Phishing occurs when someone attempts to use electronic communication such as email to fraudulently acquire confidential information such as your password by pretending to be a trusted person or part of a trusted group.
How does phishing work?
Phishing is a form of social engineering, the art of manipulating people into sharing confidential information or performing a desired action. Phishing attacks are commonly transmitted via email and social network sites like Facebook and Twitter.
How will they encourage me to share my information?
Phishers typically present a plausible scenario and often take advantage of the recipient’s fear, greed or lust. They also often present a sense of urgency. Examples include messages that:
Tell you that your account was misused by you and will be disabled
Tell you that your account was compromised and will be disabled
Tell you that your Mailbox has reached its limit and will be disabled
What might the phisher ask for?
Account number, card number, PIN, access code
Personally identifiable information like your date of birth, Social Security number or address
Confidential information like student records, financial records or technical information
Signs of a potential phishing attack
If the communication you receive exhibits any of the following, it may be a phishing attack.
You are asked for confidential information
You are asked to visit a web page with a suspicious or unexpected address
You do not recognize the sender or the sender does not normally contact you
You recognize the sender, but the sender’s email address, alias or name spelling are unusual
You’re told something negative will occur if you don’t supply the requested information
The writing style is unusual
How to protect yourself
Ask yourself whether you should be sharing the information requested
If the supposed sender is someone or an organization known to you, contact them to discuss the request
Use a browser that alerts you when you attempt to visit known phishing websites
Before you click a link, inspect it
If unsure of a link’s authenticity, use a link you know or find the link via a search engine

Check Delivery: During the Academic year, student pay checks are delivered to your Kellogg Center post office box by 10:30 a.m. on the pay date shown above

