The school is not too strict and the policies are resonable.

I often overhear conversations about some big party, but for the most part it seems to be only alcohol and not hugely risky. Only drugs I hear discussed are ADD drugs.

Reading is a nice enough area if you are smart about where you go and how you handle yourself. Lots of restaurants around and a few good shopping options.

I myself have a car and I enjoy the student parking they offer. It's very close to my classes and I don't have problems finding a spot.

Albright is not as diverse as other colleges. Most students are either white or from eastern countries. Albright only has a few Hispanic students and African American students, but apart from that it's a wonderful school where we accept everyone as they are.

There are many different races/ethnicity/religions here at Albright with a multitude of acceptance from the student body.

Most local businesses give the campus a discount. There are plenty of places to eat with variety from chain stores to mom and pop food shops and stores.

Mostly mild temperatures but a small enough campus that when its cold the buildings are close enough.

Transportation is really nice thanks to public safety. There are vans to take you to Mall Mondays, Target Tuesdays, and Walmart Wednesdays (each have more stores around them than what they're called). They also offer continuous transportation around campus, to the 'off-campus' but Albright housing, and to the Giant strip and Wawa, even late at night. You can also call (they encourage you to call!) public safety anytime to get a ride, even if you're coming from a party, their job is to keep you safe, not get you in trouble.

Albright has very good computers. recently new and plenty of them to go around for the student body.

no matter what college you go to there will always be some kind of drugs. But at Albright the amount is actually quite low.
College Junior 2013-01-17T15:25:24Z
housing is a little hard since there isn't a lot of adviable housing for students.
College Junior 2013-01-17T15:23:49Z
There really aren't many restaurants to go to considering that the town is extremely old and worn down. But those few restaurants that are close to the college have good food, service, and dining exerpience.

Albright College accepts anyone of ethnicity, religion, gender, so on. They do not allow the little things to stop the faculty from accepting students worthy of attending Albright. Most of the student body is made up of white students. But there are a large amount of other ethnicities present as well.

A few of my friends are in Sororities/Fraternities, but most of them complain about their service work and their brothers and sisters more often than not. It's very cliquey, but they are fiercely passionate about their Greek Friends. They raise money for charities, but I don't know which ones. I don't think we have Greek housing on campus. The non-Greeks often view the Greeks as loud and obnoxious.

The English program at Albright is phenomenal. I am on a first name basis with most of my professors, and if I have any problems in class, they are more than happy to sit down with me and help me out. The reading material is almost always poignant and the assignments not only record your personal skill, but help you understand the material at hand (and it's not just "write a paper," either. For my Shakespeare class, we were invited to help out with the upcoming performance of "King Lear" as our final project).
My only complaint for my major is that we don't read enough American Literature, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons here.

If you've done well in high school, you almost automatically get a scholarship. I received one for $12,500 a year as a B student in high school, and I don't know anyone else who's attending without a scholarship.
There are also a few grants that are easily available.
Unfortunately, that's about it. Private scholarships are pretty hard to get, but you can always ask financial aid if they have anything available.

The computer labs can run a bit slow if too many people are there, but the computers are reliable and we have a mix of PCs and Macs. WiFi is available almost everywhere, but the network can boot you off sometimes. Printing is free, to my knowledge. I recommend a personal computer (you won't need a printer), only because you can take notes on a laptop in class and you are always guaranteed a computer.

I love Albright and would choose it time and time again. The small campus atmosphere makes you feel right at home.
College Junior 2013-01-14T20:02:19Z
I love my major at Albright. The classes are demanding but it really does help you. I have never felt more confident that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.

As a future Child Life Specialist, getting an internship was difficult. But the science department really helped me in finding one at the local hospital. They really took time to help me build my own internship that I would love.

Transportation is pretty good at the school. Public safety can take students places and is always willing to pick students up if they do not feel safe. Buses are always running and a schedule is available.
College Sophomore 2013-01-03T20:02:28Z
There isn't much of a drug scene. People do use but it depends on who you get yourself involved with. Drinking is around just like every college, but it can be avoided. Policy is enforced pretty well if someone is caught. Everything really depends on who you choose to associate with.

The campus is okay, very rural area. There isn't too much going on here at Albright College. I probably wouldn't know, the professors here keep me busy. If campus prices are too high for you, we have a host of lower priced stores just around the corner big names like Giant, Dollar Tree, and Wawa. The campus is safe, my freshman year so far hasn't had any mishaps occur that I know of. Berkshire Mall is just 15 minutes away if you want to go shopping. Sports, I play for the football team here and from what I've seen our games are get live, we have some very expressive fans and we reward them with good play. I don't really have time to join clubs/ or do activities and stuff, but from what I've heard we have lots things you can do you'll never go bored.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T21:58:42Z
They're strict maybe too strict for my liking. They do a lot to keep the students and staff safe here at Albright. I remember one time I was walking to the library around 11pm and I was spotted by a public safety officer, he asked me if everything was okay. I nodded and kept going. I understand he was just doing his job, but that was creepy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
