“Unrivalled experience in the Big House!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013


Returning to the Big House as an Alumni left a bittersweet feeling in my heart. The 2013 Spring Commencement was an amazing celebration of the achievements of the Class of 2013, as they are unleashed into the world and will, no doubt, shape the landscape of the world we know today. Being in the Big House, my heart swelled with pride and memories from the 4 years of college flooded back, I am a WOLVERINE and I BLEED MAIZE & BLUE!!

The school spirit & energy in the Big House today was like nothing I've ever experienced before, and abruptly different from 2009 when my class graduated into the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Laughter rang throughout the stadium as the graduates took their place on the field, and exciting chatters and "Congratulations" beamed from the lips of family and friends! The student speakers, Deans, and even the Michigan Governor gave speeches so eloquent that the 100,000+ pair of hands in the stadium was reddened from the endless clapping erupting at the end of every sentence! Our will was so strong that we even beat the rain! Despite the downpour at 6am, and the dark clouds looming over the open stadium throughout the commencement, sunshine beamed through the clouds, shining upon the now-sworn-in ROTC officers in their uniform.

It was a remarkable day to be in the Big House, and a great honor.

“Just a big oval bowl”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Yes, it's big but it is also VERY boring. The stadium itself has ZERO character. There are no seating levels and/or design elements at all. The press boxes add nothing. I was VERY disappointed.

“Fantastic Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Michigan stadium is a great place to watch NCAA football. The wolverines are a historic team and play in the largest stadium in America. The seats closest to the students have more electricity as the students have so much energy. There really isn't a bad seat in the place.

“Cannot take a good picture of stadium”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I tried to take a good picture of the stadium for memory. But I couldn't find a spot to do that. Since the stadium was not open, I cannot get in. Too bad it was such a famous stadium, but no way I can take a good picture of it.
