A robin, an apple blossom, and a special type of dirt may seem like they have no connection, but they're actually all Michigan state symbols. Residents of Michigan - they're called 'Michiganders' - call their state the "Great Lakes State," because it borders lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie.
These lakes make for excellent sightseeing and vacation opportunities, so you'll definitely want to make plans to visit when you're not studying. The state motto pretty much says it all: when translated from the Latin, it means, "If You Seek a Pleasant Peninsula, Look about You."
Michigan's capital is Lansing, and Michigan has many beautiful cities and towns, such artsy Ann Arbor, which is a wonderful college town. Detroit, of course, is where the American car was born. And Michigan even has, yes, an official children's book, called "The Legend of the Sleeping Bear" by Kathy-Jo Wargin and Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen.
