Town & Gown Podcast Returns
We are excited to announce the return of Albion College's podcast: Town & Gown. While the style of previous episodes, which provided opportunities to celebrate shared success between the College and the City, will remain, Rachel Barry, ’18, student host of the show, will be focusing on topics for current and prospective students. In her debut episodes, she had a chance to sit down with President Ditzler for a "Minute with Mauri" (OK, so our chats might last a few minutes each). Listen here. You can listen to previous podcasts on iTunes or Soundcloud. The 2018 run of episodes will be updated to both soon.
Students Make a Difference in Various Fields
Several students have been highlighted for their success in the past month. Read their stories:
Zerick Dill, ’20, Receives Howard Hughes Medical Institute Fellowship
Jon Haadsma, ’19, Reflects on Taking a Swing at the Big Leagues
Whether on Skis or Horseback, Maddie Darby, ’20, Is Always Competing

February Recap: Why did you choose Albion?

Thank you to all who participated in February's #Britonline! It was a delight to hear your stories of what brought you to our campus and how your time here helped shape your future. Highlights include:
  • "I fell for the charm of it all. I came to realize the intimacy of a smaller college better fit my educational goals. As an art major, choosing to get a solid liberal arts education vs going to art school was risky. For the past twenty years that I have taught art, I have found that my Albion training has served me very well." - Wendi, ’83
  • "From the day I moved in, it was easy to call Albion College home. Class sizes that were small, professors who knew me by name, a challenging but balanced curriculum, the leadership opportunities within my sorority, and my study abroad program have shaped the person I have become today." - Lisa, ’87
  • "When I visited Albion I was impressed and decided to apply for admission. I studied at Albion for four wonderful years, was president of my sorority, Delta Zeta, and on Panhellenic Council. I very quickly knew I had made the right decision after just a few weeks on campus, and never regretted my decision." - Joyce, ’53
Stay tuned for future opportunities to share your Albion stories and memories in future editions of Britonline.
