The University of Michigan has a motto 'Expect Respect'. Everyone is expected to follow this value and this value is one that makes me enjoy being a student at the University of Michigan. When students disrespect one another it is taken very seriously I think by everyone involved.

The Macs on campus work very well and we have a wonderful tech support team that is available throughout the day if any problems arise.

I think the University of Michigan provides a lot of different parking options for students and they are very reasonably priced. It is sometimes difficult to find a parking spot; personally I think it just depends on the time of day.

Honestly, I'm unhappy here, but I am looking to transfer because I think the size is not good for me. Being on North Campus is a pain because a long commute wastes a lot of time. It is nice to have a group of people that you are familiar with, but then you find yourself alone in the Central Campus dining halls sometimes. Maybe that's just me! But there is a really prestigious education here and opportunities to get involved with professional clubs as well as things that seem fun. There is a lack of personal attention because of the size and people are really arrogant about going to a school that they somehow compare to Harvard. But some would say the lack of personal attention is a part of growing up. There is also a huge presence of Greek life, which is loud and bothersome if you don't want to be involved. If you do, you're in luck though! Michigan may be for you, but there it definitely takes a certain personality.

If diversity is something you care about, Michigan would be a great place for you. There are people from every race religion and country.

There is always a ton to offer here, but it really takes effort to get into something as well as consistency, because the campus is so enormous and it's easy to be too lazy to go to a meeting or just get lost in the shuffle of things. The gym is old but does the job, libraries are nice and there are a lot of them (with a not so short walk or bus ride) and there is a lot of eco-craze going on as well.

You get a lot of amazing professors who are really passionate about what they teach and know a lot. My main problem with the academics is with some of the GSIs.

There's kind of a lack of North Campus dining halls; Central Campus locations are satisfactory though. Food is usually satisfactory (though I'm sure no one would mind some changes here or there on the menus). They're pretty sanitary. Service is rahter stellar. Seating's not much of a problem, depending on place and time.
Meal plans force people to eat there too much and do quickly grow tired of dining halls though.

I know people do use drugs, but it's never forced on you. Most people respect your decision to not do drugs.

This grade is somewhere in the middle because your experience really depends on which dorm you live in. Most of the dorms have good and bad aspects. New dorms like Alice Lloyd and Couzens are ridiculously nice, but a little bit of a farther walk from central campus, and they have to share a dining hall with MoJo. North campus dorms are quiet and okay to live in, but very isolated and not as social. Markley is not nice and new, but is probably the most social dorm on campus. Northwood apartments are probably the worst option for students, as they are isolated on north and lack a hall community.

South University and State Street are both home to many different restaurants of all different types of food and prices. There are chains and fast food restaurants and also nicer, more expensive restaurants. Most of these are very close to dorms, apartments, and houses, depending on where you live, and if you're willing to travel a little, Main Street has many options for finer dining.

I personally like the farmer's market in Kerrytown a lot, but if you have a car here there is lots to do. Also sports are amazing here and makes it a true college experience.
College Junior 2012-11-26T18:40:27Z
Very difficult to find a spot on the streets and it makes bringing a car a hassle.

They are very picky with whom they will award scholarships to.

Great college town with lots to do on and off campus. Campus is nicely integrated into town

It is entirely possible to live on campus without a car, even living on north campus. The busses run until 3am most nights. If the busses have stopped running there are "safe ride" options where a taxi will take you for free from any library to your destination free of charge as long as you show your active Mcard. The city-wide busses are free also with an active Mcard. If you stay over summer term though, north campus transportation is difficult as the Bursley/Baits route stops over spring/summer.

There are plenty of computer locations across campus. Each academic building normally has a few computers for students to use, whether on north, central, or south campus. Even the dorms have available computers. You just need an active uniqname and password. They also have a mix of PC and Mac computers normally. There are printers at most locations, and you can even print wirelessly! I feel students do not get enough printing pages provided to them free of charge. I normally go over, but it is still cheaper to pay for printing through the university than to buy your own printer and ink.

The food quality and variety is good but not every dorm has a dining hall. If you live on central campus there are plenty of dining halls near, but there is only one dining hall for all of north campus. Many people cannot use up their meal plans by the end of the academic year, so I recommend choosing the option with more blue bucks+dining dollars than actual meals. The blue bucks and dining dollars are great to use at university unions for to-go options.

Mostly need-based. The only merit-based one I have heard people getting was one for Valedictorians or Salutatorians.

Between the UM bus system and the Ann Arbor bus system, there are many routes and many different areas you can go through public transportation. Taxis are also available.

Amazing college town. So diverse and so many things to do. You can make what you want out of it.
College Senior 2012-11-21T18:55:51Z
The bus system is really well run. There is an app for your phone about when the buses will arrive.

I enjoy the Fall where leaves turn different colors. I also love the cold weather during the winter and I look forward to the snow! The weather so far has been warm, not like the typical winters.

There are tons of computers everywhere and I have never had a problem.

Health & Safety:
From everything I have seen, the health system here is top notch.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
