What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
School spirit is UNBEATABLE here. Big 10 school plus top 10 engineering school. Known for diversity and work hard play hard attitude.
Julia from Ann Arbor, MI
Big, but doesn't feel so if you choose to join a Living Community or have a particularly social floor.

Social, but definitely favors the extrovert who participates in Greek Life.

Incredible amplitude of opportunity, but only if you actively pursue it.
A Girl from Florida
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.
