5 College Senior

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

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.

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!

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Pretty good. There are plenty of computer labs to work on. They even have something called virtual sites where you can basically use a university computer on your own personal computer. This is especially helpful when you need to use a certain software that is not worth paying hundreds of dollars for.

1 College Freshman

Weather: This is very unpredictable. It could be very warm one day and incredibly awful the next day. Very hard to stand. There are never snow days here because a law student sued many years ago about tuition reasons that they decided to never do it again.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can either find off campus housing where you don't need to worry about transportation issues for a pretty high price, or you might find cheaper ones where it is not convenient. The AATA bus system is not the best. You miss one bus, you wait another half hour at least. At night, you will most likely have to wait another hour.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Ann Arbor is one of the more vibrant college towns you will find. There are plenty of local restaurants and bars with varied atmospheres and food choices. There are also museums and art exhibits to add a little culture to your time on campus. Everything is also within relative walking distance, making it easy to get to everything.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The Sports Management major was full of good classes and professors. But the opportunities outside of class were not as plentiful as other majors. Overall it was a worthwhile experience and major but you need to actively seek out opportunities for networking.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The professors were all well-informed and helpful. The class load was varied and educational and the resources allowed all students to succeed as long as they were willing to work at it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: "GO BLUE!" Definitely a phrase that will be embedded in one's memory (or eardrums, for that matter). Clearly, fan support and school spirit are never lacking in this university. Not to mention, we have the largest stadium in the United States, aptly called the "Big House." Need I say more?

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are computer sites in most dormitories, libraries and large academic buildings, which makes it accessible. In addition, there are both Macs and PCs available, which is great when you have a preference between the two. The operating systems are up to date (as far as I know), and there are enough printers, scanners and copiers. One would not need to bring his/her own printer (unless color printing is desired). However, having a laptop would be convenient for classwork, etc. Wireless access can be spotty in some areas, but it's reliable for the most part.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm lucky, and I live in MoJo in the Hill Neighborhood, so we have our own dining hall and it's really close to CC Little and Central Campus. From what my friends on North Campus have to say, it's not too terrible, but you do have to take the bus to get to Central, and if you're going to party on the weekends, you have to remember when the buses run until otherwise you're stuck on Central for the night.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm still undecided with my major, but I am pre-med so it will definitely be science-related. Right now, I'm in the midst of fulfilling all of my pre-reqs but so far, so good.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Depending on which courses you take, you can either get a really good professor, or a poor one. I've been fortunate enough to have pretty good professors thus far, and even though I've taken 18 credits both semesters I've been here, the workload have been manageable.
