About Adrian College

Adrian College evolved from a theological institute founded by the Wesleyan Methodists at Leoni, Michigan in 1845. In 1855, the school united with Leoni Seminary, a Methodist Protestant institution, to form Michigan union College. The College relocated to Adrian in 1859.

The College is a four-year, independent coeducational liberal arts college actively affiliated with the United Methodist church. It provides its approximately 1,400 students with more than 35 majors and 50 fields of study, including several pre- professional programs. Among its most popular majors are business administration, communications, human services and education. The degrees offered are: associate of arts, bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of business administration, bachelor of fine arts, bachelor of music and bachelor of music education.

Adrian offers some 50 student organizations, 16 varsity sports (football; volleyball; baseball; softball; men's and women's basketball, soccer, track, cross country, tennis and golf) and an active intramural program which involves about 80 percent of the student body. It also has active art and theatre programs and is the only small college in the state to host a professional symphony orchestra.
