5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Amazing alumni network, lots of opportunities for recruiting/ internships

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: University Health Services, CAPS, and the Department of Public Safety don't do a great job.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in Markley, which is probably the smallest dorm which has not been redone, however my younger sister lives in West Quad and it's super nice.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority, and I'm definitely glad I joined one, because I met a ton of people and it really made a big school feel small. That being said, there are a lot of problems with Greek Life on campus, and we don't have a great reputation.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't change a thing about my college experience; the University of Michigan provides the top notch resources available from a globally renowned research institution with a strong community and small school feel.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are very important at the University of Michigan, and they are incredibly well endowed. Lots of fan support and school spirit, and the athletic facilities are top notch.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've loved most of my classes and professors. That said, math classes are taught by grad students who are often very hard to understand and very unskilled as teachers, regardless of their impressive math abilities. The university tries to save money by having them teach instead of hiring actual faculty.

Health & Safety: Walking alone at night is a bit unnerving. UM does provide rides and security support at night, which is great.

Greek Life: I am biased. I despise Greek life. I am here to learn.

Overall Experience: There are some problems with the administration, especially its treatment and inclusion (or lack thereof) of minorities. There are also great opportunities for high quality education and success at Umich.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I was not pleased with my housing selection. I am paying the same price for a double that is much smaller than someone in East or South Quad. Also, I was forced to live on North Campus for sophomore year because there isn't enough room on Central Campus for returning students, which I do not believe is fair. I really think we lack when it comes to housing.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek Life currently, but because of their influence on campus, I am strongly considering rushing next fall.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Big House Football is definitely an experience I couldn't live without. One of my favorite aspects of this school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academics are great, however I have had a lot of difficultly with scheduling and housing. The lottery system they use is a joke. During my freshman year, I've been screwed over more than once.

Health & Safety: I would say that in the next couple of years, my ranking of three stars will go up - sexual safety initiatives have really started to grow this year.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are some fantastic areas to live on Michigan's campus (East Quad, South Quad, Mosher-Jordan), but most freshmen get put on north campus (Bursley, Baits, Northwood) - north campus is a 10-minute bus ride away from central campus, and it's really inconvenient to live up there.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I can't say enough about how much I've loved my time at U of M. I've expanded my mind in ways I didn't think possible before attending, and have met some of my best friends. I feel that this school is truly a perfect balance of tough, challenging academics, and extra-curricular activities; Michigan produces well-rounded students that are prepared to take on the real world after graduation.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I absolutely love the atmosphere during the fall because of football season - everyone is so excited about the Wolverines, and you can feel the school spirit when you walk onto campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I loved most of the courses I took, the ones I didn't I had to take to fulfill diversity requirements. The professors are all really passionate about what they teach and most are helpful if you go talk to them. I didn't mind the larger class sizes, you are broken up into discussion groups for every class anyway. You can always make your school feel smaller but not larger.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Everyone knows the Maize and Blue.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: My friends and I like to go out and have a good time, but we don't put ourselves in stupid situations. Nonetheless, things can happen and have happened to people, but I don't think anymore than what I would hear in other cities.

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."
