Love the atmosphere. It is like living in a city, with a small town flare

Amazing amounts of resources, computer labs, printing etc.

My friends and I do not use drugs. Some students may do but it is OK.

Cold and heavy snow in winter. Very hot in summer.....The winter is really long. Do not come to the UM if you hate cold or snow.

Central campus apartments or houses are more expensive than north but more convenient. If you wanna live off-campus, you should look for it at least 4 months earlier and you can definitely get one you like.

On-street parking is reasonable but scarce. There are a few parking structures that usually have available spots, but they are scattered around town and cost more.

Decent off-campus housing is scarce. You have to arrange for off-campus housing many months (or even a year) in advance. Many of the rental houses and apartments are run down and still pricey.

Many available at all libraries. However, most students have there own laptop.

I had a difficult time getting financial aid from UM. They stress diversity a lot and getting aid is very competitive, especially for out-of-staters. I suggest starting very early with scholarships and the finaid process.

Everything in the town caters to college students. The football scene really sets U of M apart from the others. There is such a sense of pride among the students and the local residents. Greek life is big, but not a necessity. There's plenty to do and tons of people who aren't involved and still have a great time. Frats hold most parties to underclassmen, but there are bars and house parties, as well.

There is always something to do in Ann Arbor! And the spirit of the town is unbelievable! You can't go out without seeing someone wearing U of M paraphernalia. It is so nice to see people of all ages supporting the University!

University of Michigan has facilities for all aspects of student life. Multiple libraries, various sports facilities, and general hangouts dedicated to student happiness and life. There is an endless offering of student organizations to join and if those don't suit you, you can always create your own!

Health & Safety:
Pretty Safe – The campus is pretty safe, but the main campus is heavily integrated into Ann Arbor, so there are a lot of non-students on campus. Theft of unattended computers and valuables in the main student libraries is not uncommon, and young women on the streets late at night (2am on) should be careful.

It's pretty avergae. For drinking, you get an MIP, if underage. If of age, you can drink alone in your dorm room. For cheating, you can be expelled :-(

Psych and Soc! Soc and Psych were amazing programs, with a lot of resources and access to teachers and GSIs.

Leaders and Best – Michigan is all around amazing. The work load is heavy but you leave prepared for anything you face in the world. The professors are always available and willing to help and there are endless resources on campus to fulfill your needs.
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-10T17:07:42Z
Greeklife Isn't Priority – A lot of MICHIGAN students are greek but academics always come first. For the NPHC, it's more about the programs that are put on instead of the parties taht are thrown. For PHC, it's more of a social thing. It can hurt your grades too if you don't have good time management skills.

Parking is terrible here! Always packed lots, and the lots available to graduate students (and undergrads) are not that conveniently located. Granted, there are many public transportation options from many lots, but the lots themselves are not great. It is faster for me to walk to school than to drive to a parking lot and walk/bus from there. Not helpful! Parking also gets expensive. The passes are pricey, ticketing is strict, and to park without a pass is also expensive.

Off Campus Can Get Expensive Fast – For someone who does not wish to have a roommate, off-campus (and on-campus) housing can get expensive quickly. The choices are somewhat limited, but most are safe. A variety of location choices are available, but none are particularly great.

Labs Often Crowded, but Good Quality – Labs are frequently crowded, but the computers are usually functioning properly, internet is usually working at sufficient speeds, and the programs I need are loaded on the computers.

I Have Never Lived on Campus – Never lived on campus, so I don't have a review of campus housing.

Wide Range of People – UofM has a pretty wide range of religious beliefs, countries of origin, and political beliefs. As a whole, people seem to be very accepting of others though. There are also quite a few ethnic restaurants.

The Police Force Is as It Should Be. The police enforce laws that keep students safe, but also seem to realize that students do like to let loose! There is a good balance here. Professors are strict about academics and a lot of studying is to be expected. However, this is a positive thing in my eyes.

Be Prepared for the Heat – Most dorms do not have air conditioning. Bring fans
Recent Alumnus 2012-09-05T19:57:44Z
I was apart of greek life and it was great. I met great people and there was always something socially going on. Living in a sorority was great because if you wanted to stay in or go out there was always someone there doing the same.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
