College Tour '10: University of Michigan

By Valerie Strauss

ANN ARBOR, MI
University of Michigan
From a parent

The one thing that stood out for us was the football stadium. It is iconic. They call it the Big House, and it is a destination in and of itself. They charge kids a couple hundred dollars for a season of football tickets but everybody loves to go to the games. The school had a lot of school spirit.

We really liked the balance of sports and academic excellence, including the honors colleges for freshmen.

Ann Arbor seems like a great town to spend time in. They get a lot of theater and comedy groups and music groups there, which are pretty cool.

The kids on campus -- and there are a lot of them! -- seemed very engaged.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at theanswersheet@washpost.com.
