    University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

    ANN ARBOR, MI,

    4506 Niche users give it an average review of 3.9 stars.

    Featured Review: Sophomore says Michigan is truly the best of all worlds! World class academics? Check! Top tier athletics? Check! Great party scene? Check!It is so easy to get involved with a wide variety of interests. There's more clubs than I can name here.Opportunities are plentiful, especially involving research. STEM majors especially can easily get involved with the hospital and research facilities nearby.Complaints: diversity should be better, and some of the first-year facilities are average. That being said, this feels like a very accepting school compared to the surrounding areas, and most people...Otherwise, Ann Arbor is a great town. Campus feels safe to walk around, even at night, and the directly surrounding areas generally don't have issues.Honestly, I can't speak highly enough about how great this school is. I can't imagine going anywhere else. Go Blue!.
