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.
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.

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.
