Sometimes called the Ivy League of the Midwest, University of Michigan features a campus atmosphere with architecturally designed buildings and the Big House, the university's stadium. The law library is an imposing, Gothic-style building with tall, high-set windows and dangling lights. At the museum of natural history, you can learn about evolution, wildlife, anthropology, and geology, as well as see the planetarium. Next, visit the art museum and its  collections from a broad range of histories and cultures. If you take a tour of the Big House, you'll get to see the stadium field, game-day locker rooms, the press box, and the club and suite levels.

  • Go Blue baby! If you're visiting Ann Arbor, certainly check out Michigan as it's the biggest staple of Ann Arbor 
  • The University of Michigan is the best college ever! Located in the exciting and well educated town of Ann Arbor, there is always something stimulating happening! 
  • The University of Michigan will not disappoint....anyone! It has something for everyone from art museums, restaurants to great sporting events! 
  • U of M is right in the middle of downtown Ann Arbor and so it is extremely pleasant to walk around on campus. The academic buildings are extremely nice as well, inside and out. It is a very large school so the student generally remains fairly anonymous (but if they make an effort, they can stand out) so they remain distant from the professors. The University also has tons of extracurricular activities of all kinds -- which is awesome, but does make it difficult to find time to study. Overall, it's a great place to be and offers so many opportunities, it can be an amazing incubator for professional success.
  • I visited their campus for a day last September during the the weekend of the BYU football game and man this place was buzzing, I watched their baseball tryouts, saw some guy murder the ball, watched some of the track athletes do some hurdles too. Later I was told to just cruuuuuise down State Street I believe (may have been main) and I hit up the UM store, got myself a shirt, a hat and met my idol Derek Jeter. Yep. Made that trip truly one of the most memorable. Even as a huge MSU fan I would definitely go to UM to play ball or for education.
  • My daughter went there, and "yes" they are very liberal in some ways, but they are not Mizzou thank God - for example they had a great graduation segment for the ROTC students - they were treated with great respect. Students here have the best academic and emotional support system of any Michigan public school, bar none. Some students who had to settle for MSU will be envious haters, but hey - that's life.
  • Very disappointed in this school. They had a booth during a college fair. The rep that stood behind their table continued to direct my son to the black schools, and continued with the same negative comments directed to my son. Not knowing my son is a straight A high honor student, who is also Captain of the Varsity football team at his school, and he was only a sophomore at the time. You should never judge a book by its cover. I am so disappointed in this school, and we moved here from Connecticut for our childrens education and for the great college opportunities out here...
  • nice school to be in michigan thank you so much Ann Arbor for be the best school ever sue curtis!
