Despite reports, Albion’s smaller class size next year is not a result of budget cuts, poor PR or moldy residence hall buildings. The small class size is actually a result of a new recruiting campaign inspired by the United States Army old slogan: An Army of One.
Come next fall, the college hopes that more veterans will be populating Albion’s campus, thanks to a recently launched initiative.
The number of enrollment deposits—the deposit that ensures a student’s attendance next fall- that Albion has received is down 10 percent from this time last year, from 101 to 91, according to Kevin Kropf, director of admission. Applications as a whole fell 13 percent.
