the university of michigan-dearborn provides a superior quality education from a well known college yet close enough to home you can save the expense of living in a dorm and graduate without excessive debt. the small class size allows for more direct assistance from your professor and closer connections with classmates. the campus is safe, appealing, diverse and easy to get around.
Jessica from Livonia, MI
I feel that this is a great school! You get a Michigan degree for a fraction of the price! Only complaint is student life, it sometimes doesn't really feel like a college campus that way U of M Ann Arbor or MSU do.
David from dearborn, MI
The campus is beautiful. The class sizes are small. The people here are VERY friendly.
