A graduate of Lake Havasu High School, Feely is studying Sociology: Criminology at Albright. Feely is joined by 440 first year and transfer students.

Academically minded, members of the new class have taken an average of seven honors courses during high school. Thirty-six graduated in the top 10% of their high school classes and 68 are eligible for Albright’s prestigious Honors program.

Although their top declared majors are business, biology, psychology and education, the college’s Alpha program (designed to help students find their best fit) is also very popular among class of 2027 members. And a whopping 70% of new Albrightians plan to take advantage of the college’s distinctive co-major program, which enables students to cross or combine different programs, without taking longer to graduate.
