Favorite thing about Albion and why: My favorite thing about Albion is the close relationships I've developed with the professors. Having the same professor multiple times with small class sizes really allows them to get to know you and thus be able to provide assistance and support much better than a professor at a large university would be able to.
Something I know that that I wish I had known as a First Year: The biggest thing that I wish I had realized as an incoming student was that everyone in college has been an incoming freshman. It sounds really obvious, but I think that a lot of people are nervous about going to college, especially if no one else they know is attending that college. Overall, the whole concept of college can be daunting. You have harder classes, a new living arrangement, and you have to make new friends and figure everything out all at once. I wish that I had realized, though, that everyone experiences this, and that people are either going through the same thing as you or have already done it- in which case they are really friendly and sympathetic to all of the new things faced by incoming freshman, and most importantly are willing to help in whatever way they can.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why: If I could have once superpower, it would be to breathe underwater. I would choose this because I absolutely love the ocean and am really a fish at heart.
