3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most non-greek people hate greek life. Greek life tends to have a bad rep on campus for doing really stupid things.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit is amazing. I am not normally a sports person but I love to go to the events. Athletics are a huge deal here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of wealthy students here, and as a not wealthy student, it is hard to fit in with the lifestyle here. Although there are many people I adore here, I honestly don't know if I would pick this school again. The academic aspect is wonderful, I just don't think that the type of people here are my kind of people.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, there is a wide variety of activities to satisfy all interests, a lot of interesting and thought-provoking classes to take, staffed with dedicated and knowledgeable instructors, and a plethora of student organizations in which one can take part, though there is a bit of a learning curve to overcome when starting one's freshman year.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Sometimes it's hard to get into the courses you want, but overall the classes are great once you're in

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Going to the University of Michigan has opened a lot of doors for me--I'm thankful I went here

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: This campus is pretty safe. Rarely are there any serious crimes that I'm aware of

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Lived in Bursley on North Campus freshman year. Not a great experience--not close to campus and there was nothing that good about the dorm that made up for its bad proximity.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm in Greek Life and I think it's just okay. There are some community service and other charitable events, but it's mainly about partying.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm about to graduate next month and I have nothing to complain about and only positive things to say. I got a very good college experience at a good price as an in-state student.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Michigan Football is king here. Basketball is second, and hockey is third. Sports are very important to students, alumni, and fans who didn't even go here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What makes the school unique is its warm, inclusive and highly-collaborative culture.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It has one of the best football teams in the country!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Almost all of my professors were phenomenal, and practically all of them were at least very good at what they do. I enjoyed so may of my classes and learned so much!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like the prospects just with an undergraduate degree in general are not fantastic, but I am very satisfied and feel like I have a leg up to have an undergrad degree from U of M. I am continuing into my grad studies.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have heard of people being sexually assaulted and a friend of mine was raped. I personally rarely felt threatened out on the streets, but its not the safest of environments.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think this is more of a societal issue, but people generally do not take sexual assault seriously, or try to blame the victim. More can be done.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think overall, it is the best education you will get in Michigan. It is a very challenging school

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree here is very valuable, especially if you choose a challenging major or apply to graduate school

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.

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."
