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!
