3 College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship yet but in the future I do plan on having one. I think it would be a great way to decide if medical school is the right choice for me, I do have concerns that my grades are not up to par to get an intership though.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am currently undecided in my choice of major but the core classes that I have been taking are definitely a challenge but it is preparing me for the future. I do enjoy this challenge, I am never bored or thinking that this is an easy A for me. I love the challenge and the workload of my curriculum.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I'm from Michigan so I'm used to the weather and love it. For those not familiar with Michigan, though, the weather may be hard. Right now it's the end of January and 10 degrees outside. Two weeks ago it was 55. This is how Michigan works, so if you don't like it, then beware.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: There is no parking. And where there is, you have to pay for it. Parking contracts are super expensive and sometimes options are far from class. Also, Ann Arbor loves to give parking tickets.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The busing system in and around Ann Arbor is really good, except for the weekends when bus routes are severely reduced. It makes it hard for work because I close on Sundays.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Great opportunities to experience culture, history, and art through different media. Diverse student population and an endless number of student organizations. Beautiful architecture and campus landscapes. North Campus could use more attention.

4 College Junior

Weather: Fall and spring are lovely. Summers are amazing, but winters are tough.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Pros- character, walkability, neighborhoods, many unit types, access to transit options, safe and well lit streets, close to campus/restaurants/ retail/parks
Cons- very competitive, must sign lease early, expensive, small units, parking varies, maintenance/age of housing stock, apartments are old, new student housing is not quality construction but high rent

1 College Junior

Weather: Very hot in the summer, very cold in the winter--a place of extremes

2 College Junior

Parking: Sometimes hard to find a spot, and it's expensive. However, it's free past 6 every day and on sundays.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Local restaurants are located everywhere that boast a wide variety of price ranges. Streets closer to campus are for the cheaper, on the go meals and Main Street has a great selection up upscale food.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm sophomore computer engineering, I would say the course is very challenging and lot of works but the course is very interesting. Especially my engr 100 class, toy and microprocessor, many teams get to build really amazing toys.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus have all kind events, activities and club all over the campus. You won't get bored for the whole semester if you attend them. The campus provided plenty of room for them although most of them is on central.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the off campus apartment or co ops are pretty good, almost all of them have facilities such as fitness or study room. People party less than the dorm. However the rent might be a bit expensive for housing with good facilities on central campus, but cheaper up north campus.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife in Ann Arbor is an amazing experience. There is always something going on. At night there are many places that students choose to go to, but at the same time the University also has many different programs and an amazing Residence Staff that plans events for students as well if going out isn't something you are interested in.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs at the University of Michigan are not a common occurence. I have not seen any instances of drug problems on campus. The entire University of Michigan also has a non smoking policy.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The policies at the University of Michigan are uphelp very strongly. However fist time instances are usually undestood. Repeat offenders however are disciplined. So if messing up once doesn't teach you a lesson you're bound to get caught again, and it may not be a position you want to be in.

Academics: So far the classes I've had have been great. The professors are very knowledgeable and love what they do. The workload is what I expected from college, so there were no surprises. However, the registration process is terrible. Its quite frustrating getting into a class you want or need. Depending on when you registration date is, you may not be able to take classes that you need for your major unless you can get an override.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It all depends on which dining hall you eat at. Some dorms are better than others. Mojo has the most variety, North Quad has very small portions, Markley has a make your own pizza station, and Bursley has a make your own taco station. It all depends on what you like. However, restaurants in Ann Arbor are the best. There is so much to choose from. Most places will deliver to your dorm, which is awesome!

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: My school has so many clubs and organizations to choose from. There is literally something for everyone, and I love that. I am currently a member of Circle K. It is one of the best organizations and has the most wonderful people in it. Circle K is just one of the many organizations our there. Everyone always said there was so much to do at UofM, but I didn't realize the extent until I lived it myself. It is a great campus to live on!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Ann Arbor is the bomb dot com. There are so many restaurants and you'll never run out of things to do. It is literally the best college town in the world.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Partying is popular especially on game days and weekends. Drinking is more popular than smoking but you can definitely find weed without looking too far.

5 College Senior

Transportation: The university bus system is very reliable and FREE for everyone, not just students. The city of Ann Arbor also has a bus system that is very reliable and FREE for students that use their ID card.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Such a GREAT variety. So many local cuisines and original flavors for a small town feel.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Ann Arbor is one of the most culturally aware, ecologically aware cities in Michigan. It has a lively college atmosphere with great restaurants and art and music. It is also a very family friendly town with lots of resources for outdoor activities and healthy living.
