Adrian College has the most awesome communications compared to all the colleges that I considered going to. The Rush Communication center has all of the state of the art equipment. I appreciate having access to this kind of equipment and I look forward to learning how to use all of it during my four years in the program. I really enjoy being on camera the most, I hope one day that i will get a job as a news broadcaster. I am applying for an internship with Channel 7 Action News for this summer. So far I've been able to handle the workload very well. The professor's classes are challenging and interesting. I enjoy being a student at Adrian College!

Food Options to Use With Meal Plans – There are many different plans each student can pick for their own meal plan each year. There is different places around the campus in which you can use the meal plans. There is Richie Dinning Hall; which covers the lunch of the day, along with a grill, breakfast, pasta, soup &amp; salad, and an interantional styles. There is also caine which just holds mainly grill stuff but sells sandwiches and chips on the side. When you get tired of eatting at the two main dinning halls on campus there is other places right there on campus in which you can visit. Using your dinning dollars (or bulldog bucks) there is a Quiznos on campus and a WOW resturant. Quiznos is like any other Quiznos around your own neighborhood but you use the money that is already on your card to pa for the meal. The new WOW resturant is the same way and this is a real resturant of wings and burgers. If you dont want any of these there is a few places off campus that take your bulldog bucks as well; the local dominos and country skillet. The fact that Dominos takes bulldog bucks is great because they will even deliver for you. Country Skillet is like any type of Coney Island. All these are great options and with the help of the school they make it helpful for you to not get bord with any of the options that are here and around campus; while all still getting paid with your plan and none of your own money!

What to Do in AC – Well at Adrian College, you are in the small town of Adrian, but there are three colleges in this small town. You are 30 minutes away from Ann Arbor, and Toledo which both towns have a good mall. However, in Adrian there is the college hotspot called L.A. Cafe aka CAFENASTTTY! There also is a college ice cream spot called the Spotted Cow which has amazing ice cream for cheap and you get a huge serving. Local's in the town tend to be very nice to college students, never really have i had a problem with the locals. The students on the campus, tend to get bored due to there being very little to do in a small town, but the students here are some of the nicest, most caring people i have grown to know. Although, there are a few people who are still stuck in their high school ego, they will soonly transfer due to not being &quot;mr.all star&quot;
