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

Being a University of Michigan student-athlete means being a part of a family. It means that you will be supported and challenged, provided for and expected from, and nurtured and believed in. You are given all the necessary resources to succeed in your academics, in your athletics, and most importantly, in life; but that does not mean it comes easy. As a Michigan student-athlete, I have been pushed to my limits in my engineering courses. My strength and courage have been tested through my workouts on the track; and I have experienced enough life lessons for a lifetime. What all those struggles have in common is that I overcame them. I, like 900+ other student-athletes, accepted the challenges that come with being the best, to be Victors. When we pump our fists and shout, “Hail! to the victors valiant”, we feel a sense of joy and pride knowing that we truly are the leaders and best. Come. Accept the challenge. Go Blue!

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!
