This is a great little college with a beautiful campus. Grocery stores are literally just around the corner so there is no need for a car, just a good, comfy pair of sneakers. Most of the staff is pretty great, too.
Jessica from West Bloomfield, MI
Adrian College is a top-of-the-line school. Although we are D3, our facilities and staff succeed many D2 and D1 schools. AC is a liberal arts institution that prides itself on giving students a well-rounded experience and education.

The small town atmosphere makes me feel at home, no matter how far away home is. Athletics and extra curricular groups always make for a fun, busy, and interesting time. I want to look back on college as a great time filled with great people, and Adrian will allow that to happen.
Abby from Tipton, MI
Adrian College is balance of peace and excitement; privacy and community; and academics and athletics. A gorgeous campus houses an intelligent group of both students and faculty that go the extra distnce in everything they do. Becoming an AC Bulldog means being open and willing to push yourself and others to heights you've never met before, even if you don't realize you're doing it.
