Local Area: The school has different campuses that are about 15 minutes away from the center. Central campus is the best place to be; there are many fun dining, shopping, and studying options. There are many historical buildings on campus that are really inspiring to visit or study in. Also, the fall and late spring are the best times to be outdoors, whether you are out canoeing with friends or reading your favorite book. Some of the area attractions are the university art museum, the museum of natural history, the "Diag" in front of the graduate library, and more.

Diversity: The best part of being from such a diverse campus is the exchange of beliefs and opinions that happens. You can learn a lot by meeting someone and talking with them and usually, people like to talk about their backgrounds. You will definitely meet people of differing ethnic, religious, and political backgrounds. For the most part, people are accepting of other backgrounds and I haven't run into any challenges. You obviously have to give respect to be respected and that's how I feel about living in harmony with others. Student organizations are very active on campus and you can always find an interesting activity to attend.

Campus Housing: I did not live in Campus Housing but many of my friends did and I can say there is a variety of available options. There are older buildings and there are newer buildings but for the most part, the social atmosphere and cleanliness of the buildings are great.

Parking: Parking is not bad but can definitely be improved. A parking permit costs around 70$ for a year which gives me easy access to North Campus through a 5-10 minute bus ride. There is guest parking available on North Campus but it costs 1.25$ an hour which can quickly add up if you're planning on spending at least a few hours. Parking tickets are almost always issued if you're parked past your time limit or in the wrong parking zone. What I would like to see changed is the amount of guest parking spots available on North Campus and a lower hourly parking fee for guest parking spots.

Academics: Chemical engineering is a pretty difficult program. But It's probably like they for any other majors at the school. You really have to work hard if you love what you do. There are lots and lots of opportunities. Go to career fair!

Majors: You just have to meet the requirements to get into the program that you want. It's always competitive and have to work for it, but that would be like anywhere else. If you want it, work hard to get it.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love it. I love the academic advisors and professors in the program. They are all a great help, and would do what it takes to help you succeed. They give the great advices.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's really what you make of it. Campus facilities are in great conditions, and the school is always trying to improve it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Love the football and basketball scenes. Hockey is great too. All of the sports are great, and this school definitely have the school spirit. Going to a football game will change your life! Must go to at all one of the sports events!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most of the Greeks have housing available, and they are very, VERY big houses -- mansion-like. I don't know of their quality, but they are constantly renovating with the money they have to create a better living environment. Non-Greeks are mostly indifferent of the Greek students. People join to fit into a group, or to make new friends and have lasting friendship groups. However, you can do the same without joining one.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There are always safety rules that everyone should follow. The school is not particularly strict about these things, but actions would be taken if lines were crossed.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are always events occurring in this college town. It has a very vibrant night and day life; it is really up to the student to make the best of it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a very a helpful off-campus housing site that is supported by the school. It is very easy to find housing. However, the availability of housing options goes quick, so you have to be quick on decisions and groups to sign contract for housing in the fall term. Parking spots are hard to find, and not really necessary for you to have a care as there is great public transportation. I would say the campus is pretty safe in general; but that doesn't mean anyone should walk alone at night, or leave their doors unlocked.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The social scene is great, especially during fall semester when every is coming back to school and getting into the football season. There are many options for students to do in Ann Arbor, whether for places to hang out or places to eat. The academic programs are different for each college at the university, but they are all have helpful faculty members and people who care about their students' success.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is VERY, VERY diverse. Many students and professors of different ethnicity. Students can openly dicuss about their religions and political views. I would say the school is pretty liberal in general.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are many transportation options at school. However, the best way to get around town would be the public city buses, and the campus shuttles. The campus shuttles literally get you everywhere around campus. The city buses would be the nest best option for you go to places such as the nearest mall.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: I love the high amount of computers the school provides. Everything is great, except the wireless access may be a bit difficult for some laptops to deal with. The students would only have to bring it in to a campus tech support, and they would fix the problem for you. There is wireless printing with your own laptops, in which I LOVE because you can print from home and grab the printed document on the way to class in that building. Every student gets a large printing quota limit, especially the engineering students. Speed of network is pretty fast.

Scholarships: The financial aid process is easy, as you would just have to fill out the FAFSA as you do at any school and provide the necessary financial documents the school asks for. There are a lot of scholarships available for students to apply for.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options is greatly diverse. There are so many choices to make, and so many restaurants to try out! Restaurant week is the most popular time of the year for students and local residents to come out to Ann Arbor to try out all the different restaurants with great offers. There's a great deal of different ethnic cuisine and vegetarian options. Not only is there a great number of different types of restaurants, these restaurants serve high quality food and tastes are just amazing.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: House parties and Greek parties are what's up. Plenty of them going on.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Some people is Greek life are terrible, some are great. Some houses are okay, some are not so great (two have had fires this past year).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I wouldn't change a thing. I love my classes and friends and all the opportunities the university gives.

Scholarships: There were some personal problems that did not allow me to receive more financial aid than what I got when I needed more.

4 College Freshman

Technology: tons of computers to use, if you know where to go. The biggest problem I see is when MWireless goes out, which is somewhat common.

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.
