3 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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!

Overall Experience: I really like the campus. I like the layout of it and how it is not in the middle of a city. It is well organized and put together. It is simple to find your way on campus. I have joined a great business professional student organization and I wouldn't change a thing about my choice.

Overall Experience: I like attending the University of Michigan-Dearborn. However, it is a commuter school so sometimes it does not feel like a college environment. It is harder to make friends that you can see outside of classes because students commute here from all over Michigan.

Overall Experience: 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.

Overall Experience: The campus is clean and the staff is great.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love attending the University of Michigan-Dearborn. It is a small campus close to home, and with small class sizes the professors know your name and really care about helping you. The professors are extremely knowledgable in what they teach, and are approachable. I have made so many new friends and met amazing people while going to school here, and I am more than satisfied with my decision to attend the next four years there.

Overall Experience: It's a great school that gives you plenty of room to grow and reach your full potential. You have great teachers that can help you and it's not an overwhelming atmosphere at all.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have had very good experiences, but I am still not sure what to expect.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The flexibility of scheduling is great for working professionals with families. The professors are commonly past or present working professionals. The classes aren't very challenging. The school advertises as though it is an extension of the Ann Arbor campus but it isn't anywhere near as prestigious. Prospective students should take this into serious consideration. However, comparatively, the school has a great cost to benefit ratio over many of the other area programs which also offer night and online courses.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love how small the school is and how the teacher to student ratio is great!

Off-Campus Dining: I have only been to a few off campus places.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have not had any hassles with the administration.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I really like how this school automatically awards you scholarships based on your stats when you are admitted.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Just from what I've heard from friends, some people have their own places near campus but otherwise people still live at home.

Off-Campus Dining: UM Dearborn is really close to downtown Dearborn and The Hill so there are a lot of food options that are really close by and well-priced!

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Even as a commuter campus, people come together a lot for small apartment parties or off campus Greek parties and it's always a great time!

4 College Freshman

Administration: From personal experience, I've joined a sorority and it's helped to make friends and even help with my study habits. I'm glad that this school encourages participation in student organizations since it helps with diversity and collaboration across campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school will offer you scholarships based on your GPA and ACT score from high school, if they're high enough. There are a lot of scholarship opportunities otherwise to apply for so access to scholarships is always available.

Campus Food: The University Center has a nice variety of food to choose from, but the prices are too high for "snack foods". It's convenient since you don't have to go off campus to get food, but you actually have to go off campus to get food since the food is too expensive and it's not that great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Union at Dearborn is right across from main campus, but it isn't owned by the school. I lived there for my freshman year and plan on moving back in for my sophomore year with a girl I met in my sorority. The rooms are incredible and the closest thing to a dorm since it's so close to school, but they're really more of an apartment because of the quality, and since the rent prices are pretty crazy. It was great to have my own room and bathroom since I didn't really care for my roommates. Be warned, the rent varies based on the floor plan, and the prices are a little high.

Health & Safety: There's not much help for sexual assault victims.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fieldhouse caters to athletes & non-athletes.
