3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't receive any financial aid, so I wouldn't know how the process works.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A little bit pricy for the regular college student, but the variety is excellent.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There's always something to be done in Ann Arbor. Whether it be football games, food, social activities, or musical venues, Ann Arbor is always supporting its students.

Scholarships: Scholarships is probably the rarest and hardest way of obtaining money. FAFSA and federal aid is your most available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Like any dining hall, you get used to it and tired of it. But, still, dining food here is never what I am disgusted about.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The restaurants aren't bad. North Campus is pretty quiet, so if you prefer to study in quiet dorms, live up north.

Administration: I personally think the strictness is at an appropriate amount. The campus police tend to be more accepting than the city police, but both will give students a break and will be harsh when needed.

Parking: The city of Ann Arbor is not known for having good parking. Most of it is parallel parking and fees include about $4 an hour. For longer stays there are parking structures that students may use. I have heard that for underclassman/students living in dorms parking passes are harder to come by and you may have to move your car every so often. Also, freshman are generally not allowed to have a car on campus.

Diversity: One reason I love the University of Michigan is because of the diversity. Most people are extremely accepting of others views and opinions can be openly expressed without a problem.

Drug Safety: I said "it's okay" because there are safety precautions in place but usage is still abundant. There are online drug and relationship safety programs that are required for students to take.

Campus Housing: Many of the dorms are being renovated, so they are bigger, nicer and modern. Also, many of them have laundry facilities, workout rooms, kitchenettes, and computing sites.

Weather: Its Michigan! The weather can be hot one minute and cold the next. It tends to be colder in Ann Arbor than the surrounding cities, but if you bundle up, then you can stay warm.

Scholarships: Personally, I did not get any financial aid from the school, but it was easy to apply for aid.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with my major so far. There was no application to get in and the mathematics counselors were extremely helpful when I had questions about what path I should be on or what courses I should take.

Technology: There really isn't an absolute need to bring a laptop because there are so many computer labs on campus, but it can be useful. Depending on what college you are in, the number of printing pages you get varies, but most people do not use all of their pages. Also, there is wi-fi in every campus building.

Greek Life: Frat parties are fun. You can still get in if you aren't greek. Pledging sucks!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is great! There are a good mixture of international, in-state, and out-of-state kids on campus. There are a lot of Asians (Indian, like myself, included) and white people. African Americans and Hispanics are barely ever seen around campus. There's a sizable Jewish population. You'll be able to find your ethnic group if you look for them. Indian people and even non-Indian people, join IASA! It's a riot!

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."
