The professors truly do care about their students. Course work can be a lot sometimes but it is college, its supposed to be. There are a lot of different courses available and they encourage you to take a variety of courses to see what you like. Class sizes are a 14:1 ratio, my biggest class I have had so far was about 30. That is why I love this school though, small class sizes!

Although it is a small school, Albion College is a great transition for students. You experience living away from your family and gain a lot of the independence that young adults need in order to succeed in the real world. The campus is also very safe; especially when compared to larger universities. There are many different types of people at Albion despite its small size; so, making friends is very easy. The college is also very good at providing students with entertainment on weekends and events during the weeks - all free of charge. The city of Albion is also small and quiet, but with a lot of history and character. I am not sure what initially drew me to choosing Albion College, it was pretty much a random choice, but I do not regret my decision. When I leave the campus for vacation or to visit friends at other universities I often miss Albion and feel homesick.

Meeting all the staff and faculty at Albion College and getting to know them was hands down the best experience I have had here. From on the phone, to email, to in-person, Albion College staff for there admissions process have been nothing but helpful and want to see you succeed in every way they can. They helped me with scheduling classes in a way that set me up for my major and had awesome health programs that guarantees a future of higher education. I have nothing but nice things to say about Albion College and I look forward to spending my next three years at this outstanding college.
