The small school atmosphere was what drew me into the college, allowing me to communicate first hand with my professors. This allowed me to excel and learn faster and be more in depth for my classes. I really enjoyed my first year at Adrian college after transferring in, brought out the best in me by being surrounded by excellent staff and students!
I have had an over average experience here at Adrian. Finding my friend group took some time, but once I found people I liked to hang out with, things got better. The teachers here clearly care about their students, and reach out when things seem off. Smaller class sizes make it easier to communicate with teachers and ask questions. I also am on the synchronized skating team, and have had a good season so far. The girls on the team are very nice, and it has been nice to train and compete with them. So far, the worst thing about going to school here has been the surrounding town. There isn't much to do off campus, and the only malls or shopping scenes are an hour or more away. Adrian has a cute downtown, but as someone who grew up in Philadelphia, it was a little underwhelming coming here. Overall, if you're from Michigan, or used to a small town setting, and want to go to a smaller school, Adrian College is right for you.
Adrian College has so many career choices. I’ve learned of many school organizations. There’s definitely something for everyone to get involved and meet more people. Adrian Colleges facilities are extremely nice, clean, and feels like a small town in itself. Many places to grab a bite to eat or hang out with friends. The instructors are welcoming and kind. I’m really glad I chose Adrian college for my college journey.
