Overall Rating

The things that I admire most about this university is that it focuses on student success and provides different techniques on how to succeed. Also, the class sizes are very small and you have a better understanding of the material that is being taught. Memorable tips are to use the resources that are provided to you because they are very helpful and you will need them. Talk to your professors and get to know them because that will help you and they will know that you are trying if you ask them for help.


Overall Rating

Overall I think the University of Michigan-Dearborn is an underrated school. It is a great college environment with a lively atmosphere. I know many friends and family who have attended the university and had many great things to say about it. I intend to major in Computer Science or Computer Engineering, and I have learned that the University of Michigan-Dearborn has an outstanding School of Engineering. The thing I like most is that it is a prototypical college environment. I want that genuine college experience, that big social explosion people experience in college, but at the same time I do better in small crowds. I feel the university would be a good fit for me because the class sizes are small, and the campus is not overcrowded. I smaller university gives a close-to-home feeling. To any prospective students I would say choose a university to attend not for how well known it is, or how amazing your parents think it is, choose a university that caters to you. Decide on a university that keeps you grounded, a place where you know that you will have great focus in whatever career path you pursue.