If you have any questions, please call Angie Konkle in the Student Payroll/Human Resources Office (x-0203).
Note: In order to work, you must be deemed eligible to work on campus by Student Employment. If you have held any other campus job you are all set. If you have never worked on campus before, you should complete the student employment registration process now. For more information on how to register for student employment please visit the Student Employment web site at: http://www.albion.edu/hr/student-employment
Albion College understands student employees are students first and employees second. Students are expected to meet their commitments to the employment arrangement, arriving on time, completing work during scheduled hours and otherwise acting with dignity and respect for supervisors, staff, other students and other members of the College Community.
Albion College does not tolerate discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace. Complaints should be referred immediately to the attention of the employee’s supervisor, manager, department chairperson or directly to the Office of Human Resources, 629-0205.
Summer student positions are limited to 40 hour per work week for all campus jobs. The work week runs from Sunday through Saturday regardless of when a pay period begins or ends.
Statement of Non-Discrimination
Albion College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability, as protected by law, in all educational programs and activities, admission of students, and conditions of employment.
Albion College is historically related with the United Methodist Church, the modern form of the denomination that founded the College in 1835. Albion College focuses on Christian unity and understanding diversity within Christianity. There are many different Christian groups on campus. In addition, people from other religious backgrounds are equally included in spiritual life at Albion College. There is no preferential treatment; the College has a core commitment to supporting a spiritually diverse campus and promoting academic freedom.
Faculty Resolution on College-Church Relationship
The Faculty of Albion College recognizes the long history of social activism, service, support for education, and tradition of character formation in the United Methodist Church. The United Methodist Church, both past and present, is internally diverse. Its members and leadership advocate a range of different ethical and political positions. Albion's Faculty interprets the College's United Methodist affiliation in accord with this diversity.
Therefore, the College's affiliation does not imply exclusive faculty endorsement of United Methodist social teachings or theological doctrines as presented in the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church. Albion does not integrate the social teachings of the Book of Discipline into its curriculum or treat them as expectations concerning the behavior of students, faculty, or staff.
One example of the faculty's neutrality regarding internal disagreements of the United Methodist Church concerns the theology and ethics of sexual orientation. Albion is committed to maintaining a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. In light of the diversity of opinion and ongoing discussions within United Methodism about the theology and ethics of homosexual practice, marriage, and ordination (represented by groups such as Reconciling Ministries Network), Albion's faculty does not endorse the teachings of the Book of Discipline on these matters. Instead, the faculty seeks to facilitate fruitful ongoing dialogue about them.
By vote of the faculty members of Albion College, March 2015
Eddy was born in the Netherlands and still currently resides there, but much of his early education with horses began in England, where he worked with hunters, ponies, show jumpers and military horses, and then in Germany where he studied at the Westfälische Reit un Fahrschule in Münster. After three years there, he completed his Bereiter exam in Warendorf. While in the Army, Eddy was stationed at the Dutch Royal stables in The Hague, where he met colonel Geza Von Hazslinkszky, whose instruction had a big influence on Eddy. (Sidenote: Past attendees of our Charles de Kunffy symposiums may recognize Geza's name from many of the model photos that Charles uses to describe the classical horsemen that have influenced his education as well!) During his years as an instructor at the dressage stables of Jan Nijland at Den Dolder in the Netherlands, Eddy had the opportunity to work up to the Grand Prix level with multiple horses. In 1979 he became the national Dutch champion in the Z-class with his horse Monarch, and in 1981 was the Dutch champion in the small tour classes with him as well. As an international dressage judge with the highest possible rating (FEI 5*), Eddy has been able to be a member of the ground jury for many prestigious events, including the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses in Verden, the FEI World Cup Dressage, and most recently the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
Albion College is pleased to welcome Eddy de Wolff van Westerrode for the second time with the help of Dr. Rob van Wessum ("Equine All Sports Medicine" in Mason, MI), who has been bringing Eddy to Michigan for clinics the last few years.
Each day of the symposium will be spent at the Albion College Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center. Riding will take place in the newly rebuilt and improved Randi C. Heathman indoor arena. There will be bleacher seating for auditors. Riders may choose to do a full 45-minute lesson, or they may choose to "ride-a-test" of the dressage test of their choice, which will be judged by Eddy and then followed by a shorter lesson.
During the lunch break, auditors will be able to enjoy a lovely lunch at Baldwin Hall Cafe on the main campus of Albion College. The cafe offers a variety of menu options to cater to many different dietary needs. More information about the lunch offering may be found HERE. Lunch cost will be included in the auditor fee.
Riders may choose to either pre-order a boxed lunch to have at the equestrian center, or they are welcome to go to Baldwin Hall Cafe on campus. Their lunch cost is also included in the rider fee.
On Saturday, October 29, there will be a special evening reception and dinner event with Eddy on the main campus of Albion College. Pre-registration for the dinner is required. Beer & wine will be available with appetizers and social time followed by a nice dinner. Eddy has graciously offered to entertain a Question & Answer session during the dinner event. NOTE: The location has now changed and will be at Schuler's Restaurant in Marshall (about a 15 minute drive west from Albion.)
Riders and horses of all levels and abilities are encouraged to apply. Rider applications must be received by October 7, and riders will be notified by October 10 of their status. Instead of reserving spots first come first served, we place a deadline and then choose from the applicant pool in order to have a good variety of experience levels to appeal to auditors.
$325 per ride ($650 for both days)
$20/plate for Saturday night dinner reception (discount for clinic riders)
$15 optional videography service of your rides (includes DVD)
Cost includes 45-minute lesson, rider's lunch, overnight stabling in permanent 12' x 12' matted stall with automatic waterer, bedding, stall cleaning and feeding.

Courtyard Marriott Hotel
Construction is set to begin in October for the new 72-room Courtyard Marriott hotel that will sit between, S. Superior, S. Clinton, W. Porter and W. Center streets.
The hotel will serve as the centerpiece for a downtown renaissance that the college is proud to share in.
Financed by Saginaw doctor Sam Shaheen, '88, it's believed the new hotel will help revitalize the downtown and provide a place for College parents, guests and visitors to stay during school events.
Shaheen said talks about a downtown hotel have been ongoing since 2010, but it was the impetus of College President Mauri Ditzler that finally moved the project off the drawing board.
"This is about family," Shaheen said at the May groundbreaking. "We believe in what this means to the City, the College and the citizens of Albion."
Jerry White, Albion's vice president of finance and administration, said the College has made a $4 million investment from the school's endowment. In addition, a $1 million Michigan Economic Development Corporation grant will be used to help fund the project. All told, the hotel will cost between $7-9 million and is slated for completion by fall/winter 2017.

College employees should divulge no address, telephone, or other information from the Alumni/Donor database to non-College persons, unless appropriate College administrators determine that disclosure is required by law. An IA employee who receives a request for the contact information of a specific individual should offer to call the individual in question and request permission to share his / her contact information with the requester.
