Summer at the University of Michigan: U-M by the Numbers


Hey everyone! Welcome back, I’m Lauren and this is another episode of Summer at Michigan. I haven’t been attending
classes this summer, but I have been studying up on some of U-M’s facts and
figures. Hey guys it’s Tatyana! Lauren and I have
researched everything from the number of Olympic athletes here on campus to the
number of meals served in the U-M dining halls. Today we’re gonna break down the
University of Michigan by the numbers and show you what exactly makes it the
number one public university. [music plays] Let’s start with students.There are currently 43,810 students enrolled here on campus
hailing from all 50 states and from 128 different countries. Students come from
around the world to study in one of the 263 degree programs offered across 19
schools, and colleges and they’re taught by 2,900 expert faculty members. Once a student graduates they’re always a Wolverine. They join one of the
strongest alumni networks in the world. U-M has over 611,000 living alumni. And those alumni went on to do some amazing things some of them include a United States president, two dozen governors, 3
Supreme Court justices, the entire crew of the Apollo 15 mission, and 8 Nobel
laureates. Aside from educating the leaders and best, U-M is also recognized
as the number one public research university in the US by the National
Science Foundation. With groundbreaking research projects being done in 227 centers and institutes, it’s no surprise. U-M is home
to Michigan Medicine, the best health system in the state and one of the top
hospitals in the nation. They see 2.4 million patients in a
year. U-M also has a strong investment in Ann Arbor’s artistic community. There are
over 1200 art exhibitions, musical, and theatrical performances every year. Beyond the arts you can find your community on campus by joining one of the 1600 student organizations or the 20 plus intramural sports teams. See the
world and explore your global community. What are you doing? U-M ranked number one in the Big Ten with over 200 study abroad programs on six
continents. For those who might not want to travel, but explore different cultures
we have over 65 foreign languages. Or you can get a taste of international cuisine designed to appeal to any palate at Michigan dining. U-M chefs prepare about
27,000 meals a day including gluten-free, vegan, halal, and vegetarian options. Once you’re fueled up put your game-day face on and head to Michigan Stadium. Better known as the Big House it’s actually the largest stadium in the country with 107,601 seats. What can we say you attract quite a big
fan base with 399 Big Ten athletic championships and over 200 Michigan athletes coaches and alumni who went on to become Olympic medalists. It’s so cool that they all call Ann Arbor home. There’s so many reasons to love Ann Arbor. We’ve been named one of the smartest cities in America and the best college town. Plus as I’ve learned there’s so many fun things to do and places to visit. I hope you guys learn
something new today I know I did. Thank you so much to Tatyana for joining me today. I hope you all enjoyed watching and I’ll see you next week! [music plays]
