Alma College is a small town college that has very strong education and health-related programs. The atmosphere is very diverse, friendly and cultured. There are many world traveling opportunities and the professors are accessible and awesome.
Lauren from Pewamo, MI
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!
