“When considering Albion, I would say Albion College graduates are CREATORS! Yes, we have top Doctors, Accountants, and Lawyers, but every college can say that. What sets our graduates apart is that they aren’t just knowledgeable of their profession, they can speak on numerous topics.”

On supporting Albion students:

“We still keep in touch with our students while they are on campus. We go out and support our students at games, presentations and events. We help our students reach their goals”
