5 College Freshman

Weather: Alma College is located in the central Michigan and the is always snowing in winter. But, I personally love snow and especially how it makes the beautiful campus look.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at Alma College are very successful. The athletic facilities are all brand new and most of the teams are always competing to in the top of the league ranks. Alma College is a division three school and just added sports like lacrosse and wrestling to the possible sports to be involved here.

3 College Freshman

Majors: There's a lot to major in at Alma, considering it is such a small school. But my best friend from high school didn't come here with me because they don't have pre-med.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Supposedly Greek life is like being part of a whole different community. You get to know so many people and have so much fun.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Biology and the science department in general are very strong at Alma. The work is challenging and the professors are knowledgeable and very helpful. They truly care about their students.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics at Alma are the first and only concern for the college. While other aspects of college life suffer, the academics here are second to none.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Alma is a very bland place, very little variation present.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is available and usually at a reasonable price. However, it does not seem to be worth it to most students.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The campus is so small that weather rarely, if ever, affects how we get around campus. Classes have yet to be cancelled as long as I've been here, but there hasn't been too poor of weather either.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I love this school, and how many different groups there are to get involved in. The friendliness of the professors is amazing and the personable aspect is also. The campus is beautiful in the fall, but this year they have been doing a lot of construction, which has been taking away the beauty of the landscaping.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Haven't really experienced that much diversity at Alma college. It's hard when majority of the students are caucasian, but I do know that there has been attempts to diversify the school.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish they did offer more scholarships, but they still did have a good amount if you had good grades in high school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There is an excellent program for those pursuing the science field. There is also a real human cadaver lab, and an opportunity to go across the globe in the spring. It is very expensive, but if you go for the right reasons, it's totally worth it. It is not a college for everyone, as with any college, but giving it a chance is all I would do if you're debating it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Bathrooms cleaned on a daily basis at 7:00 AM. Dorm rooms neat and cleaned for each new Fall Semester. RAs helpful and friendly.

5 College Senior

Academics: The professors are kind and helpful. They will know you by name and help you on whatever you need.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: North campus has community style bathrooms which are kept clean. South Campus has suit style rooms which need a little updating, but have plenty of space.

5 College Senior

Academics: The Chemistry department is awesome. The best part about the college is the ability to research in the field you are interested in.

5 College Junior

Local Area: The people of Alma are always very nice. I haven't seen a "townie" without a smile on their face.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They offer you a lot of money. If your in any sort of preforming art you will get a scholarship if you try out.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Process Needs Work – Alma doesn't give too many scholarships. It needs to offer more. The financial aid office is great at helping you. However the award letters are always messed up and miscalculated, and our website is always changing and honestly getting worse with every new add on and addition. If the Website is clear and simple with direct links to loan info ect. The whole process would be much easier.

5 College Junior

Majors: I Love Science – Alma College science programs are among the best anywhere. we have hands on experience at early levels not found elsewhere. Your professors are active is getting you to your goals and assisting you in any way possible. You may be battle scared, in debt up to your ears and mentally done after Alma but one thing is for certain. It will have prepared you better than anyone else for whatever field you are in.

3 College Junior

Majors: Not Diverse Enough – Alma college does not pay research students nearly enough. I had a research position as a cancer geneticist and basically got paid minimum wadge. Our tuition is at $42,000 a year and rising. And out financial aid is not the best we could really use more options and further help for students.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Lots of Car Pooling – No buses really or any other way besides car pooling. Don't really need buses though..

5 College Junior

Technology: Macs Everywhere – We have almost every lab completely apple computers

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Could Have Been More Smooth – Financial aid is sometimes hard to deal with but if you talk to the right people it is easy.
