The University of Michigan's motto is "Leaders and Best" and that's exactly what this school provides and produces. It provides the best professors, courses and college experiences and produces innovative leaders. My experience at this institution allowed for academic and personal growth, which has embedded quite a zealous spirit within me, especially in regard to the achievement of my future aspirations. I can't thank this school enough. To conclude, I recommend the University of Michigan to anyone willing to work hard, expand their mind and anyone who wishes to fulfil their dreams!
Review University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
My experience at Michigan was outstanding. The campus is beautiful and surrounded by the City of Ann Arbor which has so much to offer. The academic experience is second to none and my professors were engaging and dynamic. The level of arts, culture, food, diversity, sports, etc. is truly amazing considering the size of Ann Arbor. The alumni network is huge and offers great support and benefits long after you leave the Diag. Michigan is truly a family, Go Blue!
Michigan is a great school overall. Post graduation, the school name carries a lot of weight when it comes to finding a job. Make sure you get a plethora of experiences-study abroad, school sponsored internships, take courses outside of your major, etcetera. If there's any idea for a student org or business or start up you have- use those resources! They are there. There's so much you get that's paid for in your tuition. Take advantage of it.
