I wish there were more housing options. Very few apartments are available and with the lottery choosing system only top seniors are likely to receive them. I wish there were more apartments that had separate bedrooms (not shared) and one person apartment (there is only 2 and they are given to 5th year seniors.) The dorms are okay, they do their job. But I would only consider the newly renovated ones as good because they offer air conditioning and carpet that the other dorms dont. I do not like the housing process, I feel the lottery system does not give everyone a fair chance nor do they consider peoples needs.

The class sizes are small, 30 students max. We do not have Teaching Assistants, professors teach the classes and are more than willing to meet with students when needed or requested. Athletics play a large part in my school, this provides many opportunities to get out and meet people. The school is very nice, buildings are up to date and renovated, staff is generous and understanding, and the students are welcoming and open minded. I enjoy the fact that it is a Christian school and provides weekly services and an on campus minister. The class and major selection is wide. We have majors from foreign languages to event planning. If I had to go back and choose again I would still choose the school I am at, they have helped me grow, not only educationally, but as a person. During welcome week they separated us into groups with new people and helped us sign up for classes, move in to our dorms, go to activities on campus, help familiarize us with the campus, and so much more. I am truly happy with my decision on attending Adrian College.

I lived on campus my first year, which was 2015-2016, I absolutely loved it. Being on campus all the time was so much fun and very convenient. The campus is very small so if I was running late to a class I did not have to worry too much because I was able to jump out of bed and be in my classroom within 5-10 minutes. The social atmosphere is was really makes on campus living worth the while. Everyone knows everyone and you are able to see your friends almost every time you go out for a walk, this helps build fantastic, life-long relationships. The worst part about living on campus is that the dorms are a little outdated and tend to get extremely hot in the fall. I cannot complain too much about this because the sizes of the dorms are larger than average, but there is no air conditioning in most of the housing options.
