From Albion College

Albion College is a place where new discoveries are made, new understanding is reached, and new ideas thrive. It’s where big problems find big solutions. It’s center stage for academic performers, the front line of innovative thinking. It’s where professors do more than teach. They listen. They inspire. They guide. And they set up their students for success: Albion recently ranked No. 1 in graduate earnings among Michigan small colleges, and 94% of students are in jobs, graduate school or volunteer service within six months of graduation. A 2019 list featured Albion as one of 10 “incredible liberal arts colleges on the rise,” and U.S. News and World Report’s 2020 national ranking highlighted Albion’s First-Year Experience as well as its efforts advancing social mobility.
