The number one reason someone should attend the University of Michigan- Flint is for the size of the campus. It is small, which allows students to become familiar with faculty, staff, and other students. For those living in and around Flint, it is a fantastic, economical way to obtain a college degree and not end up in thousands of dollars of debt. The second reason is for the people. The faculty and staff are absolutely excellent. They have real life experience in their fields and go out of their way to help you when you ask for it. The size of the campus allows you to participate in smaller class sizes, which helps to foster better relationships and understandings with your professors. The students are also a wonderful part of the campus. The classes are diverse and there are people of all backgrounds coming together to work on projects, come up with ways to make the world a better place, and learning how to be beneficial members of society. The third reason is for the opportunities. Smaller class sizes allows for that student- teacher understanding, which can lead to research opportunities, internships, student teaching positions, and excellent work experience to put on your resume and prepare you for your field. It is an excellent choice, and I am very happy to be a U of M student.
