3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: How successful you are after Albion is very circumstantial. If you chose a major with a bad career expectancy and did not perform well, finding a job will be difficult. If you do perform well and stay active on campus, your prospects are very good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Albion College is definitely a safe school. Campus safety offers rides to students at night to and from parties or from classes to dorms. The number of incidents at Albion is amazingly low and the college stresses safety greatly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are a bit older and have some obvious flaws. However, they soon become home and you will find yourself missing them.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at Albion College. Most students are either in a social or non-social fraternity or sorority. Greek life puts on many events through the year that are very successful. Greek housing is currently only available for fraternities but sororities have houses, they just aren't lived in. Everyone is very welcoming of Greek life at Albion and even if you decide not to join Greek life, you will have a more positive college experience thanks to the atmosphere and events created by Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Albion College is not known for its sports per say. The teams are often small, but we are ranked fairly well for our division. I do not participate in sports so I cannot say much about them. However, there are a lot of athletes at Albion and they work hard.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Albion has great Alumni, you will definitely find a job. They want you to succeed and will set you up with internships!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is just like any other college town, don't walk by yourself at night, be smart. I have never felt unsafe here. Campus safety is always available and there are lights all throughout campus if at any point you feel unsafe you can go to and call campus safety at.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Albion does not have the newest dorms, but they are kept up nicely.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think Greek life on this campus is great. If you are looking to get involved in the community, school, and meet new people it is a great option. However, you do not have to join a sorority/fraternity if you do not want to. It is not cliquey at all, and you can still go to Greek events even if you are not Greek!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are great. The football field is very nice, and the inside track just got updated. They are putting in a whole new soccer/lacrosse complex this year and baseball and softball field. The school really cares about athletics and there is alot of school spirit at all sporting events.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school so much, there are a ton of opportunities on and off campus to get involved in. The small classroom sizes are perfect for me. Everyone here is nice and the professors really do care about their students. Coming here was one of the best decisions I have made.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I could do way better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are really nice, and every class is small and inviting.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My only wish is that we could live off campus and not have gender separation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Albion is a fantastic school with lots to offer and a small, close knit community.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Off-Campus partying is not an option because Albion is in the middle of no where. There are not any bar//club/nightlife options. Frats are the party options. They have ok parties, its pretty good for a small school. There are a couple of great parties that happen during the year and a lot of people show up for them ex.highlighter party.

Party Scene: The frats are the party options

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you want to drink you can, if you don't you don't have to. You won't get caught as long as your not being blatantly obvious about it. People have gotten busted for drug use though (cocaine).

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have CamPo (Campus police) and they do a pretty good job, they will be there is you really need them. But, the town is a little sketchy so I would not recommend walking alone late in the night, a couple of people have gotten mugged doing that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Academic is great, professors are nice and they care.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its okish. I think all college dorms are not that great in general. A lot of your dorm experience will just depend on luck. One of my friends got a horrible roommate and her floor is always loud 24/7. My floor is okish, the only loud people are the ones in the dorm next to mine (unfortunately). The roommate I had was pretty good, we were friends. Though, she decided to leave Albion after the first semester.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am just finishing up my Freshman year at Albion and so far I am not that happy here. The professors of great and the small size of the classes makes the learning experience better. Albion College's social environment does not have many options. There are a lot of the same type of people. Plus, due to the college's small size there are not many people in general, giving even fewer options. I know that people either like it at Albion or they don't. I am considering transferring and a few of my friends are too. What is keeping me here is the great scholarship money. They have great financial aid. But, in the end, I don't know if it is worth staying here for 4 years.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's definitely very friendly and not at all rivalrous, the only drawback in my opinion is that sorority women do not get houses to live in which isn't really fair, and they have one pathetic black sorority with like two people in it

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, Albion College is great for a number of reasons. The small campus makes it easy to make friends immediately and meet new people. While living in Albion can be boring at times, making the most of it is sometimes what will leave you with the most memories. There is a sense of community on Albion's campus that is hard to duplicate anywhere else. This isn't to say that everyone gets along, but there is a certain bond between all Albion students.

Albion's liberal arts education is something that also seems to be unique to the College. The professors are approachable, and their excitement for their courses is infectious. Even when you're taking a class that is not related to your major, you appreciate what you learn and are proud of what you've learned in looking back. Beneath the exterior sometimes, Albion is just a down-home friendly kind of place, and a lot of students seek comfort in that and learn to love where they are.
