3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life definitely is the stereotypical type, but also people are smart here, too.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: If you're really into the hardcore tailgating and "sports-is-life-but-so-is-school" culture, then Michigan is for you!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People have serious Michigan pride bordering on arrogance, but also there is so much to learn here!

Overall Experience: Ann Arbor just feels like a great place to be. So far every one that I have met has been kind and there is nothing that I dread doing because the people are so great. Being nine hours away from home isn't so bad when you don't spend the whole time homesick.

Overall Experience: There's so much energy all the time. Everyone is so proud to be a Michigan wolverine, it's great to be a part of it! There is a lot of challenging school work but in the end it's worth all the work.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Well I'm currently studying at the University of Michigan, which is known for its business and engineering programs. But I'm currently triple-majoring in Linguistics, Spanish, and Japanese. And I am constantly impressed by just how amazing our faculty is here. In almost every department, there is at least one professor that is a leading contributor in his/her field. I've taken several classes where the textbook that we use to structure the class was written by the professor him/herself.

I personally have never attended another school, but I assume that this is very atypical for colleges. And it's something that I take pride in as a Wolverine. One of our slogans here is "the leaders and the best". Now I will admit that I can see the pride, and perhaps the arrogance as well, in this statement, but I find it to be quite fitting. I came to Michigan because it's a university taught by the best, for the best.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the location as it's not too bustling, but somewhat not like a ghost town. My peers are amicable and I am challenged with my studies, which is actually enjoyable in a way.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan is a vast school with tons of resources that can improve the academic experience for nearly any student. The only major shortcoming I've experienced would be the lack of diversity. Considering it's large size, there's a rather low number of minority students, but there are several on campus organizations that seek to change this.

Overall Experience: Attending THE University of Michigan has its advantages and disadvantages. They don't call us the Leaders and Best for no reason. You have to work HARD. Class sizes can be ridiculous sometimes but the professors are always wanting to get to know students on a personal level and help them in any way they can. Go Blue or Don't Go at all.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: U of M is a great school in a great location. Ann Arbor is a quirky and diverse little town with lots of culture and things to do. The university is obviously known for its academic prestige, and it does not disappoint. School spirit is high and there is always a buzz of excitement on football Saturdays. The dorms are fairly nice; though Bursley, Markley, and Baits need major renovations (especially their dining halls). My favorite experience by far is being a part of the women's club lacrosse team and winning the national championship with them. Overall, I really can't think of any school that's got it better than us.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So many opportunities for me to experience and learn everything from topics related to my engineering major to my interest in dance and languages. Art, Science, Fun, Innovation, Research, and hard work all come together here. It's a bit cliche, but the "work hard play hard" mentality is a key part of the University of Michigan

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't officially started at U-M yet, but I can say that there is a lot that the university does as a whole, including academic advisors, program directors, orientation leaders, current students on social media, and other parts of the community, that really work hard to make the incoming freshman feel at home before they even get there. My other friends are dreading move in day because there is so much that is unknown about what it will be like on their campus, but not me. I am literally counting down the minutes until I can call Ann Arbor my home.
