University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (53)
I was very pleased with my education at the University of Michigan. The psychology department at U of M includes some of the top names in the field creating opportunities to network and participate in high powered labs. There are a vast variety of courses available students and it is possible to cater your educational experience to your specific interests. I became very interested in perception and neuroscience and was able to find classes about these subjects that counted toward my degree. Overall, I had an excellent experience at the University of Michigan and feel very prepared to enter my graduate studies in Occupational Therapy.
The University of Michigan's musical theater department is well-known internationally as a first tier musical theater program, and none of what you heard is just hype. Indeed it is the place to go if you are looking for training and connections to professionals at the top of their field. Not only will you receive a top-notch education, you will be provided a learning environment that is both safe and nurturing which is critical for an artist that is developing their voice and talent.
My experience at the University of Michigan involved an educational experience inside and outside of the classroom. Not only did I learn from world-renown faculty members who were Pulitzer prize winners and Nobel Laureates, I also learned from the students I lived with. U-M boasts a campus of students from all 50 states and over 114 countries, the students that you live and take classes with have different experiences and add to your learning experience. The one thing that you will learn about is something called, "The Michigan Difference". Some folks will ask exactly what that means. From my experience at Michigan, I have found it to mean a school that specializes in just about everything. Whether you're into the liberal arts, engineering, business, music or Art & Design, Michigan has them all and I can guarantee you they have the resources to do it well. In addition to that they're intertwined with this great small big city that features a multitude of great restaurants and activities. Lastly, the experience you'll have outside of the classroom with our athletics featuring our football team that plays in the largest football stadium in America. They are cheered on by our spirit filled student-body. The academic opportunities, coupled with the spirit and persona of the student population make up the Michigan Difference. Hopefully you will consider making U-M your home!
U of M was an unbelievable experience. I did have to work harder than ever before, but I loved doing the work and seeing the great things that could happen with a degree from Michigan. This university was my dream school, and I could not be happier about the connections or opportunities I have been presented with from this school.
I enjoyed the Psychology Department at the University of Michigan very much. I always felt as if I was being taught by some of the best professors in the field. They were constantly sharing their research and findings with us, and I was offered so many opportunities to work alongside some of the most outstanding individuals in the field.
I loved attending the University of Michigan. Though I came in as a transfer student and thus only had a little over two years there, they were the best two years of my educational careerand I've been to three colleges total. The professors absolutely know their stuff and are generally passionate about what they're teaching, the Graduate Student Instructors for the most part were fun and interactive, and the campus is beautiful. I loved my time at the University of Michigan and would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a bit school that still has a mix of smaller classes available (especially in the Liberal Arts) so you can still get to know your professors and fellow students.
The school is tough. The workforce was much easier. The people were not really very friendly. I majored in Business Administration. The campus is nice, though the separation from central and North campus is way too long. The bus system is OK. The city is nice
University of Michigan was an excellent school for several reasons. I was drawn to it specifically for their undergraduate business program which is among the top undergraduate business schools in the country. There is not a school with more spirit than U of M. Football games in the big house are life changing, and the community fostered in Ann Arbor is unparalleled. Social life aside, University of Michigan is filled with the brightest professors and students from across the world. If you're looking for a school that embodies the work-hard-play-hard mentality, this is the school for you.
Most professors and classes are harder than they need to be, but they still try to help you if you seek it. Be prepared for bureaucracy and and other things that take away from your education. The campus life is pretty great. It is very social and there is plenty to do.
Professional conservatory training at a large university. At U of M, your education is what you make of it. You have to learn to advocate for yourself and to be a bit aggressive in order to get into the more popular courses. It is easy to get lost in the sea of students when you're an LS&A major. But a great way to combat that feeling is to get involved in one of the many extra-curricular activities offered by the university.
