4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are always more than willing to help students when they need it. There are always study table happening for the math courses and the English department has a writing center that students can use for free to get help with their papers.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It is Michigan so the weather is indecisive. There is quite a bit of rain, which was surprising to me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: We have unlimited meal passes and the cafeteria is buffet style. The food is not always the greatest quality and although the company tries to stay healthy, flavor often is lacking. For late night options, we have one eatery open until midnight and they serve a large variety of food that has always been great quality.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For as old as the college is, the campus does not show it. The residence halls and academic halls are all kept up and provide a nice space to live and learn.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The student body is given an abundance of information regarding the effects of drug usage. We are able to keep ourselves away from this scene if we choose to do so.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are a large number of computers available to students in the residence halls, library, and in other buildings on campus. The wireless network is unreliable and slow. I have more problems when I use the internet for entertainment purposes rather than when I am doing homework and research.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus started an initiative to ensure that diversity is accepted and no one is negative toward those who are a member of a minority on campus.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: There are not as many rooming options as bigger colleges.

4 College Student

Facilities: There are lots of clubs and people are very friendly.

4 College Student

Facilities: It has a stress free zone during finals.

Campus Strictness: Very strict, you have no chance of getting away with anything or being about to state your case. They'll think your guilty no matter what, and fine you an obscene amount of money.

Campus Housing: Old, out of date. Either too hot or too cold. Small living, with out of date appliances. Very poor.

Off-Campus Housing: You aren't allowed to live off campus. Albion's way of making sure you keep paying room and board.

Computers: The internet at Albion is close to awful. Some of the worst connection you'll find at a school. Near impossible to get anything done because everyone is on.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Not the best experience I've had, rather poor. I wish I chose a different school. Quite a large amount of cons compared to most schools.

Greek Life: About half the campus is Greek. The fraternities have houses they have to live in but the sororities do not. The big parties are always at the frats. I'm currently pledging a sorority and I love it.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's not much variety; there's a McDonalds, KFC, and Pizza Hut in town. There's Cascarelli's, which is a big favorite because they have the best pizza and breadsticks.

Scholarships: Albion is really expensive so almost everyone gets some form of financial aid. I'm having trouble paying my bill so I've been trying to get help from the FA office and they haven't been that much help.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Frat parties are the main thing. There's usually something every weekend. There aren't any nearby clubs, and there's only a few bars.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health Services staff is really good, but the hours are inconvenient. Campus Safety is okay, not a big deal.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking is very common, but I know a number of people that don't drink and still have a lot of fun at parties. No one will make you feel bad about it. The only drug that is common on campus is weed, and again, it's totally your choice.

Local Atmosphere: Albion is tiny town with a few restaurants. The locals aren't huge fans of college kids, but be nice to them and you'll have no problems. You can always go into Jackson, about 20 minutes away, for tons of food options and shopping.

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.
