My first visit to the University of Michigan - Dearborn was during my AVID field trip in the 8th grade. When we first arrived, we were introduced to a friendly and outgoing student tour guide. She made us feel welcome and was open to answering most of our general questions. The students that attend the university are a well diverse group with positive commentaries about their university. My earliest visit was a couple of weeks ago when I went there for a campus tour. Similar to last time, my advisor was kind and patient. He helped me with my inquiries, and I felt at ease. The students were very kindhearted when they helped me with directions to a building in the institute. Some even went above and beyond and left their belongings to point me the way. Overall, I am confident to say that the University of Michigan - Dearborn values integrity, courtesy, and diligence. I desire all who visit the place to have an enjoyable and informative experience.

One of the best colleges in Michigan! I am a freshmen that currently attends university of Michigan dearborn, and I am already on my way with my pre med track with excellent advising, and a very supportive community.
This place is great! At first, I was worried about going here instead of Ann Arbor when I was accepted to both campuses, but after a year, I can say that the University of Michigan - Dearborn has exceeded my expectations by far. The best things about the college are the professors and the social atmosphere, which is surprisingly good for a commuter school.
