    What's there to do in Michigan?

    I'm going to grad school at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor this fall, and I was wondering what fun things are there to do in Michigan/around Ann Arbor?

    Snowmobiling. But I guess you could do that anywhere.

    When all else fails, you could always hop on I-94 and come to Chicago

    If Ann Arbor is anything like Madison, Wisconsin I am sure a young graduate student can find plenty to entertain himself. Where did you go for undergraduate school? What is your area of study?

    I just got my BA in biology from Rutgers in May. I'll be studying biostat at U-M.

    Re: What's there to do in Michigan?

    Congratulations on your degree and on your acceptance into a U of Michigan program. You will find the Winters a bit brisker than in New Jersey! While you won't have NYC to fall back on at Ann Arbor I am sure there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. And if you get lonely for the likes of NYC, Chicago isn't that far off. Chicago, in my experience is a very different experience from NYC, but an interesting and fun place to experience none the less. A real eye opener for a "Coastal Type!"

    Of course there is always the the graduate and undergraduate female population .... which i am sure equals Wisconsin's for brains and pulchritude. Both schools are major institutions for international students and i am sure those from various parts of the States should make it interesting.

    Is there anything fun to do in Detroit? I've always wanted to visit there but some friends advised against it - perhaps jokingly, perhaps not.

    Re: What's there to do in Michigan?

    Let me see:
    Graduate student: Checked
    Good school: Checked
    Relatively hard major: Checked

    Conclusion: Don't bother asking about fun things to do in Michigan. You will not have energy or time to do them while you are a graduate student and even if have time and energy, you will not be in the mood (been there, done that)

    Here it is: A good hobby for graduate student! You can keep yourself amused with this website:

    Welcome to the graduate school my friend....

    Well said, Ben.gators! When contemplating graduate school they don't tell you that you exist only for the benefit of the university (teaching assistants) and the professors (cheap research and writing labor). That being said, Ben an electrical engineering Phd candidate, did find the Liberal Arts Library and its' free but not inconsiderable benefits! If a E.E. guy can do it so can a Bio-Stat guy!

    I will also ad that given the upper Mid-West climate most of the fun things to do are inside!

    Living in Michigan would give you easy access to a lake from almost anywhere in the state. When you get the means, it would be cool to have a boat.

    LOL for liberal arts..... That is true...

    By the way, Orconn, did I say you that Hawaii is finally confirmed? I will move to your old school, UH at Manoa, after finishing my PhD here. Then I will need your experiences in Hawaii, specially the ones that relate to Waikiki....

    Re: What's there to do in Michigan?

    That is very true... But I'm leaving NJ for Ann Arbor about 2 weeks before school starts, and I'm looking to have a mini-vacation there before getting all bugged down with school work.

    CTS is probably going to stay at home... At least for the fall/winter.
