Michigan State

Education

Through kindred provisions of law, the university has been finally placed upon a stable basis. At first the farmers were insufficient to set the machinery fairly in motion. The difficulty thus interposed was obviated by a money loan from the State treasury. Then, with a board of regents, a president and a working corps of professors, it entered upon an unexampled career of prosperity. Since the institution has been in active operation, valuable improvements have been introduced; new departments have been erected; and new professorships have been instituted. At present, with its enlarged classical and scientific course, with its full corps of professors on active duty, with its splendid apparatus and varied equipments of easy access, and with its thronging attendance of students, our Michigan University is without a superior in the American Union. But, not content with the brilliant success thus achieved, the people of Michigan, inspired by the educational devotion, and imbued with the tireless energy of the old pioneers, have secured the establishment and successful operation of the State Normal School, for a systematic training of teachers; and the State Agricultural College, with its professors, equipments, and model farm.
