Search Update: Mid-October Target for Preliminary Interviews
Monday, September 30, 2013
Presidential Search Committee Chair Mark Newell, '77, updated the Albion College community on the status of the search. "The Search Committee met on Tuesday, September 24, and selected a small number of candidates who are being invited to participate in confidential preliminary interviews with the Committee in mid-October."
On Tuesday, December 1, President Mauri Ditzler spoke with alumni from around the country in a live call-in event, during which he provided an Albion College update and shared exciting news from both the campus and town.
Steve Klein, vice president for enrollment management, and Matt Arend, director of athletics, joined the president on the call, and members of the College's Institutional Advancement team took questions from alumni participants.
If you missed the call, a complete recording of the conversation is available below.
Thank you for participating and listening, and for your questions!
Just One More Photo Contest
Albion College, we want to see how active you are.
For the spring 2014 semester, we're sponsoring a photo contest featuring you, your friends, and what you do for fun on and off campus. It's a way to show the "Just One More" spirit at Albion.
Take a photo of you and your friends in the stands at an athletic game, singing along at the Big Show, or making faces during Day of Woden. We have some specific photo contests going on around big events this semester, but there's also an all-event category going on through Commencement. So snap away and submit!
Now for the nitty-gritty.
Categories, Deadlines and Prizes
Each big event on campus has a deadline and prize for the photo contest. There's also the Just One More Event photo contest, which can be from any event this semester (Day of Woden, Elkin Isaac, Anchor Splash, etc.).
Commencement: Congratulations to our winner, Wally Kacher, '14. View the winning photo.
Just One More Event: Congratulations to our winner, Alex Yaw, '14. View the winning photo.
Each photo submission will be judged on creativity and displaying the spirit of the event. One winner for each category will be chosen two days after the deadline, and will be announced on the College's Facebook Page and Twitter account.
Rules for Entry
Photo submissions only accepted from current Albion students.
Photos must be from an Albion-sponsored organization, club, athletic, academic, or Union Board event -- except for the spring break category.

Alex Yaw, '14: Promoting Healthy Lives, Transforming Hers
Spending a portion of the break between fall and spring semester in Honduras with Global Medical Brigades each of the last three years has given Alex Yaw the perspective to overcome the most difficult day. The second baseman for the Albion College softball team is quick to say she wouldn’t be happy if she didn’t produce a base hit in a doubleheader, but the conditions she has witnessed while working to provide health care and development assistance to poor communities in Central America are enough to cure any negative feelings.
An Albion College education. It's hands-on. It's the liberal arts. It's career readiness. It's providing you the knowledge, skills, and experiences you'll need to succeed in college, in your career, and in your life.
