Alma College is a four-year, residential, liberal arts college located in the heart of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.
A deep regard for students as individuals is fundamental to the Alma education, with small class sizes and many opportunities for one-on-one collaboration with dedicated faculty. Our academic programs encourage students to put the ideas and theories they discuss in the classroom to work in real world settings through internships, research fellowships, campus leadership, study abroad programs, and service to others.
The Alma Commitment: “We pledge to provide you with the experiences and structures that will enable you to be well-prepared upon graduating.”
