    I'm a current sophomore at Albion and so far, I have loved my experience. I have a lot of opportunities for research and internships and my professors are always there to help me, no matter what. I know that the people at Albion genuinely cares about me and in my opinion, you won't find a community like it anywhere else. There are tons of activities to do on campus, programs for all kinds of interests, and the professors here take an active role in our education. Plus, there are many scholarship opportunities which made it possible for me to attend. I also like the fact that there are so many organizations to get involved with, like Greek life, music, sports, and other clubs!

    I am finishing up my sophomore year at Albion and I have loved every minute of it. I have had so many opportunities presented to me that I never would have imagined being a part of before Albion. Almost everyone on campus is involved in more than one club, activity, or organization. These give students ways to connect with people they didn't know as well before or to continue friendships that will allow us to have those life long best friends. All of the professors are very willing to work with students one on one, and the professors will actually know your name because class sizes are at most around 35 students. I have had classes as small as 4 students!
    I am finishing up my third and final year at Albion College, and I never imagined it would be so hard to leave this place that became my home away from home. Throughout my time here, my professors invested in me, helping me grow to be the best student I could be as well as helping me plan for what's next. My fellow students were the best friends and support system I have ever had. The Albion environment is so friendly and close-knit, and I am so thankful for my time at Albion!
