Students Right at Home in New Journey House
Albion students regularly use a wide range of spiritual spaces on campus; now, they have a new home base as well. Journey House, at 1000 E.

Sustainability Theme Year 2013-2014
It’s about the food we eat.
The water we drink.
The shelter we live in.
The energy we use.
The footprint we leave.
And the future we build.
For the 2013-2014 academic-year, Albion College focuses its collective attention on sustainability as part of an interdisciplinary education that is designed for those who will be engaged in solving today’s and tomorrow’s social, environmental and economic challenges.
Each month of the 2013-2014 Sustainability Theme Year will feature events, speakers, films, service opportunities and a monthly discussion where interested students, faculty, staff and community members can reflect on a particular issue.
But sustainability at Albion College is more than a theme; it is an institutional priority. Throughout the year and beyond we'll learn together, reflect together, and act together to make decisions in our daily lives, on our campus, and in our community that ignite and sustain a passion for a healthy, diverse and sustainable world.
