People always talk about Michigan weather. I'm from Michigan so I have no problems really, but when it gets cold it gets too cold and when it's hot it's too hot.

What's That Smell? Every other day or so when I come back to my dorm the entire hall smells pretty weird. I'm not familiar with the smell myself, but based on the comments of others it seems like there might be some drug usage going on. Also, I've seen cops nailing people for drinking twice in my hall.

Buildings are kinda old, but there are many options. The new ones are expensive.

I Got Unlucky – I got the worst housing on campus but feel that the overall environment here is good.
College Junior 2011-11-29T08:01:45Z
Go Team! Sports here at Michigan are huge and there is lots of spirit, fan support as well as student involvement.
College Junior 2011-11-29T08:00:42Z
Plenty of computers available all around campus, all in very good condition.
College Junior 2011-11-17T03:25:20Z
Very Good – The people here are very welcoming and more often than not very polite.

Guys & Girls:
Alot of Umich school pride, therefore you will often see yellow and/or blue shirts, caps, pants, sweaters, etc.

South Quad Dining Hall – Not the best food. Becomes dull after a couple of weeks, but it's manageable and convenient.

No Major – I have not yet declared a specific major or minor. I went in thinking about Biomedical Engineering however it is much too hard to attain right now. I'm taking other classes to see what I might be interested in going into.

Public Ivy – This is a state school, where I pay in state tuition, and it competes with the best schools in the world. A fantastic institution.

U of M – This is Michigan for God sakes. Get to a hockey game - this is one of the great college athletic departments. It's not just a football school.

Health & Safety:
Very Safe – Aside from some petty crime, maybe the occasional b & e, I feel very safe walking around Ann Arbor. As a town, its pretty harmless.

Who Doesn't Know About Sports Here! It's the University of Michigan: football, basketball, hockey, crew, tennis, gymnastics, even quidditch. We have it all. Our training facilities are top-notch and easy to access.

I am majoring in neuroscience, but since I am only a freshman I haven'e really gotten into my core classes yet. Too soon to tell.

Dorm Living – My dormatory is on North Campus, so it is a bike ride or a bus ride to get to most of my classes (about 2 miles). It actually is OK. I like getting away from the hustle and bustle after classes. The dorm has alot going on has really good food. Many freshman get placed on North Campus (not by choice), and are upset about it. But like I said - I like it.

Housing Is Convenient – I'm living in the dorm and it is great to have all the utilities taken care of...some of my friends have high electric bills.
College Senior 2011-11-01T01:20:34Z
very hard to find a place to park; average cost $120 a month.
College Senior 2011-11-01T01:18:18Z
Nice but Expensive Food Downtown; Off-Campus Either Over-Priced or Old – Nice but expensive food downtown; off-campus either over-priced or old; if you want to find an apartment near campus, it's either very expensive or old and crappy.
College Senior 2011-11-01T01:11:21Z
Health & Safety:
Safety Medium to Weak, Health Care Very Inconvenient – usually takes about 1-2 hours to see a doctor at UHS; the quality was acceptable though
lots of campus alerts, even room invasion happens;but if you call DPS, they arrive in 5-10 minutes.

Great Bus System – The bus routes are good, and there's a lot of buses that keep going until the late hours. They've also made good apps for bus mapping on your phone.

The facilities are great, but they tend to get super crowded and loud during exam weeks. They also seem to be a bit socially segregated, especially with greek life. Engineers in the basement, various on the first floor, greek on the second, etc.

Highly Qualified Professors – The professors had earned their degrees from very prestigious schools. Apparently though that means sometimes awkward nerds. They're smart as hell and teach very well but when you speak with them outside of class they seem to lack some social skills. At least this goes for the engineering professors...

While the University of Michigan has many different people of different ethnic backgrounds, there are really only two races that are prominently represented in the student body. A majority would be Caucasian, with a very close second going to the Asian population. It's a bit of a campus joke that there are more Asians here than Asia. U of M students for the most part tolerant and accepting of all diversity, which is always nice.

Michigan's World Foods – The University of Michigan has more restaurants than anyone could possibly want to count, most of which are in the heart of Ann Arbor, a mere minutes walk from Central Campus. The massive variety allows you to pick from virtually any area of the world in any give price range. A $6 Chinese meal From Lucky Kitchen is really hard to beat.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
