Diverse, nurturing, inclusive, and pluralistic.
We’re the Office of Intercultural Affairs, and we’re committed to social justice and parity. We partner with the campus and larger community to increase cultural awareness, cultivate diversity, promote social justice, and create substantive intergroup partnerships.
Come see us. We’re found all over campus, but our office is located in suite 103 on the first floor of Ferguson Hall.
You can also visit our website. We keep it updated, so you’ll find the latest resources and information on diversity and social justice. Student organizations and events are featured. Get to know our students, explore our programming initiatives, and get involved.
The Office of Intercultural Affairs advocates for Albion College under-represented students and strives to engage all students in the work of diversity on a domestic and global level to grow personally and develop into interdependent citizens.
Beginning in the fall semester 2013, Intercultural Affairs will move to a new home at 1000 E. Porter St. (adjacent to the fraternities). Our new home will offer incredible new space for Intercultural Affairs, with expanded space for departmental programs and leadership development. There will be an Open House for the Albion College community at the beginning of the fall.
Welcome to the Office of Residential Life
Right where you need to be. To do everything.
Residential life. Let’s think about what that means. At Albion, we see these things as the core of everything you do. It’s how you meet new people. Where and how you relax. Or eat. Or spread a blanket on the lawn. It’s also where you pay attention to bigger things. Things that can guide your life after Albion, like cooperation and sustainability.
At the start, you’ll live in a traditional residence hall with lots of other first-year students. And you’ll share everything: rooms, study spaces, kitchen and laundry areas, bathrooms, and a common area with a lounge and a big screen. You’ll have plenty of places to study, and there’ll be lots of other things going on whenever you need a break from studying.
As you move up in class, you'll have a new range of options. You’ll be eligible to apply for an apartment, suite, annex, fraternity house, or special-interest housing (like the E-House or the I-Space) that fits your needs. But don’t worry, you’ll still be close to everything.
Welcome to Residential Life at Albion College
Albion College is a four-year residential college, which means you live on campus (in College-owned housing) through graduation. While at Albion you will find many learning opportunities provided through the residence halls that will enhance your more formal classroom learning. For example, sharing common living spaces with other students challenges each resident to develop communication and assertiveness skills. Students can also gain leadership and organizational skills through participation in various residence hall programs and staff positions.
The Office of Residential Life is pleased to provide the following information to help you prepare for a smooth transition to your new "home away from home."
Room assignments for first year students will be sent to your Albion College email address mid-July.
