Create an itinerary including University of Michigan
Sometimes called the Ivy League of the Midwest, University of Michigan features a campus atmosphere with architecturally designed buildings and the Big House, the university's stadium. The law library is an imposing, Gothic-style building with tall, high-set windows and dangling lights. At the museum of natural history, you can learn about evolution, wildlife, anthropology, and geology, as well as see the planetarium. Next, visit the art museum and its  collections from a broad range of histories and cultures. If you take a tour of the Big House, you'll get to see the stadium field, game-day locker rooms, the press box, and the club and suite levels.

  • I didn't go here, but visited the campus. The library is something straight out of Harry Potter. It's beautiful, and you can really feel the school spirit. I think the students, faculty, and anyone associated with the school is proud of it.
  • In the first place, Michigan remains a top-rated public university. It has many stellar departments, and your degree will open doors anywhere from social work to engineering to medicine. When I was there, the campus was nice and spacious. There are also many extra-curricular opportunities including football, Greek life and volunteering. However, Michigan is not for everyone. If you like a more intimate, hometown college feel, you may not prefer this school. On the other hand, if you are a self-starter and a second-generation college student, you will do fine. Navigating U of M's serpentine class scheduling and financial aid systems as a first-generation college student would have been a nightmare. As an out-of-state student, I regret not seeking more grants and scholarships, otherwise I had a great experience at U of M.
