4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I typically do not feel unsafe on campus. Be smart (don't walk alone in obscure areas at night girls) and you should be fine! Some theft, but that is typical of most universities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Their is a huge variety of dining options. The dining halls do a good job of incorporating all the students' needs and have a variety of different ethnic and healthy options.

Parking: Parking on campus is extremely expensive. As a freshman, I have a car and don't even bring it to school because the price is so outrageous.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Ann Arbor may be full of places to live, but just like everything else in the city, it is very expensive. The places seem to always be clean though, and you can find what you're looking for in walking distance no problem. If you look father outside the city, the prices will go down, and students can ride city busses for free

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places to choose from you will never go hungry. A lot of the places give discounts to students. The downside is that everything is more expensive in Ann Arbor

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Dining halls get old sometimes, but each dorm building has other food options within it. For example, Bursley has the Blue Apple, which has the best pizza on campus, and also has microwaveable dinners and snacks. Throughout central campus there are also fast food places inside the Union and Legue, which you can you your dining dollars at.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are hard, but you really do learn a lot. Often times you feel that you have to work very hard for a grade you don't deserve which is unfair, but otherwise the classes are manageable.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I love being in the center of the town, it gives you places to go both on and off campus that are within walking distance! There are plenty of places to go outside and walk around, plenty of activities always going on including different festivals, there are lots of shops and museums and great restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many sets of new apartments in Ann Arbor that are very nice, however they are quiet expensive. Other options may be cheaper but are older and run down and often a far walk from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love that the University offers a neuroscience program which is uncommon. Most professors are great and will help you succeed, however some assign too much work for the number of credits the class offers, in particular labs, and often the GSI that teaches does not speak English fluently.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It will challenge you and force you to work hard, but success is possible and feels great and well deserved.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Really easy to get financial aid if you live out of state... if you live in state, though, GOOD LUCK. I couldn't get any financial aid as an in-state student even though I had a 4.0 GPA in high school and a 30 on the ACT. It's nuts.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty average-- easy to get a place if you sign up on time. Lots of ads around campus so you always know where/when to start looking. Close to campus, easy commute.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Such a cute small town. Very unique (there are tiny "fairy doors" lining the streets. Discrete... but pay attention and look for them!). The locals love college students; lots for teens to do. Quiet and fun at the same time. Great college town!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food where I live is gross! But if you go to other places on central campus, the food improves and is more of a B+ rating.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Having your own car in Ann Arbor is a liability. There's free public transportation because there's just too many people packed into this crowded city for everyone to have a car. Parking is expensive and limited. Save yourself the pain and suffering.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: There are just too many people for you to get an individualized experience. It's up to you to make your way through. That sounds pretty much like every other college experience in the grand scope of things.

Off-Campus Dining: There are an absolute metric ton of restaurants in Ann Arbor catering to every whim and will your palette could possibly need. Ethnic food? Name your country. Vegetarian or vegan? I can name at least 3 restaurants that specifically cater to them. U of M's choices are excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Worth It? The classes are rigorous, large, and full of GSIs, but overall, the entire experience seems fairly procedural. There is no individual assistance at the undergrad level, but the reputation of the school is expected to carry the weight of the degree.

3 College Freshman

Technology: In the dorms, the wi-fi can be a little shaky. But if you join the "M-Wireless" network, you're guaranteed internet access pretty much anywhere on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: EVERYONE goes to football games at Michigan. Football saturdays are the best days of the week. There is so much school spirit and fun, many students say it is their favorite part of attending u of m.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Michigan definitely has a pretty high standard. While not considered ivy league, the material and workload given here are large/challenging enough to stand out among other college education.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Computers are never too far away, no matter where you are on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Race and Ethnicity courses are required at the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor. There are many different cultures represented, but the majority is white.

4 College Junior

Academics: My major is fairly common (similar to neuroscience), but I love the classes that I get to take for it. I love psych, and there are a huge variety of psych classes that I can choose from to meet my requirements. The work load isn't too bad, and there are many research opportunities as well within the field. The only con is that because it is so popular, it is difficult to get into certain classes you want during registration time.

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."
