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 an Alma education, with small classes and many opportunities for one-on-one collaboration with dedicated faculty. Our academic programs encourage students to put the ideas and theories that they discuss in the classroom to work in real world settings through internships, research fellowships, campus leadership, study abroad or service to others.
Alma College’s mission is to “prepare graduates who think critically, serve generously, lead purposefully and live responsibly as stewards of the world they bequeath to future generations.”
