5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Alumni network is huge! Keep talking to alumni and making connections and internships and entry-level jobs are more accessible.

Health & Safety: Campus crime happens occasionally, about once a month on average. Personal safety isn't bad for men, but for women, never walk alone at night!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Some fraternities and sororities are nice, friendly, and approachable people. I could speak differently for the others.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is amazing with phenomenal academics, athletics, and a social life during the week and on weekends! I have met the smartest people in the world here who have pushed me to become the person that I am today.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Though the student population, focus on Greek life and sports is frustrating to me, I wouldn't trade my class and professor opportunities for anything. I have had wonderful teachers, even for pre-reqs. The classes are generally set up as lecture and discussion style, with lectures ranging from 100-400 people, and discussions with less than 30 students. The professors are experts, the grad student instructors want to help you succeed, and the material offered is the best available.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: U-M has the largest alumni network in the country, and this definitely helps when it comes to finding jobs post-graduation. You can't go anywhere without meeting fellow wolverines. A degree from UMich is highly sought after, and employers recognize this. There are constantly recruitment activities and employers on campus, and the university keeps everyone very informed.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Ann Arbor is definitely a college town, but it is a populated city with diverse residents. There are reported robberies, muggings, and thefts everyday. It's not really safe to be walking alone at night, especially for women. However, there are blue lights on the street lamps if you feel unsafe, and police are supposed to be there within a couple minutes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: While some people love living in the dorms and have a positive experience, mine was very negative. I lived in Markley, which is one of the oldest dorms on campus. It's known for having cockroaches and no air conditioning, neither of which were pleasant. It's also one of the more social dorms, but my floor was entirely cluttered with very loud and obnoxious sorority girls. Tuesday, 4AM? There's screaming. Always.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at U-M is pretty disgusting. It revolves around alcohol, drugs, and rape culture. The majority of students involved are the incredibly entitled, snobbish kids. The president himself cannot stand the university's association with this environment.

Athletics: U-M is known for athletics, especially football. The facilities are some of the best in the country, as are the recruited players. The school spirit is unmatched by any other, though it's hard to be involved in the school's sports if you're not a top-notch athlete.

Overall Experience: I love that U-M has so many incredible opportunities, but the student population can often be frustrating. Many kids come from extremely wealthy families, and their entitled attitudes shine through.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You can tell that all of the professors here are just brilliant in their field. Sometimes for discussion sections of larger courses, the graduate student who is teaching it may not seem as qualified. Overall, the variety of courses is great and topics are so interesting. Some students complain about large class sizes, however this has not been bothersome to me at all.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Graduating with a degree from this university will open up numerous job opportunities. We have the largest alumni base in the world so the connections are endless and the rigor of the curriculum at the University of Michigan is well known.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have a number of resources at the University Health Services building on campus, and there is also a growing number of mental health resources. Outdoors on campus there is a blue light system in place so students can call campus police from walking essentially anywhere. Additionally, there are Safe Ride options that will drive you from one campus building (a library) to another campus building (your dorm) when it is late at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Helen Newberry Residence. I did not request an all-girls dorm, however I was placed in this location. Luckily it was directly across from Angell Hall and the majority of my classes freshman year. I did make some great friends living in my dorm, however the rooms were very small and the building was very old.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a member of Alpha Phi's Theta chapter here at the University of Michigan. Although my social life does not revolve around my involvement in the greek community, I have had the opportunity to get involved with many Greek events on campus. Additionally, I've made incredible friends both within my chapter, in other sororities on campus, and fraternity brothers from our mixers. I especially enjoyed events held during Greek Week when the whole community comes together to raise money for various philanthropies.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Nothing beats a football Saturday in the Big House. I am a baton twirler for the University of Michigan Marching Band, so I am fortunate enough to have the chance to experience many of the sporting events from field or court level. With Coach Harbuagh transforming Michigan football this past year, I have seen student involvement and support for all things athletics grow immensely. It is incredible to be a part of such storied football program and to cheer them on while performing with the band.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the unique environment that Ann Arbor has to offer. The course I'm enrolled in are both interesting and extremely challenging. Overall, I would choose Michigan easily if I had the chance to do it over again. The school spirit is unbeatable and the people here have pushed me to be the absolute best and brightest I can be.

Greek Life: Greek life is not a big part of campus life. The students in Greek life are pretty much like non-Greek life students.

Health & Safety: Especially with havng lived in Fletcher Hall, it does not feel safe walking around alone. Everyday we get updates about armed robberies or some other crime being committed and they are all so close to or on campus. It's worrying.
