3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are plenty of things to do at night whether you drink or not and whether you are in greek life or not. Frat parties and bars like Skeeps are fun but not to worry if you don't have a fake id. Movie theaters are within walking distance and there's plenty of great restaurants. Plus when the weather is nice, it's great to walk the State Street and Main St areas.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Ann Arbor Culture – The culture in ann arbor is very liberal - "hippyish". Many students from the 1960s and 70s never left and they help create a hippy atmosphere. Maybe this helps create a certain charm or maybe it makes you roll your eyes and ask the 40-50 year olds to "grow up".
That being said, it is a nice college town. Probably very typical.

Transportation: The transportation options are great. There are university buses that run between North Campus-Medical Campus- Central Campus and Athletic Campus. It's free and very convenient (timely). We also have access to city of Ann Arbor transportation, which is great and also free for students.

5 College Senior

Academics: Awesome SWK graduate program as it is #1 in the nation. Knowledgeable and experienced faculty. MANY internship opportunities and the school of swk truly assists their students with any academic needs they may have.

Diversity: U of M was one of the first universities to implement Affirmative Action policies and practices. It is very diverse, on purpose!

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is quality, but a little to expensive. It is cheaper to just sublet or rent an apartment with a few other students.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus. The constant flow of students, day and night, make crimes difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: can be really nice but the winter is miserable for the most part.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls are mostly thin and pretty. The guys are fun and cool and for the most part good looking.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy LS&A at U of M. It has tons of opportunities. Within this, the chemistry/biochem departments are great and very helpful. The workload is manageable if you stay on top of it.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is impossible on game weekends, and the price to park on the street at a meter is ridiculous. Meters are free after 6, and parking lots are usually free after 5, so good luck saving money before then.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Through UROP I have a paid internship through federal workstudy (credit is also available). Time can go from 3 to 15 hours a weeks, and it all depends on your sponsor. The responsibilities are what you put on yourself, your discuss with your sponsor what your abilities are and what you feel you're able to succeed with.

4 College Freshman

Majors: All that had to be done was to declare, and sign some documentation.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Ann Arbor is like heaven to live in! It has charm, quirk, and lots of local fun. I always felt safe on campus as a young woman. The sports are fantastic, of course. There's shopping, restaurants, great bars, everything you could want in a college town!

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I loved my classes, professors, curriculum and thought the work load was heavy, but doable. I think of all the classes I took in the four years I was there, I disliked two professors/classes. That's pretty good, if you ask me!

Recent Alumnus

Parking: I did not drive while I attended this school so I don't know

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The classes were big, but the professors were excellent. Students were competitive, but friendly with each other. I especially enjoyed the Honors Thesis program.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I give this grade because although at the undergrad level the university maybe diverse, at the graduate level things get a little more homogeneous.

Local Area: Ann Arbor is an alright town. It is generally safe. Downtown has some pretty nice places to eat. Briarwood Mall, while it can be exciting at first, it does get old pretty quickly. To shop, for the most part, you do have to take the bus.

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."
