5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The combination of a party school and a serious academic school is what makes Michigan great!! You're never bored. You'r always studying or partying and having a great time. There's a lot of people everywhere all the time, so you never get bored. The biggest problem literally is the cold and the snow and the buses. Other than that, Michigan is great! We're the Leaders and the Best for a reason, you know!

Campus Food: The dining halls are only open sometimes. Forget about using meal swipes for late night meals. It won't happen. Variety is just okay. There are vegetarian options everywhere, and kosher options at West Quad. North Quad dining and East Quad dining are amazing, but always crowded. Bursley has the BEST french fries and yummy cookies.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The best dorms are on Central campus! Avoid North like the plague! The buses are extreme inconvenient! North Quad and East quad are amazing, but freshmen are not allowed to live in North Quad or Cambridge House so I hear. West Quad is okay. The dining sucks though. The Hill (Markley, MOJO, Couzens, etc.) is much better than North! If you are on North campus, Bursley is the place to be. It's social. The dining hall is in the building. And there's late night pizza. Baits is in Siberia. Markley has tiny rooms! Couzens and MOJO and Alice Lloyd are fancy! Try to score those freshman year!

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of restaurants near Central campus. There's an okay variety. Eating off campus can get costly though. Late night options are great! I love the 4am pizza !

4 College Freshman

Technology: There are tons of computers around campus, but most of the time, they are taken. Printing is amazing! We get 400 free prints throughout the semester. I went over, but it only cost $1, so it's no big deal. Printers are readily available. Wireless is great and fast enough, except on North Campus, where connection is just okay.

Health & Safety: There have been a string of assaults happening on campus lately, so that's something to worry about especially when walking alone. The city of Ann Arbor and the campus intertwine, so there are a lot of people who aren't students around. Pathways are thoroughly lit though, so it's never dark. It's pretty safe. The biggest threat is drunk students after they've been to a frat party.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking is seen a lot. There are bars right near the campus, and there's always a frat party or two going on. If you don't drink, you'll get a lot of pressure to start because everyone does it. Marijuana is the most common drug on campus, but drug use isn't all that obvious.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The BIG HOUSE!! GO to football games! They're an experience in themselves. Sports is a huge part of campus life. Facilities don't really matter to those of us who aren't gifted at sports though.

2 College Freshman

Parking: There's hardly any convenient spot on central campus, and it costs an arm and a leg. Don't drive if you don't need to. It's not worth it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is great! Students everywhere, plenty of places to eat out, things going on all the time. It's cold a lot though, so you're probably going to limit your outdoor activities. The academics are difficult, but it's worth it!

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The library, called the UgLi, is always noisy because there's so much activity going on all the time. Don't worry! There are tons of quiet places to study, such as the the Law Library reading room, the Graduate library stacks, and more. The Athletics facilities are state of the art, though I have limited experience with athletics! The Big House, though, is just wow!
As far as campus activities, there's always something going on somewhere! Though, they aren't always free to go to, the shows put on by different student organizations are amazing!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If there is a crime near or on campus there is an alert sent to all of the students. Late at night there is always a police officer patrolling campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many choices for off campus dining, especially on State Street or South University. Also, many places offer delivery, even late at night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the University of Michigan! All of my professors have been amazing. They are willing to help and genuinely enjoy their job. Also, I love the diversity at this school.

Athletics: Athletics play a large part at the University of Michigan, especially the football!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation is great at the University of Michigan! There are "blue buses" to take students around campus and students can also use the Ann Arbor city buses for transportation. There are buses to the Chicago airport and you can get a ride to Detroit Metro airport for only $7. Also, it is easy to use the bus system. The only downside is that the buses do not always run as frequently on the weekend as they do during the week and it can take a while to get somewhere by bus on a game day.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not been around greek life that often, but on game day the parties can be crazy. There has been some issues with the frats but they were quickly handled by the university. I would say overall greek like at the University of Michigan is a great opportunity to get into.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Basically don't be an idiot and nothing will happen.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Ann Arbor is a beautiful city and college town.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Michigan is incredibly proactive in supporting minority communities and protecting all students' rights. It's a great community to be a part of.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to live off campus, but I did inquire early. There are many options, but due to the number of students, the options dwindle early on.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Michigan is a hugely diverse university. If there's a hobby you're interested in pursuing, it's represented somewhere on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Michigan is a very safe campus. Alerts are sent out by the campus police if there is an issue.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Michigan has a bus system that is dreadful if you're left waiting forever. Other than that, it's obviously a great system to get around easily. The stops and routes become very familiar easily.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not drive on campus, as most freshman.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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."
