Life in the Sault

Life in the Sault

Sault Ste. Marie Michigan, established in 1668, is home to over 13,500 people who reside in the Upper Peninsula. Often referred to as ‘The Sault’, Sault Ste. Marie is the oldest city in Michigan and among one of the oldest cities in the United States. The Sault provides four beautiful seasons to enjoy, along with breathtaking scenery at every turn.


Sault Ste. Marie offers students a home away from home experience. The university is located on a 115-acre campus with a breathtaking view of the international bridge. This area, during World War II, was the site of the historic Fort Brady, which provided housing for over 20,000 troops. These historical landmarks continue to stand on campus today and have been renovated to accommodate many of our students.
