“Make a list of the top things that you want from a college or university. Then visit, visit, visit! Every school is going to tell you that they are great. The better schools are able to prove it.”

In Lloyd’s words:

On the campus environment:

“We have a small campus, and I love that. You can walk from one side to the other in 10 minutes, but after stopping to talk with people along the way, it will probably take you at least 20 minutes.”

On Albion students:

“Our students are passionate about academics, athletics, and their campus organizations. They love what they do and the college they represent.”

Favorite Albion tradition:

“Move-in day. As students arrive on campus, faculty, staff, current students, and even the president of the College are there to help you unload your possessions and direct you to your dorm. It’s pretty cool.”

On faculty-student relationships:

“Albion is a place to learn and grow. The individual attention students receive sets Albion apart.”

Can’t-miss Albion activity:

“We take great pride in our athletics, and it shows. Coaches at Albion care about the development of their students in and out of the classroom. Our student-athletes are academics, volunteers, and mentors.”

In Mandy’s words:

On career preparation:

“You will get a job! Excellent academic preparation—along with internships, study abroad, mentoring, job shadowing, and research—lay a solid foundation for employment.”

Best college search tip:

“Start early! Don’t wait until the last semester of your senior year. Give yourself plenty of time to visit colleges. We’re here to help, so take advantage of that.”

Favorite admission memory:

“Watching the first class of Albion students I recruited walk across the stage at graduation.”

Favorite Albion moment:

“Watching Michael Thomas hit a game-winning three-pointer to beat John Carroll and send Albion to the 2005 sectional finals.”

SoupLet’s stay together. She has a soft spot for Al Green. She’s also the founder of Soup Sundays, when Albion faculty and staff gather for a weekly meal.

“Are you more comfortable in a small classroom setting? Do you thrive when you are given personal attention? Does getting hands on experience really help you understand concepts? If so, Albion is a great place for you.”

In Sarah’s words:

On the campus environment:

“The sense of community at Albion is unmatched and you can feel it from the moment you step on campus. The learning environment is dynamic and so is your life outside the classroom.”

Best college search tip:

“On campus visits, asking your tour guide about everything they are involved in on campus will help you visualize what your life could be like as a student.”

Being part of Albion:
Students always come first. Everyone is working together to ensure that our Britons have the best four years of their life.
