It is a great school for people looking for a liberal arts education. The professors encourage student participation and are always available to help. The staff is there to ensure that we get the best experience that we deserve and there is plenty of student organization to be involved in. The campus may not be perfect, but public safety officers regularly patrol it ensuring the safety of the students. Not only do students have advisors to help them stay on track, and they also have Student Success Specialists that meet with students to help them have the best college experience that they can and make sure they are doing all the work for their classes.
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.
its a small campus with most people retaining their high school mentalities while feigning maturity. Small campus come with the perk of being
The school has great academic programs in all areas of study. Small class sizes and campus is good for those not ready for a huge change from high school. There is a wide variety of clubs and organizations to join. The campus is beautiful and doesn't feel like it is in the city.

I would tell myself not to stress over the transition so much. College is very similar to high school in terms of the work load. Making friends in college is not very hard and the people are all working toward graduation, so they are all motivated. Instead of worrying about how difficult new classes will be, get excited about the opportunity to learn things which interest you. You and your friends will not grow apart--the internet will keep you togther. Although you do not want to call your parents all the time, make sure that you keep in touch with them. They will take it personally if you do not make time for them at least once in a while. Remember to call your grandparents and aunts, too. Keep your head up and you will adjust to dorm life very easily. Stay positive and think of college as a new beginning instead of an ending.
My classmates are studious, eager people whom want to excel in their area(s) of studies.
Albright College is a great fit for someone who like to have a close group of friends. There are not too many students here and so someone who has trouble making friends may find it difficult to fit in. Someone who is social and friendly will have an easy time making friends and they will become close to other students very quickly.
I think that the fact the school is very expensive to attend is the worst part.
Be sure you want such a small college. Good idea to join a greek organization. Don't like to eat good food.
How wonderful everyone is.
Albright College is placed on a small campus in Reading, Pennsylvania. Walking around, one easily becomes familiar with the atmosphere and the other students around them. There are many majors to choose from that allow you to go into any job you dream of. The different clubs and organizations availalble allow you to meet other students as well. Simply walking around the campus gives one a warm feeling that they are party of a wonderful community.
not sure. strong alumni
My school is very friendly, small, peaceful, it's ike being at home; there is always a sense of secuity, you are never scared to walk to the library at night or to campus; the teachers ae very helpful and are willing to work with you when ever needed, they care about you learning what you need to know, it is like one big family.
The small environment keeps everybody aware of each other. It is nice to see familiar faces as everybody goes about their beaten path day-to-day. You find yourself talking with people you don't even know, but by the end of the conversation, you cannot wait until the next time you cross paths.
I love the enviroment that surrounds my school. The campus scenery is breath taking and the surround area is not bad. The teachers are all very helpful and the students are always there for each other. We are a very close net community and many people are just like family and treat each other as such. I could not have found a better enviromant to continue my education than right here at Albright.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that it is located in an area that is very inconvenient for a student without a vehicle. You can get everything you need within walking distance (grocery, pharmacy, clothing) but most of the attractions were only readily accessible by car.
Albright College is a liberal arts school, meaning that there are a lot of general education courses that have absolutely nothing to do with one's major. I found that aspect appealing because I believe it helps to make a student more well-rounded. However, a language is required (unless you test out), which is a big turn off for many students. It is true that the professor is the deciding factor on whether or not a class will be enjoyable. Do your research with the upperclassmen when picking your classes and professors.
All of my professors have been very accessible and even put their phone numbers on their syllabus. The school has very high standards and Dean's List is a 3.75 at Albright.
Greek life and sports rule the party scene. There are over 200 clubs to choose from and most do not require weekly meetings. Albright requires students to go to "experience events" in order for them to graduate, so those are usually pretty packed. I suggest showing up about half an hour in advance. I met all of my closest friends from living in the same dorm as them. People always have their doors open and are very friendly. There is a bowling alley a couple minutes off campus and the Pagoda is a pretty popular place to walk to.
Choosing a college is a lot of work, and choosing the right college is very stressful. The first time I stepped onto Albright College's campus I knew it was where I was intended to be. My search was not stressful because I just followed my heart. I love the friendly, small campus atmosphere. The small campus community gives me a chance to be known for the little things that I do to help make a difference in my school. I knew that a big school was not for me because I wanted to have a lasting connection with my professors. Albright college allowed me to have the comfort of a home away from home feeling. I was very nervous to move from home, but once I was greeted by the friendly students all my fears disappeared. I appreciate how Albright has the friendliest staff and professors working their. They all want us to succeed and accomplish our dreams. All of my professors have an open door policy, and they stay late to help their students who are having a little trouble in class. There are so many opportunities for me at Albright that I get mad because I will never be able to take advantage of them all. I found a college that is more than just a place to better my education I found a place to make memories. I am proud to call Albright my family.
Most people always tell me how I attend a "very good school" when I tell them I go to Albright College. I would say there really is no stereotype for someone studying at Albright. It's a pretty small school, so it's very close-knit and everyone knows almost everyone face to face.
