What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
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.
