5 College Sophomore

Academics: Tough classes on par with the top ivy league schools. Extremely effective academic curriculum and great staff members dedicated towards the students' education

Greek Life: Greek life is an efficient way of grouping together dedicated individuals with similar interests allowing them to do big things for the school and the community. My own fraternity earned $14,000 in a fundraiser towards Tay-Bandz, a charity for children's cancer

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Be aware of the deadlines otherwise you have to wait another year

3 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity at the school as a whole is great, however, a lot of student organizations and especially greek life are not as diverse as I would like.

Campus Housing: I loved living in Mary Markely--it was very social. It was, however, quite far from my classes on Central Campus.

5 College Senior

Academics: I am challenged each and every day by my classmates, who are all equally, if not more, accomplished than I.

Administration: The campus is relatively lenient when it comes to partying. The exception is large, open parties that often serve excessive amounts of liquor. Those are strictly regulated.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Who hasn't heard of Michigan Football? It's almost a religion around here!

Transportation: Michigan's busing system provides an easy way for students without cars to get around--which is necessary due to the minimal amount of parking!

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor has some of the best breakfast spots in the country! Perfect for when your family or friends are visiting.

5 College Senior

Majors: I had an internship every summer I was at Michigan, except the summer I was studying for the LSAT. MIchigan is so reputable, I had no concerns about finding a position. TIme commitment was large and workload challenging, but it is certainly doable.

5 College Senior

Majors: The Political Science Department has some of the best political minds in the nation. I was able to take a wide variety of courses that interested me while avoiding classes that weren't my strong suit, like international politics.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid was easy to obtain despite the fact that I submitted my FAFSA later than recommended. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

4 College Senior

Technology: Printing on campus is made easy with MPrint. I can print my papers from home and pick them up at the printer on the way to class. The only downside is that the Printers are often full of papers left behind by students.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Ann Arbor is a college town where everyone is passionate about Michigan!

4 College Student

Party Scene: Once you stop going to frat houses, and find house parties and Coop parties, your life will get so much better. The people are cool and interesting, sometimes they have kegs of craft beers, life is good. Just DONT go to frats because they will make you feel dirty inside

Local Area: Ann Arbor is actually a great town! It's pretty, and has all the amenities a larger town might have, without many of the disadvantages.

Athletics: If you like sports, come here. If you don't, stay away because it's a scary cult of sports where if you don't know the name of every member of the football team or go to every football game you feel like you may well get beat up by some overzealous wolverines fans.

4 College Student

Academics: Classes are really the only redeeming factor at this institution. They may be classist, and put football players above victims of rape, but classes are definitely interesting!

Weather: Rain, snow, sleet, -30 degree weather, if you're from somewhere that knows what the sun is, DO NOT ENTER

3 College Student

Technology: They certainly do a good job, for such a huge school. There definitely are some problems with wireless etc. but generally all is good.

1 College Student

Greek Life: Honestly I absolutely detest pretty much everything about Greek life. I wish they would go the way of Greece itself and just die already. They are horrible places with absurd amounts of horrible, misogynistic people- as a guy, I still feel unsafe in their parties. If someone tells me that they're in a fraternity, that's an automatic notch down in my book, comparable to how I would feel if they were to tell me that they might be a little racist, or that they think women are less intelligent than men.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Honestly I can't say much about the financial aid here, but I do know that more of it is shifting from need-based to merit based, so that should help you if you're wealthy enough not to actually need any money.

4 College Student

Majors: All my classes are really interesting, and I certainly enjoy learning every week

5 College Student

Transportation: Honestly the buses run so often, and Umich students have access to city buses for free as well! They really do an excellent job with it.

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."
