A Language Learning and Living Area for Students and Teaching Assistants
Albion College offers language-learning housing for foreign language teaching assistants and language students in French, German, and Spanish. This residential space, called the I-Space, serves as a "living laboratory" where Albion College students can practice their conversational skills with fellow students and native speakers.
Students pledge to speak the intended language within their living quarters. Eligible students can earn .25 unit for residency in I-Space for one semester and active participation in weekly programs in the student's respective language house as well as in cultural events for all I-Space residents. Students add this course during the first week of classes, once they have moved in.
In fall 2012, the I-Space relocated to Fiske House on the corner of Cass and Ingham streets. The I-Space no longer occupies a floor in Whitehouse Hall or the annex at 1112 E. Porter St.
