There are just too many people for you to get an individualized experience. It's up to you to make your way through. That sounds pretty much like every other college experience in the grand scope of things.

There are an absolute metric ton of restaurants in Ann Arbor catering to every whim and will your palette could possibly need. Ethnic food? Name your country. Vegetarian or vegan? I can name at least 3 restaurants that specifically cater to them. U of M's choices are excellent.

Worth It? The classes are rigorous, large, and full of GSIs, but overall, the entire experience seems fairly procedural. There is no individual assistance at the undergrad level, but the reputation of the school is expected to carry the weight of the degree.

In the dorms, the wi-fi can be a little shaky. But if you join the "M-Wireless" network, you're guaranteed internet access pretty much anywhere on campus.

EVERYONE goes to football games at Michigan. Football saturdays are the best days of the week. There is so much school spirit and fun, many students say it is their favorite part of attending u of m.

Michigan definitely has a pretty high standard. While not considered ivy league, the material and workload given here are large/challenging enough to stand out among other college education.

Computers are never too far away, no matter where you are on campus.

Race and Ethnicity courses are required at the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor. There are many different cultures represented, but the majority is white.

My major is fairly common (similar to neuroscience), but I love the classes that I get to take for it. I love psych, and there are a huge variety of psych classes that I can choose from to meet my requirements. The work load isn't too bad, and there are many research opportunities as well within the field. The only con is that because it is so popular, it is difficult to get into certain classes you want during registration time.

Health & Safety:
U of M is a really safe campus. Though there have been the crime alerts, etc that have been sent out, the University does a great job at keeping students and staff informed about what is going on, through email, text, etc. There is also the safe ride and safe walk service that is free for students that need to get home late at night.
College Senior 2013-01-04T23:10:52Z
Athletics are a huge part of U of M with both a great football and basketball team. There is also the CCRB and NCRB (for both North and Central Campus) that is free for students.

The academics are really good, definitely one of the top notch curriculums in the country. I feel that the study areas are kind of limited though, especially during finals week, when everyone's cramming into the graduate and undergraduate libraries, and there really aren't too many additional study areas at a good location. Also, though some of the professors are great, others are not as accessible to their students.

Guys & Girls:
There are many different people at Michigan from all types of countries, ethnicities, backgrounds. There are many different styles and looks that are amazing to observe and even incorporate into your own. It's difficult to not like someone here.
College Senior 2013-01-04T21:21:24Z
It is great. Everyone comes out and study or party.
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T19:21:11Z
luckily I dont live on North campus and thus rarely have to take the bus. But they're pretty available, and the Ride (non-university buses that are still free) can get you pretty much anywhere you want. You definitely don't need a car, especially as a freshman
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T19:19:49Z
lets just say we have the biggest football stadium in america, and people purposely study abroad during the winter so they don't miss football season. there is so much spirit, so much fun, it's awesome
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T19:17:31Z
the dining halls, especially mojo, are alright. Sometimes you get sick of them, but there's a ton of food places near campus to spice it up. I'd suggest getting the lowest meal plan.
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T19:13:39Z
They're very accessible; in most dorms, in all the libraries, in Mason hall (the fishbowl), they're pretty much everywhere, and they're usually pretty fast. You can also wirelessly print from anywhere on campus to anywhere on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T19:11:50Z
Yeah, it's cold. Yes, this kinda stinks sometimes. But I'm from California and I can handle it, just get a down winter coat, warm boots, and gloves.

There is a huge amount of off campus housing available to students. There are three very big apartment buildings (Landmark, U-Towers and Zaragon) which are extremely close to campus and very new. There are also many houses and smaller apartment buildings all relatively close to campus that are reasonably priced. Most landlords are very friendly and helpful. It is a very safe campus, with police officers always around.

Being in the college of engineering is definitely difficult. The first year is the hardest because it is when you are adjusting to everything and the classes are quite difficult. Although the workload is a lot, there are so many resources available to help you through it. There are tutors, office hours and study groups that are free to students and that many of them use. I recommend joining a study group for your science classes, and always use office hours for all your classes.

I haven't had an internship yet, but there are many many options available to engineering students. There are two career fairs where hundreds of companies come looking for students to fill their internship positions. There will without a doubt be a company that is interested in hiring you.
College Junior 2013-01-03T16:21:50Z
Applying to the engineering program is quite simple. On the University of Michigan application, you choose the College of Engineering and simply apply. If you get in, you are automatically enrolled in the college of engineering. Important criteria would be things such as calculus and physics classes, as well as extra curricular activities.
College Junior 2013-01-03T16:17:50Z
As an engineering major, it is definitely tough. The classes your friendship year are very difficult and are designed as "weeder classes" so you have to work extra hard to get through them. After that your classes will still be difficult, but you will start to enjoy them more. If I could do it again I would, because I know that once I graduate I know I will be able to find a job. I am pretty confident that with my degree I will find a job.

There are websites that can help students find internships. Not all internships are well paid, but they are available and help give students experience in their field.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
