U of M Ann Arbor demands academic rigor and, yet, having a compassionate academic advisor takes the challenge to a higher level that makes the pursuit of academic goals fun! At the graduate level, there is a sense of fulfillment in reaching these goals that is impossible to reduce to a survey opinion but, as cliche as it may sound, the breakthroughs make the struggles in life worthwhile!

University of Michigan’s School of Public Health is fine. It’s going through some growing pains as the credentialing gets updated and it’s noticeable, but still a good school. The general public health classes you take are not great, but your department specific ones are amazing!
I am a graduate student at the School of Information (UMSI). The academic faculty are knowledgeable and engaging, and the program curriculum for my degree is focused and intentional, but at the same time flexible. This semester has been particularly challenging, since our courses were entirely remote. However, most professors made additional accommodations and/or arrangements to maintain student engagement and learning in the virtual environment.
