One of the sincerely compelling reasons why I work at Albright College is the community of creative thinkers eager to learn from others and expand their world views. At present, for many of us, our ‘view’ has shrunk to the walls of our home. As we begin to return to our ‘new normal’, the Albright Admission Office will expand our online access, as well as begin to offer in-person, on-campus options for prospective students and their families. We will continue to do our best to make sure that you will feel the true essence of an Albright education, whether or not you can make it to campus. Our admission counselors will make themselves available to answer your questions, offer guidance, and alleviate concerns as you navigate the college search process. From our virtual Open House options, to an individual FaceTime meeting, or an information session as we wander around campus on a fall stroll, we have an option that will fit any circumstance. Come, join us, and allow us to impress upon you all of the opportunity and excitement that awaits you when you choose to join the Albright community.
– Jennifer Williamson, Director of Admission
You have questions, we have answers! In a time where there is so much uncertainty surrounding all of us, rest assured that every time you meet with an Albright College admission counselor you will be met with accurate, helpful, and valuable information to inform your college search. We will strive to accommodate any circumstance. Need to meet via FaceTime? Let’s do it. Prefer Zoom? Sure. Coming to campus? Can’t wait to see you! Let’s get started.
We’ve gone VIRTUAL! We know, we know – you’d be okay if you never heard the word ‘virtual’ ever again. We will certainly try our best, though, to make sure you are getting the most out of our virtual events to be able to see what it means to be an Albrightian. From our Virtual Panel series to our online open house events, or even our “Spill the Tea” events with Jenn Williamson, director of admission, we will make sure you log off of our events with a full understanding of Albright, as well as the experiences and resources we have to offer!
One thing that makes an Albright education truly different, is that our students are encouraged to personalize degrees by crossing or combining majors without adding extra time (or money) to the degree-completion timeline. But connecting our world doesn’t stop there. Albright is proud to be one of the most diverse colleges in Pennsylvania, comprised of a remarkable variety of people, backgrounds and thoughts. For more than 30 years, Dr. John Pankratz has taught history at Albright College, and for the last 18, he has documented the history of the college in hundreds of thousands of photographs. In addition to attending half a dozen events every week, John takes beautiful portraits of our close-knit community. Think of them as photos of a family you are welcome to join. See Albright’s intellectual, cultural, athletic and social life through John’s eyes.
