University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Reviews
I've had the best college experience here at the University of Michigan. The people, the attractions, the study spots, the food, just everything makes it feel like you're home. It's a very diverse campus with so many friendly faces and there is always something to do. And I think the fact that I am enrolled in the number one dental school in the nation makes it much more motivating for me. The instructors will do whatever they can to help students succeed and if you put your mind to it, you will succeed. There's never a bad place to study and that's the other advantage of going to Umich. The only downside is housing can be difficult to find but that's because everybody wants to be a part of the Michigan difference!
I absolutely love the University of Michigan. Everyone is so friendly and they want you to engage more on campus. The dorms are better than most other colleges I've heard of and the dining is amazing. There's a student organization for everyone, no matter what you enjoy doing in your free time. Michigan can connect you to companies all over the world and has numerous study abroad opportunities. The teachers care about how their students are doing in class and are passionate about what they teach. I will be attending my first football game in the Big House this Fall semester and I can't wait to cheer on the Wolverines! I recommend Michigan to anyone and everyone!
University of Michigan is the best school in the world. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but it all pays off. The only thing that I would change is the weather. In the winter, when its less than ten degrees and I have to walk twenty minutes to get to class at 9am I wish I went to a different school. However, the feeling is fleeting because I truly couldn't picture myself anywhere else. One thing about Michigan that makes it such a great environment is how much everyone who goes there loves their school. There is a passion like none other in every classroom, hallway, and street of downtown Ann Arbor. Also, the opportunities that Michigan offers seem to be never ending. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the choices I have because I want to get involved in all of them! Michigan has taught me how to work hard, dedicate myself, and have a great time all at the same time. Forever go blue.
