Athletics: Student involvement in athletics is amazing. Basketball and football are the two major sports that almost everyone on campus participates in. We have the biggest college football stadium and have over 100,000 people in attendance at every game. Students and alumni have so much pride in our team, so it makes everything so much fun. There is even a lot of support for smaller sports, including soccer, lacrosse, etc. Overall, athletics is a huge part of our campus life and it's awesome

Campus Quality: Student life is great and the campus is full of things to do. Most buildings are modern and clean, as the school undergoes reconstruction every year. There are still some old buildings but it adds a nice touch of different architecture and aesthetics to the overall campus. Libraries are great for studying although it's sometimes hard to find a spot during midterms/finals, and you need to know which library/floor to go to in order to accomplish what you need to. Campus tradition is obviously amazing and it gives me so much pride in my school. It's an experience of a lifetime

Off-Campus Housing: I lived on off-campus housing my entire time in Ann Arbor. It was fine.

Weather: When it 's hot it's really hot and when it's cold it's really cold. Autumn and Spring are the best and it would be a perfect location if those seasons lasted longer.

Overall Experience: I loved The University of Michigan because I was able to major in English and minor in a professional theatre program. I enjoyed the Big 10 atmosphere and the Arts were unparalleled.

Parking: I don't even have a car and I'm glad I don't. From what I know from friends and fellow students, parking is horrendous on and around campus.

Campus Food: Food is great! There are so many options and dining halls. If you have a meal plan, you can eat anywhere and there's something for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I thought the housing practice was very easy to complete. The program that I'm in allowed me to live in a new, spacious building with amazing proximity to classes. However not everyone has this experience and some freshman get stuck in really small, old and crappy housing.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I think it is possible to find a committed relationship here, but it's difficult. Guys are generally attractive and are usually pretty smart. However, there is a huge hookup culture here and if your not into that you might want to search elsewhere.

College Freshman

Majors: I don't have any knowledge or experience in this area.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not declared a major yet, but majors are very active in getting information out to potential students.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: U of M likes to say that the campus is very diverse and accepting but it really isn't. We just had a scandal with a fraternity trying to throw a racially insensitive Halloween party. You really have to try hard to connect with you're minority group, in whatever form.

Technology: Computer labs can be crazy around test and midterms time. Some classes require laptops, so you really do need one. There are some wifi networks provided by campus but they can be really spotty and unreliable.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's as safe as any campus, but they do send out crime alerts when any crime is reported and that can make it really scary. They are good at keeping students informed but it can make you feel like there is a lot of crime on and directly around campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus at University of Michigan is absolutely beautiful! They are doing a lot of renovations lately so if a campus building or residence hall isn't exactly up to date, you can bet it will be in the next few years.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school isn't very cooperative with financial aid and working with a student to help them.

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."
