4 College Student

Campus Housing: It's Wonderful! Everyone is friendly and helpful.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know about the off-campus housing because I live in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the Chinese food and recently discovered that the pub is very delicious and cheap.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are very cautious here. The RA's hired know how to do their job and will enforce the rules as need be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a great scholarship from Alma and will always support this school.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I love going out on Friday and Saturday nights to the frat houses. Weather it is for a themed night or open mic night, the dancing and guys are always on point!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think that the food is great! There are always many options and I love the 24 hour salad and cereal bar.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms. The community style is very fitting for me and it is always a great chance to meet new people. My dorm is near everything and I enjoy it all. The housing process I feel is something that could be changed considering that my roommate and I were completely different and she almost had me thrown out for silly accusations.

Scholarships: Though Alma is known as a very expensive school, They are awesome about offering scholarships. After all of the scholarships i have received from Alma, the difference in cost was not as great. If anything Alma was then cheaper than the other colleges i was looking into.

Party Scene: The parties are fun to go out with your friends to go dancing. The party scene is really safe on our campus, no worries of walking back to your dorm at night but ofcourse it is always safer to go out in a group. The fraternities are the best place to go and they are relatively close to the dorms so its not very far of a walk.

Campus Food: We have one main dinning hall and a couple other options. Compared to college cafeteria food ours it actually pretty good. There is alot of options and something for everyone. The people who work the cafeteria is also very nice. If you cant find anything to your liking in the cafeteria there is also the campus convenience store and little restaurant. Food is made to order and comes quickly and give you a place for you and your friends to sit down enjoy a meal and let off a little steam. For those who want more variety you can take a little walk and go to Stucchi's with your friends at the bookstore. This is a restaurant and they have GREAT ice cream and deep fried mac and cheese bites. For the college student on the go, you can make a stop at the DOW cart inside one of the academic buildings to pick up a quick lunch or a snack on your way to classes. The meal plans come with munch money. This is used in place of real dollars and can be used at the campus convenience store, Stucchi's and at a couple resturaunts in the area like the local pizza places that will deliver right to your dorm. you can also stop by Highland Java in the library to pick up a snack and some great coffee products made for you by your fellow students. The coffee is great and they just put in place a delivery system so your coffee will be delivered right to your dorm room door as you are getting ready for class in the morning.

Campus Housing: This college has some great campus life. It has all of the advantages of both a small town and a city. The under classman dorms are a little run down but still nice and comfortable to live in. There is an option for upper classman to move into nicer dorms if they wish on the other side of campus. The social atmosphere is great! Even though it is a small college the atmosphere has its perks. Having a close knit campus allows you to get to know not only your peers well but also the professors. Alma definitely is a family in itself. The housing process is very easy and the faculty that oversees the housing is extremely helpful and willing to make sure that everyone is in a comfortable and safe living environment.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I rated just O.K. because I don't live off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never had any problems with the Administration, everything seems to run smoothly on my end.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have received multiple scholarships from Alma College!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I rated the party scene as O.K. because some parties feel exclusive, and sometimes the parties aren't very social.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I would really like to see more fresh fruit and vegetables, especially at SAGA. I think this would allow for a healthier eating lifestyle, which I think would be a common theme that most students would agree to vote for.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy living in Gelston Hall. The co-ed aspect of our hall allows for lots of socialization and community. Though I feel like our residents don't take as good of care of the hall as they should, I believe that it's a great place to live on campus. I also really enjoy that it is only a 2-3 minute walk from all of my classes.

During the first semester I applied for the open move week, and the process was long and somewhat difficult. We knew of a vacant room, but were not granted it until after open move week was finished. This was mostly frustrating because my new roommate and I had already told our previous roommates that we were moving out, but then didn't actually move until a few weeks later.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: there is very limited options for housing off campus thats why my roommate and i may be moving to Mt Pleasant next year just because we hate the dorms that much. The only options we have is to stay in the dorms for are sophomore year, you can't move off campus until your a junior or senior and even then the housing options are pretty limited compared to other colleges.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at our school is kind of going down hill. The athletic director got fired, and our football team just went 2-8 with winning the first 2 games in the first 3 weeks of the season. I think that this school needs new coaches in mostly the mens sports not so much the woman's sports they seem to be doing just fine. This school has some pretty smart people at it, i think what is coming to the school with the athletic director being fired may be the best thing thats happen to the sports program in a long time.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you live off campus you lose some scholarship money.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There is one downtown area with local shops that are fun to look around in but thats pretty much it. Alma is a small town.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the buildings have mold in them as much as they try to hide it and some have water heater issues from time to time. All the buildings are close to the academic buildings which is nice.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is average, there are a few small family owned places but the rest are fast food.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't attend the parties, there are other events that take place on weekends to go to instead.
