3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They have much help online for finding scholarships, but a lot of scholarships you are automatically entered in once you fill out the university financial aid profile. Remembering this extra step is crucial.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan offers much when it comes to student life and schooling options, but often rigid guidelines and study criteria make it difficult for some students to enjoy these extra options. Beyond this, the education is spectacular, and there is a huge option for research, but the teachers do often seem a bit more sucked into their research rather than teaching.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Much aid to safety is given to the university's features that promote safety, such as emergency buttons and a police force.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There is much to offer besides parties or studying. Ann Arbor has fantastic views, great movie theatres, interesting collections of art, historic museums, and billowing libraries filled with books.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Unique classes, organizations, and possibilities you cannot experience anywhere else. While still maintaining a well-rounded education, these things are integrated into students' lives quite easily.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are many bars and clubs as well as great places to catch food afterwards, since most places are open later on the weekends (such as Jimmy Johns, open until 4am Thursday-Saturday). Many who attend U of M say it is difficult to find the time to party or attend other nightlife events due to other commitments from school.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to dine off campus. not only are there the main chain restaurants, there are also other places that offer a great variety for an affordable college budget.

Transportation: The bus (city and campus) is free for all UofM students and the stops are conveniently located. If the buses are not running, there is always a cab service that can take you off campus for $5 and a cab service that will take you anywhere on campus for free.

Greek Life: There are some many differenet frats. Some are harder to get into than others. It is not necessary to join a frat to meet people and party but is still a good option

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I had one instance where my neighbor and his girlfriend were screaming at each other at 2am, so I called the dorm police officers and they took care of the situation immediately. It was nice to know that they cared about issues other than underage drinking and partying.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have the largest alumni base in the world, which means that students have many more opportunities when they enter the workforce after graduation. A Michigan diploma will take you anywhere you want to go.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Ann Arbor is a great college town and it is very convenient to have so many restaurants, cafes, and stores so close to campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Michigan is the only school I wanted to go to and the only school I applied to. I cannot imagine myself anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings around campus are old, but well-kept and beautiful. This school wouldn't be the same without the buildings on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Depending on which dorm you are living in, the food can be very bad. There are many days when I have never heard of the dish they are serving, and really don't want to find out what it tastes like.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletic teams consistently rank top in the nation and the athletes are considered superior to all other students.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are a lot of bars and clubs on and around campus that take 10 minutes or less to walk to.

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."
