Alma College Reviews
Alma is a great place to come to school! Although it is small in size, there is a truly unique communal energy on campus, while still getting the college experience. The administration and faculty really care about your education, and because of the small class sizes, your professors honestly notice and appreciate your hard work. There are SO many on-campus clubs and organizations to choose from, it is easy to make Alma feel like home!
The campus is a very warm and welcoming place. The community is small, but that is what makes it so great. Professors work hard to make sure that students get any extra care they might need, and love watching their students succeed. While it is a small campus, there is plenty to do, and always something going on. I’m so glad that I ended up in such a great place!
Alma College is great! There is a small, connected campus, and class sizes are very small and the professors are awesome.
