Albion College's summer-long renovation of “501,” the President’s Home at 501 East Michigan Avenue, yielded a glorious historic restoration and a 21st-century asset, all under one roof. From tiny details to major infrastructure, the house was updated to address values held by the College and its new president, Mauri Ditzler.
A brand-new piece of student art has become an instant historic detail of the Albion College President's Home at 501 East Michigan Avenue. Designed by Lauren Daniels, '16, and created by Kalamazoo-based stained glass artist Lee Klade, two transom windows have been mounted in an interior archway on the second-floor landing of the home, which was fully restored this summer.
"Hospitals that stay the most current with the changing industry are also the most successful," writes Matt Myers, '15, who completed an internship this summer at MidMichigan Health's MidMichigan Medical Center-Gratiot. "Much of this innovation comes from large multibillion-dollar, urban-based institutions. The issue at hand [at Gratiot] is to provide quality care to a rural community faced with different medical needs."
As an Albion College senior cross country runner, Michelle Samson is used to taking a few turns on the course en route to the finish line. Thanks to her work this summer on a nanontechnology project addressing water filtration—sponsored by chemistry professor Kevin Metz and the College's Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity—the biochemistry major from Allen Park may have altered the course of her career as well.
