The classes here are VERY intense. Be prepared to study A LOT. But also, be prepared to be intelligent and actually have something knowledgeable to contribute to conversations. I like being able to talk about something meaningful with my parents now like politics (Political Science major! lol).

    Alma College is a small, private college that has many opportunities. Don't let the size fool you, as a current freshmen I have already had several hands on experiences with actual clients. Alma is a great little school that focuses on preparing students for the next step in life.

    Alma is a great, small, friendly college. Everyone on campus is great and the courses challenging. Everyone on campus is willing to do their best to help you succeed. Alma really does become your home.

    Alma College will give you an unforgettable college experience with a close-knit campus atmosphere. Professors there are not only your mentors, but your close friends. There is no where else in the world I would have gotten amazing opportunities and done as well as I did at Alma College; I definitely left my fingerprints there forever.

    It's a small, close-knit school, which is good because everyone (including professors) knows you, but bad because everyone knows you. Classes are not going to be easy, which is a good thing because it makes you more prepared in the long run. I am very happy with my decision to become a Scot!

    Alma College works hard to make sure all the students are taken care of as best they can. The school works together in a harmony that I've never seen; bringing together Greek Life, academics, and everything else in between. The classes are mostly small with professors that try to do what they can to help students, but do remember that they're just as human as you.

    Everything I wanted in a college. Difficult, but worth every second. The best schooling I could have asked for.

    Alma is a great community to study and live in. The professors really care that you succeed and all the staff members I've met so far are really great peoples. I can't imagine going to any other college.

    There is only one Alma. Alma College provides great opportunities to travel abroad beginning Freshman or Sophomore year. Alma College has a terrific sense of community among students, faculty, and local residents.

    Alma is a bubble: once there you're basically cut off from the outside world. Within the bubble the student body consists of cliques made up of the numerous clubs and organizations on campus. Once you're in one place, it's difficult to fit in somewhere else.

    Alma is a small, student centered college. The admissions team goes out of their way to make prospective students feel welcome. I am looking forward to attending this fall.
