4 College Freshman

Local Area: Ann Arbor is filled with awesome restaurants and shops and they are all close to campus. Downtown is filled with students and locals and there is always something to do.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really nice apartments available off campus; however, the nice ones are extremely overpriced when compared to apartments of the same quality in East Lansing and other places. Even low quality apartments that are close to campus are outrageously expensive and I would say that most are around one thousand dollars per month.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not hear much about Greek life, I just know that some of my friends have gone to the parties and have gotten drunk and have taken drugs. I also hear that people get raped at these parties so I have not gone to any.

College Freshman

Administration: I am not very sure about the strictness at my school because I do not live in school housing and I also do not do anything illegal or trouble causing.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: easily accessible athletic facilities, two main buildings on opposite ends of campus. a lot of variety for IM sports, easy to join. Varsity athletics are very fun and popular.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: some houses are run-down and others are very nice. housing is usually reserved for second year members

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: pretty standard. the office of financial aid is helpful

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: downtown Detroit is about 45 minutes away. Ann Arbor has a small town feel but still has options, it's best to have a car to access them

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: there are really upscale restaurants a few blocks from town, but there are also great local restaurants right on campus that are affordable and delicious

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: academics were superior and i feel that i had an incredibly diverse experience. campus life and athletics were fun and engaging

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: it was demanding, but there is a lot of support available and there are many professors on the forefront of neuroscience research on campus that are willing to share information with students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: a lot of very prestigious professors and many student-friendly professors who are willing to spend extra time if students reach out

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: free blue and maize buses, use student ID. many stops both on and odd campus

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: there have been a lot of renovations to dining halls, it depends on which ones you go to--older halls don't have as many options and aren't designed as asthetically

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: many counselors and supporting staff in all departments.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: great opportunities for research, both in the hard sciences and in the arts

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: large computer labs with up to date software and monitors. always tech person around, also small stations scattered throughout campus in each building

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Amazing weather in the fall and spring. Michigan summers can be hot and humid, and the winters are beautiful but freezing and harsh.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: A lot of free space on campus, when the weather is nice it is easy to find a great spot to sit near the diag. There is a variety of study spots that range from super quiet carrels and library spots to more social group friendly spots.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Drug use was mostly alcohol. I did not personally see any illegal drugs or hear of their use besides marijuana.

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.

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."
