Why I chose Albion College:

I chose Albion because I love close knit environments. I feel that being able to learn in a smaller classroom can benefit the student both academically and socially. I didn't like the large public schools because I felt I'd become just "another face in the crowd". I really love the idea that the professors and students will know everyone on a first name basis rather than a number or an occasional scan through from an assignment. Besides the smaller classrooms, I really like all of the activity opportunities; I am able to pursue my passion of running at Albion and that puts the cherry right on top of the sundae.
