Weather: The weather is very unpredictable and you can get all four seasons in one day. However there is nothing prettier than a fall day in Ann Arbor.

Off-Campus Housing: While the prices for living off-campus are pretty high, a majority of the houses, apartments, and condos are really nice and worth the price if there is good location.

Campus Food: For the most part it is pretty good, it just depends on which dining hall you eat at. Mojo, East Quad, and North Quad have the best dining halls.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The buses are great most of the time as long as you know the bus schedule.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: While our teams may not always be good, we always have school spirit.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Ann Arbor is the best place to live hands down. The locals are all friendly and the atmosphere leans towards hipsterish but it is still a great and fun place to be. There are always events happening.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The sororities all have nice houses and and all of the frats know how to throw great parties!

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The wifi is sometimes unreliable and you get a printing quota that is a lot smaller than needed.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The boys and girls are average on the attractive scale. In greek life the guys and girls are much more attractive.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Mostly white people, but there are many different ethnicities and lots of international students.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: We have a couple of awesome bars but they ID at most.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: U of M is known for hard academics and being the best

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There is everything you could possibly want to major in, although if you want to get into the B-school you need above a 3.8 which is extremely hard.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Depends on where you live, North Campus is the worst

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some are amazing like east and north quad. Then you have mojo. Markley, north, and west quad dining halls suck.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: parties can always be found, especially if you know people. people are generally very friendly so it's easy to meet people in different places that can hook you up with parties. at frat and house parties, no one ever pays to drink it's very convenient. also, welcome week, there are parties on every corner every night of the week. it's the best week of your life

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: i chose not to rush because i like deciding what parties i go to but i have a ton of friends both involved in and not in greek life and we all go out together. it is easier to get into frat parties if you're a girl than a guy, in which case you generally need to be friends with that frat. being a girl geed though is a great time and you don't have to join a sorority to party at all

4 College Freshman

Administration: the police officers around campus will pretty much leave you alone unless you're being obnoxiously loud or belligerent. just a note for avoiding MIPs, don't EVER walk down the sidewalk with a solo cup, you are almost guaranteed to get mipped. Also, don't sit down on the sidewalk even if you're just tired. otherwise, if you are smart, you'll be fine!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: as the dining halls get renovated, they become much tastier but overall the food is decent. the cookies are always to die for though.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: there is a strong hook-up culture here but many people also have long-term relationships as well. personally, i think it's more fun to go out if you're single but it really doesn't matter.

Athletics: GO BLUE FOREVER. game days cannot be beat; the football tailgates are an unreal experience. sneaking into the Big House to stand on the field is also a rite of passage ;)

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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."
