5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our fan support is among the best in the country, it is common knowledge that the atmosphere of the Big House is unrivaled in college football. A lot of students are involved in sports on campus, and our varsity teams do extremely well. Most get overshadowed by basketball and football, but they all rank well in their divisions.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are all very knowledgeable about their subjects. The work load is intense, especially in the common prerequisites like Calculus and Economics 101, so studying is mandated. Registering for classes can be a headache due to the amount of students, but there are classes available for every interest.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is intense but intriguing. The professors are professionals and have a lot of experience. The downside is that classes are curved, so your grade is in comparison to others in your class. Excluding that, it is one of the best business programs in the country.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are definitely an experience that I think everyone should experience and I am glad that I had the opportunity to live in them because I feel like I learned a lot about what it means to live with others that are not your parents, but that doesn't mean I want to do it again.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are some great professors who are passionate about teaching and their subject, but you will also run into those you are just there because it is a great research school.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: We have a great communications program, but it is a sorority girl degree so expect a lot of them in your classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You can really make this school your own. I worried about it being to big for me, but I was really able to customize what I did and did not want to be involved with to make it the right fit for me. This school is great because you can make it as small as you need it too, but you also have the opportunity to make is much bigger.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Ann Arbor is really nice when the weather is warm and fall is really pretty, but the winters can be absolutely brutal.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many choices here. There is the really nice, high-end stuff and the greasy, open-all-night places that you want when you're walking home from a party or a long night at the library.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: This school loves it's athletes. Sports are definitely a big part of all students lives.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are some really nice and really cool people. Not everyone is an arrogant jerk like the reputation says, but those people are definitely here. There are some people who are only focused on success and their schoolwork, but then again, it is Ann Arbor and you can certainly find people who are really cool and laid-back.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is hard to find something in a good location that doesn't cost too much. You have to make some sacrifices, but the freedom is really nice.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in greek life, but I have met some nice people who are. They throw good parties, but sometimes they can get a little sketchy, depending on who is throwing the party.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Lots of things to do

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Everything is close and you don't have to pay to get in at parties. If you aren't in greek life, you have to look a little harder but nothing is too difficult to find.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Really nice for a large city college.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is diversity, but it seems that some of the beliefs get marginalized, not necessarily by the university.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Organized and good food, but expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Everyone is usually friendly. Most people living there are students, but there are also locals. The restaurants and businesses seem to treat locals and students the same.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: One of the best schools in the country for academics. Challenging, but rewarding.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The buses are usually pretty reliable. I lived on North Campus last year and the longest I waited for a bus was 25 minutes.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Meter and ramp parking. Better to just ride the bus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Sometimes pretty far away, but cheap. The close housing is expensive but convenient.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most people are stuck up.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't care much for Greek Life

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.

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.
