The College was honored at a Washington, D.C., event November 18 for being named a 2014 recipient of a Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award for Campus Internationalization. Key to the national recognition is the College's role in the relationship between the City of Albion and its Sister Cities of Noisy-le-Roi and Bailly, France. President Mauri Ditzler participated on an international education panel as part of the day's activities.
A world premiere by playwright Sean Michael Welch, the comedy Thread of the Warp will be on stage at Albion College from November 20-23 in the Herrick Theatre, located within the Dow Recreation and Wellness Center. The play begins at 8 p.m. Thursday the 20th through Saturday the 22nd, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday the 23rd.
It's not often that poured concrete and mozzarella cheese are course materials—let alone in the same course—but one Albion College first-year seminar recently whipped up some of each. This October the class, offered by professor of women's and gender studies Trisha Franzen, built a wood-fired pizza oven in the Whitehouse Nature Center, presenting it as a gift to the College.
