Cleary University first brought student living southeastern Michigan in 1883, when it opened as the Cleary School of Penmanship, and later as the Cleary Business College. In the 12 ensuing decades, the institution has expanded into the Washtenaw Campus in Ann Arbor and the Livingston Campus in the city of Howell. In 2002, Cleary officially launched several graduate programs, and became recognized as a university. Today, students who wish to pursue a certificate ABA, BBA or MBA degree at either of the school's campuses may find attractive student housing in their immediate communities.
The appeal to off campus housing in Ann Arbor is the city's large size, about 114,000 residents, as well as the abundance of museums, theaters and festivals that often complement such prominent cities. Though the population of Howell, Michigan, tops out at fewer than 10,000 residents, a Cleary University apartment near the Livingston Campus likewise introduces students to an exciting environment and active community. Throughout the year, the city of Howell celebrates events such as the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest, the "Legend of Sleepy Howell" Halloween celebration, the "Fantasy of Lights" parade in late November, and the Howell Melon Festival in mid-August, which draws nearly 50,000 visitors each year.
Today, about 700 undergraduates and 120 postgraduates enroll at Cleary University and reside in student housing between the two campuses. Undergraduates may work toward a Bachelor's of Business Administration, Bachelor's of Science, Associate in Business Administration or Associate in Applied Science degree in 18 concentrations.
