"Studying Spanish and living in a Spanish-speaking country are two different things entirely, and I cannot stress enough how important it’s been to spend this past semester in Spain," writes Kailey Henderson, '18, who has studied abroad this fall in an intensive Spanish language and culture studies program at the University of Alicante.
"In November, our first-year seminar, A Sense of Place: Albion & the American Dream, traveled to Washington, D.C. to discover America’s history," writes professor Wesley Arden Dick. "On November 5, our students were exploring the national ‘World War II Memorial’ when we encountered a gentleman who was wearing a hat with the insignia USS West Virginia. Hoping to talk with a World War II veteran, we introduced ourselves and he identified himself as Adone ‘Cal’ Calderone from Canton, Ohio."
Eugene Robinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post, will bring his unique insights on life in America to Albion’s 2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation and Community Celebration. He will present "We're Someplace We've Never Been: Race, Diversity, and the New America" as part of the Monday, January 30, event, scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Bohm Theatre in downtown Albion.
