Health & Safety: As a young woman, I do not often feel safe walking alone at night, especially after a night of drinking. Reported crimes are committed multiple times a week during night hours. We need more security on campus. The university also needs to take sexual assault and rape more seriously. There is absolutely no reason to keep students who commit these assault crimes.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is extremely pricey, especially if you do not wish to live in a 9-person house. There are apartments available as long as you sign your lease a year in advance. Having the freedom is great, but the pricing and variance of apartment types needs to be worked on. There are four or five "luxury student apartment" buildings near campus even though it's unnecessary for college students to have a luxury apartment. We need more average apartments for real-world students.

Campus Quality: Campus life is a blast. Everywhere you go, there's something fun and new to do. Restaurants, coffee shops, and nightlife are conveniently located next to campus. The university has been renovating dorms each summer and will soon be renovating the recreational sports facilities.

Campus Quality: The inside of facilities are mostly renovated while keeping the classic exterior of each building. Walking through campus feels like walking through an Ivy League's campus. The Diag and the Law Quad are two of my favorite and most unique places on campus. The Law Quad is like Hogwarts and The Diag is the center of campus where everyone meets up, clubs hand out their advertisements, student life promo events occur, etc. If you want a quiet study space, go to the Law Library or Hatcher Library. The Nichols Arboretum is a lovely place to experience nature within Ann Arbor.

Local Area: What's wonderful about Ann Arbor is the mix of city and nature. If you're looking to shop, hike, get a drink, or observe wildlife, Ann Arbor has everything you need in one place. Large events occur year-round for all cultural interests. As a Big Ten school, sporting events are top-notch. The university is dispersed throughout the city, so the locals are aware and welcoming of the students in the community.

Greek Life: Greek life, aside from a select few special individuals, is for elitists. Sororities are for snobs and fraternities are for the sons of alumni looking for a party. Greek housing is made up of very large houses scattered throughout central and south campus. Greeks tend to present themselves as less-than-intelligent, thus creating a somewhat dumbed-down atmosphere in classrooms.

Academics: Friendly professors and an intriguing curriculum numb the pain of a vigorous workload at Michigan. Professors are always willing to help in office hours and do their best to make even the most monotonous class interesting.

Academics: I enjoy my major and its classes, but I feel that it is unfair that the major is so research-heavy, despite a pursuit in a more clinical/counseling side of psychology. The workload for classes is appropriate and the curriculum is wisely designed.

Diversity: While Michigan is recognized for its diverse student body, it is clearly seen on campus that this "diversity" is still polarized. It is fairly rare to see a group of students of different backgrounds associating themselves with one another outside of class.

Academics: The University of Michigan is extremely difficult if you are going to study engineering. The professors are tough but good, the work load will be a LOT and you will need to perfect time management. There are a lot of study aides available and options for tutors. There are a lot of study areas and a lot of private study ares you can schedule.

Academics: Industrial Engineering is a tough major at Michigan. There is a decent work load but you will learn a lot. The advisers are great and so are the facilities. There are a lot of internship opportunities available.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Many students place a lot of importance on what they wear to class. You will find that name brand items are important and people can be stuck up. Boots, coats and bags are generally name brand. Many LS&A students care about partying, while Engineering students don't party nearly as much.

Administration: The security guards that roam the dorms are often way stricter than they need to be, giving out noise violations even when they are not necessary. They don't understand how that may affect student's later in their academic careers.

Overall Experience: The transition in to the University of Michigan was a smooth one.

Health & Safety: While there are some safety issues, it is not really a problem. There are so many options for people to be safe.

4 College Senior

Local Area: There is a huge involvement with the town of Ann Arbor and it's residents. There are constantly festivals or restaurant weeks or other events to encourage involvement.

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of campus, with almost 25% of students participating. There are so many different fraternaties and sororities, it is likely you will ind a match. Some non-Greeks don't understand the Greek system but if you are in it, you will love it. The sorority houses on campus are gorgeous and in excellent condition. The fraternity houses appear nice from the outside, but are generally not as nice on the inside.

Athletics: The University of Michigan is full of school spirit, people bleed Maize and Blue.

Campus Housing: With the new renovations, almost all of the campus dorms are in excellent conditions.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There is a decent amount of diversity on campus, whether people see it or not. As an out of state and minority student, people are constantly surprised to find out I am Hispanic.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be easy to find if you start early. Even then, you are limited to either one of the extremely expensive apartment complexes, old not so nice houses, or old not so nice apartments. While many are located close to campus, parking is difficult to find. If you are not in one of the expensive apartments (Landmark, Varsity, 411 Lofts, Zaragon) you will be in an awful 1970's quality apartment and you will be paying way too much for it. Compared to other college towns, Ann Arbor has extremely high rent for extremely low quality. It is one of the worst qualities about the University of Michigan.

Off-Campus Housing: Most off campus housing is close to public transportation which is good

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."
