They will tell you anything to get youQuite BrightArt & Design Department
They will tell you anything to get you to come to this establishment. The "mock dorm" they show you is about twice as big as the regular dorm. The buildings are falling apart, internet never works, and neither do the printers. The library is only open from 8 am to 11 pm, so no late night work time is available. They bring in hundreds of males from florida to play football in the fall and because of this, crime rates sky rocket. (But you wont see this on campus safety reports, because campus doesn't allow students to report incidents in writing.) Once football season is over, a majority of the florida students are expelled, making campus much better in the fall. Food is below average, making it nearly impossible to be healthy. Definitely better choices out there for the amount of money.

Question
Albion College is not a good school toQuite BrightEconomics
Albion College is not a good school to go to. The only good program is the pre-med. If you want to do anything in banking or finance, DO NOT GO TO ALBION. The school barely helps you contact any alumni unless you have made a personal connection with an older professor who still stays in contact with them. The living conditions are horrid, they dont let you live off campus, and the students are the most socially awkward kids that came out of high school. The townies hate the students because they have more money than they do. The campus although safe for a male, can be unsafe at night for women. Albion use to standard issue rape whistles in the 1980's. And now they issue pepper spray... The only good thing I will say, is that when you do happen to find a not weird friend, they will probably be your firend for a long time cause of the bonding over the miserable experience of ALBION COLLEGE.

Question
Adrian College was my first and only choiceBrightCommunications
Adrian College was my first and only choice for a place to attend college. After 3 full years as a full time student, I have been made more and more aware of the issues that the school refuses to address. Many of the services on the campus are simply not acceptable.

The wireless internet has been an issue for all 3 years and continues to not be a priority to the administration. But don't worry each dorm room is equipped with an ethernet port (which works only most of the time), just don't compete too much with your roommate for that ethernet.

Next the dining quality, while improving, is not up to snuff. Nothing is open past 11, which wouldn't be a problem if college students kept "normal" hours. But disregarding that, when calculating how much a meal plan actually costs per meal, the average is above $20 per meal. But don't worry to live on campus you are required to have a meal plan.

Parking is another matter to consider. The cost to park on campus is $150, and the competition for parking spots is brutal. When questioned about the issue, the campus has responded "there isn't a parking problem only a walking problem." Now walking from a parking lot a quarter of a mile away from your dorm is reasonable in the late spring and early fall months, but in the winter the walk can be brutal.The professors are the saving grace of the school. The small class sizes allow you to get to know the professors in a great way.
