Detroit Revival Emerges

…[U]pon exploration, signs of the recent Detroit revival emerge — artists snapping up foreclosed homes, a thriving culinary scene, major housing developments, the oft-praised RiverWalk with views across to Windsor, Ontario...and energetic mini-neighborhoods vibrant with commercial, creative and civic activity. -Seth Kugel, The New York Times “This is a period when it's possible to get a glimpse of one of the world's edgiest, most exciting, urban enclaves – a place that is looking inventively and enthusiastically toward the future.” -Jennifer Conlin, The Guardian

Detroit-Proud Since 1927
Marygrove may be a small college, but big things are happening all around us—and as Mustang, you’ll have countless opportunities to contribute to the exciting changes happening in the city of Detroit.

Located in the northwest corridor of the city, our 53-acre wooded campus is a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the city—but close enough that you’ll benefit from the museums, art, culture, and cuisine that our thriving metropolis offers.

In 2017, we’re celebrating our 90th year of education in the city of Detroit. We look forward to you joining us on this incredible journey!

  • Marygrove’s partnership with Mayor Mike Duggan has helped revitalize a 16-block area right here in our own backyard
  • Thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kresge Foundation, and our Patronicity supporters Marygrove transformed the corner of McNichols and Wyoming into a community gathering space highlighting a sculpture by Kresge Eminent Artist, Charles McGee
  • In collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Stephen Henderson, we’re transforming the writer’s once-blighted childhood home into a community literary center
