What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a freshman who is about to move in on-campus at Albright College in a few weeks. Although I'm rather inexperienced and haven't toured the campus as much as I'd like, from first impressions and recent research from other student reviews, I feel as though I will have a wonderful time living on-campus. It may take some time acclimating to a new home, but I believe that goes for every situation where one moves into another residence. However, from the people I've met and interacted with during my time applying and visiting, I feel as though it won't be long before I can call this place as another home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went to Albright for two years. Those were the best two years of my life. I made life long friends and learned from some of the best professors around. There was always something going on around campus. If you were bored it was because you weren't looking in the right place to do something!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Albright College is a second home to me. I'm only a freshman, and I've already made lifelong friendships. The campus culture is friendly and welcoming, and I'm offered opportunities I never thought I would have. Though Albright is a small campus in the center of a small city, it's the definition of diversity. I've met people from all over the country and even from outside of the country, and they all have made it clear that they feel at home on campus. There's so much to do- the arts center has piano rooms students can play in, all courts and fields are open for students to utilize, and there is a great gym, membership included in our tuition! The college offers safe parties- in fact, last week there was a wicked cool glow in the dark party- and brings in new people to entertain. A few weeks ago, I watched an illusionist perform an intense escape act that had everyone on their seats; and it was totally free to attend. The student body is involved and the professors are friendly and easy to approach. Albright College is perfect for any student who wants the full college experience, combined with a small, inclusive campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Albright College is a really small school in Reading Pennsylvania, for some this is a school for them. However, for me, it is not. I'm planning on transferring during my sophomore year because this college life is not fit for my career goal. As a student and an educator, I aspire to network and connect with people. However, Albright College has a very small population and it is in the suburbs. This hinders me from creating many connections and exploring my options when it comes to internships and perhaps job placements.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is great considering the professors. They are most of the time available and are there for emotional support. I have had multiple issues with the financial aid office. I continuously tell them that I need assistance, but they refuse to help and do not provide an answer to one's situation. the school tends to fine the individual for everything they do or everything they cannot do. Most of the administration is filled with incompetent beings who cannot do their job. There is a great diversity within the demographics, but I feel as if there is not as great of an LGBT representation as there should be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Of all the college I've applied to, Albright gave the most financial aid. This is the main reason I am currently attending it, unable to pay for higher choices. It provides many opportunities to first generation college students and people who could not normally pay. It's quality among other schools is middling, there are no major issues but it is more akin to a large community college than a normal college. The college is a good place for people looking for an education, though many may aspire to higher things than the education it provides.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Albright College is very diverse in students and they are all very friendly. Albright college has very good public safety and very clean. The dorms are very adequate. Classes are smaller so its easier to learn. The professors are very knowledgeable and very friendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school for my major, but it is not considered the best school out there. I would much rather be going to an art school. The campus food is not great, I eat the same thing every day. Our football team loses every game, and no one really cares for the other sports.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is a total scam. Not only is it extremely over priced but they try every trick in the book to cost you more money. I am a current student at Albright and it has been two weeks since I started and let me tell you about the atrocious money grabs that they try to pull on you. Not only do they force you to take classes that you don't need towards your major, each class requires 2-4 books per class. You get no book-store credit so you must pay for all books out of pocket. The one Spanish book alone was 300 dollars and the biology book is close to 250, let alone the other text book need for biology and the other 9 books i needed for my other classes. Then the grading system is completely different than any other college in the United States. For every 3 credits i would earn at a community college, Albright gives you 1. The explicitly tell you that if you transfer after your freshman year to another school, you will have to start again as a freshman because you would only have 8 credits by the end of your freshman year, as opposed to the 25 or so credits you would have at a community college. When asking the financial aid office about transferring my financial aid to another school for the next semester, the secretary told me that i don't have financial aid for next semester and that the remaining 1,300 that i have from this semester is the only money i would have to pay for next semester. She basically told me that if I tried to leave that the school would keep my financial aid and i would have to pay for my classes at my next college out of pocket. They do everything in their power to keep you here so that you continue to take out loans from them and so that they can continue to eat away your financial aid. Now, lets talk about the professors. Not all of them are bad, but this one professor I have basically refuses to teach. He will go over a new topic every class without explaining it and when you ask a question he simply says " I expect you to already know this"; If i'm supposed to already know the information you're supposed to be teaching me and i have to learn it on my own, why am i paying you? To make matters worse he teaches a class linked to another major class, so if i fail one or the other class i fail both and must retake both classes regardless of if i did well in one of them, but the real kicker is I only get 1 combined credit from both classes; yes that's right 1 credit for two classes that would be stand alone classes in a normal university. So instead of getting 6 credits for these two classes i get 1. If there was ever an appropriate time to call something a scam, this would be it. A luxurious looking campus on the outside that appeals to the parents but on the inside its a different story. Most of the air conditioners in the dorm rooms don't get cold, and if there is trash from a room found in the bathroom trash bin the entire floor gets fined. Oh yes, this school loves to fine people. If break something in your room (that isn't already broken when you got there) you get fined, if you open an emergency door you get fined, if you use the internet in a way they don't like you get fined, if you breathe incorrectly you get fined. It has been 2 weeks since iv'e been here and already I can tell you this place is a perfect match for anyone who's parents are rich and who's kids have low standards and like to be unreasonably stressed beyond measure, if you enroll here it would be the worst mistake you've ever made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good school that needs to adjust some of its ways. They need to adapt to the culture of the students. As well as give need based financial aid Tom those who attend. Most people leave due to not having enough funding. Albright isn’t a good school that just needs to help out a lot more to their students.
