I'd advise an Alma freshman to

Don’t be scared to take a chance - look at the flyers around campus, if something interests you, go and find out if it’s something you want to do.

I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma

Alma is like home.

My favorite part about living on campus is

You are less than a 5 minute walk to everything and everyone.

I went to

I did a Spring Term in China with Dr. Dai. I stayed with a host family in Wuhan, visited schools and met some amazing people. I ate everything from meat dumplings to pigs feet, I’m proud to say I tried everything. I explored the Forbidden City and climbed the Great Wall. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life, and I hope to go back one day.
