3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration has skewed priorities. It does not do enough for lower income students. Also, they are more strict about plagiarism violations than sexual assault accusations.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are not a lot of scholarships available here, and the student body is very large. The university could do more for it's students.

Campus Housing: Student housing is guaranteed to freshman, and there are plenty of dining hall options.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From chic apartments, to affordable flats, to funky co-ops, to beautiful vintage houses, Ann Arbor has it all. I have yet to move off-campus, but from what I heard, it's a breeze. Tons of options AND it's often cheaper than living on-campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are parties every single weekend, literally everywhere. Often times I am faced with choosing between three or four parties! So many options for every different type of partier. I was wary my first day of college coming in as a freshman during welcome week. I went to a frat party with a group of people I didn't know and got trampled by drunk people. Don't let a sucky first experience like this get you down!!! Throughout the year, I have attended SO many cool parties with WAY cooler people. There is a place for everyone here.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor is the most happening place I've ever been to in terms of restaurants. Just in my first year, I've been to at least 10+ restaurants and I have loved ALL of them. There is never a shortage of off-campus dining options. Ann Arbor is a food MECCA!

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never had any issues with the administration at my school thus far.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Filling out the CSS profile was a pain, but it would have been necessary for any school. I ended up getting a large sum of money from the university, about half of my tuition was paid AND I was granted various loans. It certainly helped, but I am hoping to receive more aid this year. College is expensive no matter where you go, but U of M is WORTH IT!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: We complain about dining hall food because that's what we're supposed to do, but really, we are spoiled! The food is high quality, always varied, and really delicious. The dining hall staff is helpful, and the dining halls are beautiful. I'll get snapchats from my friends who go to other schools, and it looks like they're always eating cheeseburgers and white, limp salad. At Michigan, every meal is five star meal!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in East Quad because I'm a part of the Residential College (a living-learning community). The place literally feels like a hotel. Everything is renovated, the dining hall is amazing, there are music rooms, a café, and beautiful lounges. It's also really close to all of my classes, restaurants on South U, and parties on weekends, so it's never a far walk. The same goes for South Quad and North Quad -- both are incredible. I often hear complaints about some of the other dorms on the Hill and on North Campus, but West Quad will be brand-new is opening up in fall of 2015 in order to accommodate more people!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you are involved in greek life then you usually go to frats and clubs more but for others people go to house parties, frats, bars and everything in between pretty equally.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor has delicious food and it is not that expensive when you go to certain places. Student discounts aren't really a thing as far as I know and if it is then it is not publicized well. Tons of delicious foods at all hours. You just can't go out every night because it does add up.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Police officers roam dorms at night and they won't bother you unless you are loud or they smell drugs or alcohol. Even then if you are caught with alcohol, if you are nice they don't give you MIPs. They're more concerned for safetyand telling the truth than sticking to following rules

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school prides themselves in giving a large amount of financial aid every year but it's for students mainly in state and people who are out of state like me are expected to pay $50,000 and rarely receive financial aid. I've only applied for financial aid twice but every time I have had to go to the financial aid office and request more. Just because my family seemingly makes a good amount of money does not mean I can afford tuition. I need help just as much as the next person.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends where you end up living. Every dorm has a great social atmosphere but some are very old and gross while others are new and niece. My own dorm had get amenities and I was getting the most bang for my buck but other students, who were paying the same price as me for dorm living and lived in certain dorms, were not getting the best option.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the time off-campus housing is cheaper than the cost of a dorm. Houses are generally cheaper than the apartments unless you share a room. All rent prices in Ann Arbor are high, but you can find a deal if you look. Only downside is the lack of a meal plan (you can purchase an off campus meal plan but it cost $$). The busses can take you directly to the local groccery stores.

Party Scene: It's easier if you can get into the bars or have friends in Greek life, but overall, if you want to go out there's always something going on.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Between State St, South U, and Main St, there are a ton of options for all types of food and price ranges.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Markley Hall for my freshman year. It's one of the dorms waiting to be renovated. Rooms are on the small side but the social atmosphere makes up for it. Dining hall is in inside the dorm, although the food is better at other halls. Study rooms and lounges avalible on first come, first serve basis. Really loved living here!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Polo's a fun sport I never thought I'd play.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Overpriced college apts. with apathetic landlords.

Off-Campus Housing: Of campus housing is everywhere so it isn't difficult to find places at all. There is also advertising on campus for off campus housing. It is really easy to find somewhere off campus to live.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different restaurants near campus that there is no way you can get tired of the same food.

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."
