University of Michigan-Dearborn is "above-average" in my opinion. Of course, it's not as challenging as the UM-Ann Arbor campus, (which may be a plus for some students, and a negative for others).

Overall, the instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. The students are nice, but it seems harder to make friends that you spend time with outside of class at UM-Deadborn. However, UM-D does offer a lot of student involvement opportunities, which I highly recommend if you want to add to your overall "college experience".

The campus is well-maintained and extremely safe. Parking isn't too much of a hassle, especially compared to parking at other nearby colleges/universities.

Overall, I believe that University of Michigan-Dearborn is a decent school, and I recommend it to anyone who wishes to further their education and reach their educational goals!

Ha! Don't be Black or Middle Eastern here you really won't fit in. There's not enough diversity here at all. They don't care to make it grow either. I'm Black, have been shunned in social groups and in class. When I tried to join a sorority "Phi Mu" it was 30 whites to 3 blacks. You can tell the Black girls really wanted to fit in cause they were talking like them and trying to hard. As far as admissions go, I just had a friend with a 3.7 GPA try to get in for Accounting also a Black minority got rejected. They used to have the nationally recognized AKA sorority here but the Greek counselor said all the 10 members graduated. This should give you an idea of the diversity on campus. Middle Eastern women is almost not even noticed. Despite it being in dearborn, I barely seen any middle eastern people here.

I honestly LOVE UM-Dearborn! Even though I haven't actually started my fall classes yet and this is my first year going to the university, I took a summer class and it really gave me a good opportunity to see how classes are and how the classroom works. The summer math bridge program was very helpful towards me and other students because a lot of my friends have told me about how their colleges do not have these kind of opportunities for them. I feel extremely lucky and excited to be going to a school that is actually meant for me. To be surrounded by people in a environment where you feel like success is the only option and your peers/teachers want you to succeed is truly amazing.
