Close-knit Campus in Energetic Community
WMU-Cooley's Grand Rapids campus is located in the city's Heartside District, a dynamic urban neighborhood that boasts a thriving business sector, lively arts and entertainment culture, and a pedestrian-friendly environment with housing, parking, restaurants, and more, all nearby. The five-story, loft-look brick building features natural light throughout, including the library, study areas, classrooms, and large student lounge; while vintage architecture blends with modern technology to produce a pleasant and up-to-date learning environment. An adjacent parking structure, nearby surface lot, and street parking provide convenience for students commuting to class.
Thriving Community for Arts, Entertainment and Relaxation
Grand Rapids is the second-largest city in Michigan. It boasts many destination attractions, such as the internationally acclaimed Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, and ArtPrize, a 19-day annual global art competition that attracts over 200,000 visitors to the city each fall. Music also plays a huge role in the arts energy in Grand Rapids, including such staples as the GRandJazz Fest in August, the Monday night Jazz in the Park series, the Wednesday night Blues Concert Series and the Meijer Gardens music series all summer long. In addition, the campus is located only 40 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan, allowing for convenient day trips and get-away weekends.
