Alma College Top Questions

Describe your favorite campus traditions.


Working hard and playing hard.


Alma is known for its students’ involvements in a variety of activities. My college gives students the opportunity to delve into opportunities that are not associated with their field of study. For example I am involved in the rock climbing club, the biology, psychology and chemistry clubs, the multicultural student union, and this fall I will join the kiltie highland dancers and I plan on rushing the Phi Sigma Sigma sorority.


Alma College is best known for its small, liberal arts "feel". Class sizes are small, professors are helpful, and a core group of friends are easy to make.


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.


It's academic excellence, specifically in its education department.


I think my school is best known for the people and the environment you get when you come onto campus. Of course Alma has great programs-- especially its sciences, education, and music--but each time you arrive on campus, you get many smiles from the students and faculty and you can tell how cohesive the college really is.. You feel at home.


The way the alumni connect and give back to the campus and the friendliness of students and alumni. If you step on campus you will generally be greeted with smiles and hellos and you get an equally pleasant reaction when you mention Alma to an alumni. They are more than pleased to talk about their Alma experience and to aid you in yours. They love to talk about what they do now, if they can help you and of course that they can't wait to see you at Homecoming.
