The people hang out with their high-school friends, so being out-of state is really hard at first. And then, if you are a girl who doesn't want to join a sorority, you are out of luck. People are down to earth, but you have to work hard to find anyone who actually cares about their studies, or is abnormal or interesting. It's incredibly cold, and I barely left my building if I didn't have to. You are very isolated in the Michigan Bubble, and it was just not the place for me. I did, however, love my classes—I learned a lot, and the Communications Studies courses are really interesting, though many people here didn't take their courses seriously. I am switching schools, because it's just not the right place for me. I never felt at home there.
responseI strongly agree that being in an out-of-state student can be very hard, especially if you are not Greek. I was an out-of-state independent, and really didn't like it. It's very true that everyone hangs out with their high school friends, and I left after my freshman year.

I think I really could've liked UM if I had good friends there. If I had to do it all over again, I would've rushed from the start. Oh well. But I do strongly advise out of state students to consider going Greek.
