Every day I learn something new about my area of study and about adult life. College has helped me so much more than high school ever could, and I so look forward to becoming a teacher and passing this joy on to other students.
Am enjoying being here
Out of all the colleges I have visited in my area, U of M Flint has the most friendly staff. Policies, as always, can be a pain, but being a government employee, I know that there is not alot a worker can do to get around those policies for the students. U of M Staff seems to do their very best to help notify students of these policies and their changes before it becomes a problem.
Bang for the buck
The fees for attendance is quite expensive, but there are so many qualities and benefits of this school, that I think that it is worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure that you get your books ahead of time and be a savvy shopper. The university bookstore can have some good deals on textbook prices, but alot of times, you can get them much cheaper online, or through your local library's electronic ordering system.
Great for these types of students
Great for social butterflies and anyone with a specific interest. There are so many clubs and programs to be a part of, ranging from fine arts, to government, to sexual orientation. The university gym use is free to all students and most athletic classes are cheaper there than at your local gym.

University of Michigan-Flint prepares you for your career field while ensuring you've tried a bit of everything before graduating. There are a few professors who aren't that great at teaching, but they are few and greatly surpassed by their colleagues who do their best to make sure you understand the material. First semester tends to be rough on freshman, but you'll catch on quick and figure out what works and doesn't work for scheduling your courses.

University of Michigan-Flint's campus is moderately- sized, bordering on small. The Skywalks are a unique addition to its campus, which the student body generally appreciates, especially in the winter when we have to travel from building to building. People here are friendly for the most part- the student body is diverse and open-minded, so it's hard not to make a friend here. The food is pretty decent, but somewhat overpriced. The library is a great place to study, with myriad books and desks with walls that enable you to focus on your work- and you also can use books from Ann Arbor's campus if you request them online. There are several clubs you can join, and several volunteering opportunities.
Bang for the buck
University of Michigan-Flint is DEFINITELY worth the money you pay for your education, here's why:
- The classes are generally smaller than you would find at larger universities, even when we're talking about lecture hall-based courses.
- This means more individualized attention per student, which is good for you because the professor will do his/her best to make sure you understand the material. The staff is generally very encouraging.
- Tuition isn't as expensive as most other colleges, and there are several scholarship opportunities available.
- More individualized attention also means it's easier to study abroad via UofM-Flint.
- When you graduate, your diploma will say you graduated from University of Michigan without specifying which branch, so you will still have graduated from the big reputable university.
Tips for prospective students
- Make sure you order your books at least two-three weeks ahead of time.
- Be sure you know where your classes are located before you start school.
- DO NOT HESITATE TO DROP A COURSE OR TWO. You have plenty of time to drop one, but after the drop deadline has passed and you try to drop a course, they put you through hell in order for you to do so, and there's a chance the committee who reviews your case might not let you pass.
- There's a LOT of work involved in the Honors Program, and half of it doesn't seem like it will be useful. Professors in and out of the program are usually very understanding though, so don't be hesitant to get to know them and work with them.
- If you're entirely new to the university and are having a hard time making friends, join a club or two at the beginning of the semester, that is based around things you may be interested in, e.x. Anime Club or Poet and Writer's Society (PAWS). You'll be bound to make a friend or two, people here are open and friendly for the most part.
Great for these types of students
University of Michigan- Flint is great for students who are willing to learn, who would like their professors to remember their names, who appreciate a friendly atmosphere and a diverse student body, who like small campuses and both nature and the city, who like more hands-on experience and opportunities, and who enjoy a peaceful and calm atmosphere.

Am learning a lot
I am learning new skills and qualities, including awesomely helpful new lecture notes, new note-taking strategies, and getting extended time on exams and quizzes. The strategies empower me to annotate textbooks, take better lecture notes, and learn more vocabulary. Getting extended time on exams and quizzes suits very well with my disabilities and my work ethic. They are and will be useful and helpful for me in the years ahead at UM-Flint.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy being at the University of Michigan-Flint. The campus food and restaurants taste as delicious as the food that is cooked by a famous chef. The professors, staff members, and students are so diverse and friendly, they have equal treatment and respect for all forms of people. The campus events are very enjoyable, and the work environment is professional in an office setting. I see myself completing my ultimate career dream in UM-Flint.
Bang for the buck
The cost of tuition, books, attendance, and housing was reasonable for me. The hardest part of paying for housing was applying for student loans. I had to get them anyway because I didn't have enough money for housing and books. Nevertheless, it was worth the cost. I'm residing in a studio apartment that is very nice and clean and I'm happy to live in a place of my own. I don't intend on getting more loans in the future.
Tips for prospective students
Don't apply for more loans than what you need. Always apply for scholarships and grants. Always produce the best academic results as possible. Always take notes and lecture notes. Work forward for the ultimate career dreams that you desire to realize and complete. Lastly, if and when help is offered to you, accept it instead of deny it.
Great for these types of students
There is assistance for students, especially those who have ultimate career dreams to complete. There are student organization groups such as the Video Gamers' Club in the UM-Flint campus. The groups will assist and empower students in their road to success as well as the realization of their ultimate career dreams.

This school is amazing. The campus is great and the people are awesome. I am so glad I chose this school!
Tips for prospective students
Don't put it down because it is in Flint, this is an amazing school with amazing staff and students.
Academic Rigor
I have loved my classes and all my teachers so far!
Dorm Life
It's not bad, I just want to be with my cats and boyfriend. The dorms are really nice and being right on campus is extremely convenient!
Food and Dining
It is pretty expensive and it varies, but is usually really good.
What to do for fun
I am really busy with classes and sorority stuff so I don't get out much. Joining a sorority was a great choice, and they have a lot of other things you can join as well like clubs, sports, etc.
Bang for the buck
Greek life here is amazing, I have met some truly amazing people through it. I cannot wait to see how the rest of my time here goes. I have already became more outgoing and confident because of the sorority and it definitely has brought out the leader in me!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Not that I can think of.. The student loft is really chill though, I like to spend time in there in between classes/meetings.
Great for these types of students
This is a great school for anyone! It is very diverse, that is one of the things I love about it.
Clubs and Activities
U of M - Flint has a lot to offer for everyone's interests! And if you don't see what you are interested in, start your own club!
Greek Life
As I have said, I absolutely love it!! I joined as a freshman and it has completely transformed my life already!
Campus Safety
They are driving around all the time and there if you need them for anything. Nothing too big or too small.
