Founded in 1817, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor is the state’s oldest university. U of M is a Public Ivy with “very high research” according to the Carnegie Foundation. With 19 schools and colleges, the largest stadium by capacity in the US, and over 1,500 student organizations, this top-ranked large university has been named #28 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
The University of Michigan is truly an incredible place with incredible people. There is a lot of school pride about both academics and athletics, and although the academics are challenging, there is a good combination of studying and fun. I would recommend U of M to anyone.

U of M is academically challenging and stimulating, with awesome professors and abundant research opportunities. When not studying, there are literally thousands of clubs and extracurricular activities that students can be involved in-everyone can find there niche! There is also lots of play time-Ann Arbor is a city abundant in interesting restaurants, bars, parks, and places to explore and adventure.
