“Plan a visit to Albion. And when you’re here, ask questions everywhere you go.”

In Heather’s words:

On an Albion education:

“Our students study abroad and intern around the country. In the classroom, Albion students discuss pressing issues and conduct meaningful research with their professors.”

On faculty-student relationships:

“Albion is a place to learn and grow. The individual attention students receive sets Albion apart.”

Can’t-miss Albion activity:

“There are plenty of year-round outdoor activities. The Kalamazoo River, the Nature Center, and Victory Park are all just a short walk away.”

The first thing she tells a prospective student about:
The Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service.

Never Misses: Move-in day.

FootballHer dream destination: Australia.

“We take great pride in our athletics, and it shows. Coaches at Albion care about the development of their students in and out of the classroom. Our student-athletes are academics, volunteers, and mentors.”

In Mandy’s words:

On career preparation:

“You will get a job! Excellent academic preparation—along with internships, study abroad, mentoring, job shadowing, and research—lay a solid foundation for employment.”

Best college search tip:

“Start early! Don’t wait until the last semester of your senior year. Give yourself plenty of time to visit colleges. We’re here to help, so take advantage of that.”

Favorite admission memory:

“Watching the first class of Albion students I recruited walk across the stage at graduation.”

Favorite Albion moment:

“Watching Michael Thomas hit a game-winning three-pointer to beat John Carroll and send Albion to the 2005 sectional finals.”

Where you’ll find her on her day off:
Anywhere near the water. (Did we mention the Kalamazoo River winds right through campus?)

Contact Sarah

“Are you more comfortable in a small classroom setting? Do you thrive when you are given personal attention? Does getting hands on experience really help you understand concepts? If so, Albion is a great place for you.”

In Sarah’s words:

On the campus environment:

“The sense of community at Albion is unmatched and you can feel it from the moment you step on campus. The learning environment is dynamic and so is your life outside the classroom.”

Best college search tip:

“On campus visits, asking your tour guide about everything they are involved in on campus will help you visualize what your life could be like as a student.”

Being part of Albion:
Students always come first. Everyone is working together to ensure that our Britons have the best four years of their life.

Hands making a sign for the letter v. Lifelong Dream: She'd love to learn sign language.
