“From the Big House to the Campus, all is terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Being part of the largest crowd in football history (over 115,000) is exhilarating and exciting. Just being inside the Big House is awe inspiring. The campus is nice and the venues for entertainment cannot be bettered anywhere. From Hill Auditorium to the Power Center to Lydia Mendelsson Theatre, there are performing arts experiences to be had.

“Always a Great Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

I get to take the kids to a couple of games each year and always have fun. The Stadium upgrades are very nice and had great seats last time at the 50 yard line 35 up.

“The Big House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Big House is one of the best places to watch college football. Be sure to tailgate pre-game, it is definitely an experience.

“It's the best college town in America!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Aside from the obvious (the Big House, the main campus, the student hangouts) it has the best entertainment venues for all of the performing arts, both grand and jewel box, where great talent can be enjoyed (from Dylan to Willie Nelson to Bernadette Peters to Baryshnikov to the Royal Shakespeare Company to Cecilia Bartoli); a selection of dining establishments that rivals Chicago and Toronto for variety, quality and range of cuisines; club life for all tastes; and a cosmopolitan culture of extraordinary range and diversity. All this plus lovely parks, neighborhoods, river front recreational facilities and a quality of life rated by many publications as among the best in America.

“The Big House!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

What can you say about the largest assemblage of people in the country? The U of M stadium is awesome. I found myself just looking around in awe of the mass of people many times during the football game. Of course food is overpriced, but taste is better than average. Be sure to check the rule of what is not permitted inside to save a hassle at the gate.
