I typically don't engage in any illegal activities while I'm at school, or place myself in situations where I might be pressured to do them--so I haven't had any run-ins with campus police myself, and I don't know that any of my friends have either. As long as you are prudent about what you're doing and who you're spending time with, I think you're in good shape.

There are a lot of really nice places to live near campus, but for the most part they are expensive. If you are looking for a more affordable option, the quality will be considerably lower. Houses are typically good for when you are planning on living with multiple friends, but apartments are more private (although they cost a lot more).

The dining halls are delicious, and many are open throughout the day. The cafes and "convenience store"-type places on campus are good, but overpriced. Ann Arbor as a whole has more restaurants within walking distance than I know what to do with!

U of M offers free busing around campus and around the Ann Arbor area, which is very convenient for students. The only problem is transportation late at night, but there are other options available instead of the buses.

The FAFSA process is much too long and complicated. I did not receive much financial aid for my first year (even though I'm paying for my own education) and received no financial aid for my upcoming second year.

Being in Michigan, the weather is usually unpredictable. Last semester there was sunshine, rain, sleet, high winds, and varying of temperatures in the time span of 2 days. The winter is snowy and slippery. It can be difficult to get to classes but the bus system is pretty efficient. When the weather is sunny, Ann Arbor is the best place to be. People are constantly outside, playing with Frisbees, shopping, going to the Arboretum, or just hanging out.

Numerous computer labs can be crowded at times but there is usually another lab not far away.

Ann Arbor is a great town with an amazing local atmosphere! There are so many affordable restaurants, amazing museums, and so many things to do. Shopping is great - you can either shop on campus or hop on a city bus to go to the nearest mall (which students get to ride free with their Mcard). The town is very safe as there is campus and city police roaming around. Plus, they have systems that directly contact police located all around campus. Michigan sports is great - there are a ton of opportunities to go to games (some free of charge!). Overall, the town is absolutely fantastic!

The places around campus are fairly good, considering it is college. The best would have to be North Quad, although it is always packed. Coming in second would be Mojo. There is lots of variety. For north campus there is only one dining hall to chose from. It is Bursley. It is not so bad though because it is open throughout the entire day. There is average variety and average quality. My advice is to get a meal plan with more dining dollars than meals. You can get better food and don't have to actually get a meal.

Campus life at UofM is amazing. The parties are awesome and there is so much going on for get togethers and stuff hosted by the university.

The wireless on campus is pretty good and you don't necessarily need your own printer. However, it is very nice to have your own computer. The issue I have with the computers on campus is that they do not allot lsa students with enough printing pages and if you have an issue with pages printing blank or miss printing the department that handles printing pages is terrible. Most of the time you don't get those pages back.

The campus is beautiful. The facilities are pretty good. The only thing I don't enjoy that much is the track in the CCRB.

Most people would say that Michigan is a very diverse school, but that isn't true. There are many people from different backgrounds and areas of the world, but those people tend to stay with each other. There isn't a ton of intermingling between those of different backgrounds..
College Sophomore 2013-05-24T22:15:29Z
AMAZING variety of high quality restaurants on main street, state street, and south u!! You will NEVER run out of options.
College Sophomore 2013-05-24T22:08:48Z
The dining halls get old quickly. MoJo has a lot of options and yummy cookies. North Quad is a good place to go for variety and healthy eats (plus the best salad bar). But if you want actually good food your best bet is to venture out to the restaurants on State Street, South U, or Main Street.

Parking is mostly a problem, it is scarce, and very expensive if you can secure it. I did not bring a vehicle to campus this year and do not plan to next year.

Right now I am enjoying my Honors College experience very much. I am planning on double majoring in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, and Environmental Studies as a pre-law curriculum. The English classes I have taken thus far are excellent. I am scheduled to take a core Geology class in a U of M sanctioned program at Jackson Hole, Wyoming next month.

It was a challenging process but I did receive scholarship assistance. I hope that this process will open up more financial support for me.
College Sophomore 2013-05-23T17:19:46Z
The U of M Honors College has a robust English & Writing curriculum. The workload was very challenging but worthwhile in every aspect. I enjoyed my instructors and learned a great deal in my first year. Already they are supporting my academic goals.

Health & Safety:
There is a significant emphasis on safety, health and well-being at U of M, and I feel safe nearly every day. The only exception might be during this year's home basketball games and the "first come, first served" long lines waiting to enter the student section of the arena. More care and attention might be given to that somewhat stressful process.
College Sophomore 2013-05-23T17:08:38Z
I am enrolled in the U of M Honors College. It is an excellent academic setting, and I have enjoyed my freshman year. I have a high regard for the teaching standards and overall education quality here.

I am a Communication Studies major and the program is pretty good. Communications is such a broad topic, and the school does a pretty good job offering classes in a variety of areas, including marketing, journalism, film, broadcasting, etc. However, I think the intro classes are pretty repetitive and can do a better job of focusing on different aspects as well as more recent trends. The community is awesome, however, and everyone is very friendly. The male population of this major remains smaller but is growing. The workload is not that bad, consisting mainly of tests and essays. As long as you keep up with the readings and lectures, it's fairly easy to get an A.

The diversity at this school is unbelievable. Although the school continues to consist mainly of Caucasian, Michigan-native students, there is a great mix of international and out of state students from all over the world and country. Coming from California, I notice that many of the schools have become dominated by Asian populations and being an Asian myself, I really appreciate that Michigan is not like that and I have the opportunity to interact with all different kinds of people.

Every time I thought my application was complete, I would receive an email stating that I was missing a certain document and to submit it as soon as possible. But once I turned those in, the process was pretty smooth. I am only disappointed when discovering that some students received excess financial aid (enough to buy a laptop or iPad) while others, like me, who are out of state and in need of more aid, did not receive as much.

Greek life is a huge part of the University of Michigan. We have a huge Greek presence on campus and it is especially lively during football season. I've never rushed for or have been in a sorority, but I have encountered many in my classes
Sorry, there are no reviews.
