The sense of community is great! However, the cost to attended continues to increase and the new 4-year on-campus residency policy does not help the financial stress that I am taking on. Additionally, many buildings on campus need to be renovated and the food served in the dining hall is often undercooked. I have hope that the new President will be able to make improvements, but, as of now, the only redeeming qualities of the school are the quality of education I feel I am receiving and my own involvement on campus.

My overall experience with Albright College has been a good one so far. The professors are very committed to making sure their students receive exactly what they need so that they can flourish in classroom settings. The college has plenty of resources that give students the opportunity to strengthen themselves academically. The freshman dorms are as expected, typical dorm styles with a shared bathroom for the entire floor. The cafe food is not that great, but it has it's good days. Albright has plenty of different ways for students to excel. The only downfall about this school is it is extremely expensive for out of state students. It is very hard for students to find grants and scholarships, if the school was more affordable then it would be so much better.
Wow, this school is absolutely terrible. I am currently a freshman and I am apart of the fashion program. The professors are very backwards and have no sense of creativity at all. If you are any type of art ESPECIALLY if you are a fashion major do NOT attend this school. While I did love the culture I was able to enrich myself in, the education you are paying so much money for is NOT worth it. This school lures students in with humongous scholarships but when they have the I currently live in Krause hall in the basement and it is absolutely disgusting, when the janitors clean the restrooms they do not actually clean they rub the dirt around and call it cleaning. The showers are also disgusting FLIES COME UP FROM THE DRAINS......FLIES!!!! While the dorm halls are absolutely disgusting the academics are just as terrible.
