Location info of Eastern Michigan University

Michigan’s location is a selling point in itself: it is situated in Midwest America, on the border with Canada and four out of five Great Lakes. This means it has long, uninterrupted freshwater coastline, along with over 11,000 smaller inland lakes and vast forests.

  • High student population: Michigan has a lot of college towns, so plenty of students to make friends with. In Ann Arbor, ranked the 2nd best college town in America, there are 59,000 of them during term-time. That’s roughly 50% of the town!
  • Low cost of living: Michigan has below-average living costs for the US, and is the cheapest Midwestern state to live in. That means you get an American college education for less.
  • Urban development: the city has had some financial investment and graduate job creation is rising quickly.
