5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Martha Cook, so it is not exactly the same as University housing. However, I am very satisfied with my dorm building. The rooms are marvelous, the social atmosphere is great, and I love the proximity to central campus. I wish that the cost was lower, I don't necessarily think I am getting my money's worth, especially in relation to the food, but overall I think that it is a great place to live.

Greek Life: Many of us have mixed opinions about Greek life. There are a lot of sororities/fraternities that do great things for the University and the social atmosphere. However, it seems that they get overshadowed by the few that are only concerned with partying.

Overall Experience: This school challenges every aspect of my life. The curriculum is challenging, the people I meet challenge my ideas, and overall it's a great community for personal and academic growth.

Campus Housing: This honestly just depends on what building you are placed in. If you live on North Campus and you don't have any classes up there then it is really just a pain. The Hill is nice but Markley's rooms are small and old school. South Quad is by far the best because the dining hall is also the best and the rooms are large. Honestly there are pros and cons to any place and its just learning to make the most out of what you are given.

Greek Life: I personally didn't join a sorority/frat but they still throw very fun parties. Non Greeks and Greeks tend to get along except when in the library because some Greeks have a reputation for being loud and obnoxious. Other than that, Greek life is great and is a great resource to find a smaller community within the university.

Athletics: The entire school gets together on game days, especially for football. It is truly incredible how unified the student body gets when coming to support our team and there is no way to describe the feeling in words. With Harbaugh as the new coach, our football team is on the track for success and it is going to be a great couple of years. IM sports are also a big hit at Michigan, you don't have to have any prior experience with a sport to play IM and it is a really fun way to connect with new people and to try something new. Some people are competitive but some people do it just to have fun, it just depends on the team that you sign up with.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love it at the University of Michigan. The classes are challenging but there are so many different resources to help you succeed if you are struggling with something. The professors actually care about you doing well in the class, no matter what the size of the class is. I honestly can't imagine going to any other school and I don't want to because University of Michigan is truly my hoMe.

Overall Experience: Most of my classes have been great and not overly crowded. Some of the f the professor seem to be bias against certain races or if you disagree with the way work gets done. They only want you to do it their way.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students are overly competitive, and scheduling is a very difficult process. Sometimes i feel that the professors purposly make courses way more difficult than is appropriate.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Going to michigan definitely opens more doors than the average school, but they also don't go out of the way to help you, type pretty much on your own.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are everywhere, and students that are underage drink still. That's the reality of any college experience.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties late prevalent in Greek houses and clubs. If students want to let loose after some studying or a final, they have the option to do so.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Not one for partying, but there are many different venues to go to if you want to party. Our bus system is good at transporting students to different areas of the campus late at night. Sometimes the bus route is called, the "Night Owl"

5 College Junior

Diversity: There are a variety of students from different cultural and belief backgrounds. Many are from different parts of the political spectrum, there are many religions represented, and many different opinions on different issues.

5 College Junior

Academics: Professors are top rated here at the school, allowing students to get the best education they can get. Curriculums are good, specific with the goals that are in mind for the specific field. The registration process is straightforward for the most part, and it really gets into a competition almost because the university is looking out to seek the best and brightest of students from all around the country. Workload can be serious, so it is highly advised to always be on track with the syllabus, and be early if you can with assignments/projects. Study areas that are popular are anything in the sciences, engineering, and the arts.

Health & Safety: I'd say overall I feel safe within the campuses. From time to time there might be a crime, and students are notified of it via email. There are many students on campus, and we have campus police that are one phone call away if anyone sees anything.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I take a variety of different classes because of my degree. I take a mixture of music performance classes, music education classes, and school of education classes. My professors are at the top of their field and offer a variety of ways in helping students. In the music school, there are now courses offered for students that talk about music business related topics, that will help musicians become successful financially in their art. Class sizes are regular sized in the music school, but can get up to 100-150 in musicology lectures.

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."
