My greatest accomplishment at Alma is

After my sophomore year, I traveled to Tanzania on a P-GLOBAL scholarship and worked in a remote hospital for a month. This was an absolutely life-changing experience that provided me with some very tangible reasons to continue in medicine.

I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma

Come to Alma and get involved with something that changes the world! Alma College is unique because the classes show how the material connects with the bigger picture and why it’s important to know.
