“What I love most about Albion is the small class sizes. They are more personal and provide a better learning environment. This enviroment is much like the office environments I was involved in where there are lots of interoffice interaction and communication. I also appreciate how the professors make time for students whenever it is needed, whether it is classtime or not."
