Colleges in Michigan

Whether you're looking to enjoy a quiet, rural educational experience, or experience the excitement of city life, you may want to begin your college search in Michigan. There are 96 colleges in Michigan, 46 public and 49 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Michigan has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.


If you're looking for a bigger school, consider Michigan State University. Located in East Lansing, it's a great place to get an education while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. In fact, we couldn't have said it better than Nick R., an MSU freshman who remarked, "In addition to having a plethora of opportunities to take advantage of on Michigan State University's campus, students have the pleasure of learning in one of the most beautiful environments in the country. I often think the campus is a national park instead of a school because of the acres of trees, small animals, and rivers that go through the already green campus." The university houses about 46,000 students, and notable alumni include the NBA star Magic Johnson and former Michigan Governors James Blanchard and John Engler.


Another big school option is the University of Michigan. Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan boasts highly-ranked undergraduate business and engineering programs and is considered a "Public Ivy," a distinction coined in 1985 bestowed to universities that provide an Ivy League experience at a public school price.


If you love math, science, or technology, consider applying to Lawrence Technological University in Southfield. Southfield is a small city, and the campus itself is home to about 4,250 students, making it a medium-sized Michigan college. Notable alumni include Ronald Knockeart, inventor of the laser bar-code scanner.


Other Michigan colleges include Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, and many, many more.
