U-M and Ann Arbor
Students at Ross are part of a vibrant community that extends beyond our walls to the University of Michigan and the city of Ann Arbor.
The University of Michigan
The University of Michigan’s commitment to excellence in teaching and research attracts global leaders in all fields. As a result, the University perennially boasts top-10 programs in disciplines ranging from engineering and medicine to law and public policy. The University of Michigan is a brand known worldwide, meaning you’ll learn from and with the best.
Ann Arbor is a city that is both intellectually robust and economically resilient. Twenty percent of Ann Arbor residents speak a language other than English at home, and 16 percent were born outside the U.S.
The city offers restaurants for every budget and taste, music for lovers of concertos and garage bands, and pleasures for fans of both sports and the arts. It doesn’t take long to realize that Ann Arbor naturally melds high culture and popular culture.
Public transportation is accessible and often free for students. Several area attractions are within walking distance of campus, and Detroit Metro Airport is about 30 minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.
"It’s not just the throngs of University of Michigan students dressed in maize and blue singing 'Hail to the Victors' that makes Ann Arbor the ultimate college town. It is the urban sophistication … the sheer energy and the abundance of cultural opportunities."
