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.

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.

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

There are of grassy areas to lay out and study outside (if it's warm enough). There are tons of student activities catered to any interest, and you are very supported to start an organization if you feel that the campus is lacking something.

The most unique thing about the University of Michigan is that it is a hub for all types of students in all fields. There are excellent programs in environmental sciences, art, engineering, music, sciences... There is such a diversity of people and places making it a great place to learn.

Almost all the buildings at the University of Michigan had a computer lab and a printing machine that you could easily use wirelessly with your own computer. The wireless was always available the only downside was that you had to login after a certain amount of time which can get annoying, however, there is wireless almost anywhere.

I attended University of Michigan as an in state student and was fortunate that my parents had bought the Michigan Education Trust (MET) making tuition affordable. I recommend looking into state aid and and scholarship websites.

There are many pricy options such as Panera Bread, Five Guys, Arabic restaurants, Noodles and Company, and many more options. They are all located very close to the campus so they are quite convenient. There are not really many special student discounts to these places.

Buses go everywhere and are free. Also, it is a small town so it is feasible to walk everywhere.
College Sophomore 2013-05-13T02:05:52Z
Almost everyone is from Michigan so if you are an out of state student you can feel a little isolated and left out. Everyone has a habit of showing where they are from on their hands. The plus to this school is that affirmative action does not exist so everyone who got accepted, got accepted based on merit not their race. Thus you may notice less minorities, especially hispanics.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T20:20:40Z
Buses are pretty good but could always be better, but you never have issues getting to where you need to go. Also SafeRide is available at night to and from University buildings for safe transportation.

Very highly rated academics. But also, very very tough and requires a lot of work!

Mostly safe. NEver leave your books or laptop unattended at the library

Guys & Girls:
You will find a wide range of people with all sorts of interests/personalities. I personally met my best friends here
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T19:44:45Z
A lot of fun on campus. Dorms are mediocre but social scene in the dorms leads to a great experience. Highly reccommend living on-campus at-least one year. You will meet a ton of people this way!

Michigan is full of pre-med students so if you plan on taking any science/pre-med courses, they will be difficult. Most of the other classes aren't too bad except engineering courses.

Greek life at Michigan is much more prominent than at other college campuses. There are numerous fraternities and sororities, including both 'regular,' professorial, and volunteer fraternities. It's completely up to yo if you want to participate in Greek life or not. There are definitely pros and cons to being a part of Greek life, but it's not mandatory by any means. While Greek life may offer 'a fun night out,' there are plenty of other options for fun nights out on weekends.
College Sophomore 2013-05-09T19:29:44Z
Michigan has a lot of options if you're interested in nightlife. There are obviously a lot of fraternities and sororities, so if you're looking for that scene, you won't have to go too far. There's also a couple 18-and-up and 21-and-up clubs downtown as well. There are a couple bars near by as well. But if the party scene isn't your thing, there's plenty of other stuff to do on the weekend as well! You can go see a movie, go to a UMix event, go shopping at the Mall or on State St., go see a performance from a Michigan group, or just hang with friends!
College Sophomore 2013-05-09T19:26:36Z
There are several dining halls, all with their own 'flavor.' East Quad will be reopening for the 2013-2014 school year and is suppose to have very health food options and vegan options as well. That's not to say that you can't get a yummy cheese burger or slice of delicious pizza at Mojo or North Quad. Also, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from on State St. and South University! Noodles, Five Guys, Pot Belly, Savas, Insomnia Cookies...just to name a few. There are also little 'shops' called Victors and Blue Apple where you can buy sandwiches, pizza, smoothies, and pretty much any kind of snack you're craving. You'll never go hungry at Michigan!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
