Being an athlete myself, I would say Sprankel-Sprandle Stadium is the nicest in the MIAA. On top of that there are 3 full soccer fields, a full eight lane track,a baseball diamond and softball diamond. There is an indoor tennis centre and I believe four outdoor tennis courts. The Dow has a four lane track and three divisible multi-sport courts. The Dow also has two squash courts, a medium sized weight room, pool and the cardio fishbowl. The fishbowl has many treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and steppers. Being on the K-Zoo river Albion has kayaks and canoes available to students. Albion is also nationally known for their equestrian program. There is a full stable and riding centre just a mile north of the school. Albion is also privileged with a great Athletic Training program and centre where you can go in for PT or injuries. When it comes to school spirit I would say there is a great portion of the student body who will go to the sports games. If you are not into intercollegiate sports, there are also IM sports that run throughout the year ranging from flag football to wally-ball. Many of the intercollegiate sport teams are rebuilding, headed with great coaches. GO BRITS!

My first year was alright, but my second year was way better with an expected awesome third year. The thing is, you have to talk to the people working at the dining hall. Once I did and my friends and acquaintances soon followed, we saw major changes. More vegetarian options, and options in general. Sometimes they cook phenomenally as well. It's a dining hall, so yes there has been some yucky food, but they keep trying and actually take input, and even work closely to out student senate and other representatives and general students to get the word on what's good and what's not. most importantly , they have the BEST BREAKFASTS EVER!

At Albion, 60% of the campus is involved in Greek life. The main focus of the fraternities and sororities is community service. Their philanthropy events are the biggest events on campus and are attended by both Greeks and non-Greeks. There is no real tension between Greeks and non-Greeks, they still intermingle and are friends. Many people use Greek Life to meet people, get involved with the community and campus. Students also find life-long friends through Greek life; it changes their lives for the better!
