Dawn Edford"I am proud to be a UM-Dearborn graduate!  This is a university where providing students with a top notch education is the ultimate priority.  The commitment to academic excellence is reflected in the caliber of the faculty.  I was so impressed with the professors; they are current in their fields of study and dedicated to sharing that knowledge with students.  The campus atmosphere is comfortable and friendly.  Choosing UM-Dearborn was the best decision I made regarding my education."
