Established by Edward B. Fiske, former education editor of The New York Times, the Fiske Guide provides detailed information on 322 colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. It includes both objective and subjective information on the strengths and weaknesses of each institution’s academics, social life and overall quality of life. Now in its 34th edition, it is considered one of the best independent college guides available.

The guide says Albion “attracts an ambitious, involved group of students,” and touts the College for “top-notch academic and career counseling,” adding that “low student/faculty ratios keep students on track and motivated.”

Fiske also notes the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service and the Carl A. Gerstacker Institute for Business and Management, as well as the new Davis Athletic Complex, reimagined Munger Place living-learning community and expansion of the Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center.

Albion was also included again in Money magazine’s annual listing of “Best Colleges for Your Money,” which ranks 711 colleges and universities on 27 factors in the categories of the quality of educational quality, affordability and alumni success.
