4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very intelligent and very knowledgeable. They are always willing to give more time to their students if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network is great. I believe the career center could be a little better, but my job prospects after graduation should be pretty good.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. Campus security can always be seen and they provide services for travel on campus if needed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus. This year I am in a large triple room and it has really been a good experience.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have not joined a fraternity but I have participated in some of their events. Greeks are friendly to non-Greeks and vice versa.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not participate on a sports team, but I have attended a lot of sporting events and students on campus support the teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Albright is a great school. The professors are very knowledgeable and are very helpful. Professors take the time to reach out to students and they are always willing to meet with students one on one during their office hours. Campus life is great. People are really friendly and there are so many clubs and activities to get involved with, as well as Greek life. Albright is a small school but it feels like a large family. It is a really good school and I am glad I am an Albrightian.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a wonderful college for those looking for a liberal arts experience. I enjoy working with my professors and feel that every student is treated individually. Though I have issues with the inefficiency of the administration, the poor conditions of housing, and the price of the meal plans, it does appear that the college is currently working to fix at least some of these problems and future students will likely have an even better experience than I did.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career center constantly sends updates about internship and job opportunities. Professors also connect students to contacts, making it easier to get experience in a specific field. When I began working in the library, my boss listened to my career goals and helped me get transferred into the appropriate department. I highly recommend applying for an Albright Creative Research Experience (ACRE) as well, since you will be able to work more closely with professors on a specific topic that interesrs you.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and generally do not have an issue walking around by myself. The campus is open to the community though, and there are local kids and teenagers who will steal things or damage property. Nothing significant has been done to stop these delinquents, even after they broke into a building and stole costumes the week of the play. The strip mall a block from the campus is the site of several crimes, including shootings, and I do not suggest going there at night. There have also been some fights and intruders on campus, but these are handled fairly quickly. Campus Safety is always easy to reach and there is a van that will drive students to certain locations at night so they do not have to walk alone.

Campus Housing: Honestly, I am not fond of cinder blocks and peeling paint or broken tiles. Even if the rooms were not ugly, I could not rate housing very highly. The pipes often break or leak and it takes weeks to fix it. Their solution to one leaking pipe was to remove the ceiling tile it was leading through so that instead it just dripped directly onto students' heads. The buildings will constantly look dirty, no matter how much the cleaning crew works because of the years of grime caked into the carpet. There are mice in almost every single building and the window units break frequently. The lighting in some rooms only reaches half the room. If you live in Albright Court, be prepared for fire alarms going off at all hours because the detectors can be set off by hairspray, singed hair, and steam. This is the one part of Albright I dislike strongly. I suggest looking at one of the apartment complexes behind the school, like Autumn Park or Oak Forest because you will save money and live in a nice building.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: My primary interaction with the Geeks is looking at the t-shirts they make every year because they use interesting fabric. Ask of our Geeks do charity events, like sitting in the pond for twenty-four hours to raise money for the children's hospital. I know some of their parties are classy, prom-style affairs, but most are your standard college party. The Greeks are all friendly to non-Greeks and there is no pressure to join any fraternities or sororities.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Most people pay attention to men's football, basketball, and baseball and not much else. There is a lot of team spirit, but I don't feel like I'm missing anything when I choose not to attend a game. Our fields are used by the local high school as week, which can be annoying when trying to find a place to park on a game night.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Albright College has wonderful professors who try to create mentoring relationships with students. The students themselves are typically friendly and represent a wide variety of types. There are activities for every kind of person: artistic, musical, geeky, social, athletic, socially conscious, etc. I love the school and have had mostly positive experiences. The only time I had a professor (who was an adjunct) who seemed disinterested in his classes and failed to uphold the standards of the school, it was taken care of and he was not invited back the next semester. My biggest complaint would have to be that the administration is disorganized. Departments do not communicate with one another and trying to do anything outside the norm (like take extra classes every semester out skip a year) is a hassle that will have you alternatively running to the deans, president, and registrar or waiting months for a response. This inefficiency also means that buildings are not improved quickly. I moved off campus so that mice and broken plumbing would stop being an issue. However, Albright recently hired new people, including a new president, so the school is trying to ameliorate these conditions.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The only thing that is a draw back for me is the price tag. Since I am a student athlete at my school that knocks it down a bit but there is still a huge chunk left that has me scrambling to make ends meet.

5 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: always hosting workshops and stuff

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: never had a problem with not feeling safe on campus. at night you can always see public safety.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They are very welcoming and friendly but walking around campus you can really tell who is apart of greek life and who is not.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The softball facilities need some work to them. Football and basketball facilities are best of the best.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I could not picture myself anywhere else! Love it!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love it here and the people wouldn't trade it for anything.

5 College Junior
