My greatest accomplishment at Alma is

obtaining a 4.0 GPA during my first semester.

I'd advise an Alma freshman to

do your best to find time for both studying and relaxation every day.

I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma

The best way to know if Alma is right for you is to meet the staff and student leaders so that you may get to know them. If you enjoy having a personal connection with your community, then Alma may be right for you. 

What I like most about studying at Alma is

I have greatly enjoyed the patience and understanding of the staff. They are willing to assist you in nearly every area that you struggle with and truly want to see you succeed.

My favorite part about living on campus is

The tightly knit nature of the campus and community makes it incredibly easy to get involved with activities and groups, which help you to broaden your horizons in life. If someone had told me in high school that I would join a swing dance club in college, I would have assumed that they were crazy, but that is what happened, and I’m happy with the way my social life has evolved here.
