Albright College Reviews
Unfortunately my opinion is slightly biased in regards to the experience with my college, while I have been enjoying the experience itself, there were some features of the college that were missing due to construction, the library was not accessible for the entirety of my first semester, which means its resources weren't readily accessible for me. There were alternatives that were useful such as computer labs and etc. Besides the lack of library access the professors at this university are all pleasant to be taught under, and the introduction to college life was smooth, I wasn't overwhelmed immediately and any time I felt like I was getting close to being overwhelmed I had easy access to help that would support me and show me what I can do to improve my situation. The small campus was also a bonus, it allowed me to make deeper connections and everything felt more personal, I felt like a person instead of a number. There were some issues with papers and scholarships that got resolved.
It is a rural area that you may need to take uber all the time as there are limited public transportation, it is so expensive for college student to go there without corresponding professionalism and qualities of education. I only appreciate the biology and chemistry department as there are nice and efficient professors there. However, the other departments like Computer Science and Physics only have one to two professors in a faculty is not enough and lead to most major classes in Computer Science are always cut out. It does not worth your single penny if you want to focus on your academics except for chemistry or biology. Campus is not safe as the surrounding neighborhood have gangs. Public safety on campus is not very useful and the facilities are old. In my freshman year, my lock of the door was broken so I submitted an request to my RA to send someone to fix it. They did not send someone to fix my door lock until my laptop was stolen. I did not recommend anyone to come.
Albright college was a community. At Albright you not only made friends but you made new additions to your family. This small college holding a class of 30 students per room, was created on creating close bonds between your pears as well as your professors. This led to gaining a personal relationship to be able to have study partners and tutors as classmates not only sharping your skills but theirs as well. Along with this Albright students spent quaultity time with one another through different events the school would hold such as dances, arcades and movie nights. Albright was more than a learning institute but a foundation to make a new family.
