visiting Albright


…come sit in a red Adirondack chair and get to know us

We hear it over and over again: when students talk about why they chose Albright, they say that during their campus visit, the campus "felt like home".  Maybe it's our beautiful 118-acre campus that allows room for exploration but never feels overwhelming.  Maybe it’s the facilities that make the academic life intriguing and the extracurricular life exciting.  Maybe it’s the people of Albright who are diverse in their backgrounds and interests, and always welcoming.  It's hard to put a finger on exactly what it is: that's why we hope you'll come experience Albright for yourself.

We invite you to visit our beautiful campus, experience the challenging yet supportive academic environment, get to know our friendly people and see if you could be a member of the Albright family.

We offer a variety of ways for you to explore life at Albright.  To schedule a visit to campus, simply give us a call at 800-252-1856.
