As is typical of large universities, students will experience UM in proportion to the effort they invest. There is no shortage of opportunity, whether academic, cultural, or social, such that all but the most insular or painfully shy individual will be able to find what he or she requires to succeed in and out of school. So the beauty of Michigan is that everything is within your grasp; the downside is that "everything" really is comprehensive. You can meet arrogant, spoiled rich kids, hyper-competitive rivals, slackers, party freaks or you can enjoy many welcoming, kind, intellectually curious, and appropriately hard-working, socially normal folks.

For me, though, Ann Arbor is the icing on the cake - or maybe the second layer. While not the most diverse city around, is is relatively progressive, with a good mix of midwestern and east/west coast values. There is as much culture as you'll find in much larger places, a commitment to the environment, and plenty of recreational venues.

All in all, a great university, but not for the passive.
