EUGENE, Ore., April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 25 Best Colleges in Michigan for 2017.
Michigan is perhaps best known for being home to the Motor City, but the state's high-powered colleges and universities can match Detroit for their finely tuned performance. Home to almost 100 colleges, including eight research universities, Michigan is a highly-favored destination for prospective college students, be they in-state, out-of-state, or even international.
"While the Great Recession hit Michigan's—and especially Detroit's—economy pretty hard, the state is most definitely on the rebound," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "This, along with the bevy of other successful industries like high-tech, research and development, agriculture, and transportation, mean that the job prospects for college graduates are quite good. Your job after college might seem like a distant concern, but in four or five years, you'll be thanking your past self for considering it now."
College Choice developed its list by looking at academic quality along with return on investment—the differential between tuition costs and average early career earnings.
The ranking for the 25 Best Colleges in Michigan finds University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in the top spot. Michigan State University is in second, and Kalamazoo College rounds out the top three.
The entire ranking, listed in alphabetical order, is as follows:
Central Michigan University
Eastern Michigan University
Grand Valley State University
Lawrence Technological University
Michigan State University
Michigan Technological University
Siena Heights University
Spring Arbor University
University of Detroit Mercy
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
University of Michigan-Dearborn
Wayne State University
