History

The college had its origin as a theological institute founded by Wesleyan Methodists at Leoni, Michigan in 1845. This institution merged with Leoni Seminary, another Methodist school, in 1855 to form Michigan Union College. In 1859, that institution closed and assets were transferred to Adrian to establish Adrian College. The college was chartered by the Michigan Legislature on March 28, 1859, under the first President of the College, abolitionist Asa Mahan. In the early stages of the American Civil War the College volunteered itself as a base for the formation of Michigan regiments for the Union side. The current North Hall building sits on the site of the former base camp for these soldiers.

Renaissance Project

On June 30, 2005, Stanley P. Caine retired after 16 years as president of Adrian College. The next day, Jeffrey Docking became Adrian College's 17th president, after serving as a Vice President at Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania. Since arriving at Adrian, Docking has introduced many plans to revitalize Adrian College and its campus, including construction of new buildings, renovation of old ones, and programs related to athletics such as the construction of a new ice arena. Many of these initiatives are grouped under his "Renaissance Project".[1] is the 181st day of the year (182nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Docking's initiatives and related changes, however, have caused some controversy. The decision to introduce mandatory four-year residency for all students "to raise funds" is a departure from previous policies.[2] At a town hall-style meeting between students and administration concerning the drastic changes in housing policy, the Dean of Student Life declared that the new policy was essential because Adrian College had been in imminent danger of closing, thus rendering any Adrian degree "worthless."[3] In contrast, deposits for fall, 2007 exceeded 550 by July, 2007.
