About the University of Michigan: The University of Michigan is one of a small number of public universities consistently ranked among the top ten universities in the United States. Over 36,000 undergraduates and graduate students are enrolled on the Ann Arbor campus in a wide variety of fields, including law, medicine, engineering, public health and music. Founded in 1817, the school moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor in 1837. There are a total of 18 schools and colleges on the Ann Arbor campus, plus campuses in Flint and Dearborn, Michigan. A walk across the University of Michigan campus is an absorbing experience.

About Ann Arbor, Michigan: The city of Ann Arbor is small enough to bike across in an afternoon yet diverse enough to attract top performing artists from throughout the world and support a host of gourmet restaurants. Ann Arbor offers all of the advantages of big city living: museums, live theatre, expansive parks, extensive shopping and a diverse population: all combining for a very cosmopolitan atmosphere. What to do? The choices are many; savor the sights and smells of a farmer's market, listen to an impromptu jazz concert or lecture. Visit a museum or an antique shop. Browse in some of the finest bookstores in the world. Shop in unique art galleries and boutiques, or sip cappuccino and people-watch at a cafe. There is plenty to see and do; whether you're here for just a day or an entire week. Golf, hike, jog, canoe, swim or bike: recreational opportunities are abundant throughout the area. Best of all, however, is the small town appeal with the advantages of friendliness, accessibility, and easy lifestyle. You are invited to explore the many attractions, which make this community one of the Midwest's most popular visitor destinations.

Weather: Temperatures in March are extremely variable, from sunny and 70 degrees to 35 and snowing. Check the weather before you come, and bring a coat that's good for wind, rain, and light snow just in case! Our motto in Michigan is, "If you don't like the weather in Michigan, just wait a few hours---it will change!"
