5 College Junior

Parking: You don't need a car because parking is expensive and it costs a lot to park. I do have a car but only use it after 6 when parking is free.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The university has many options in place for student safety. Rides back to your dorms if u don't want to walk alone. Blue phones all over campus if you have a problem. Security officers patrol the dorms regularly. The health service is free to students. It is good care but you see a different doctor depending on what ails you.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys join the clubs as much as the girls do.

5 College Junior

Academics: Teachers are very available to communicate with. Either through email or office hours. There is a lot of homework but that goes with going to college

5 College Junior

Local Area: So much to do in Ann Arbor. It's a great place to go to school. The shopping is good and the bus can take you wherever you need to go.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live in an apartment on campus. It is quiet and I have a lot of privacy. I also lived in an all girls dorm which I also liked. They had planned activities within the dorm. It was a good way to meet the other people living there. A very diverse university.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life but know people who are.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Life on campus is great. You will find lots of school spirit and lots of participation in campus activities.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Michigan has the best opportunities. You have access to many resources and if you take advantage of it all you will succeed there.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Central Campus downtown has many restaurants. There is something for every ethnic.

5 College Junior

Athletics: There is nothing like the Wolverine fans. Go Blue!

4 College Junior

Weather: You need to walk everywhere so if you dress accordingly you will be fine. In winter there is snow and it is cold.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: A lot of options and choices

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is many close housing to the university. It is very easy to get around. The buses are always full but convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Ann Arbor is an interesting city with a lot of interesting people. There are a lot of great food restaurants if you know where to look.

Overall Experience: A lot of people I know come to Michigan either raised Maize and Blue or really unsure. Almost everyone I know leaves with a lifelong obsession.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Bless their hearts, they say that they're trying. But all divided up, it's about $15/meal with not a whole lot of vegan/vegetarian and minimal halal/kosher options. The food isn't too shabby, though. It's worse near breaks when they're trying to get rid of it, but I never was too upset about my meals.

Technology: The network sucks, but c'est la vie. You get used to it and the fishbowl has a lot of computers available. I personally think it would be easier to own one, but you could probably survive without it.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of groups on campus that try to call attention to diversity. In most cases, this is awesome. In some cases, it turns into a very subtle "us vs. them." Mostly, though, the campus is incredibly diverse and accepting!

1 College Sophomore

Academics: The Arabic Language program makes me rage. There are so many things about it that are wrong and broken.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: All of my GSI's have been really well trained and knowledgable. I liked my professors. There's a lot of independence in terms of taking control of your own education here. Nobody is going to babysit you and sometimes it's difficult to find direction.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Don't walk alone because that's stupid anywhere. As for UHS, they're notoriously incompetent.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Michigan. It's cold. Can't really say I expected anything else, but it's still disappointing. Side note: the days when it hails are great for school puns.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They're renovating pretty much everything right now. Even without renovations, Central Campus housing is pretty sweet. People complain, but honestly, what did you expect? This isn't vacation, sweetie.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It depends on the sorority or frat you're talking about. Some are great, other's are not. It doesn't take very long to figure out where you belong in the system.

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."
