Why did you choose Albion?

The majority of the schools that I applied to were larger state schools and it was often difficult to communicate with them effectively. Albion, however, seemed very personal since the beginning and I even received several phone calls from my admissions counselor, which was completely different from what I experienced with other schools. It ultimately came down to feeling like an individual as opposed to a number.

What is your best Albion memory or experience?

The experience that I have had through my Fraternity and with my brothers has been such an important part of my personal growth and learning at Albion. From events such as Anchorsplash to holding leadership positions in the house, I can't imagine my college experience without being involved in Delt.

What are your future plans?

After I graduate, I would like to find employment at an accounting firm and earn my CPA. Further down the road, I want to return to school and earn my MBA as well as a Master's or Ph.D.

How have financial aid and scholarships helped you?

The opportunity of attending a school like Albion would not be available to me without financial aid and scholarships. Albion has presented me with opportunities that would have been unavailable elsewhere.

How would you finish this sentence: "Because you give to Albion, I'm able to…

…attend an institution that has helped me grow both personally and professionally, that has introduced me to people that have made a significant impact on my life, and that has prepared me more for the future than any other experience has so far.
