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.

Albion is an small town with lots to offer. First and foremost Albion College is one of the top major colleges in the country. We are a loving, 'melted pot,' with all different races.
I am actually from Albion and what I would like to see changed in Albion is us having our hospital back better schools and things to do for the children.
