3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Professors we good overall. Large class sizes made difficult subjects harder to absorb. Finding internships was your responsibility.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Some people love it and some people hate it. Undeniable that it plays a massive role on campus.

Health & Safety: Exposure to all the doctors you will need while on campus. Wait times and convenience are problems.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Unlimited options. If you can't find a major that interests you, you aren't trying.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Engineering is the way to go if you can stomach math at all. Your first paycheck after graduation validates this.

Overall Experience: The sum of the experience is greater than the parts. There were aspects I didn't like but looking back I loved the school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Standard college dining experience. MoJo is huge and has tons of options, other than that it's hit or miss. Breakfast options are usually strong.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There are lots of cliches and alot of the social scene is dominated by Greek life. It is largely predetermined which guys and girls you will associate with.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You really have to work to find an off campus house and you better start looking 10-12 months in advance. Landlords in Ann Arbor can be brutal.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Standard dorms. Don't get your hopes up. It'll do for a year or two.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Sports at Michigan will be important each and every day you are on campus from your first day as a freshman through the rest of your life as an alum. Get used to it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: It's an extremely diverse student body, almost to a fault. There is a definite divide between ethnic/racial groups on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really nice apartments on campus, but they're going to cost a lot more than your average off campus house.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Very Big, a lot of enthusiasm for sports, strong academic program.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: You can be as busy as you want to be. There are plenty of campus activities that you can choose to join or classes you can choose to take.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Honestly it depends on where you get placed. If you end up in one of the bad dorms your experience will be very different from the good ones.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Just schedule an appointment with the EECS advising center saying you'd like to declare. Very quick and easy.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: More difficult courseload, but its fun and many job opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. There are things like Saferide if you need to go home late at night.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Good Gym, Big on sports, especially football.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all pretty nice but there are some that don't have air conditioning and those are the most undesirable places to live for the most part. The best options are those that are newly renovated or have the best dining halls. The best places are any of the "quads" however South quad which is reopening this year won't have air conditioning but will still have plenty of amenities. Those places also have some of the best dining halls. MoJo which is in the Hill Neighborhood is also one of the best and has one of the best dining halls on campus. The cost of things aren't too high. If you have a dining plan, you won't need to spend any money really with the exception of the occasional trips to Walgreens or CVS. But there are other small fast food restaurants both on and off campus that are available.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Michigan is full of attractive and relatively...not attractive students. There aren't too many people who dress "out of the ordinary," but for those who do, they aren't judged or ridiculed for it. UMich has a very open and accepting community. There are plenty of hook ups and long terms relationships all around campus but there are also plenty of single people so the dating scene is always open.

Administration: For the most part, when it comes to alcohol, you will only receive violations or warning when you are being a nuisance and drawing attention to yourself. The police don't generally breakup parties too often but sometimes will be around or near the scene just to assure that everything is okay and that things don't get too far out of hand.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have the biggest football stadium in the country! The student sections at our football and basketball games are always the best and full of nothing of spirit. There are workout facilities for non-athletes on both North and Central campus, which is where anyone who is living on campus will be. Football Saturdays are huge, everyone is in Maize supporting the team and people from all over come to see our team play.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very rarely are there alerts of crime around campus and when there are, they are rarely violent. In most cases, they are reports of petty theft.

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."
