5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Michigan is the best school in the world and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Ann Arbor is the quintessential college town. There is always something going on, and the entire city is about the University of Michigan.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a SafeRide system in place, as well as buses, that run late at night. University Health Services is free and easily accessible.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Besides football, basketball, and hockey games, which are all super fun to attend, there are many opportunities to be involved in athletics, including club sports and intramurals. I have played intramural broomball for two seasons, and it was fun and a great way to meet people.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great professors, many interesting classes to choose from, dedicated students, and heavy but doable workload.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor restaurants are awesome. One of my favorites is Frita Batidos, a Cuban burger place, and Zingerman's Deli is up there as well.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options in terms of off-campus housing. Students typically move off-campus Sophomore or Junior year.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Campus is beautiful, and the Big House is by far the coolest facility on campus. It is our football stadium, the biggest in the world, able to hold roughly 115,000 fans. Going to games is incredible. Academics are competitive but fair, and the professors are always willing to meet with students in or out of office hours. Michigan students like to have fun, but are also extremely dedicated to their studies.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The Big House is amazing and football Saturdays are the best.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is nearly impossible to receive if you are an out-of-state student, despite having to pay a lot more to attend.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus police are fair and don't try to get students in trouble unnecessarily.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: While many freshman are placed on North Campus for housing, I was lucky enough to be a part of the Lloyd Hall Scholars Program, housed in Alice Lloyd. Alice Lloyd was in the area on campus known as "The Hill" and it is about a ten minute walk to class on Central Campus. Living in the dorms was fun and a great experience.

Guys & Girls: The social life is great, particularly during football season. The entire school goes to games and tailgates on football Saturdays, making for one of the best parts of the year.

Campus Food: Some of the dining halls are better than others. Probably the best is East Quad, followed by North Quad. Mojo is one of the bigger dining halls with more options, while East Quad and North Quad are smaller. Markley has limited options, although make-your-own pizza is fun and pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: the sports team is the best

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Any counselor for the major is extremely helpful with finding jobs or internships. Additionally, professors do all they can to help their students exceed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Depending on the major there is a lot to get involved with. Also, within each member a student can cater classes to fit their interests.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Everyone is so involved on campus. They are currently renovating athletic centers and there are many places and libraries for students to go and visit.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My academic experience thus far has greatly exceeded my expectations. Every professor I have had has been extremely helpful and knowledgable.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is a lot to do in Ann Arbor. The nightlife includes parties from greek life, house parties, and clubs (and some of the clubs are 18 and older).

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are a lot of different majors available to students, and even the option to create your own major. Once choosing a major you get your own specialized counselor and there are also many major specific clubs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: North Campus has the most outdated dorms, and the least convenient as far as proximity to classes, therefore they are the worst options. South, East and North Quad were all recently renovated so they would be the best options. The cost is even across dorms, the only difference is by room size (Double, Triple, Single etc)

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation is convenient, campus and city buses are free for students and usually come close to their scheduled times. Campus buses usually don't have a wait period past 30 minutes, except on weekends. North Campus commuters should always plan for an extra 30 minute wait

Greek Life: Our school has a frat row of white Greek houses, so housing is available for those groups. A lot of students go Greek, but many go into professional fraternities instead of social ones. Overall the party scene is dominated by Greeks, but you don't need to be Greek to enjoy them.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus Authorities are generally friendly and easy to get along with, but they are very strict on public and underage drinking. You don't want to be obviously drunk outside of a party or in your dorm because security does patrol the dorms and campus during the huge party seasons: Welcome Week, Halloween Weekend and St. Patrick's Weekend. The school has a no tolerance policy for cheating, they take their honor code very seriously, and it is definitely not worth the risk.

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."
