The First-Year Experience



Your first year of college is unlike anything you've experienced before. To help you make the most of it, Albion created the First-Year Experience.

This dynamic program includes Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR), Learning Strategies Workshops, a convocation series, and academic and career planning. At its center is the First-Year Seminar—a targeted course that covers cutting-edge topics and intersects with research or hands-on learning experiences.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Beginning April 17, M-99 (Superior Street) in downtown Albion will be closed from Michigan Avenue to Ash Street for significant upgrades. Please visit our Maps, Directions, and Parking page or the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) website for more information.
