My greatest accomplishment at Alma is

I transferred to Alma my junior year and after one year, I have established a lot of close connections. It is like I have been here for three years! 

I'd advise an Alma freshman to

Take all of the travel opportunities that you can. I wish that I would have gone to Alma for all four years. It has given me the best college experience thus far! 

I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma

It will give you the best college experience that you can get! I am going to miss Alma once I graduate, but I know that because of Alma College I have established close connections that will help me once I am out in the workplace. 

What I like most about studying at Alma is

it is challenging, but rewarding. You have to study hard, but it is all worth it in the end. The professors are always willing to help out when you need them. They want to see you succeed. I also like how they give students the opportunity to study abroad. I am going to take advantage of this next spring term! 

My favorite part about living on campus is

everything is within a five-minute walk. You can wake up late and know that you will still make it to your class on time!
