I'm a transfer student, and like many others, my experience with the school was horrible.
You Know You Went to Albion When...
You get no cell phone reception anywhere on campus even if you stand on the roof of a building
Tech has held your computer hostage for weeks on end to install software, and you have to take it back because they did it wrong
Your friends buy their books used so they can but more alcohol because there's nothing to do but drink on campus.
You've decided that Liberal Arts is a crock and it's screwed you over in your major (along with the registrar, who now in your senior year is telling you that you failed to take the required courses, even though you tried to earlier but they were "full")
Even if you get on a wait list, there is no way you can get into an upper level class needed for your major without a 2 month advance
Join as many clubs and organizations as possible to make the campus seem bigger and to try to fill up all the time you have...
You think that Lot 9 is the creepiest part of campus, and believe that you'll be killed while waiting the 30 minutes for Campus Safety to arrive to escort you back to your dorm
You have been having trouble with your lover because they hate coming to visit you in Albion and you phone calls keep getting broken up on the land lines and on your cell phone because you can't get reception
Find the sign that greets you to Albion hysterical because it welcome you to the "Smart" community, where half the populations of the grade schools and the townies are illiterate
You check your email 6 times a day because you have nothing better to do with your time (when the wireless is working)
At one point or another you've cursed the college and administration for stressing you to the point of giving you an ulcer
You can't "make a major" as promised because the registrar needs you to have a "respectable" major (i.e. one of the 30 listed)
Your friends from MSU or U of M ask what your plans for the weekend are and you respond with the possibility of seeing a free movie in town, or...or nothing.
You check your KC box at least 3 times a day in the hopes that the outside world still remembers you in the little "town" of Albion
You have discovered that Liberal Arts is infinitely more conservative than you ever thought to be possible
You're dealing with an important call and you lose the call due to the wonderful cell phone (and land line) connection
The t.v. reception randomly cuts in and out...very similar to your phone calls. Coincidence? I think not!
There are two halls dedicated to housing the freshman, and if you"re an upperclassman living in Wesley you're friends just feel bad for you
You refuse to go anywhere in town by yourself because the townies freak you out more than the thought of your parents having sex
Making friends with a 6-pack of Busch Light is your idea of an "expensive" night out
And those are just a few things...
Albion College is like unprotected sex: glad you got in, but sorry you came...
