About Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is a city with a rich history and an engaging mix of urban living and Midwestern sensibilities. Local historians maintain that Ann Arbor was named for the city founders' wives, both named Ann, and the bountiful forests in the area.

True or not, it certainly makes sense since Ann Arbor has half as many trees as it does people. Fifty-thousand trees live among the city's more than 100,000 permanent residents. There is no better place to study and research the environment than a city where there is one tree for every two people.

For more information on the school and the Ann Arbor community, visit Student Life, or the Uniquely Michigan site.
