Adrian College Reviews

If you are looking for a small town with small class sizes and great academics, Adrian is the one for you. With the small class room sizes, you are able to not develop close relations to your peers, but your professors as well. A professor-student relationship is crucial not only in the learning process, but even future academic adventures outside of Adrian. The professors are more than willing to sit down with you and break it down, piece by piece. You are not just another nameless face, you are you. Being a liberal arts college, distributions are a requirement. Though they may be an annoyance at first, they become well-rounded student shaping machines. Through these classes, you are able to educate your self of the other perceptions, cultures, and ideas along with the synthesis of your own. Though the social scene is somewhat lacking, Adrian College makes up for it in its application of the Arts and Sciences.

The professors are what make Adrian College special. Although there are definitely bad professors, the vast majority are sincerely interested in their students and want to be great teachers. The rest of the school is pretty average. the majority of students play sports and the administration put sports above academics. You're required to live on campus all four years and have a meal plan. The food is terrible and you'll quickly get tired of living in the dorms. Many students go home on the weekend and there's not a lot to do.
Adrian College focuses heavily on athletics so if you're wanting to play a sport this is the place for you. The campus is beautiful and very well taken care. The professors are always willing to help one-on-one and you will build wonderful relationships with them as mentors. Most of the buildings and dorms need renovated but these are being done on a cycle if you can stand a couple months of being less than comfortable from no AC in some of the dorms then you'll be just fine.
