With being downtown you get to be able to view the city like no other person has the ability to do so. In between classes you have the opportunity to explore downtown Detroit. You can go to campus Martius, or you can go to the public library or the DIA. The school itself is like it's own little city there is everything there that you could possibly need. Cafes, Diners, bookshops, a pharmacy, and even a beauty shop! Everyone on campus is very nice, and you are guaranteed to make friends! There is some downfalls to the university. Parking is not free anywhere, you have to pay for parking and it is not cheap. My advice is either get a parking pass or make sure there is money on your one card so that way it is cheaper than using your debit card. Also at night sometimes if you wander off too far it can be dangerous but you can always get a security guard to walk you to your car if you do not feel safe.
