    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!.

    Featured Review: Freshman says My experience at Calvin as an international student has been good so far.The classes have been a bit difficult for me, I studied all day, and there was always too much homework; If you are a person who likes to enjoy your free time, get ready! You will not sleep!I love the campus because it is surrounded by nature and has a native garden! So it's a good place if you don't like the city's noise.It has been difficult for me to enter the community because practically everyone is white.Regarding the food, it's just disgusting, no taste, no salt, raw at times..
