Comments: Founded in 1495, the university has a student body of about 5,000. A full curriculum is offered, and includes especially strong offerings in the physical sciences as well as the humanities and social sciences. Fall semester will go beyond Christmas break and end two weeks into January. To attend Fall semester, students can sit for exams/do additional work before the winter break begins on December 21 in order to return to Albion for the start of Spring semester. The only problem with one semester stays at Aberdeen is that the psychology offerings to majors (the 3000 level psychology courses) are still closed to second semester entry.
