4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is definitely a variety of girls. Very good looking girls can be found if you know where to look.

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.

Academics: My major is very innovative and we have state of the art equipment available for student use.

Academics: Classes are challenging but I know that the degree I will receive is top of the line.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid because I knew I would not receive anything. My school is notorious for giving out very little financial aid to students.

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys on campus are only into partying and hooking up with random girls every weekend. The girls that are willing to do just that don't help the situation either.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Very hard to find spots and student parking permits are extremely hard to come by and very limited.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a lot of non-students on campus at any given time, which concerns me at night, especially if I have to walk alone.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: I personally have my own laptop and it's nice to have access to wireless internet pretty much anywhere on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life can be annoying for non-Greeks. Girls in sororities like to flaunt that they are Greek members and sometimes I feel lost in a sea of preppy people.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is, by far, cheaper than on-campus housing; however, the locations are not the best. Housing on the downtown campus area is closest to classes, shopping and food.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Often times, major areas of study are very closed in within a specific area and diversity is somewhat lacking. Most people are too busy to get out.

3 College Junior

Technology: There are plenty of computers to use on campus and, depending on location, have all sorts of software, however, the printing costs are outrageous!

4 College Junior

Transportation: The local bus system is great (and free) for UM students, however, the limited hours make it difficult to schedule.

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."
