Most expressways — including Interstate-94, the highway you will take to Ann Arbor from Detroit Metropolitan Airport — are "limited access," which means that you may only enter and exit at designated points.

Electricity

The electrical current in the U.S. is 120/220 AC.


Dress

Like most college towns, Ann Arbor tends to be very informal, and there are few places that require formal attire. Dress in the classroom tends to be business casual or country-club casual. We invite you to dress for your own comfort. The temperature in the classrooms is electronically controlled, but since individual comfort levels vary, it's a good idea to bring a sweater or jacket with you to class every day. Be sure to take the weather into consideration when packing. 


Cultural Notes

Most people, men and women, greet each other with a handshake. Introductions usually include both first and last name. You will find most Americans friendly and helpful, and Ann Arbor in particular is a safe and friendly town. Please feel free to ask for directions or assistance. However, we do not recommend accepting rides from strangers. Always exercise common sense and caution when walking alone at night in the city or around campus.

In Ann Arbor it is illegal to have open alcohol outside of your room or drinking establishments.

Michigan law prohibits smoking in restaurants, bars, education facilities, and businesses, including all University of Michigan buildings and grounds. Guest rooms at the Executive Residence by law are smoke-free. Smokers are asked to smoke outside on public sidewalks.
