Overnight Visits

Two students in an Albion College residence hall room.

You're learning all about our academic programs and where you'll go after Albion. But what about while you're here?

An overnight visit is a great way to really get to know a college, to get a true feel for the place. A place that will be your home for much of the next four years.

Albion offers overnight visits Sunday through Thursday during the academic year for prospective students who have started the application process to the College. You'll spend the night in a campus residence hall with a student host. Call the Admission Office at 800/858-6770 to schedule your overnight visit and for additional details.

We look forward to you visiting—and staying—with us!

“Make a list of the top things that you want from a college or university. Then visit, visit, visit! Every school is going to tell you that they are great. The better schools are able to prove it.”

In Lloyd’s words:

On the campus environment:

“We have a small campus, and I love that. You can walk from one side to the other in 10 minutes, but after stopping to talk with people along the way, it will probably take you at least 20 minutes.”

On Albion students:

“Our students are passionate about academics, athletics, and their campus organizations. They love what they do and the college they represent.”

Favorite Albion tradition:

“Move-in day. As students arrive on campus, faculty, staff, current students, and even the president of the College are there to help you unload your possessions and direct you to your dorm. It’s pretty cool.”
