Michigan Traditions

“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

The thing I love about being a part of Michigan is more than basketball. It is more like a family. We laugh and joke off the court, but when we are on the court we play hard. Outside of basketball it is just friendships you have for the rest of your life.

Basketball is only a time slot in your life. There are life values that you need to have and Michigan helps provide that. It is just more than basketball. It's about growing up and maturing. Our coaching staff does a great job not only teaching the basketball side of things, but they also focus on key life lessons that you can carry for the rest of your life. It just shapes you into a better man.

The University of Michigan strives to include people that want to continue our legacy of being the leaders and best in the classroom and on the field. It takes a special person to look at those high standards and want to surpass them. The athletes brought to this University work towards exponentially increasing our success everyday. Who else understands what you have been through other then the girls training with you every day? The sweat, the injuries, the losses and victories … No one else understands the work you have put in. If you’ve ever had the chance to win a title, you know what I mean. The only people you want to share it with are the people who understand. We all are the University of Michigan and we came here to win!

The Michigan ‘connection’ has helped open doors for me, especially in business. In fact, my reputation as a former golfer from the University of Michigan often precedes me; it is a status not many can claim. I am thankful for my time at Michigan, because it truly helped shape my life in the best possible way. Go Blue!

Michigan has provided me with so much support and I am very grateful for that. Being able to train every day with the best athletes along with the coaching that I receive allows me to better myself as the athlete I hope to one day be. Not only does this school provide me with the best athletic opportunities, it is also one of the best academic institutions in America that pushes me to pursue my academic goals as well. Being an elementary education major, I have the chance to work with great professors and GSIs that motivate me to be a successful and driven student. This school has taught me that the sky is the limit, and anything is possible if you keep your priorities straight and make use of the helpful resources that are provided for you.
