2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If you are not with a group of people stay indoors after 8. There have been several incidents on my campus were people off the street enter my campus with a gun or knife. There have been break ins to student vehicles, abductions and drop offs of abduction victims at the school. There are several blue lights throughout campus that, if pushed, alert the campus security. However, there have been instances where the security takes well over 10 minutes to arrive. The campus is very small and has roads apart from the city of Albany, so there is no reason for the time delay.As far as the health centers availability to students you would be better off going to an emergency room. A student that has insurance coverage outside of the school can only visit the health center at certain times.

Campus Dining: There is one dining hall on campus that includes 6 places to eat. Not all 6 places are open at once however. There is a salad bar that is only open during the early afternoon, a sub bar that is open from noon until 11 at night, and the rest are open from 7-6. The food is great for the first week, but then everything starts repeating. By the time finals come around the food is horrible (as if the cooks stopped caring) and most students would be better off ordering out. Dinners for holidays are amazing though. For Thanksgiving a Turkey is laid out and carved in front of the students. Included in the meal plan you get off campus flex which allows you to buy food from several places including Chinese, pizza, Chicken Joes, and several others.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: When attending a professional college one would expect to see kind, well dressed, and organized individuals. For the first two years at Albany College of Pharmacy students do not dress that professional, however for the next 4 years it is mandated. Most students or health career oriented, so the social life can be a bit focused on that topic. For the most part students are kind, however, there are some very judgmental individuals and very tight cliques. A lot of the students are very athletic and play inter-mural sports, pick up games, or go to the gym daily.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office was very easy to talk to but, I received little to no money. It depends on income solely.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The overall experience has been horrible. The food is descent but tolerable. The professors are nice and easy to approach. People are very easy to approach but difficult to connect with.The school shows a great deal that they care about the students.
