Adrian College traces its roots to a theological institute established in 1845. Founded by the Wesleyan Methodists, this institute merged with Leoni Seminary in 1855 to form the Michigan Union College. However, it was closed in 1859, and its assets were used to create Adrian College. On March 28, 1859, Adrian College was officially chartered by the Michigan Legislature. It currently occupies a 100-acre campus in Adrian, Michigan.
Adrian College offers more than 40 majors and several pre-professional programs. Courses are available in accounting and business, art and design, sciences, communication arts, interior design, modern languages and cultures, sociology, criminal justice, and theater.
The sports teams of Adrian College, nicknamed the Bulldogs, participate in baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, golf, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, synchronized skating, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. The Bulldogs compete in the NCAA Division III.
