Albright College was a great fit for me, but there were somethings I believe needs to change with school. I would like the cafeteria to have more of a variety of foods that you can choose from instead of limiting the amount of food to just grill foods and pasta everyday. Sure you have special days were the food is experimented on . I would suggest changing the the quality of food that is served. For example, you can switch the usual penne pasta with a simple lasagna from time to time. Also the classrooms need a change, the classroom models are very old and desks could use an upgrade in the Masters and Teel hall respectfully.

The positive takeaways that sold me was the help and assistance the many professors had and how much the academics really challenged me. I think it's hard to find schools that offer these standards and I am truly impressed on how the school dedicates there time to these standards.
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.
Most of the classes are great and the professors generally work with you to ensure you succeed. Make sure you find a good advisor and you should not have any trouble graduating on time in your preferred path. However, the administration does not communicate between departments and that makes a lot of things very difficult. The food is overpriced and not very good (but it is Aramark, so it is the same food you will find at most colleges) and the dorms are not cleaned thoroughly. There are mice in almost every building. No matter what kind of person you are, there is a group, club, or activity for you.
