4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are small but are in great condition for everyone. The teams are supportive of each other work as a family to meet their success. The athletic trainers care about their athletes as much as the coaches do. It is a serious and yet loving atmosphere of team dynamics.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Albion College has an extremely welcoming and enthusiastic atmosphere. The faculty and staff are anxious to help you become a success! The beautiful campus is home to the most friendly and ambitious people I have ever met.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Everyone on campus feels very safe at any hour of the day because our campus safety runs 24/7.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors acknowledge who you are as a student and care about you passing the class. They are always open to meeting and are very helpful with anything you're struggling with. The courses are not too easy but just enough to where you have to think and participate in class. The class size is perfect for me because you are not just a number you are a person and you are able to get the one on one help with a professor.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Graduating from a liberal arts college gives you a wide range of options for internships and jobs after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For me the dorms are just the right size, I don't own enough stuff to fill my room. I don't like how Wesley is so far from everything else on campus, it makes walking back and forth a hassle. Living in an all freshman dorm make it easier to hang out with your friends without having to walk to another building.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of our campus. I enjoy hearing about what they do for the community and how they help people in need. They always have fundraising events and all the proceeds go to the community or the organization that they are trying to help. I wish I was able to join a sorority but I think they cost too much money.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Being apart of the Volleyball team has made such a big impact on my life because it opened up more opportunities to make friends and to play the sport of my dreams in college. Everyone on the team gives 100% on and off the court which is something I didn't have in high school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Coming from a small high school Albion College is a great fit for me. The professors are very helpful and care about your education. My favorite part about being at Albion is everything is so close so you never have very far to walk. We always have hands on activities for students and weekly events put on by our union board so there is always something to do. If I had to chose a college all over again I would still pick Albion because everyone is like one big family and you fit in wherever you go.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is always a campus safety official close by so that you always have help when it is needed and the resources that one can reach out to are very significant. They are always there for you to help with anything you may need.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like I said before this is a great experience at Albion College. It is like you're at home. It is literally your home away from home and I couldn't imagine going back to any campus and liking it one bit after being here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The College does a great job getting recruiters from all different places and jobs around the nation and world to come in and recruit us for positions.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I transferred here from Eastern Michigan University and coming from there to here it felt way more homy and everyone around you wants to know you and be friends in a way. everything is more approachable and everything is in close walking distance.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: They do great things on campus but you have to be liked to get into the one you want to be in.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are great on campus they are very big here on campus along with greek life. Since it is a smaller school a lot of the students play sports.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is one of the best decisions that I have made in the time i have been alive thus far. It is challenging yet is the most fun and exhilarating experience one will ever have.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The frat parties can rival those of a big school. All students are welcome, as long as they behave, so many vistors from large schools like our parties more. There are some bars and breweries near by but no clubs unless you want to drive far.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It builds relationships between students and connects people who you might not see in class. There are 6 different frats that all throw great parties. It's hard to say one frat throws the best because each frat has a different vibe (different music, different lighting, different people that live there or regularly attend their parties). This means you'll probably grow to have a favorite frat or two, but that just means the others don't fit your personality.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity. As the diversity levels increase, we see more intolerance, which the school doesn't promote.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Caffeine is the drug of choice on campus. Alcohol is extremely common on weekends, but you won't be excluded if you don't drink. People take adderall a lot around finals/midterms, but other than that the only other drug people do is weed. Hardcore drugs are very uncommon. Date rape drugs are extremely rare too. Most guys at frats actively try to prevent anyone getting drugged. The one instance I'm aware of was because of someone visiting the campus who drugged my friend at a frat. The members of the frat house kicked him out and helped her as much as possible, including checking up even days later to make sure she was doing okay, referred her to counselling and profusely apologized.

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty safe, to the point I'm not worried about getting hurt, but the town is really sketchy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking across campus with a group of friends and generally safe walking across campus alone, both of which during both day and night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've only taken four courses thus far but all of them had teachers who were ready to help students at any time and were very friendly.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Academics are widely known to have high standards and students who graduate with good grades are guaranteed for success.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The longest time it will ever take you to walk to class will be about ten minutes, which is wonderful if you are running late. Everything is kept pretty clean and there aren't any dorms that are just the absolute 'worst'. No matter where you live, it will have decent space and clean bathrooms. Sometimes the electrical outlets are put in awkward spaces, but if you have surge protectors, they're easy to work around regarding organizing your room.

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.
