The University of Michigan Dearborn is a verySuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
The University of Michigan Dearborn is a very RACIST school. The admissions department/financial aid office BLATANTLY concealed and stolen a $3,000 non-renewable transfer scholarship that was automatically due to me when I transferred there in the fall of 2012. Being an African-American male, they assume that all blacks are dumb! Well, not me. I am trying to retrieve from these white supremacist what they have taken from me!

This school is dangerous, ghetto, filled with racistQuite BrightBiology
This school is dangerous, ghetto, filled with racist people, prostitutes, rapists, and the staff is just as violent IF not more physically violent than the students. I transferred into this university with a high GPA, and I maintained excellent grades until I had to face the violence that had been afflicted onto me. I became a victim of being physically attacked by staff and students. I filed numerous of complaints against the abusive individuals, but the administrators are just too ghetto, lazy, filled w/ too much attitude, and incompetent to address matters that are of a serious nature.

About 90% of the professors cannot speak English. I had a professor who kept speaking the Arabic language in class, and blatantly ignoring the English speaking students in the class room for several hours . Those types of instructors allowed their own culture to cheat on the exams, and the professors would admit to allowing "certain people" to cheat as if it was ok. When it was not. The Americans were marked wrong even when they had corrects answers. However, many of the students who cheated kept their fabricated scores. I filed a complaint about that and yes you guessed it....nothing had been done about that. There was another teacher who compared herself to the KKK, so basically this school is full of racism.

During the summer a girl was raped, and the school did nothing about it. They took forever to inform students to be careful since the rapists was still on the loose. Students would also walk up to randomly punch people they don't even know, again teachers would see it and walk away. Don't join the Greek life, they use hardcore drugs and they are way too superficial. They do haze btw. Greek life should be called "Ghetto life.

Recently, I was physically assaulted by a ghetto staff member for no reason. I was in a completely different room studying when the administrator came in, crept up onto me, and struck me - as in physically assaulting me. I reported it, and the school did not take any disciplinary action. Instead, I was ridiculed, mistreated, and humiliated. With that being said, this has got to be the most dangerous university in Michigan. I'd say 95% of the staff hates their jobs. I believe that most of the administrators or staff received their degrees in a penitentiary b/c there's no way, any normal human being can work and behave like a criminal on a regular basis.

The school also has a horrible scheduling, they keep changing professors w/out notifying paying students. No online classes like other schools. No security walking inside the building or where the students are on the grounds. Not a lot of degree programs like other schools in case you want to change a major. The school is filthy, this school is a hot mess. I attended an excellent college before coming here and my previous college makes UMD look like the projects. If I could do it over again, I would've went to any other university other than UMD. What a waste of money and happiness. Spare yourself the stress don't go here.
