Why did you choose Albion?
I visited Albion during the final months of my senior year because my sister-in-law recommended I check it out before I made my decision. At the time, I was absolutely certain I was attending another school. After going on tour and having personal conversations with professors, I reconsidered my previous decision. I felt like my fit was Albion.
What is your best Albion memory or experience?
My first year at Albion was the best by far. The day I moved in, a fellow freshman began playing a fiddle in my hallway, which began an all-out dance contest. Overall, the community and friendships built in Wesley Hall are ones I will never forget.
What are your future plans?
I plan to attend graduate school for psychology, biology, or neuroscience.
How have financial aid and scholarships helped you?
Financial aid and scholarships definitely guided my decision when choosing a college. Thankfully, Albion’s generous assistance allowed me to attend. I never thought it was possible to have the best of both worlds: a great college and financial aid.
How would you finish this sentence: "Because you give to Albion, I'm able to…
…meet amazing people, receive an infinite amount of assistance, and learn emotional, intellectual, and interpersonal skills that I will hold onto for the rest of my life.
