The Center for Russian and East European Studies is a small, cross-departmental concentration. They are very enthusiastic to work with and help students and know everyone since the number of students majoring in this degree is relatively small. Because the classes are drawn from other departments, there is opportunity for a wide range of knowledge, or the ability to narrow things down. A lot of the classes are understandably offered through the Slavic department and the professors there are excellent. In all, I have felt a lot of personal interest in me and in helping me succeed by being part of this Center.

I chose University of Michigan for the CREES program. I'm very pleased with the program, classes that I've taken, professors, and advisers. I have been looking into adding another major though and they don't offer specifically what I'm looking for, international relations. I could do a poli sci degree with an international focus, but there are actually few classes offered that fit that category.

Public transport is pretty good. The business run usually on time and have a variety of routes. It is somewhat hard to time the buses on campus through, so usually I had to take a return route throught the bus station downtown, which can be a bit of a walk. But bus fare is free with your ID card, so you can't argue with that.

The only good weather is basically the first week or two of school. Once mid-fall or winter hits, temperatures drop drastically. Just to give some insight, it hasn't stopped snowing for the past week and a half, and just a week or so ago it hit -17 degrees in the early morning (7:00)

My answers may be a little biased being greek myself, but many greek organizations do go out and try to make a difference through volunteer work, fundraising for philanthropy events, etc. Also, most of the large parties are thrown in greek housing.

Dining halls are not all the same. North Quad and MoJo have good variety. Bursley and South Quad are pretty good. Most have good variety and quality. You can always find decent food. I like that you can go to any dining hall - not just your own.

I don't see/encounter any drug use among students. But I do see old hippy-types smoking weed.

I feel as if this user answered the question above in a very straight to the point answer. I feel they could of elaborated more about the computers and mentioned the nextwork reliability and speed which they seemed to have left out.

User 1234 started off the paper well with a great opening sentence but as they progressed the essay only focused on race even though the opening sentence also included relgion. They only spoke of white students rather than the other races that are also at the University of Michigan. The university is one of the most diverse schools in the world and the fact that this user was only able to speak in his opinion about one race makes him very ignorant to the fact that there are other ethnicities.

Example User 1234 described the looks of the guys and girls at his school but did not describe any of the other topics asked in the question above. He was very short and to the point and did not elaborate on other topics that would of made his writing more interesting.

The athletic facilities are top of the line, the football stadium being the biggest and best in the country. I consider any facility I find to be the nicest I have ever entered. I think there are a lot more students who are willing and demanding to use the athletic facilities or participate in athletics than space we have open.

Overall, the computers work very well. The wireless connection could be much better though. It tends to be very slow at times.

Biochemistry was an awesome major. I took interesting, challenging classes, and the UROP program allowed me to do undergrad research for credit, which helped me find a great mentor and more research opportunities to prepare me for grad school.

Ann Arbor is gray. It has two more weeks of overcast weather than Minneapolis. It has one more than Madison. November is depressing and dark and gray. Also, one April there was a blizzard that interfered with finals week.

Michigan has earned a reputation for academic excellence. Classes are rigorous, standards are high, instructors are fair, and opportunities for challenging one's intellect abound.

Ann Arbor is an excellent college town, with great dining options and and extremely walkable campus.

There are lots of restaurants, and you can generally find something of quality to suit what you're in the mood for, from Chinese, to Thai, to Pizza, to Ethiopian!

I had a positive experience in the dorms. I was lucky enough to end up with roommates that I liked, and chose to dorm in a place where I only shared my bathroom with a couple other girls. What I found was that the trade off with community bathrooms is that they tended to have a more social and connected experience, so both dorm experiences more or less evened out. I also had a larger dorm than some of my friends at other schools.

I love being an acting major. Despite the various frustrations some experience on things like the politics of the program or its meshing with other SMTD departments, I would say it is overall a very solid program that provides a diverse variety of tools and opportunities. The other thing that sets it apart is the myriad of opportunities there are to get out and perform, in student organizations as well as main stage shows, which allow for practical experience!

There are a lot of parties, but they all tend to sort of be the same. If you like the frat party sort of feel (and don't mind that sometimes, you simply won't be able to get into the parties the aforementioned frats throw), then you'll be fine. If you want something a little more diverse, however, it's a bit hard to find. Also, the scene most likely turns from fratty parties to bars towards the end of your college experience.

I think the dining halls are great over all. My pickier friends complained sometimes about lack of quality or variety, but overall, I found I could always find something delicious to eat. I also appreciated that there were always certain staples, like a salad bar for if I wanted to eat healthfully, or pizza/pasta/soft serve frozen yogurt for when I wanted comfort food.

I am currently in LSA at the University of Michigan and the process of getting into this program was fairly general. I did have multiple difficult essays to write but it was similar to other college applications just a little more writing. The most important criteria is being a well rounded person, they look at you as a whole not just your GPA. Some tips I would offer would be to make sure you have others review your essays and ask their opinion before submitting the application. It is a large part of the admission process.

I have not had an internship yet but in the future I do plan on having one. I think it would be a great way to decide if medical school is the right choice for me, I do have concerns that my grades are not up to par to get an intership though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
