It'd say there are a lot of greek life around here. Just walking down to the big house is crazy. You'll see ALL sorts of frats and sororities, and there are way more to go around. It definitely dominates here and some say it's great. I do hear some crazy stories about greek life though and they can be a bit scary. Be careful, but if you're into partying all the time, greek life at umich is for you.

Guys & Girls:
There are lots of guys to chose from, don't get me wrong. But boys here aren't fantastic. Although some are pretty good looking. Depends.

Computer labs are very plentiful. Sometimes they're busy, depending on what time you go at. But in almost every building there's at least one. For some of the more common buildings, like Burlsey, the freshman dorm, there are 2. It's strongly recommended you do bring your own.

Ann Arbor is awesome. There are a lot of great places to eat, and multiple streets with cute shops and restaurants. There is pretty much everything a college kid would ever need, and if the area around campus doesn't have it, it is definitely in driving distance and on the Ann Arbor bus route.

Alcohol is huge at U of M. The greek scene is also huge, which definitely contributes to the prevalence of alcohol. Pot is also pretty accessible, although as a girl I don't see it as much. Football season inspires many to drink, and Welcome Week is infamous for the crazy drinking. It's a lot of fun if you manage it correctly. There are definitely some people who don't drink, but I don't know too many.

A lot of people think U-M is a football school where academics come second. This is not the case. The kids go just as hard at the football pre games as they do in the library on Sunday and during the week. My classes are really challenging- lots of reading and independent work ethic involved. Nonetheless, the teachers are engaging and really know what they are talking about.

The Wolverines are amazing!! The fans are insane, especially at football games. School spirit is huge. It is very excited. We have decent to good teams, and there is usually always something going on. Besides the big varsity teams, there are other ways to play on sports team like inter mural. The athletic facilities are great.

You declare a major simply by applying for it. The only exception is getting into the Ross Business School. They have different criteria for majors. For the LS&A you can pretty much make up any major you want and you academic adviser will help you make it legit.

U of M has both Blue Buses and The Ride. Blue Buses are U of M's free buses that travel around campus and to North Campus. Anywhere else you need to get can be accessed by The Ride which is Ann Arbor's public bus system, and it is free for U of M students with a valid MCard (Umich ID).
College Junior 2012-11-06T20:13:04Z
Busses will take you anywhere you want to go. There are U of M busses that go ALL over campus, and then city busses that take students for free anywhere around Ann Arbor. It is expensive to bring cars here, but they REALLY aren't needed.

The psychology program at Umich is top-ranked in the country, and it shows. There are tons of choices of classes, and I've never taken a psych class that I don't like.
College Junior 2012-11-06T19:55:43Z
I am a psych major, and I could just declare. You just needed to get C's or higher in stats, intro psych, and two intro psych subject classes, like social psych or developmental psych.

Greek life is a great way to make friends and make a large campus feel smaller. Not everybody is involved but those who are love it. You do not have to be a part of greek life to have fun and girls can get into most parties whether they are greek or not. Guys have a more difficult time getting into fraternities if they are not in that fraternity.

Athletics are huge. Football saturdays are amazing and people call Saturday morning the best night of the week. Everybody has so much school spirit. Hockey and basketball also have fun atmospheres. Most Michigan sports teams are pretty good.

If you're on central campus everything is pretty close to each other. Even if you're on north campus there's a bus that goes back and forth. It's convenient and even the city buses are free for students.

The dining halls are okay but nothing extraordinary. At rush hours sometimes they run out of food but it's quickly restocked.

I had a great experience with the Sociology Department and LS&A overall. The academic advisors are helpful, the professors were good and available if you needed them. The workload can become heavy, but the curriculum is interesting. Although I had an LS&A degree, I got an entry level job as a business analyst - and had the job offer before graduation. Take advantage of the career center.

Ann Arbor is a great campus. It is primarily a college town, but has great music/events, awesome restaurants, and fun bars. Of course the city revolves around football in the fall, and you can't beat tailgating around campus and the stadium.

Michigan is certainly not as much of a party or drug-using school as others, although if you are looking for it, you can find it. The people you associate with will be the largest driving force in your drug exposure.
Recent Alumnus 2012-10-23T01:51:24Z
Many different options and majors. U of M may not be known as the best for every major out there, but I bet the major or class exists if you try to find it.

The drug scene at the University of Michigan definitely exists. But it's not a huge part of campus life. I'd say most students aren't into drugs, but it depends what crowd you hang with. We do have the reputation for pot smoking also. Drinking is a big deal though, like any other college campus. I wouldn't say drinking is any worse here than any other school
Recent Alumnus 2012-10-23T01:46:21Z
Lots of options, many dining halls around campus that you can go to.

Ann Arbor is generally cloudy, drizzly, and cold in the winter. We do get some big snow storms from time to time. But it's Michigan, so the weather can change on a dime. The fall and spring in Ann Arbor are truly amazing!

Nursing at U of M is challenging. It requires a lot of focus, and management of classes, exams, papers and clinical work. The instructors are mostly pretty good and very knowledgeable about their particular area of study. I felt challenged at the University of Michigan, and definitely had to work hard to maintain a 3.8 GPA. Definitely worth it though. You have a great nursing school, and a huge teaching/research hospital just around the corner for your clinicals

lots of good sports teams, plus tons and tons of school spirit. can't beat the wolverine pride in aa
Sorry, there are no reviews.
