Diverse, but Segregated by Concentrations – The students of UMich are extremely diverse, and it's not uncommon to see interracial couples, or friend groups. The one common denominator between all the students? Everyone is fairly intelligent. Despite this, most students tend to hang out with other people from their respective racial/socioeconomic cliques.

Best Town to Spend Your College Years – Ann Arbor...Where do I begin? There's always something to do every second of the day/night. If you like culture, we have a myriad of museums (most are free). If you like to party, we have countless bars and clubs. If you just want to study, our libraries open at seven in the morning, and close at five in the morning; but they're open all hours during finals and midterms. Do you like nature? There's the arboretum, also known as Nichol's Arboretum, a humungous chunk of fertile land and humbling forest-- complete with trails, and a majestic prairie. But, honestly, the best thing about Ann Arbor? The people are incredibly relaxed, friendly, intelligent, and kind.

The University of Michigan is fantastic academically. We have the greatest professors who know all about what they're teaching. With each class you will usually have a separate discussion with a graduate instructor to further your understanding of the material. And if it's needed, there are always workshops and special help that can be sought out.

Typical College Campus – Alcohol is present at almost every party, however signs are put up to discourage underage drinking. Marijuana is quite popular but none of them affect those who choose not to partake in the usage of these drugs.

The University of Michigan is known for it's immense diversity and I love it. There are so many different cultures to be surrounded with and get to know. It really is quite an eye-opening experience.

Very health conscious, pretty affordable, and some really good Indian cuisine.

Guys & Girls:
Not Bad but Could Be Better – It's a huge school I don't think many people have a hard time fitting in with a group they like. However, it's definitely not as fashionable as more metropolitan cities and being a big sports school you definitely see a lot of fraternity/sorority types.

Academics are ridiculously hard. There is no such thing as a "joke" class. You have to work at every class to get a good grade. However, people are awesome and campus life is great.

Campus Life – It's not a huge city or anything so there aren't too many options or a lot of diversity but you're with your peers and everybody is very open so it's great! Nightlife/classes/dorms/housing are all near each other so it's not a hassle to go out either

Learning Experience – Amazing time. Most fun I've ever had but also the hardest time I've ever had. Made amazing friends and met so many different people

Red cups can be seen often in front of yards but we have to keep in my mind, most of those who take part in drinking are 21. Drugs aren't really seen and it just depends on who you hang out with but drugs are not visible and popular on campus.

Psychology is very intriguing to me so I really like it. I enjoy taking the courses needed. One thing I would say is that it is a little difficult for me to declare my major as psychology because I need to take per-requisites before I can declare my major. There are a couple of courses that need to be taken but because I want to go to dental school, I also have to take per-requisites for dental that it may take some time but majoring in psychology is something that is intriguing to me and that I enjoy. As of right now I do not have any concerns with finding a job, I am more focused on getting into dental school. However, instead of majoring in biology, I think majoring in something other than a major that will fulfill requisites for dental school helps me enjoy my college education more.

Tons of Great Places to Go Out – The food is top-notch and there is a ton of variety!
College Senior 2012-07-20T18:26:01Z
I would recommend going car-less and using the excellent bus system

Easy Process, but Little Aid Available – I found the process of applying for scholarships to be extremely easy, as my application to the program served as my scholarship application as well. However, I was disappointed to learn that there are not many scholarships to go around. I've had to do a lot of searching outside of the University to find scholarships.

Very Easy – For my degree, I just had to enroll in some pre-req classes and send a quick email to declare.

Health & Safety:
Watch Your Stuff – It seems I get at least three emails a month about something being stolen on campus. Aside from that danger, there are things in place to add security at night, tons of free transportation and security is highly visible.

A Lot Going on – There's always something to do, a lot of greek life and bars/clubs open to most students. During football season, there is no shortage for entertainment.
College Junior 2012-07-18T00:20:23Z
You Can Find It All – Just about any religion, ethnicity, economic background, race, etc. can be found and the University of Michigan, and not just one, plenty of them. It is possible for everyone to find a group that they are familiar and comfortable around. The only downfall is that the groups do not always mingle into groups of all different backgrounds, but stick to people who are similar to themselves.

Positives and Negatives – Greek life does provide some good aspects to our campus, for example, some sororities and fraternities volunteer their time and raise money for good causes. It also can be a family away from home to those who need it. Sometimes Greek life is too large and UM though and those not in it are looked down on by those in them and are not allowed into their social events. There is definitely angst between those in them and those not in them.

Satisfied but It's a Struggle! I am happy with my major choice because it is what I wanted to do.I am very confident that I will find a job because of my intern experience. However, all engineering programs are extremely difficult and take a huge amount of effort. The reason I gave a B- is because often times, classes are made that much more difficult by a professor who doesn't speak english. This only hurts the students!

Lots of Precipitation – Feels like it's always some kind of precipitation going on, whether it be snow, rain, hail, etc. Also always a little warmer/colder (depending on season) than other places in MI. But Ann Arbor is very scenic and pretty, so even when there's a huge storm, still manages to look nice!

Almost an a+ – The only reason I didn't give my experience an A+ is because I am in an extremely hard program that is also extremely successful which takes away from my overall enjoyment of school. If I was in an easier program, there is no doubt this would be an A+! Some of my favorite moments have definitely happened at football games!

Guys & Girls:
Not Much Variety – There are alot of decent looking people at Umich, but it's pretty easy to get some guy/girl groups confused because of lack of variety. There a ton of fratty/sorority, Northface, Ugg boot wearing girls/guys that all just become a blur. If these people are your type, then you're in luck! If you're like me and this type does absolutely nothing for you, it might be a little more difficult to find someone you like. There's also some hipsters, and some not as attractive people. But there are a few sexys running around!

Mostly Drinking – Personally, I don't know too many people who do drugs besides smoking weed or Adderall. Most students drink on campus, and for the most part do it in a way where it doesn't negatively affect others around. This is why I gave it a B.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
