Albion’s size presented me with a wealth of opportunity that I don’t feel I could’ve gotten at any other school. From the personal attention in the classroom and customized career/internship assistance, to never failing to see a friendly, familiar face everywhere I went, Albion is an incredible place and an enriching experience.
Albion’s liberal arts-based educational experience, coupled with leadership and personal growth opportunities, gave me the tools I needed to succeed. Gaining skills and taking classes outside of my major allowed me to become a better writer and thinker, which my employer has said sets Albion students apart from students at state universities. I love my job and I feel confident about my career, and Albion helped me get here.
...was my home. Attending Albion was the best decision I ever made. Not only did I get a great education, but I made my life there. My best friends, my fondest memories, and my most important life lessons came from being an involved Albion student.
I didn’t realize it when I applied, but Albion is a great school for aspiring Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Beyond the top notch education, I was able to complete my educational requirements to become licensed (150 hours) in four years at Albion, without taking many extra classes or overloading my schedule. Most CPAs have to complete five years of school to meet the requirement, giving me and other CPA candidates from Albion an advantage professionally and financially.
