Alma is small but they tell you thatBrightUndecided
Alma is small but they tell you that before you come so you know what you are getting yourself into. The courses are difficult if you wish to succeed you have to do your homework and study for each class every night; not just the night before an exam. Also i believe like any school the social life here is what you make of it. I know plenty of students who complain about the social life but then they are the people who refuse to give it a chance and go home or to another school every weekend. For a small school Alma has some pretty good parties they are usually at the Frats but are sometimes at other locations. The nice thing about Alma being small is when you go to a party you actually know people there unlike big schools. The only thing i dislike about Alma so far is the food is not fantastic but you can not go to college expecting a great meal everyday.

Alma took me on probation and didn't careChemistry
Alma took me on probation and didn't care about my dismal high school grades (2.3)At the end of the first year allof the department knew me although I'd only had classes from 2. They waived prereqs allowing me to take two 300 level hist, one 300 religion and bio 404. If i would do the work they gave me the chance. I got into a top grad school and thena very good law school both out of Mich. The reputation of MIAA schools is very high eventhough we are scarce. Probation aided by focusing me on academics. After one term of chemistry 121 only one frat boy remained.

Alma is a great school that prepares youMusic Education
Alma is a great school that prepares you for the upcoming change that happens when College is over. My only regret is that I had an opportunity to study abroad and didn't take it... thought that one extra semester would be too much... I recommend that H.S. students visit the campus to get the feel of Alma. Alma may be set in a small, Michigan town, but it reaches globally in its studies as well as the opportunities attending and graduating from there present.
