Founded in 1817, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is the state’s oldest university. U of M has very high research activity and is a often referred to as a Public Ivy. The university at Ann Arbor offers upwards of 260 degrees for undergraduates, and students apply to the specific school or college among the 14, which each have their own admission requirements, based on their intended major.

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.
