Albright College to Meet 100 Percent of
Student Financial Need

Welcome to Albright College!

Our mission is to inspire and educate the scholar and leader in each student, building on a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences and a commitment to the best of human values, fostering a commitment to a lifetime of service and learning.

chemWe are a society that enjoys information at our fingertips, decisions yesterday and dashboard indicators to lessen the amount of reading time necessary to get answers.  A college education and college search are antonyms to these philosophies.  College students are asked to read, to present their critical thoughts both verbally and in writing and to discover through discussion, debate, and research that everything is related to everything else.  It is because of this that we encourage families to take their time with their college searches.  To research, to visit, to converse, to question, to feel, are all recommended pieces of a college search.

The Internet has enhanced a family’s ability to investigate more colleges than ever before, however I would like to recommend that you only allow the web to guide your search. It should not be the ultimate selection maker.  While 3-D technology is advancing quickly, a computer screen cannot provide you the depth of a school; it cannot create a relationship with a future mentor in the classroom; and, it doesn’t permit you to be educated in a classroom by those around you. 

A college search should be fun. It should be shared, and it can be an adventure.  It should also be taken seriously.  Please use the Albright web site as a resource, research your major, review the statistics, take an online tour and exchange thoughts with Albright students and admission professionals.  Then visit campus to realize that there is nothing like having an in-person conversation about your dreams and desires with an admission counselor, and that you can be inspired by a one-on-one conversation with a professor or coach. 

pondingI’m thrilled that you have decided to examine Albright College and our web site.  Please use our staff as a resource as we are educators to the college search, not salesmen.  We wish you all the success with your college search and welcome your visit to campus.

Assistant Vice President for Enrollment & Director of Admission
