5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Ann Arbor has so many food options. And because of it being a college town, everything is open super late which is a big advantage.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: "Residence halls require students to attend "informational sessions" which aren't too helpful.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is fine. Nothing too special. But Ann Arbor is a great location

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of life at Michigan, but people who do not participate frown upon those who do. I love belonging to a larger community.

Campus Housing: Some still need to be renovated - there's a large gap in quality between the old and new.

Off-Campus Housing: There's a lot out there, but there are also a lot of people looking at the same time. Pricing is pretty high, even for the older houses & apartments. It's possible to find something more affordable than on-campus/dorms, but it requires a dedicated search & knowledge of the area.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Overall, campus is a safe place. There are some places that I would feel uncomfortable walking alone at night, but that is mostly because of their isolated nature, not because it is a dangerous community.

Athletics: Michigan athletics are the best! Tradition & excellence create a fun, energetic environment for students and fans.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a lot of spirit and that shows through sports. Cheering on for our varsity teams.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There's always something to do, not only for those people who are social but also for those who don't want to interact much.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They recently put a lot of money into the new facilities. On gamedays, people get crazy. Go blue!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is pretty high, but you pay for location most of the time.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The system of "rush" for girls definitely needs to change, although I don't know in what way. I think it is a pretty superficial system, but it is hard to come up with a way to make it work with thousands of girls rushing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of gems in this town! So many places to try.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I love how it can feel both like a small town and like a big city at the same time.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school makes a conscious effort to meet the needs of the students, but I would say there needs to be a change in the way the students think about the seriousness of some of the things that go on.

Party Scene: You can find somewhere to go any night of the week

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on north campus, which was about a 5-10 minute bus ride to most of my classes. Most people hate living on north because it can get annoying to trek back and forth sometimes, but I am glad I was put in Bursley. You meet a lot of people because it is a social dorm, and it is nice to be on a quiet part of campus sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I must admit I am in the best dorm on campus, east quad, so my experience has been very good but I would be very upset if I were living in Mary Markley. It seems a bit unfair that people in Markley have to pay the same price that I do for a much lower quality dorm.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am still currently in the dorms but I have signed a lease for the fall semester of 2015 and am very excited to live in the apartment.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Typically, if I am looking to go out I can be found at a house and/or co-op party. I try to steer clear of fraternity parties as they are a bit too aggressive for my taste, but I have fun pretty much wherever I go.

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."
