Academics at Albion are a large part of why the retention rate is so high. Though it may seem frustrating at times to have to take classes outside of your major to complete the liberal arts education, you'll appreciate it looking back. Sometimes, even if you really don't like the subject of a class you're taking, the professor can make you care and want to do well. Of course, sometimes the opposite happens, but professors at Albion are often the best part. On a small campus and with such small class sizes, it is easy to get to know the faculty on a personal level. Most of them are incredibly approachable and will often go to extremes to make sure you're getting the best out of your education at Albion.
Another great part about Albion academics is your adviser. Advisers at Albion are all professors and typically aid students who are majoring in their department. If you are given an adviser you don't like, Albion makes it easy for you to switch. It's all about making sure you're comfortable with the important decisions you're making and the education you're gaining while at the College.
