4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Your housing quality depends on where you end up living.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Mostly a very rich/pretentious group.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We are known for our football team. Go Harbaugh

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is always something to do, but there are many weeder classes, especially for Pre-Med students.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Very small rooms in Bursley. Proximity to the school of music was great. Felt like there were not many amenities, but I enjoyed the Living Arts community. I think I would have had a much more difficult time living in the dorms if I was not in a smaller section/living community. It gave a sense of unity and friendliness to an otherwise huge form filled with strangers, especially in the beginning.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Just from what I see on the streets on weekends, the way girls dress, the litter on the streets, drunk people. I tried to go to a couple parties freshman year and I just felt horrible about being around people in greek life. Very cliquey and the focus on alcohol made me feel empty. I fee lucky that I was never a part of Greek life and that I did not get caught up in the alcohol and gross parties.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Amazing amount of activities and concerts/events to chose from. Sometimes its hard to get involved just because there are SO many things to do. I loved my experience, and I think U of M is a phenomenal school with incredibly intellectual teachers. The music school is very friendly!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I believe that the athletic department at my school is well taken care of and is very important. I believe the involvement towards fan support and school spirit is high especially during football season.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the environment and experiences on campus. The campus and clubs provide many opportunities towards being involved with other students and alumni.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel like sexual assault is definitely not taken as seriously as it should be...There should be way more safe rides available at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are so many courses to choose from its pretty hard to pick! I wish class sizes were smaller though

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The alumni network here is the largest in the world...

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Amazing professors from the top of their fields, interesting engaging class environments, driven and smart students

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Amazing alumni network, lots of opportunities for recruiting/ internships

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: University Health Services, CAPS, and the Department of Public Safety don't do a great job.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in Markley, which is probably the smallest dorm which has not been redone, however my younger sister lives in West Quad and it's super nice.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority, and I'm definitely glad I joined one, because I met a ton of people and it really made a big school feel small. That being said, there are a lot of problems with Greek Life on campus, and we don't have a great reputation.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't change a thing about my college experience; the University of Michigan provides the top notch resources available from a globally renowned research institution with a strong community and small school feel.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are very important at the University of Michigan, and they are incredibly well endowed. Lots of fan support and school spirit, and the athletic facilities are top notch.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've loved most of my classes and professors. That said, math classes are taught by grad students who are often very hard to understand and very unskilled as teachers, regardless of their impressive math abilities. The university tries to save money by having them teach instead of hiring actual faculty.

Health & Safety: Walking alone at night is a bit unnerving. UM does provide rides and security support at night, which is great.

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."
