About Albright College
The 118-acre suburban campus of Albright College, the oldest college in Berks County, is nestled at the foot of Mount Penn in Reading, Pennsylvania, a city of 80,000 people.
The early years of Albright contain numerous transfers and mergers. The establishment of Union Seminary in 1856 marks the beginning of the college. The United Evangelical Church and the Evangelical Association started other colleges and universities in the 1800s. These colleges and universities later merged to form the current Albright College. The liberal arts history at the college has its roots in the three-year collegiate Union and Schuylkill Seminaries, which were not theological seminaries.
Albright Collegiate Institute was founded in 1895, and in 1898, it changed its name to Albright College. Albright College and Union Seminary were established in 1856 and reorganized as Central Pennsylvania College in 1887, amalgamated in 1902. Founded in 1881, Schuylkill Seminary later merged with Albright College in 1929 and was renamed Schuylkill College. With the merger, Albright moved from its campus in Myerstown, Pennsylvania, to the campus it has now.
