Print and Electronic Media—Students interested in writing, editing, layout and broadcasting may wish to take advantage of several campus opportunities. Students interested in journalism may work for The Pleiad, an online campus news source, or The Albionian, the yearbook. The campus literary journal is The Albion Review, which publishes poetry, prose and artwork by students, faculty and campus visitors; it is edited entirely by students. The campus radio station, WLBN, broadcasts on a closed-circuit system as well as the Internet and is operated by students who serve as D.J.s, news and sports announcers, special reporters/interviewers, and station directors. All students enrolled at Albion College may audition.
Art Exhibits—The Art and Art History Department sponsors a series of art exhibits in the galleries of the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center that feature the work of nationally-known artists, art department faculty, alumni and art students. In addition, the College maintains a collection of prints, ceramics, glass, paintings and other art objects that are regularly displayed.
Music—Albion's Music Department offers diverse opportunities for performance and private study. The Concert Choir, Briton Singers, Symphony Orchestra, Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Ensemble and chamber ensembles are open by audition to all students. Private lessons in voice, piano, organ, guitar and all orchestral and band instruments are available to all students. Off-campus study and internships offer outstanding opportunities in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and abroad for students pursuing professional careers in music and related fields.
Theatre—Four major plays and several studio productions are staged each year. These are produced by the Theatre Department and the Albion College Players. All Albion students are invited to become involved in theatre activities. Under certain circumstances it is possible for students to receive credit for their participation. Internships with professional theatre groups and the broadcast media are possible in New York and Philadelphia, and Albion's other off-campus programs in the U.S. and abroad can provide new and different perspectives in the theatre.
