Albion College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
I loved my college! It was small, personal, and challenging. It prepared me for my career that I am now in and started just after graduation, it also gave me the opportunity to meet amazing people, my husband included. It was a wonderful 4 year experience!!!
My college was very small, so the community, courses, and culture were very tight-knit and interconnected. Initially I did not like attending a small liberal arts college for this very reason, and I thought that I was missing out on a larger college experience with more opportunities and more anonymity. Further into my college experience I realized I was grateful for a community in which I was known and knew many others. I was part of Greek life and that became a major, albeit temporary part of my identity. I participated in varsity college sports as well as IM leagues and produced many friendships and fond memories through these experiences. I also developed mentor-type relationships with teachers and coaches and even older students (often "brothers") who kept me grounded and helped guide many of my long-term plans. My school became a part of my identity and for four years I even thought of myself as part of the school's identity. When I walked across campus, raced with the school colors on my jersey, or boozed on the porch of my fraternity I was one of the characters living in and shaping the microcosm around me and I felt that my purpose exceeded merely academic pursuits. My small liberal arts college experience prepared me for a larger university experience in graduate school and nurtured me as I assumed challenges and opportunities that I may have otherwise missed by being lost in the crowd.
I enjoyed the liberal arts atmosphere. I felt that my professors truly cared about my success, and I felt comfortable meeting with them. The class sizes were small, which I liked.
