3 College Sophomore

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

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.

Off-Campus Dining: The was a macdonalds, a taco bell 30 minutes away and then a gas station...

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some decent options that are open late. Mainly the Subway and a sweet Casquerellies, and technically although on campus there is the Eat Shop. all these places take your Albion 1 card, which is your I.D. A bit general, but has all the food you could want. If you have a car or a friend with one, there are also a ton or restaurants that take the card as well in Jackson and Marshall. Also, free movie tickets at the Marshal Theatre!!!!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places to eat off-campus in Albion. There are two Subways, a Bigby, a bar called Charlie's, a Mexican restaurant called La Casa, two Italian restaurants called Cascarelli's and Gina's, a McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Hungry Howie's, a KFC , an Arby's and a good breakfast place called Full Moon. The cool thing is that many of these places take Briton Bucks which is money that can be put on your Albion1Card.

If you want something else there is the town of Marshall 10 minutes to the West and the town of Jackson 15 minutes to the East.

There really are a lot of places to eat off campus, even if you don't have a car or don't want to drive to Jackson or Marshall. Within walking distance, you can grab a burger or pizza at Cascarelli's and Charlie's. If you're in the mood for Mexican, there's Lopez Taco House. All of the places in downtown Albion have great prices and often specials for college students. Surprisingly, there's even a Subway. Farther into town, there's Frosty Dan's (a local favorite that's a must for ice cream lovers), Arby's, Burger King, KFC, and McDonald's.

The places to go in Jackson and Marshall are all pretty standard, with a few exceptions. Schuler's, also in Marshall, might be the sole place to take your parents when they come for a visit. Its food and unique atmosphere are worth the higher prices. Finally, in Jackson, Los Tres Amigos has great Mexican food for a great price, if you can make the trip out there.
