Land-grant university Confidence: 87% Arrow up

A land-grant university (also called land-grant college or land-grant institution) is an institution of higher education in the United States designated by a state to receive the benefits of the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890.

Michigan State University Confidence: 87% Arrow up

Michigan State University (MSU) is a public research university in East Lansing, Michigan, United States.

MSU was founded in 1855 and served as a model for land-grant universities later created under the Morrill Act of 1862.

The university was founded as the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan, one of the country's first institutions of higher education to teach scientific agriculture.

After the introduction of the Morrill Act, the college became coeducational and expanded its curriculum beyond agriculture.

Today, MSU is one of the largest universities in the United States (in terms of enrollment) and has approximately 540,000 living alumni worldwide.

Residential college Confidence: 76% Arrow up

A residential college is an organisational pattern for a division of a university that places academic activity in a community setting of students and faculty, usually at a residence and with shared meals, the college having a degree of autonomy and a federated relationship with the overall university.

The term residential college is also used to describe a variety of other patterns, ranging from a dormitory with some academic programming, to continuing education programs for adults lasting a few days.

In some parts of the world it simply refers to any organized on-campus housing, an example being University of Malaya.
