Bieber, Malecke Balance Soccer, Monetary Policy
Albion College students are noted for their ability to juggle their academic and extracurricular pursuits, though the balancing act performed by Andy Bieber and Evan Malecke this fall may stand alone.
The E&M students went to class each day until about 4 p.m., when they would go to practice or matches as midfielders for Albion’s men’s soccer team. After soccer, the juniors would have just enough time to grab dinner and clean up before spending hours sifting through papers and debating economic policy with members of Albion’s Fed Challenge team as it prepared for its Nov. 16 regional competition in Chicago.
