About Flint, MI


Flint is an industrial city located in central Michigan and just an hour drive from Detroit, Lansing and Ann Arbor. It is the original home of several General Motors factors and has a rich history of the American automotive industry. Today, the city’s classic brick streets and scenic architecture resemble the old but bring about the new. Flint’s poor economy has encouraged many new businesses to absorb downtown space to help revitalize the once culturally rich district.

  • University of Michigan Flint

    To the tune of the Flintstones theme:♫ ♬ Flintstones, meet the Flintstones they’re a modern Stone Age family. Attending the University of Michigan they are majoring in history! ♫ ♬

    This family could not wait to be brought out of the Stone Ages and into modern times, so they promptly chiseled their applications for the University of Michigan and turned them in to the admissions office. By some strange stroke of luck, they all got in (including Dino)! An acceptance letter from UM-Flint was like an open invitation to study whatever they wanted, go abroad, take part in important research, become an honors scholar, join one of the 100+ student clubs and organizations, go to the recreation center to work out, and get to know the town of Flint. Fred Flintstone decided to study engineering so he could learn how to make a car that wasn’t powered by his feet. Side note: Did you know that Flint, Michigan is home to General Motors?

    Flintstones in Flint

    Moving out of Bedrock to Flint seemed an obvious choice for the Flintstones just because of the name of the town, duh. When they actually went to Flint, the family found that there were many more reasons to love this town! Because the campus is in downtown, there are plenty of places to eat and shop, right after class. There are also plenty of accessible student-friendly activities like movie theatres, art galleries, museums, etc. The Flintstone family was happy to find that there were also lots of available off-campus apartment complexes, and moving in with the whole fam sure made rent a lot cheaper! You probably don’t want to live with your mom and dad, but finding roommates really can significantly lower the cost of living. Though the Flintstones are on their way to understanding the modern world, they are still largely stuck in the Stone Age. Luckily, our apartment search guides were available to help them learn how to search for their new place, and a tool simple enough for even the most ancient users to understand!

    A Yaba Daba Doo Time!

    Once the Flintstones settled in to their off-campus apartment, they began to wonder what people did for fun on the weekends. Their first stop (upon Fred’s request) was the bowling alley. They then went for some sushi at Sagano Japanese Bistro at 2065 S Linden Rd, and then ended up at a live show at the Machine Shop at 3539 S Dort Hwy. When they got back they found that all their friends were at Churchill’s Food and Spirits at 340 South Saginaw Street! It was a yaba daba doo time!
