - leggings, louis vuitton bags, etc guys dress like typical college guys

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: So Much to Do – There is sooo much to do here. So many different clubs and opportunities that at times it can even be overwhelming. Just take a deep breath and don't be afraid to explore.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I Mean, Its Michigan, What Can You Expect – Soo the winters are pretty harsh, but manageable. When it gets warm its beautiful and everyone is really happy. In the beginning of winter the snow is pretty and the cold doesn't bother you that much, but eventually it gets tiring. Also, school is never cancelled. Literally. Never. However, the unpredictability of the weather adds a little spunk to your life.

Campus Quality: There are 3 gyms and they have really good hours. Sometimes machines are full, but its free for all students. Also, there are lots of libraries to go and get your work doe. There are also places to go that are quiet and places for talking.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Large Greek Community – The Greek community at UM is relatively large and there are many different options available. There are multicultural and professional fraternities and sororities in addition to the traditional "social" IFC and Panhellenic fraternities and sororities. Many freshmen rush and find their place in the Greek system, but many also choose to deactivate after living in their respective house second year.

Athletics: It's Great to Be a Michigan Wolverine – Michigan students have a TON of school pride. Be sure to get season football tickets freshman year, even if you don't really love football. Everyone goes and the dorms are absolutely deserted on game days. The student section is SO MUCH FUN!

Transportation: M Go Blue (Buses) – Buses are part of most Michigan students' experience. If you live on North Campus or are an art, architecture, or engineering student, you will need to take them regularly. Buses usually run fairly regularly but face some issues with overcrowding.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Unless you live on North Campus, you will not be parking anywhere close to your dorm. There is no parking in Ann Arbor. Unless you need to drive home regularly, do not bring a car.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Lots of Variety, Average Quality – Dining is pretty much average. Dining halls have lot of options but the food is definetly cafeteria food. Retail options like Markley Hideaway, Victors at HDC, or Bursley Blue Apple offer more options and a place to spend you dining dollars. Campus favorite cafeterias are North Quad, Hill Dining Center at Mosher Jordan, and Bursley. If you're looking for more options in vegetarian or local fare, look to East Quad.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a good religious diversity but not a lot of race/ethnic diversity. As much as michigan is a more diverse school than others, it is still pretty white.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: although the cost can range to cheap to really high, the food is generally really good and reasonable. Although there are definitey more asian-style options than anything else

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."
