Albion Reviews

I really love Albion Michigan. Albion is a town in which is a small town, that is family oriented. Everyone knows everyone. Albion College is one if the top colleges, in Michigan. One of many things that should be worked on, is, the school district. Getting our high school and middle school back, up and running well, with up-to-date material. Also, people in our community need to be supportive of local stores, in Albion. When someone or something comes in the town and break the tradition of certain things this town has, as a family, it kind of gets people upset. Sometimes change is good, but, not knowing what is going on in the community and the citizens kind of having to go with the flow, is almost,a big deal. Due to the unknown. That is kind of scary, risky, and will have a lot of people wondering. Yet, exciting, and will see if this will be the start of something great or worse. Never know until we see.

It's a small post-industrial town that only survives and has urban redevelopment due to the largest employer, Albion College providing the funds.
Albion is one the older cities in Michigan. Thus they still some cobble stone streets; many of the older homes are maintained. It is a small community also and very vested in its residents. The people are friendly and you will find it to be a very diverse background.
