Favorite thing about Albion and why: The close relationships you can build with your professors. You get to know many of your professors quite well between the small class sizes and their open office hours when you can go visit them and discuss classwork or just chat. Students at large universities will often never develop that relationship which is one of the really cool things that sets Albion College apart.
Something I know that that I wish I had known as a First Year: Sleep is non-negotiable. It's important to get your homework done, socialize with friends, and be involved in campus activities but not at the expense of sleep. I often sacrificed sleep for these other things my first semester at Albion College and it led to a lot of drowsy class time and being way too burned out by the end of the week to do anything on the weekend. I learned to get adequate sleep at night and found even the shortest nap can be wildly refreshing.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why: I have to go with the classic ability to fly. Whenever you see a bird fly by you can't help but still be stung with a bit of jealousy and wonder at what it would be like to soar through the clouds without a care in the world. Plus I'd be dying to find out how close I could get to space.
