Out of all of the universities I applied to, I'm really glad I picked this one. The diversity of students is by far my favorite about this school. Each semester I met students from Brazil, Germany, China, ect.The class sizes are around 30 students, but that's the max.The professors are great and know the subjects they teach very well.Since the university is so diverse, it lets you grow and understand how well the professors and students collaborate together to make sure the material being taught is understood by all 30 students.Because of my time here, I have also received an internship opportunity at only my 3rd semester! That's huge! Because at other universities, it's harder to find a job due to the larger amount of students. Since the University is top 10 universities of Michigan, there acceptance rate is around 56-58%, so still over half but only by a little. I think that's why so many students are able to land internship opportunities.
Review University of Michigan - Dearborn
UM-Dearborn's most valuable quality is the close-knit atmosphere that it creates. Since it's a small university, making friends and gaining connections is fairly easy. However, the small school vibe comes with a price.
I, personally, didn't enjoy the lack of livelihood on campus each day. Some people may enjoy the quietness, but most of the time, it's just plain boring. The University Center is the only building that attracts a crowd, and that's only because it houses the only place on campus to eat: a mediocre Picasso Cafe.
My classroom experience wasn't necessarily negative, although it was consistent with other aspects of the school. Classes were boring. The truth is, enthusiastic and engaging professors are rare at UM-Dearborn.
Finally, to end with a positive note, the resources on campus are easily accessible. Resources like the Math Learning Center, the Writing Center, and plentiful computer labs throughout campus are helpful in aiding students reach their goals.
University of Michigan-Dearborn is "above-average" in my opinion. Of course, it's not as challenging as the UM-Ann Arbor campus, (which may be a plus for some students, and a negative for others).

Overall, the instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. The students are nice, but it seems harder to make friends that you spend time with outside of class at UM-Deadborn. However, UM-D does offer a lot of student involvement opportunities, which I highly recommend if you want to add to your overall "college experience".

The campus is well-maintained and extremely safe. Parking isn't too much of a hassle, especially compared to parking at other nearby colleges/universities.

Overall, I believe that University of Michigan-Dearborn is a decent school, and I recommend it to anyone who wishes to further their education and reach their educational goals!
