I attended Kalamazoo for one year, and then transferred to the University of Michigan. I went there to play basketball. The basketball coach was the only good part of the school- he's a great guy. However, the school itself was awful. It costs almost $40,000 a year to go there, and honest to God, I don't know where the money goes. There are no campus events, theres only one basketball court for the whole school (which is usually reserved for varsity sports) and the cafeteria closes at 7. Around 40% of the students were gay, and probably 75% were the artsy type. The party life is nonexistent- the only way to do anything remotely close to partying was to go over to Western. The surrounding city of Kalamazoo was awful too. The Burger King down the street from campus closed at 10 for the drive-thru. I've never heard of such a thing. I ended up taking the train home most weekends, but even the train station was bad- hobos used to get in fights and require police intervention constantly. I pray that you take this advice to heart and come to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I couldn't be happier with my decision- I've met a ton of friends, taken great classes, gotten internships, and I'm going to be studying abroad- not to mention getting a degree from one of the most recognizable and respected institutions in the country.
