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.

Albright College is a private school with a lot of potentials to educate its students and offer them a great college experience, however, the debt of the school and lack of funding is reflected in every aspect of the college. The dorms are old and decaying, new dorms are fire hazards and set off fire alarms frequently, the dining hall supplies very few options and undercooked proteins, the classrooms lack markers and desks and the administration is never aware of how much the students dislike the school. The school promises to be the safest campus in Pennslyvania, however, they do not apply an action to this statement. Several incidents have plagued the school since 2015 and the administration never handles them in the desires of the students.
Albright lures people in with huge financial aid packages, but many people have their financial aid decreased after their freshman year and many scholarships have high GPA requirements (3.5 for mine) that they don't tell you about. Since you are required to live on campus Albright isn't worth the money if that's the deciding factor in choosing this school.

You have to transfer ASAP if you don't like it here because a lot (half of mine) of the credits don't transfer to other schools, which they do on purpose because they have a high transfer rate.

The food is terrible. I lost 10 pounds within the first two months of school because there are limited options and sometimes they run out of food.

The dorms are depressing and my neighbor dosen't have a working lock that still hasn't been fixed (there have been multiple robberies this month)

Most of the "resources" Albright claims to have just lead to dead ends.
