It’s admittedly a bit strange to try to determine the “best” college the University of Michigan has to offer. An engineering student probably isn’t going to consider the Ross School of Business the best, just as an arts student at Stamps probably isn’t going to consider the School of Nursing the best. However, due to its sheer size and impact, U of M’s College of Literature, Science and the Arts is more than deserving of the title of Best College.
You’d be hard-pressed to come across a U of M student who hasn’t taken at least one course within LSA. With over 85 majors and over 100 minors, the academic disciplines contained within LSA seem to span nearly all realms of human knowledge. The vast array of degree options available to students allows them to carefully tailor their educational plans to their individual interests and goals.
Aside from its impressive academics, LSA is dedicated to shaping its students both intellectually and socially through specialized learning communities, research opportunities (most notably UROP), internships and study-abroad programs. Through programs like those just mentioned, along with the college’s distribution requirement, LSA understands the importance of developing and improving upon all facets of an individual, not just those related to their intended field of study.
As someone who has taken advantage of both the learning communities and undergraduate research opportunities offered by the college, I’m more than pleased with my experience and am looking forward to my years ahead as an LSA student.
