3 College Freshman

Weather: As expected, Michigan experiences long winters and lots of snow, but the weather here isn't actually as bad as people often make it out to be. Several other northern states (i.e. Minnesota and Wisconsin) experience far harsher winters.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Very few financial aid opportunities and merit scholarships are available directly through the university; however, students tend to have a fairly easy time obtaining merit and need-based scholarships from third party sources.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: As a Big Ten school with a rich athletic history, Michigan's sports scene is one of the best in the country

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug use is fairly average. Drugs are certainly available for those who want them but most students choose not to partake.

Technology: U of M does an excellent job of providing students with computers; regardless of where you are on campus, a computer lab is bound to be only a short distance away.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Nothing really compares to the academics that Michigan provides. It's fantastic

3 College Student

Technology: Good wireless access but hard to find available computers at the computer labs.

4 College Student

Diversity: It's not extremely diverse but it is very accepting.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's no secret that UMich values its football program more than any other program on campus, athletic or non-athletic. Huge profits come from the football program, which is reflected back in the athletic campus facilities. Fan support is almost overwhelming, and it's weird when people don't go to the games. UMich has incredible school spirit during sports seasons, especially football and basketball season.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's a wonderful mix here. Mostly, everyone is pretty smart, but of course there are those few ignorant people that need to reevaluate their ways of thinking. Not many people I have met are snarky or stuck up. The atmosphere here during the week is serious, but friendly. On the weekends, everyone is more relaxed and outgoing.

Administration: For me, alcohol and drug regulation in the dorms is very important. I have seen a number of people busted by campus security for underage alcohol use. There are policies that students can't sleep in public places in the dorms, which I don't agree with, but I usually sleep in my room or in someone else's anyway.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: When it isn't rush week, sometimes Greek life is barely noticeable. The Greek community focuses on campus involvement and betterment, so it's not just a system for throwing huge parties.

Off-Campus Dining: Being in Ann Arbor is fantastic for local, vegetarian, vegan, or ethnic options. There are a number of great Indian restaurants, vegetarian specialty restaurants, as well as Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean restaurants. A number of chains are present, but they do not overwhelm the plethora of local restaurants. The local restaurants are a bit more expensive, as most of them are specialty restaurants or they serve local, organic foods.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What I love about UMich is Ann Arbor itself. The town is very welcoming and open. For someone with a marginalized identity, Ann Arbor is a town in which you don't have to be on the defensive all the time. Being a queer person in Ann Arbor doesn't make me feel like I am in danger all the time. The University has liberal policies and quite an extensive anti-discrimination policy that encompasses a number of identities.

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."
