Our Michigan campus is located in Dowagiac, MI, a quiet country town surrounded by woods, lakes and lots of natural beauty. We were thrilled to have Danish architect Jan Utzon, (son of famous architect Joern Utzon who design the Sidney Oprah House in Australia) team up with us to build our school. The modern school boasts large open rooms with plenty of sunlight and windows incorporating the natural beauty around us. In the center of the school is a large open courtyard for relaxing and eating.

At our Michigan campus you will find a large community garden, bee keeping, a chicken coop and many projects in sustainability happening. Our students live in a large dorm, just a short walk from the school, but spend much of the time in our main building learning, cooking, studying and taking group exercise classes. We have also have trails for long walks in the woods or you can take one of the campus bikes for a long ride down a country road. We even have a few resident dogs if you like animals!

All of our campuses run on a "collective" which means that the staff and students run the school. Everyone cooks, cleans, takes care of the property and makes decisions about financial matters as a group.

Our Michigan campus offers the 18-month Fighting with the Poor program and our students complete their service work in Africa. After the service period students share their experience at festivals, events and public lectures.

The staff and students also assist in local projects in the community as volunteers and travel to Benton Harbor and Detroit to give back to the community. We run a very large clothing recycling program too--with over 500 recycle bins in Michigan. At our school, you will get your hands dirty and keep your minds busy!

Please feel free to come to any of our events or Open Houses to learn more about us. You can always call and schedule a tour anytime. We love visitors!
