Albion is a fantastic community. The professors get to know you and genuinely care about you. The administration is approachable and reachable.
Isaac from Quincy, MI
Albion College is an excellent place to learn and grow! If you are into a fine liberal arts education, then there is no better place to attend. The campus is small and provides a unique learning experience like no other.
Alexander from Grosse Pointe Woods, MI
A beautiful little campus, the people are friendly, the classes small, and the faculty invested. It certainly focuses on the Liberal-Arts program, combining a world-opening view and more concrete skills. Definitely expensive, but if you value community and knowing everybody and creating relationships throughout campus, Albion could be for you.
Michael from Alpena, MI
The small sized classes and close knit campus is perfect for anyone looking for one-on-one attention in college. You will often hear people refer to Albion as a family. The professors are willing to put the time in outside of the classroom to help you succeed if you are willing to work hard as well.
Albion offers a well-rounded and personalized education. Albion has historical and beautiful architecture. Albion is a place where one can become comfortable and one can call home.
Tabitha from Flint, MI
Albion College is a fantastic place to study! It had amazing programs for business and healthcare, as well as a great honors programs. All of the students and staff are very supportive in everything that you might do.
Cristino from Grand Rapids, MI
Albion is a small, liberal arts school with excellent science and pre-health programs as well as psychology, education, business, and others. The professors are mostly all wonderful, with a few not-so-great. Greek life is huge, and there's always something going on on-campus.
