I first heard about Albion because my high school had a strong connection with Albion. When I began the transferring process I asked my high school college counselor for his opinion and he advised me to check out Albion again. I soon discovered that Albion's admission team was hands down the best out of the other schools I was looking at. Albion's enthusiasm about my potential enrollment, as well as their strong academics and connections, made me chose Albion.
Albion's academics far exceed my previous school’s. I am more academically challenged, and I am given more opportunities for my academic growth.
Albion's campus activities are also extremely different. My previous school offered two on-campus actives per year, where Albion offers at least two activities per week. It has allowed to meet people and have much more fun in college.
I do not have any formal plans after graduation yet. I am working with the Career and Internship Center to search for jobs and internships. In the future I hope to write screenplays for film and television.
I was lucky enough to have an older sister who has transferred from her original college to a new one. Since my sister, and my parents, had gone through the process before, they had a lot of knowledge and were very supportive in my decision to transfer. It was a scary thought to leave a place and friends that I knew, but I was very excited to find a college that was a better fit for me. The hardest part was deciding on where to go, and Albion stood out to me.
I have been very pleasantly surprised with the equestrian program. Equestrian programs have a reputation for being very competitive. Although it is competitive, I haven't felt like certain people get more attention or that I wasn't an important member of the team even though I wasn't the strongest rider. I have really enjoyed my experience and it has been a lot of fun.
