Goodrich chapel. As a music major, I have spent the majority of my time there. It's where I go to class. It's where I eat. It's where I practice my instrument. It's where I laugh. It's where I cry and have mental breakdowns. It's where I make the most meaningful friendships. It's the place where I've had a lot of my significant moments.
I would love to own my own performing arts studio. Growing up, I've always gone to two different academies for music and dance. I would love it if there would be one place for people to go and learn how to play an instrument, or dance, or to study musical theatre, or do everything. I also would love to work in a different country, maybe as a translator. Or a job that allows me to travel frequently.
Albion is a place that truly cares about me and any other student. They want to know about my passions, not my GPA. They want to know about my gifts and contributions to society, not my resume. The small classroom setting allows students to engage and learn more efficiently. The campus size allows us to have a community and a unity that is rare on college campuses.
My favorite class at Albion was one of my honors courses concerning climate change. Since science is not my strong suit, I was really nervous about taking this course. However, it turned out to be the most interesting and engaging course I've ever taken. We got to experience the solar eclipse outside, and talk about the world and how it's changing and most importantly: what we can do to fix it.
