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

My time at Michigan was one of the best experiences of my life that gave me fond memories and lifetime friendships. Over the years, it has also become very evident that it is, and has always been, the driving force for paving my career path. Being part of a team filled with 'Michigan Men' helped shaped my ambitions, work ethic and ability to succeed. The experiences and friendships created at Michigan will undoubtedly last forever. Four years of hard work and dedication don't just get you a career, lasting friendships and incredible experiences -- it earns you the pride of being able to say ‘I am a Michigan Man.

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.

Michigan means the world to me. Having spent close to four years here, it truly has become a second home and I could not ask for anything better. It is a place that no matter how far away I may travel, it will always stay close to my heart. I am surrounded by amazing and caring people who have become family. I love being able to represent the Block M when traveling and getting the opportunity to play some of the best venues in the country.
