Abigail - 3/5/2015
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2004
"Michigan is an excellent engineering school. They have a tough program that ensures graduates will be prepared for programming jobs at the toughest companies. (I work at a company that I guarantee you've heard of.) Those companies know it and recruit there. Michigan also has outstanding research opportunities if you want to pursue higher education (as an end or on the road to employment outside of academia). Undergrads have many opportunities to network with each other, through engineering fraternities or student groups, and to work on research with grad students and faculty. In addition to outstanding engineering faculty, resources and programs, you have the opportunity to take classes in many other subject areas (for your electives) with world-class faculty, experts in their area. There are hundreds of student groups across sports, religions, hobbies, and anything you'd want to do. Whatever your interest, you can pursue it, deeply or casually. Not to mention you football, hockey and basketball teams actually worth watching. You will occasionally see lower-level classes where faculty aren't the best teachers and most of your interaction comes with GSIs (TAs), but the vast majority of my professors were excellent instructors."

Hillary Kolb - 8/5/2014
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"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."

Brandi - 8/5/2014
Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013
"My time at the University of Michigan was the most challenging, yet rewarding and fun time of my life. I would gladly recommend this university, along with the Industrial Engineering program to anyone. I have had great success after graduation as well, and I know that my education at the University of Michigan was a huge part of that."

Maya S. - 8/5/2014
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"I obtained a dual major in Political Science and International Studies. My university's counselors were helpful in suggesting courses and approving abroad credits to ensure I finished both majors on time. I took interesting classes that exposed me to worldwide diversity, protecting human rights, and other interesting topics."
