I have had a blast at Adrian College so far! There isn't much more that I could ask for in a college. The people here are kind, outgoing, and friendly. Because of the size, you can have more interactions with teachers, and you can't go anywhere without recognizing someone. The school is all about making sure that it's students are getting what they need and everyone wants you to succeed. My only wish is that there was a sustainable agriculture program--or any ag program for that matter.

I have been at Adrian college for my first semester of college and honestly it has been one of the best times of my life! While there, I felt this energy from other students that you can't find in high school, Adrian college felt more like a community than a college. Every student there helps one another, you'll never be alone either because you'll make so many friends while on campus. Now, if you are the type of person that likes to focus on your academics and don't like to socialize a lot, then you're out of luck because people here are so nice and kind. The food here is also really good, the staff there always makes sure there is different flavors everyday. I love this college and I hope I described my emotions in this essay to you.
Adrian College has been a rather interesting experience. Yes it is fairly diverse, and the people on campus are amazing. My only confusion comes from the fact that we pay such a significant amount of money for a school that has dorms that barely have working bathrooms. In the hall that I live in, the bathrooms are closed at least 2 times a week. The school ends up accepting more students that what they can house so some people end up in the worst situations, and many end up leaving. There is not much to do on campus, but we all find something to do. I think renovations are in order for many of the dorms. They focused on remodeling the premium housing so people would spend more money to live there.
