Posting Policy

Postings

Albion College provides authorized spaces around campus for the sharing of written communication by College community members that does not interfere with the orderly appearance or operation of the College. Postings must be in good taste and conform to expectations Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in postings advertising any event.

All postings in campus buildings must be put on public area bulletin boards. Respect should be shown by not covering others' postings. Outdated materials will be regularly removed by College staff.

The Vulgamore Hall showcase can be reserved through the Campus Programs and Organizations Office by campus organizations for displays and event advertising, subject to availability.

Residence Hall student room door postings must remain only on doors and be kept to a minimum for fire safety purposes.

Postings on windows, walls, doors, trees, sidewalks, lamp posts, etc., are not permitted unless previously granted special permission by the Campus Programs and Organizations Office. Removal of these postings and repair of any damage caused may be done at the expense of the individual or group responsible.

The Rock

The Rock on the campus quadrangle has served for many years as a place for student and campus group expression on various issues and to advertise campus events. Painting on the Rock must be in good taste and conform to the expectations Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in advertising on the Rock for events. 

Only the Rock and its pedestal may be painted. Individuals or groups painting the rock should refrain from painting the outer circular sidewalk area, so as not to create a situation where wet paint is tracked into nearby buildings. Painting and/or graffiti of any kind is not permitted on other College property including sidewalks (except for chalk markings), streets, buildings, and plantings. Any costs incurred in cleaning/repairing/replacing such surfaces, including the outer circular sidewalk area around the Rock will be billed to the responsible individual(s) or group(s).

While the Rock cannot be reserved, groups should attempt to coordinate efforts so that all who wish may have an opportunity to use the Rock.

Sheet Signs

The sheet sign wall exists between the Kellogg Center and Robinson Hall for the display of sheet signs. Sheet signs must be in good taste and conform to expectations that Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in advertised events. While spaces on the wall cannot be reserved, individuals and groups should attempt to coordinate efforts so that all who wish may have an opportunity to use the sheet sign wall. Sheet signs may not be displayed in other campus locations unless granted special permission by the Campus Programs and Organizations Office.

Organizations are responsible for taking down their signs in a timely manner. If signs are left hanging for long periods of time, College staff retains the right to remove.

Scholarship and Academic Achievement

The first and foremost priority of Albion College is academic excellence. Helping members achieve academic excellence is also a primary objective of the Greek community. Each fraternity and sorority places strong emphasis on academic performance. Also, Gamma Sigma Alpha, a national academic Greek honor society, is a Greek organization on campus working to further that goal. As a result of all of these efforts, the Greek grade point average consistently remains at or above the all-campus average!

P-250 Scholarship 2017

The P250 President Bernard T. Lomas Endowed Scholarship - logo. The P250 Endowed Scholarship was created to recognize outstanding student contributions in the areas of leadership and service to the College and the Greater Albion Community.

History

A group of Albion College students came together during the 1971 academic year and collected money to establish an endowed fund to honor former Albion College President Bernard T. Lomas. Those students raised more than $250,000 to create the Bernard T. Lomas Project P250 Endowed Scholarship. The number 250 comes directly from the $250,000 raised in endowment funds.

Purpose

The purpose of the Project 250 Scholarship is to encourage students to contribute to significant improvements of self, campus, and community. Award recipients will be determined:

  • Based on the applicant’s broad range of activities and without regard to financial need.
  • On the basis of the applicant’s leadership contributions as measured by the quality of the applicant’s involvement with activities and organizations.
  • On the contribution to the applicant’s personal goals in higher education.

Award & Eligibility

The 2017 Scholarship amount will be $10,000 – $12,500 per recipient and 7 scholarships will be awarded.

To be eligible, students must be currently enrolled at Albion College and have obtained Junior class status, defined as completing 14 academic units. Graduating Seniors are not eligible, but Seniors who are returning for an additional semester(s) may apply.

It is anticipated that the Project 250 Endowed Scholarship for 2017-18 will be $10,000-$12,500 per recipient. Because of the value of this scholarship it may impact your financial aid eligibility. If you are receiving other Albion College assistance those funds may be replaced with the P250 Scholarship. We encourage students to apply for the P250 Scholarship to be recognized for their leadership achievements and contributions while understanding that any funds awarded may replace Albion College grant assistance.

Recipients of the Scholarship will have their funds applied to their college account in two installments, half of the money will be applied in the fall semester and the other half applied in the spring semester. You must be a full time student, and enrolled both semesters in order to receive the full funding.

Application

To apply, a candidate must complete the following three items:

  • Online application form (with embedded essay questions) found on this web site.
  • Completed grade and social status release form, turned into the Campus Programs and Organizations Office located on the 3rd Floor of the Kellogg Center.
  • Two personal recommendations, one of which must be a Albion College Faculty or Staff member, who can provide additional insight to the Selection Committee on your extra-curricular contributions.

Selection Process

A selection committee comprised of faculty and staff members will review applications and determine the recipients of the P250 Scholarship. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the Sleight Leadership Dessert Awards Program.

Recipient Expectations

P250 applicants are expected to attend the Sleight Leadership Dessert Awards Program to either support the new scholarship winners or to accept a scholarship. In addition, recipients of the P250 Scholarship will be asked to write a thank you note to be sent to Alumni that were instrumental in establishing the P250 Endowed Scholarship.

Note: Revision of the P250 Scholarship

The College has worked with Alumni who were part of the creation of the P250 Endowed Scholarship to revise the application process, eligibility, quantity and amount of the Scholarship prize. These new parameters create a process to the P250 Scholarship that is different than in years past.
