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.

5 College Senior

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

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Senior

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.

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.

Majors: Everyone knows Michigan is reputable, so they are pretty great at hiring our students for internships. Act quickly so you can get the best opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Would never change my experience or my major for the world. It is a major I am happy with working with, and the entire staff and faculty is happy I am learning. Easy to get careers and internships started because it is such a broad major that is applicable in many fields.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The only time you ever really get to check someone out is the one month of summer weather we have in september. After that everyone is all bundled up.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lived on north campus so had a rough freshman year. Am excited for sophomore year to start when I can actually experience Michigan for what it is worth.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Amazing education--why were one of the top 20 schools!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Interesting, insightful professors who really do a lot of research in their field. I always walk out of class learning something new, not just about the subject but also about the professor and the research they have done.

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."
