There's a reason that University of Michigan—Flint is one of the fastest growing colleges, and it "is transforming the way people view Flint, Michigan." "There are so many resources available to UM—Flint for any aspect of life, and the school makes sure that we are aware of them," says a student. Together with a devoted faculty, high retention rates, and a "commitment to quality education at an affordable price," the school provides "an inviting and intellectually stimulating environment to grow in." Each professor "knows their area of study inside and out" and works to "really get you motivated and into the discussions." They are "very open to new ideas and questions," "value relationships with students," and "have a love for their areas of expertise and want you to gain their knowledge."These scions of knowledge are friendly and down-to-earth, and "most of the professors here let us call them by first name, and sometimes we have class at a restaurant or bar." UM—Flint is also known as one of the most veteran-friendly colleges in the country, and veteran students agree. "I've been out of an academic learning environment for over ten years… the professors have made this student veteran feel like I belong," says one. Students "are encouraged to get involved in a wide range of activities," and there are plenty of workshops, career fairs, and opportunities "to network and participate in internships." All in all, "UM—Flint is centered around the students and dedicated to developing individuals to become professionals and contribute to the community."

Overall

The University of Michigan—Flint "is one of the most diverse, culturally influenced campuses." "We are all different colors and different sizes, and we have different lifestyles." "Everyone brings different backgrounds to the table," but they manage to "fit in together seamlessly." "I have walked past 16-year-olds taking early college courses and 75-year-olds getting further education," says a student. With a healthy dose of nontraditional students and veterans thrown into the mix, if you had to pick running themes, it would be "friendly" and "from Flint."

Overview

The school is in the heart of downtown Flint, which is "slowly coming back from the dead," as it is being "completely revitalized and turned into a college town." The campus is "gorgeous," and the school "takes pride in how it looks." On campus, there is the rec center "where you can play anything from racquetball to basketball," and there are "plenty of social events" both on and around campus, even ones "that are not affiliated with the school." There also "are many clubs and groups offered that provide sports and games plus other activities for students." Parties "are big on campus simply because there isn't much else to do in the city on the weekends," but "people stay safe and know their priorities." There are not a lot of classes offered on Friday, which is "awesome!" Many students commute to school; those that do live on campus are required to have a meal plan, but "there are not a lot of choices" in terms of places to eat, and "a lot of students get tired of the same." "I live in the dorms, so there is no lack of social interaction," says a student. To "have fun," people "just spend time with their friends and hang out in other people's rooms."
