“Albion is great because you know so many of the students and feel right at home but can always meet new people. Albion has given me the knowledge and experience I will use in my career in accounting and also in life.”
Trent was a tax preparer for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and is a member of the Accounting Society. He has had lots of classes with the two accounting professors: John Bedient and John Carlson. Both have been extremely helpful and it is easy to stop by their offices for a chat and to catch up on Albion life.
“I love the atmosphere at Albion, both in and out of the classroom.”
