4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty diverse in areas like ethnicity, religion, etc, but not as diverse in economic background and political beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm not into drugs/partying/etc, so mostly I'm never bothered by them. However, Hash Bash in the beginning of April is pretty noteworthy and impossible to avoid. Luckily it's a one day event.

4 College Junior

Diversity: People are very welcoming of all the backgrounds. Whenever something in the world happens then things get tense i.e. BLM, terrorist attacks, hate toward LGBT. Michigan has a large Jewish student population, minority, and muslim population. As long as you treat other kind others will treat you the same. The only ever racist thing I've experience was comments from a random townie not even a student.

Drug Safety: visibility there's a frat next to the student union. Actually there's greek/party houses near/next to all dorms except northwood and bursley and baits. So obviously it's visible. Ann Arbor has a good law like if you call 911 for a pass out person you and that person are exempt from any charges. I think peer pressure isn't really a big thing unless your in greek life like most people are independents by nature at umich and do what they want and when they want. Like if you know what weed smells like you'll notice the diag will be dank sometimes. Like you'll catch a whiff of weed sometimes especially in crowded places but like it's not a big deal.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Michigan has a lot to offer there is literally something for everyone. I'm serious there's even a squirrel feeding club. The academics speak for themselves #1 anthropology in the country, the arts are phenomenal. The course work is hard but what do you except Michigan is literally one step down from Ivy. Obviously, lectures are huge but discussion sections are manageable and help is always available. There's math lab, science learning center, office hours professors and psi, tutors through the university. If your not doing well it's not because the resources aren't there.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The buildings themselves are great, not including Oxford and North campus and Northwood. West Quad Best Quad.The housing process is terrible freshman have priority then underclassmen so basically anyone above sophomore year is screwed and it's going to be worst with the Provost new admittance wants. In Ann Arbor you sign your leave around November but the housing application doesn't come out until March/April plus the rent in Ann Arbor is ridiculous for the quality similar to NY, Chicago, and LA. East Quad has the best community but that is due to the building being almost completely RC students.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Football Saturdays! Michigan sports are by far the best even when we don't win.

Greek Life: The greek atmosphere is like somewhat everywhere. I've heard complaints from greeks and gdi's. Greek life says they feel secluded and that they don't have enough freedom while gdi's feel that they have too much freedom and double standards regarding non-white greek life. As individuals greeks are pretty chill but when a group is involved then some people get little rude and pretentious. Honestly, you can avoid it as long as you don't live in Oxford.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: DPSS send crime alerts. Michigan dining handle the norovirus breakout well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Michigan has so much to offer. You really have to find your own niche i.e. clubs, orgs, etc. to make this large campus a small community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses I have taken have had very small class sizes and this has led to a very positive learning experience for me. I have bonded well with my professors and they have all been very approachable and knowledgeable. There is a strong variety of courses until you declare your major and then the path is much more decided.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having a degree from UMich in any field is highly valuable by employers and there are many opportunities to get internships and jobs on and off campus if you personally put the effort into seeking them out.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sporting events are a huge deal, and festivities revolving around them take up most weekends. It is an amazing atmosphere when most of the student body gets together to celebrate our teams. The Big House is huge and has terrible cell service, but this also makes it easier to actually interact with those around you and pay attention to the game.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UofM has endless possibilities and has allowed me to pursue interests I didn't even know I had. It does have an adequate party scene, but it is easy to avoid if you are not looking to indulge yourself in that lifestyle. I was very skeptical choosing Michigan at first because I thought it would be too rigorous and not a school where I could relieve stress on the weekends, but now that I have attended for a full year, I cannot see myself attending any other university. The friends I have made here are absolutely amazing and I know I will keep in touch after college.

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."
