I am only in my second semester at Albion College but I absolutely love it. There is a wide variety of majors and programs offered through the college which makes for an extremely diverse campus. The staff are all very friendly and approachable and being a smaller school, students receive a lot of one on one time with their professors. There are also hundreds of clubs and activities to be involved in on campus which makes for a very friendly welcoming environment since everyone knows everyone. Albion College is great and I am excited to see what the next couple years here bring for me!

The math professors are absolutely outstanding and really made my time at Albion a treasure. The atmosphere on campus is extremely liberal and dating a cop made me very uncomfortable on Albion's campus. There is not "religious" orientation on campus either, and you really need to work on your faith life if it is something that means a lot to you.
The education is priceless, but you need to be willing to sacrifice. My first two years there were not many problems. My junior and senior year were when politics made the campus crazy.
My experience at Albion College was fantastic. It is a small school which makes it very easy to meet new people and join different clubs. It also makes it easy to meet with your professors. The faculty at Albion College really care about your success, they love when students come to their office hours seeking help or just to talk. The town is very small but the college has been working with the community and more small businesses are opening up.
