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

Michigan field hockey has helped me become the person I am today. When I first arrived four years ago, I was quiet and unsure of what I was capable of and how I would do as a student-athlete. As I enter my fifth year at Michigan, I can safely say that I have become increasingly confident and have been pushed beyond expectations in order to develop into a true Michigan Woman both on and off the field.

My five years as a Michigan student-athlete will always be one of the best experiences of my life. I not only graduated from Michigan with a valuable degree, but more importantly, with valuable and lifelong relationships that continue to be a blessing to me so many years later. You spend so much time with your teammates, and in that time you learn how to celebrate each other, love each other unconditionally, and to sacrifice for the good of the whole. There is no way you can spend 4 or 5 years in an environment like that and not take those things with you when you leave. I had five years of insane laughter, accumulated hundreds of crazy stories to tell my children, and found a group of friends I will have forever. I wouldn't trade my experience wearing the block M for anything. Go Blue.

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.

Playing golf at Michigan is a very special experience, and one that I have cherished since graduation. We were given all of the tools to succeed on and off the course - including state-of-the-art practice facilities, equipment, coaches and trainers, not to mention one of the top college courses in the country.
