Although many students gripe about the weather, the cost of living, and the calculus GSIs with incoherent accents, one thing holds true: the Michigan experience is one to be envied by all. Students here love their school, and they're not ashamed to say so. Few schools have a greater academic reputation, better sports, and more opportunities for extracurricular involvement There are 900 student organizations from which to choose.
Picking a school is a tough decision, and no one expects you to know exactly what you want to do with your life before you've even graduated high school. Fortunately, a school like Michigan can help you find yourself by giving you the chance to try everything under the sun. Nearly every academic area is in the top 10, the sports teams warrant immediate respect, the social life is right with the times, and there are so many ways in which to become involved (it's almost impossible to become a couch potato here). As a Michigan graduate, your degree will be one of the most highly respected in the nation. Graduate schools respect the Michigan name, and undergraduate placement into top schools speaks directly to that fact. And by joining the ranks of the largest alumni population in the world (over 450,000), you'll be a member of a proud family for life. If you choose Michigan, you'll have to try awfully hard to dislike the place after four wonderful years. Join the thousands of maize and blue faithful, and Go Blue!
