The newest ranking of colleges by, released earlier this week, counts Albion College among the country’s top 50 private institutions with fewer than 2,500 students.

With a 12-to-1 student-faculty ratio, Albion has long been known for its teaching and the connections students create with professors and staff. Those connections regularly lead to impactful experiential learning and networking opportunities on and off campus, often through the College’s well established institutes and centers that focus on public policy and service, business, medicine and health, sustainability and the environment, and teacher development.

Money’s 2022 Best Colleges listing also puts Albion at No. 32 among all colleges and universities in the Great Lakes states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. Additionally, Money included Albion in its top quartile of America’s best value colleges and universities that admit at least 20 percent of applicants.

“As they navigate their college search, prospective students and their families continually come to see the value of an Albion education,” says Jamie Krueger, vice president of enrollment management. “They catch glimpses of that value in conversations with their tour guide and other students during a campus visit. It comes through in a phone call with a professor, coach or member of our admission team. They hear or read success stories about our alumni.

“From enrollment to graduation, our students know that Albion’s combination of opportunity, value, and personal attention and support is one that few other schools can match,” Krueger says.
