3 College Sophomore

Administration: Don't do something stupid and you won't get in trouble

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid, but I know many people who did. Michigan seems to be really good about financial aid.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of off campus housing available, however it is in high demand. You have to get started looking for a place very early on. The cost of living in Ann Arbor is relatively high.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of options, too many really. You can get almost anything you are craving. Many of the options are famous around Michigan and even throughout the country. Just be careful about eating out too often.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The overall safety on campus is very good. The issue of sexual assault however has been poorly handled by the administration.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics themselves are fantastic. The professors are knowledgeable and often famous within their field. The only downside is the difficulty trying to get in to classes. As a large school, there is always a waitlist for many classes offered.

4 College Junior

Academics: The psychology program does a great job of helping their students. They even set aside classes that are only available to psych majors to ensure that they don't fill up.

4 College Junior

Athletics: As a Big 10 school, athletics is a big part of campus life. You always see the varsity athletes around campus decked out in full Michigan gear. The games are fun to go to and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in sports below the varsity level.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The social scene is incredible on campus. There is always something going on. The tailgates are awesome and the parties are usually packed. You really feel a sense of community in the Big House on a Saturday afternoon in the fall.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The athletic centers are incredible and the library isn't bad at all. It is open 24 hours and has plenty of resources. Students also have access to the grad library which is quite helpful.

3 College Junior

Majors: My program only had prerequisite classes and was not very difficult to get into. Programs like the public policy school and the business school however are extremely competitive and difficult.

4 College Junior

Majors: I really enjoy the psychology program. The advisors are very helpful and the workload is average. They hold many internship and job fairs to help students get started.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There are not so great places to eat, however South Quad was recently renovated and is now incredible. The dining options have been greatly improved recently.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is not very strict about most things. However, there are worse repercussions if you are caught with drugs in your dorm than if you are caught with drugs off campus.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Students are typically very accepting of diversity, however there has been tension between certain groups of students. An example of this is issues between the Israeli and Arab students.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely present on campus, but it doesn't overwhelm the social scene. There is a fairly amiable relationship between Greeks and non-Greeks. The Greek students can choose to live in the main houses, and there are often also junior and senior houses available. During tailgate season everyone is welcome to participate in the parties, regardless of their Greek status. On weekends it may be more difficult for non-Greeks to find parties.

Local Area: Ann Arbor was my favorite part of the college. Has all aspects of a college town. Dining and bars are amazing.

5 Recent Alumnus

Administration: You can do anything you want if you don't bother others.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: One of the best public schools in the country. Unlimited academic opportunities for those that seek them.

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

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.

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

With its outstanding academics in conjunction with its remarkable athletics, Michigan offers a perfect college balance: a great education and a fun social atmosphere.

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."
