There are many computer labs that are opened 24 hours for students. Wireless access is easily available for those who have a personal computer, but the internet requires you to log in every time you want to use it, and sometimes spontaneously stops working. Printing is available, but the amount of printing is limited, and some students find it easier to bring their own instead of paying for extra pages.

There are many dining halls, which serve a varied a delicious selection of food. Unfortunately, some of those dining halls are not opened on weekends and some of them have strange hours.

School policies are pretty strict on academics, especially plagiarizing, but maybe not strict enough on drinking or drugs.

The academics at Michigan are best described as "world class". The caliber of students who are selected to attend the university are indicative of the expectations that students face every day in and out of class. Students at Michigan are expected to maintain a rigorous class schedule while also becoming heavily involved in their community.

Guys & Girls:
Both guys and girls at the university are extremely focused on there studies and will gladly sacrifice a Friday or Saturday night to study for an upcoming exam or write a looming essay. Although everyone is very goal/career oriented, they also love to have fun and are excited to let loose. As far as girls go common saying at Michigan is, "good from far but far from good."

The academics here are extremely challenging due to the fact that you are competing with some of the brightest kids in the nation who are all vying for mostly the same degrees such as business, engineering, public policy, medicine, etc.. While it's challenging, you can tell that you are receiving one of the best educations in the world and that after four years it will pay off.

Dorm are old but thats what makes it special at UM

There isn't a ton of options near to campus and if you want to find something you have to make sure you get it in the first month of school the year before. It's usually pretty expensive in the nearest apartments. The apartments and houses are close to campus which is nice.

They have a ton of funding so they provide scholarships to kids who need them, and even if you don't necessarily apply they give ones based on merit.

Getting stuck on North Campus is the worst in terms of commuting to classes and making sure you can catch the last bus at night. On the other hand, it creates a great community of kids in your hall as long as it's Bursley.

I came in as an LSA student and I'm hoping to transfer to engineering for the beginning of my sophomore year. The process to transfer seems straightforward. As far as I know, it's pretty simple. Tough? Sure, but not complicated (if that makes sense).
College Sophomore 2012-12-28T02:26:33Z
Guys & Girls:
Most girls are fairly attractive, like all of the attractive girls from the state of Michigan decided to go here. Overall, girls are above average, but there aren't many stand-outs.

Health & Safety:
Sometimes you feel unsafe when crime alerts come out, but generally you have nothing to worry about. Campus security can be strict at times, but as far as drinking goes, they don't care too much if you aren't being super obnoxious about it.

Printing is great, there are printers in almost every building on campus. Some of the dorms have computer labs in them and rarely are they full except before exams, but you will get a spot if you go in there beforeI 8. The wireless can be shoddy in some dorms but in the newer dorms it works well, overall I'd say it doesn't fail to disappoint. I would say that a laptop is necessary though as some places like the Angell Hall computer lab are full of students with nothing to do between classes so they take all the computers. Also laptops are good for taking notes in lecture. A personal printer is not necessary, but I'd suggest one if you are not living in a dorm.

Parking passes are relatively expensive. It would be very difficult for a freshman to get one. Most parking is on North Campus so you would basically have to take a bus to get to your car. Parking garages can get really expensive. Some students lease spots but sometimes they can be over a hundred dollars a month. If you're lucky maybe a friend in a house will rent one to you for a good deal. Cars are not really necessary though as everywhere is in walking distance except the super market, but unless you have a kitchen and plan on cooking it doesn't really matter. Also there are buses that take you there and around campus.

Guys & Girls:
Camopus is really diverse- good looking guys and girls mixed in with the average. You'll find jocks, party girls, greek lifers, artists, "chill" people. Ann Arbor is great because no matter who you are there will be people like you and the diversity enables you to get to know people well. Yeah, there are some very wealthy people but the snobbery is not like in high school, you can definitely escape it. There's a hook up culture but also people in committed relationships.
College Junior 2012-12-27T22:47:52Z
Parking in Ann Arbor is very poor and usually cannot be found close to your classes. Most buildings are close enough to walk, or bike to if needed. I would not recommend bringing a car to campus.
College Junior 2012-12-27T22:46:08Z
There are many resources available, however, scholarships and financial aid is limited.
College Junior 2012-12-27T22:44:17Z
Transportation is great in Ann Arbor. Between the blue campus buses and Ann Arbor transit buses you get anywhere from Ypsi to the other end of Ann Arbor. The best part is that both bus systems are totally free to students!

I'm really hoping that I'll get an internship this year. For psychology, it really depends which division you are (brain/behavior science, neuroscience, or just psychology) and how research-oriented you'd like to be. Research internships do exist, but they are very very competitive and take quite a bit of work to apply for. I'd say the closer you are to medical related fields, the easier it is to find an internship. Finding/applying to internships takes a great deal of time and effort, so start attending career fairs at least a semester ahead of time just to get the feel of things.

Declaring a psychology major is extremely easy. You sign up to attend a psychology orientation (where they tell you about the major) and then you make an appointment with your advisor. There are some prerequisite classes, which are all very clearly listed on the department website. When you go to the appointment, you fill out a short form, and then it takes a bit for it to be processed. I think most people declare in their sophomore year.
College Senior 2012-12-27T06:02:30Z
I'm pretty content with the psychology program at UM. It's a huge department, but I've managed to find my niche. I've received a lot of support from my professors, advisors, and friends. I only discovered my interest in business this past year, so if I could start over I'd go for a degree in business. People who graduate from Ross really don't have a problem finding a job, so I wish I had that degree.

As long as you maintain a reasonable composure, the police won't come after you. However, if someone reports you to an RA, they will report you to the police and you'll face consequences.

Health & Safety:
The campus is generally very safe. Most parties and incidents occur off campus. The DPS is usually around the dorms on the weekends, but they do not have an overbearing presence.
College Sophomore 2012-12-26T22:31:58Z
In freshman year, housing options are limited and of poorer quality than upperclassmen dorms. Most freshmen live on North Campus, which is not bad, but just inconvenient because you'd have to bus down to central. Upperclassmen dorms, such as North Quad, have very nice amenities. No matter where you are, the social scene is always there.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
