University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

4.4
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.

  • It’s top five school. Campus is throughout the city. The Big House is Great. The diag is great to walk through. Dorm rooms are undergoing renovations.  more »
  • Took my HS son after almost 30 years. Amazed how many places are still kicking around and how many new (and interesting) architectural gems have been added to central Campus. For my money this is one ...  more »
  • Fall is the best time to visit the University of Michigan campus. The quad is surrounded by huge trees with leaves turning and surrounded by architectural delights. Great atmosphere for a top institut...  more »

  • It's a great school, but they do screw over their staff. The pay for researchers are insultingly low, and the raises are even more insultingly low. Employees that are let go due to cutbacks when try to get another job here, they make sure they're not paid even a dime more, even though by now they're more experienced. So if you're stuck at this place due to some personal and life issues, rest assured, you will be living below poverty line, even with an advanced degree and significant experience. HR is no help, and the big guy always wins. But they really need to treat their employees better, they are doing amazing work and contributing to society and you treat them as they'd be better off working as day laborers.
  • Hi everyone although I have never personally been here I have heard that this school has a large medical program where everyone can excel. I think I will recommend this school to anyone who wants to go to medical school or study nursing.
  • This place can be great or terrible. A lot of it depends on luck. And a lot of it is on the university for not being as competent as they claim they are. I don't personally feel that the faculty is treated well. And I think a lot of unnecessary stress is put on students. Of course some amount of stress is normal when at university but U of M takes it to another level. The financial aide program is a joke. Each person you talk to there will tell you different information from the last time you spoke with someone at the office, leaving you very confused. Advisors are over worked and not properly trained for the job. I'm not really sure who is the ultimate cause of the trouble many people face at U of M but I hope someone can figure it out so then everyone who works there or attends the school can have a good experience. The education over all is good. Wich of course is one of the top priorities. However with the way things are at the school now I don't know that the education is worth the money. The amount of stress and lack of help or accurate information is most definitely not worth the money. I would like to see U of M take people's complaints or issues with them seriously. Maybe someday the school will be more organized and everyone who is involved with it can have a great experience and gain the knowledge they need to succeed.
  • Nothing but an overpriced emotional coddling center. Professors are so Liberal-biased that one can be ostracized and chastised if they do not conform to the victim status/bash whitey attitude. The University proved just how non-inclusive they are during the last election. Even the president ostracized a portion of the school population. It's a shame that these once respectable institutions of higher learning are slowly becoming cesspools of whining babies who leave, totally unprepared for the real, unforgiving, hostile world. Believe me, hate lives here.....every day. It's disguised though as intolerance of others' views.
  • My 16 year old niece is considering attending the University. We took a campus orientation seminar and then roamed all 3 parts of campus. Lots to see and do. Museums, bars, restaurants, music venues, sports complexes, plus. Very impressive
