  • 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 am not a student there but being right next door it's a place I love you visit. The campus is beautiful and a great atmosphere to be in. It's definitely a nice place to go to just walk around and explore if you haven't.
  • Everything you could want in a University
  • 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.
  • University of Michigan is a great prestigious school. It challenges all of the students. Despite the strong academics, the school LACKS cleanliness. There are several incidents of roaches in college dormitories, and the school has failed to take action. For a school to have so much money, you would think they could hire someone to get rid of the HUGE, TERRIFYING ROACHES. I do not pay thousands of dollars to live with roaches.
