3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: They're are very repetitive in terms of menus. I'm not complaining though, as long they're serving something edible I'll be fine.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I would guess greek life is the same as the rest. I am not aware of any difference between greeks and others at albright

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Just a feeling of family at Albright...Everyone is so friendly and you feel like you belong. Small class sizes make learning easier. My professors are the absolute best.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Albright has helped me so much with funding needed to attend there. It is a private school and not cheap but the trustee grant they offered me was so generous it allowed me to fufill my dream of being a student there...Thanks Albright....

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the Albright campus. I am a freshman and have loved my first four months there. The ground are beautiful. I live in Crowell hall and love my dorm. The libraries and student centers are awesome. Campus activities are always going on all over campus.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Many people say that since Albright is so small there is nothing to do on weekends but it is one of those schools where the clubs and organizations like to have events on weekends and at night that are free or cheap and fun for everyone to come out to. Academically speaking I like the small class sizes and knowing professors and administrators well and having them know you and easy to access if need be. I am a face and not someone who will be lost in the shuffle of all of the people which I think if I went anywhere else I would have been. Also Reading is within 3 hours of many major cities such as New York City, Philadelphia, and many more and trips are organized to many different places every semester or so.
My only real complaint is that the programs are always changing their requirements and sometimes it is hard to keep track of but always ask your advisor(s).

3 College Senior

Academics: I have an interesting major that is a combination of Sociology and Psychology that is called Child and Family Studies, with that being said that can open a lot of doors for networking and job opportunities if you want them. Albright College has a rule that all professors have to still be active in their field in order to receive tenure and in some of the courses I have been able to read what my own professors have published and know what they have done and what some of their students have done. I have had to take some not so interesting classes or discussing things I was not very interested in just for a grade but for the most part it expands on topics I am interested in and forces me to make connections.

3 College Senior

Academics: I came to Albright College because I wanted to be more of a face and not get lost in the shuffle and through my academics I may not be a stand-out grade wise but many professors are willing to work with you in anyway you need but you have to ask. I changed my major and it has helped a great deal because that makes you realize where your passion is and helps fuel class discussions. And for many introduction classes there are several tutors and study groups scheduled to help students do their best and succeed. But you have to ask for help in order to get help!

Off-Campus Housing: Living in Reading is hard but there are a good deal of off campus apartments but really none that are geared more to the college age population of the local colleges including Albright College. They can be very expensive because they are for families but as I have been at the school Albright has been trying to branch out and get houses off campus to keep students close by which in coming years will be beneficial. I do not like living off campus very much but I am learning responsibility and Albright Public Safety is always willing to help me if I need them so use the resources available.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Public safety will drive you to and from campus to the woods apartments, giant, and wawa. They also offer Mall Monday, Target Tuesday, and Walmart Wednesday.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Albright is a pretty small school so the majority of my classes are 25 people or less. This creates a great learning environment. The science building has just been renovated as well. In 2011 Albright was also ranked among the 25 most artistic schools by Newsweek. I participate in three singing groups here and I love them!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a freshman dorm. The rooms are a decent size, but sometimes its a little loud. So, next year I hope to live in the honors dorm if there's enough room. There's free laundry in the basement which saves A LOT of money! My dorm is also very close to campus and I can be at my class in 3 or 4 minutes. It's also easy to switch roommates if you need to, as long as you fill out the paperwork before the deadline.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The Albright cafeteria was just renovated last summer so everything is brand new this year. The meal plans include a certain number of meals per day plus Bonus Bucks. You can spend your Bonus Bucks at Jake's Java which is a little coffee and snack stand in the lounge or in the restaurant downstairs. There are also pizza and Chinese places that deliver to the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Albright offers a shuttle system which takes students to the mall, Target, and Walmart on different days of the week. Grocery stores, CVS, and Wawa are all only a few minutes of walking from campus. Freshmen cannot have cars on campus unless you park on the street.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Quiet. Good Residence assistants and a good, friendly environment .

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers at Albright are very reliable. You can get you work done and not have to worry about anything going wrong because they are well protected by anti-viruses. The printers on campus are nice as well. At times the network can be a pain in the butt however that is only if you move from one place to another and all you have to do is sign back into the wifi.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I gave drug and alcohol a C+ because it is college, you can not expect there not to be parties and drinking. Even though some of the students who don't drink can get annoyed the drinking is controlled rather well.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have our own " sercurity" called public safety their jobs are to keep us as students safe at all times.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The staff his is wonderful they are always around with open arms for anything you need. If you need one on one chats just to have some one to talk to as an adult the staff is very welcoming to that.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is so friendly and awesome . The people here are great people and wonderful to be around.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is so much better then last year the caferia is awesome and the menu is great

5 College Sophomore

Computers: The Technology aspect of Albright is second to none! There are computers everywhere! The school even has it's own unique "apple lab" filled with simply apple computers and things from apple. A personal computer/printer is not a necessity as much as it is a perk at Albright. It's not drastically needed, you can always get to the library and get your work done with relative speed.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Being in a specific program at school gives you a sense of "belonging" per say, for the lack of a better term. You are surrounded by people whom want to see you excel and share your common interests. I enjoyed my time spent at the school personally and I think anyone would. Also, because the school is relatively small, you receive a lot of attention that most students crave for at large institutions. The workload for my concentration, Criminology/Sociology wasn't too bad. I mean of course there were days where i felt as though I was drowning in long and extensive readings that I had to do analysis on but all the same, if one does not procrastinate then it is not that bad at all. You'll have ample time to complete your work.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: When I was enrolled at Albright, as an Criminology major I felt as though my first year was excellent! Although there were some courses that I don't think should have been in place as a requirement for everyone to take as they were simply time consumers and really had absolutely nothing to do with the major concentration.
