I took one year at Alma College, my Freshman year. I did not like it. The Admin had no idea how to handle covid lockdowns, which was common for colleges. However, Alma also had a way of trying to sweep things under the rug. Things like: students being threatened and harassed by other students, a certain frat being known for drugging girls, etc., etc.
Also if you wonder what their Covid-19 mask policy is:
You have to wear a mask any time you leave your dorm room. Even if you are walking alone to starbucks. If not you will get reprimanded by a staff member.
My Overall opinion of Alma College is that it is somewhat bigger than my high school but in general it tends to be smaller than any other schools that I have viewed. The people you meet on campus are nice and the professors are pretty much available whenever you need them to be. There are a lot of extracurricular activities that can be done and there are always a lot of people at the activities that you will always meet people that might become your friends.
Alma College is great academically. It will definitely help further your career once you graduate and also while you are attending the school. The food is bad but walmart is not too far so if you can cook you should go buy some groceries. College is definitely what you make it.
The main reason I chose to further my education at Alma College is because of the level of education each student receives. The small class sizes allow professors to connect with their students on a more personal level and to understand each student's most effective learning techniques. Every faculty member on campus is concerned about every student's future, whether they have them in class or not. What is most evident when walking through the classrooms is how professors are not in the classrooms just to collect a paycheck, they are there after hours to make sure they are improving and challenging their students as much as they can. As I am just finishing my freshman year, I have received opportunities I am confident that I would not have received at any other college. Through the basketball program alone, I have traveled to numerous states within the United States in order to compete against the best teams in the country. As a freshman, I was given the opportunity to travel abroad for a month to London, England and Paris, France for my Spring term. I am confident recommending Alma College to any student who is passionate about athletics, art, religion, politics, or anything else imaginable. Not only does Alma College mold and prepare students for life after college, but makes the experience enjoyable too.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Alma College is 67%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Go visit the campus, maybe even attend a class or two. It's really important to get a feel for the campus environment, the professors, and how the system operates as a whole. Talk to a few different students and ask their opinions of that school; see how many students around the campus are wearing the school paraphernalia. Talk with financial aid and see how much they're willing to work with you and your specific situation. Talk to as many people as possible and get lots of opinions.
I wish I would have known about more scholarships and grants. I have a lot of loans to pay back.
My school has a gorgeous campus that's just small enough to recognize people all the way to class and back every day, including your professors who will know you by name even as a freshman; it makes you feel comfortable with your peers and your professors throughout your college experience.
I can't pick one thing to be the best. The relationships I've made with the people here are phenomenal. I learn almost as much from them as I do from my classes. I guess though, if I have to choose, the theatre program is the best thing about this school. Theatre is my major. I spend all my time there, most of my friends are of the same major, and the professors that I am learning from are PHENOMENAL. I get a lot of the practical experience I need to really make it out in the real world.
The difficult of the class work and how each professor thinks they are the most important class on campus.
someone who doesnt want to learn and comes here just to play sports or be apart of any other extra curricular activities because if you dont do well in your school work you wont be eligible to participate in those activities
Make sure you have some idea of what you would like to do when you "grow up." The school really supports students who are Undecided and encourages them to explore classes, but they forget to mention that paying for a fifth year is VERY difficult and there is much less financial aid after four years.
Students are ambitious yet compassionate...for the most part.
I have found that the teachers are very involved in the campus as well as interacting with the students. I also enjoy how small some of the classes are with very close connection to the proffessors. I really enjoy how small campus is the longest walk which i never do is a five min walk.
There are barely any problems I have found with Alma. The only issue I seem to have is the food. I consider myself a very healthy person and I do not believe Alma has enough healthy options every day. I have heard this from many of my other friends in college too. This could be an Alma College problem, but I believe it is probably one of the problems with colleges in genteral.
Any person who wants to attend Alma College and meets academic requirements should most definitely apply and attend this amazing school because it is one of the best experiences you could ever have due to your fellow classmates, multiple on-campus events, faculty, and especially the professors who care about your education and seeing you succeed.
That we are all so close with the professors and the students; we're all friendly, we get along, and most people know who others are.
