I'd advise an Alma freshman to

join some clubs or organizations to meet like people, don’t do too much, take classes that interest you, get help from professors, don’t stress and have fun!

I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma

you need to do things that you love; it’s ultimately your decision so do what’s best for you. You are allowed to do more than one organization at a time and the small classes are amazing!

What I like most about studying at Alma is

it is challenging, forcing me to focus on my studies, but it doesn’t take up all of my time so I am able to join organizations and be with friends.

My favorite part about living on campus is

there is always something to do no matter what your personality is and it is all so close.
