University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (58)
Looking back at my first day on campus at the University of Michigan, I remember being a shy and soft-spoken girl with my eyes wide open in awe of the enormously overwhelming campus and city of Ann Arbor. Frantically scrambling out of the parking garage with my mother attempting to navigate the streets of the biggest city I had ever been to, we were immediately approached by two gentlemen who recognized our loss of direction and kindly pointed us the right way to orientation followed by the statement "you will find that Ann Arbor is the most beautiful city, the city itself bleeds into the campus." That statement stuck with me all throughout my studies. U of M set in a big bustling city where life outside of school existed and thrived gave me the opportunities that I found to be the most stimulating and rewarding component of my education. Because the city of Ann Arbor "bled" right into the campus, I was exposed to real world opportunities and experiences that my isolated, cozy little hometown in Northern Michigan was unable to do. I learned how to confidently present myself in front a room full of people and navigate through a sea of subjects and liberal arts classes to find my true talents and passions. My professors were awe inspiring each day, challenged me to dream bigger, to be a better student, and ultimately a better person. U of M gave me a taste of what was rewarded from real hard work and showed me the global impact that I had the potential to achieve in life. I carry this confidence and ambition into my graduate education as I pursue my Master's in Physician Assistant Studies. This everlasting imprint of Michigan to always dream bigger and do better has inspired me to push my career goals into global medicine and healthcare in hopes of giving back to underserved and small communities such as the one I came from. I dream of helping everyone achieve their greatest potential in the same way I was given the privilege to do so. Forever, Go Blue.
The University of Michigan is an incredibly diverse entity in terms of both the student body and curriculum. I believe that I received a well-rounded education, as the pre-requisites I was required to take for my major gave me a solid basis for understanding political science as a whole, but the program also encouraged students to branch out and try courses not necessarily linked to their majors. Beyond this, the faculty at U of M is phenomenal; not just the professors, but also counselors.
The University of Michigan is the greatest school in the world. I would recommend it to anyone. It offers all types of classes with many career and degree opportunities. The professors in the school of Kinesiology are reputable and approachable. The school offers many perks to people of all types.
College was an incredible experience academically, professionally, and socially. It helped me grow as a person and I learned valuable skills for future stages of life.
The honor of attending one of the best Universities in the country is almost worth the terribly steep student loans I will be paying off for the rest of my life. Great faculty. Great campus. Great city. Great programs.
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.
University of Michigan is an outstanding (although cutthroat) academic environment. While difficult (especially during the first semester), it has prepared me not only academically, but professionally and emotionally. It creates a challenging environment that will mold you to become a functional independent unit that has the ability to take on the "real" world.
Michigan is a big school with lots of opportunities. Professors are high caliber, but do not baby sit. You have to make an effort to establish relationships with professors. Due to the school's size, there is a lot of bureaucracy. Sometimes it can be hard to find your niche. The campus is beautiful and easy to navigate. Ann Arbor is a great town with lots of good bars, restaurants, and activities. Off campus housing is recommended after your first year.
The University of Michigan is a wonderful place to get your undergraduate degree. Now that I'm in the real world, I've only come to value it more. While academics are important and strong, Michigan has an incredible focus on getting involved in clubs and the community. Because of that, I was able to develop as a leader in a way that I wouldn't have been able to had I attended another university. Plus, there is no one who doesn't use the word "love" to describe their time at Michigan. That kind of passion towards an institution is unmatched by any other.
U of M is a fantastic school. It is a large University with a rich history. The faculty and facilities are great. The city of Ann Arbor is an amazing college town. Big time athletics is a major plus.
