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.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: My roommate is actually obsessed with parking here. It's all-consuming. Paying for parking is insane unless you've got a silver spoon in your mouth and finding parking is like looking for Waldo Extreme edition. Sometimes you're lucky, usually you're not. It's better if you try to park your car mid morning.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Let's be real. This is Michigan and athletics are at the heart of the Michigan experience. I wasn't into sports before I came here, but even I can't deny that by the end of March Madness, I was having fits about Louisville.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's pretty easy for underage kids to access illegal substances. It's Ann Arbor, so obviously there's a lot of weed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: U of M's campus is considered beautiful by many. I think it lacks a lot in the natural aesthetics, but maybe that's just because I'm too lazy and the Arb is too far away. Overall, it's not bad, but I'm not totally in love with it, either.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Food isn't fantastic, but the meal plan is the way to go.

2 College Senior

Campus Quality: Some centers need to be updated, but normally that goes to the athletic centers first for renovation. The academics are normally last to receive any benefits.

2 College Senior

Drug Safety: Students love to drink on weekends for the football games. Oftentimes you can smell a particular drug wafting through the windows, as well.

3 College Senior

Weather: We get all four seasons there. Sometimes a lot of snow makes walking to classes a fun challenge. When it's extremely hot, normally there aren't classes unless you're there for summer school. Otherwise, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Never did off-campus housing, but it always seemed like it would cost too much. Not worth the hassle.

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."
