Michigan State is in East Lansing. The city is best known for the University and you'll definately run into fellow students in your everyday life around town. The city is about 80% white, but when i was there, it seemed alot less.
University of Michigan is located in Ann Arbor. The city has alot of history behind it, if you care. While it is known for the University, chances are, you wont run into fellow students like you would in East Lansing. The city is about 75% white, but definitely seems alot less.
Personal Opinion: The University of Michigan is one of the best Universities in the U.S., but is more expensive than Michigan State. If you live in state, i would definitely try for University of Michigan. But if you live out of state, or if you want a college "experience" over an extreme academic course, i'd go with Michigan State.
