Colleges in Michigan

As the only state made up of two peninsulas, Michigan is nicknamed “The Great Lakes State” since it’s bordered by Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and Lake Superior. The southern portion of the state experiences hot summers and cold winters, but the northern half has short, warm summers and can have very cold winters. Colleges in Michigan are mostly in the lower peninsula, all 93 of them minus 2, and include 8 research universities, 17 baccalaureate colleges, and 19 master’s universities. The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor is the oldest, as well as the most selective, institution. The Wolverine State’s top industries are automotives, advanced manufacturing, freshwater technology, and Christmas trees. The most popular places to visit are Mackinac Island, Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
