3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Albion isn't real close to any bars or clubs but we definitely know how to throw our own parties.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is extremely difficult to get because of the residency requirement. If you apply and are allowed to move off campus the options aren't bad,

Diversity: Albion is quite open to all types of people and makes everyone feel welcome. It may not be the most diverse campus in the nation but it is definitely accepting of everybody.

Local Atmosphere: The town is cute, but there isn't much to do.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not in greek life, so I can't give my opinion.

Campus Dining: Some days are better than others, but overall good food.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's hard to have variety in a small town.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They try to offer as much aid to students as they can, but it's hard when tuition is continuing to rise and most scholarships are from generous donors.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being an athlete myself, i greatly enjoy participating in sports. The training facilities are not the best ever, but they get the job done.

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of the degree from the school is good.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are parties nearly every weekend, but they aren't the greatest parties ever. It's just something to do in a small town that doesn't offer much else.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not many students live off campus because the town around campus is not very big. It is also a huge hassle to get off-campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't a ton of diversity because the college itself is mostly available to those of the upper middle class and above.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm buildings could be more up to date, but overall, the campus is a great, friendly atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Most programs set high standards, but they make it difficult when trying to get all the paper work done for applying to said programs. They also don't see some of the absurdities of when people apply to certain programs.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is the education program. I have not been fully accepted, but the steps required to get into the program truly prepare one for the teaching profession.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They distribute financial aid to those who need it and students have the ability to re-apply for financial aid if necessary.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic events that take place on campus are a part of student life but it is no where near what a Division 1 campus would consist of. We are all proud to be Albion College Britons and support each other by going to games! Our athletic programs are on the rise and championships are within reach for every program.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: You can always find something to do at Albion. All of the first year students live in the same residence hall so it makes getting to know people very easy. The surrounding area might not allow for the most exciting extracurricular activity but around campus, there are always meetings for clubs, carnivals, concerts, and events going on.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The library is open late every day so you always have time to go there for quiet in order to study. The athletic centers are in need of an update but still usable for those looking to bulk up and increase their cardiovascular endurance. Campus always looks inviting; even in the dead of winter, I find myself looking around at the buildings and stopping in awe of my surroundings.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Albion is run-down town that has little going for it except for a couple restaurants and the college.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our Greek Life is extremely philanthropic. The houses are always putting on charity events and getting involved in the community.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The variety of classes and the professors that teach classes are all phenomenal. We have an average workload and the small class sizes make it easy to receive help when it is needed.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, Albion College is great for a number of reasons. The small campus makes it easy to make friends immediately and meet new people. While living in Albion can be boring at times, making the most of it is sometimes what will leave you with the most memories. There is a sense of community on Albion's campus that is hard to duplicate anywhere else. This isn't to say that everyone gets along, but there is a certain bond between all Albion students.

Albion's liberal arts education is something that also seems to be unique to the College. The professors are approachable, and their excitement for their courses is infectious. Even when you're taking a class that is not related to your major, you appreciate what you learn and are proud of what you've learned in looking back. Beneath the exterior sometimes, Albion is just a down-home friendly kind of place, and a lot of students seek comfort in that and learn to love where they are.
