    Alma is one of the best campuses for activities. Because we are such a small school, everyone gets to know everyone. Whether you go check out a play or work out in the rec, you will always run into someone you know. The college even has an organization, ACUB, to help bring and develop fun activities for students. This includes Alma's version of American Idol (Songfest), Halo style laser tag, and much, much more. Oh, and my number one favorite: exam treats.

    By the end, I was getting a little tired of being stuck in the same rooms with the same people all the time, but that's more of a personal problem than anything. The classes were challenging... in a good way! And as I get farther and farther away from my time there... I miss it more.

    Alma College balances its rigorous academic schedules with great student support programs, not only academically but also socially, physically, mentally, and spiritually. The campus becomes home to its students, and it's hard not to love it there.

    Everyone on this campus is really nice and is willing to help everyone. Whether you know the person really well or not, you are guaranteed to receive a smile while walking to class or just taking a stroll around campus. It is very easy to find friends you enjoy being around with the size of the campus.

    The people at Alma are so friendly and its easy to make close friends because of the size. I see the same people everyday and on my way to class I see at least 10 people I know that i get a smile and wave from. A small school is really the way to go.
