Maryssa - 01/01/2022

Adrian College is only worth it for the faculty that put their heart and souls in it for the success of their students. Its a lot of money for mediocre facilities. Tuition goes up each year. Programs are threatened to be cut what seems like every year, and promises made to incoming students have the likelihood of being docked halfway through their degree. Many of the higher staff that are not professors don't seem like they actually care about the students. To the administration, you are just a number.

When I first visited Adrian, I really loved it there! It's a small campus with lots of stuff to do on weekdays and weekends. The campus's landscape is extremely beautiful. We have a church and landscapers that work on the campus grounds during the day and they help keep the campus beautiful. The housing is not top of the line since it's an older college, but there are plenty of places to go and meet with friends so you aren't stuck in your room all day. I came there to get an education and run cross-country and track and their weight room is state of the art, so that's a plus if you need to blow off some steam. They also have Segways that you can ride around campus in, but you need to do a training course before you can take them out by yourself, so I usually stick with the bikes. Honestly, I never get old of this place and I knew if I had to take out a loan I would do it while attending Adrian. There's so much bang for my buck. I am happy that I chose Adrian as my college.

Jessica - 02/10/2020

Adrian college is definitely not for everyone, which I found out for myself shortly after coming here. It is a very small campus of only about a square mile and there is not much to do off-campus either. If you are looking for small class sizes, to play sports, or just to downsize from a larger school, then AC might be for you.

Wyatt - 06/12/2019

Adrian College is a very beautiful campus with thriving social life in the quad and opportunities for wonderful teacher student relationships. The clam small school atmosphere allows students to be more focused and provides a chance to become better connected with your fellow peers.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    This is sort of brainstorm writing, no organization, I'm writing as it comes to me. One thing I notice is that college students find themselves at college, everyone knows that. But a high school student needs to analyze themselves before going to college, if you try to find yourselve earlier, you can find where you best fit. Education levels vary from school to school, but they aren't all that different, unless your deciding between Harvard and Eastern Michigan University, the education levels won't be too far apart. So what i believe is important is to find a school where you can feel you are most attracted to. A school where you believe you will gain the most knowledge as well as have the most fun. Half of college is education, the other half is being away from home, learning to live on your own, and learning to socialize and interact. If you attend a school you don't enjoy, you may still get the education you dreamed of, but you will miss on half of the experience.

They also claim to ask the students about issues, even though we find out later that they have already made up their minds.

  8. What kind of person should attend this school?

    A hard working, athlete who devotes most his time to sports and school. It isn't all that bad here, but the social life isn't thriving, it is an all athlete school and people normally from groups with their teams. So you really have to love the sport you play because it has to fill the gap that forms from a lack of social life.
