Michigan private colleges are famous for many things: cold winters, football, Greek life, and academic excellence. If any or all of these appeal to you, then you should add Michigan schools, colleges, and universities to your list of places to study. During football season, it is almost impossible to live in the "Wolverine State" and not catch pig skin fever. And for many students, sororities and fraternities are as much a part of the collegiate experience as any college classrooms or term papers ever could be. Although the latter will certainly form a substantial part of your private university career.
