Michigan Traditions

Explore Ann Arbor Campus Life

“Here at Michigan, Olympians coach me. Nobel Prize winners lecture me. I eat lunch with All-Americans. In the athletic training room, I sit next to Big Ten champions. I meet with prize-winning authors during their office hours. I take class notes next to American record-holders. I walk to class with members of national championship teams. I open doors once opened by Oscar-winning actors, former Presidents and astronauts ... it's all in the day of a Michigan student-athlete.” Shelley Johnson, Michigan Field Hockey Alumna

Being a student-athlete at Michigan has allowed me numerous opportunities that I would never have been able to experience had I gone to a different university. Michigan is truly a special place that has become incredibly important in shaping who I have become as a person and not just a student-athlete.

When you come into Michigan you know that you're becoming a part of something way bigger than anything you've ever been a part of before. The tradition here is something that doesn't go unnoticed and it is definitely one of the many reasons why I chose to come here. The feeling that I get when I walk into practice every day and get to put on that shirt with Michigan across the front of it is the type of feeling everyone wants to feel. I'm just blessed to be able to be one of the 20 women in the world that gets to experience the best place on earth every day and I'm blessed with an amazing family.

Being an international swimmer, this place has become my home. As student-athletes, you're given so much, from a fantastic team atmosphere and a great training pool with a lot of history to the classrooms up on campus. Here, you can get the full student-athlete experience, and that's because of all the support. Everyone here wants to see you do well. The culture of this team is special. It breeds success and that's what Michigan is all about -- the team and how successful you can become within that dynamic. It's the best place to be.

Michigan was my last college visit. As a junior in high school, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted in a school. I was nervous to make such a big decision. One thing I was absolutely confident in was that I wanted to compete in the best conference in the country. After my weekend in Ann Arbor, I knew this was hands down the place for me! Michigan offers something special that I had not felt at other schools. I walked off of campus and knew I would always be proud of being a Michigan Wolverine. I knew for my entire life, I would wear the Block M with pride knowing I represented one of the best academic and athletic institutions in America. Go Blue!
