Administration: Pretty Laid Back – Marijuana is decriminalized in Ann Arbor, so as long as you aren't technically on campus the penalty for getting caught with week is a very small fine. Recently smoking was banned in public places in the state of Michigan, but it does not seem to be too strictly enforced here. As far as MIPs and Alcohol go, the guest police speaker will even tell you at orientation that as long as you aren't acting like an idiot you won't get in trouble. I have heard of people getting MIPs though and have heard that the fines are astronomical and it is strange since it is cheaper to get a fine for smoking weed. Basically, as long as you keep yourself from bothering anyone else, you will stay out of trouble.

Athletics: Sports Are Huge – Saturdays in the fall are devoted to football. It's an all-day event, with people partying before, after, and during games. Plus we have the Big House, the third biggest stadium in the world.

Local Area: Diverse & Fun – There is so much to do in Ann Arbor. You can watch indie/classic films at either the State or Michigan theaters or take a bus to a more major theater. There is a great variety of restaurants, offering cultural foods from middle-eastern to thai. There are solid 18 and up clubs. Ann Arbor itself doesn't attract big name bands, but The Ark usually has a solid line up of bands that come.

Off-Campus Housing: Very nice apartments with many amenities. Prices are a little expensive. Regardless, still MUCH cheaper than dorming.

The staff are trained professionals that are willing to help you with anything you may be having difficulty with. In Library Cafes and dozens of group study centers you will be able to meet and learn effectively.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They're Pretty Reasonable – It's an expensive school, there's pretty much no way around it. But financial aid is willing to try and do everything in their power to help make paying for school as easy as possible.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I Love It Here! There's enough people so if you don't get along with some, there's still thousands of people that are potential friends. The campus is great and the city is great and I love my classes and even though it's kind of pricey, I wouldn't trade this school for anything. I love being in the best college marching band and being a part of such an awesome tradition.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus Police Rock – There have been plenty of incidences, but we live in the city so it's to be expected. I always get an email and text message update as soon as there's a problem and it always has great tips for staying safe-the police here are awesome! Safety is very important here.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: FAFSA It up – Just by doing FAFSA, you're financial aid process will be much easier. Once your FAFSA is turned in the UMich Financial Aid staff will provide you with financial aid opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Weather: A majority of the time it is extremely cold in Ann Arbor and snows a lot as well. Although it makes it inconvenient to go out for fun, there are things to do inside as well. Those who maintain the campus are very good about salting the sidewalks. Classes are relatively close to each other and even if things are far away the buses run from convenient places.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: A Diverse Population – I have never been in a academic environment comprised of a throughly mixed ratio of races. Along with these races there are numerous religions at UMich. The student body and faculty support these races by having student organizations, performances, conferences, and events that reflect these races and religions, as well as sexual orientation. These events and organizations are open to all students despite their views which provides a extensive array of educational opportunities and a path towards acceptance of all.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Great Resources – The University of Michigan definitely has a very challenging curriculum, however there are numerous resources in order to make courses easier to cope with. The professors make themselves available for students for further assistance on the course. There are also several other buildings that specialize in helping students.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Difficult for Out-Of-State – They give a lot of merit scholarships, especially in LSA, but I know of a lot of out-of-state students who are paying full tuition.

4 College Freshman

Technology: access is available in every building. Occasionally, the printers get clogged, but everything else is good.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Not available like one would like it for international students

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: All in One – A huge school that can be made small, everything is available and each person will find his/her own niche. Great academically, socially, great sports (usually) and great school spirit

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Variety of Food Choices – Theres a variety of choices in regards to types of food and hence in costs, theres a bit of everything, most places are easily accessible, student discounts arent as available as one would like

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: obviously i wish i would have gotten more financial aid. Michigan is an expensive school. i was able to get a small academic scholarship, so that helped a little. the whole financial aid process in general is just pretty difficult i think.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: you can bus around ann arbor pretty easily. there are always buses going around, and with your M card you can ride for free. it is pretty tough to get anywhere outside of Ann ARbor for a good price, though. YOu need to take a cab, which can get pretty expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: the dining here is pretty decent. i have allergies to gluten and dairy and i can almost always find at least one thing on the menu that i can eat, besides the salad and sandwich bars. it's not the most excellent food in the world, but it's definitely not bad.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I recieved a lot of scholarships from my home town but it's pretty difficult to get a scholarship from the University of Michigan. Mainly because they don't give out scholarships directly from the University, many are from U of M alum. However, I did receive a loan through FAFSA if that is associated with the university?

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."
