"My degree didn't directly prepare me to work in the Psychology field because it is a field in which a graduate degree is required, which is what I am working toward now. However, I took classes that gave me real life experiences through volunteering and internships that helped to make my learning more concrete and applicable to the real world. It's a massive school with a crazy amount of resources, but it's on you to find and take advantage of them."

"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."

"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."

"University of Michigan was great in some areas and spotty in others. I ended up majoring in Psychology, with a minor in Philosophy. I also understand that my path does not provide the greatest earning potential for graduates. For the most part, more advanced courses had much better instructors, and I would say that I learned a lot from majoring in Psychology. However, I felt ill-prepared for a career afterwards, as my psychology and general advisors did very little to help me and explain different possibilities that I could take, as well as things that I should be focusing on in undergrad. They did not give any information on Honors programs, what they would do to help, different directions that you can take with a psychology degree, and as a result, I felt ill-prepared after I graduated. There was also no networking opportunities. I worked my undergrad job for about 3 months, and later found a administrative job unrelated to psychology at a non-profit medical research facility, where I worked for a year. During that time, I was on the lookout for psychology research positions, and about 300 applications later, I was hired by a professor at the University of Washington to be a lab manager / researcher. I spent 2.5 years with her and by working there, I gained the skills and knowledge and decided to pursue a PhD., which I have been accepted at UC Irvine. However, other than the fact that I received a degree from the University of Michigan, I feel that attending undergrad there did nothing to help lead me into any particular career path."

"My university is a highly respected school with a rigorous curriculum and is well known around the world. The course work is very challenging but engaging and makes you think more critically."

"Incredible academic and non-academic experience at the university. Not only was it an extremely diverse community, but the bonds that you will form are incredibly tight and what's great is that there is something for everyone. If you want to get into the sports scene, you can see some of the nation's best teams. If you want to get into Greek life, there is a very strong presence on campus. If you want to just sit around and be a hippie, there's plenty of that to go around. Ann Arbor is a great college town, but it's one of the only schools I've visited and experienced where literally just about everything is accessible. Hell, even if you want to take some road trips with your friends, Canada, Chicago, Indy, and Ohio are all in reasonable distances."

"I loved and will always love the University of Michigan. I cannot express how wonderful my experience was there. Not only did I get a high quality education, but I made countless memories that I will never forget. Ann Arbor itself is such a lively city with something always going on - you'll never be bored on the weekends. I know a lot of individuals are intimidated by large campuses with large class sizes but I cannot even explain how amazing my overall experience was here. I'd go back in a heart beat and relive it all again if I could."

"Experience is key to be successful. If you have not yet begun your college career I recommend that you volunteer for an organization in your career field so that you can gain hands on experience. Here you can build upon your experience, skill-sets and build meaningful connections in the professional world. You can explore whether or not the field you have chosen is exactly what you would like to do for a living and in addition you can gain the experience you will need to apply to a position, possibly part-time to help afford tuition and living expenses. I love my volunteer experiences and I highly recommend that everyone finds at least one place to dedicate volunteer work; it just makes you happy and builds that experience."
