U of M is amazing! We have the best all around sports programs in the country and football Saturday's are great. Ann Arbor is a beautiful city and the campus has so much to offer! I loved being away from home and experiencing new things that I would have never done if I stayed closed to home for college.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2011

Overall Rating

My most memorable experience was living in the residence halls freshman year. I met my best friends my freshman year. Also I was able to travel the world and the country at Michigan. Interning at Columbia University, and volunteering in Vietnam were experiences that I will treasure all of my life. As a foreign language major I also traveled to Germany. Michigan also has tons of opportunities to do research and I was able to be acknowledged for my work in two academic research papers as well as present twice at academic research forums.
