Albright College Reviews
Review Albright College
I grew up on Albright's campus, so it was always very special to me. Unfortunately, over the past decade, the administration has been pouring a great deal of money into campus beautification. And while that seems nice, it has come at the expense of the faculty, as they often go unappreciated and have not received pay raises for several years, and the quality of the students admitted into various programs. Furthermore, housing is no longer equipped to handle the number of students now being admitted to the college, which means tight living quarters. I loved my teachers, but I have no respect for the current management of the institution.
Albright College has wonderful professors who try to create mentoring relationships with students. The students themselves are typically friendly and represent a wide variety of types. There are activities for every kind of person: artistic, musical, geeky, social, athletic, socially conscious, etc. I love the school and have had mostly positive experiences. The only time I had a professor (who was an adjunct) who seemed disinterested in his classes and failed to uphold the standards of the school, it was taken care of and he was not invited back the next semester. My biggest complaint would have to be that the administration is disorganized. Departments do not communicate with one another and trying to do anything outside the norm (like take extra classes every semester out skip a year) is a hassle that will have you alternatively running to the deans, president, and registrar or waiting months for a response. This inefficiency also means that buildings are not improved quickly. I moved off campus so that mice and broken plumbing would stop being an issue. However, Albright recently hired new people, including a new president, so the school is trying to ameliorate these conditions.
Albright College, wasn't my top college for a long time while I was in high school. I already lived in Reading and wanted to part away from the city and go to a big state school. It wasn't til a few phone calls and a real visit to Albright that I grasped how great it is there. The moment you get on campus you're embraced by many smiling faces, friendly personalities and you're treated as family. The campus itself is beautifully with their signature red Adirondack chairs spread around the campus. Since being so small of college you actually get to know your teacher and they know you, it has it's perks in the long run(Recommendations). I wouldn't really change anything so far at Albright, it's great school with great people, and I fit in just well.
