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.
I was at U of M for a GIDAS MirCore WISE summer camp in computational biology. In my time, I got to meet professors, faculty, and currently students studying that field. I participated in group discussions in various parts of the campus, including the Ross school of Business and Undergraduate Science Building. The campus was amazing! It had an amazing, liberal, inviting feel to it with a lot to do- even if you don't have money! I was also very impressed with the faculty there. It was very evident that every student and staff member was passionate about their academic mission and loved their experience at U of M.
