2016-17 Student Handbook

Foreword

The purpose of the Albion College Student Handbook is twofold. It informs students of opportunities for involvement — with people, special programs, and issues — that are available at Albion College. It describes programs and services that will help increase the quality of every student’s educational experience. The handbook also informs the College community of many of the policies governing students while at Albion College. These policies express expectations of behavior, convey a respect for community, and provide for the protection of the rights of the individual. Each student or student group is held responsible for the policies and procedures of the College that are currently in effect or, from time to time, put into effect by the appropriate authorities of Albion College. Please be aware that the handbook (1) is not a complete statement of all policies, procedures, rules, and regulations of Albion College; and (2) that the College reserves the right to change any procedures, policies, programs, and so on, that appear in the Student Handbook. The College will give notice to students of changes within a reasonable amount of time. Albion College acknowledges that best practices which include state and federal laws and/or regulations, continue to change, e.g., 2013 Reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Consequently, if College policies and procedures conflict with or are not in line with current best practices, then current best practices, including state and federal laws and/or regulations, will take precedence over conflicting College policies and procedures.

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.

To all students:

What an exciting time to be at Albion College!

As we consider the challenges that must be addressed by the national and international communities, we are reminded of the importance of colleges like ours. Like they have done so many times before, graduates of private, residential, liberal arts colleges will provide the leadership and wisdom to resolve the tough issues of our day. Since Albion is one of the best of this select group, in only a few short years the world will look to you to do remarkable things.

I hope you are expecting great joy in the weeks and months ahead. College should be lots of fun. At the same time, I hope you are expecting repeated challenges. In fact, you should insist that we push you to do your very best work. Embrace the opportunity to pursue excellence in the classroom, on stage, on the field, in your sorority or fraternity, and every place in between. Never again will you be in an environment where everything is aligned and designed to help you develop as a person of influence.

Explore all the opportunities available and then create some of your own. Work as hard as you can in all of your classes and then spend some time thinking about how those classes inform each other. Learn to persuade your classmates and then learn to be persuaded by them. Find ways to learn and develop through things that others are doing only as recreation. Ask questions of everyone and give your best ideas to those who ask your opinion.

Use this document as one of many handbooks to help you get the greatest value for the time and resources you invest in Albion College. We are committed to your success, so take advantage of all we have to offer. We will enjoy watching your Albion successes, and, in a few years, we will take pride in what you are doing as a force for good around the world.

Mauri Ditzler
President

For good times with a smart purpose.

Accounting Society

Prepare for a career in accounting, and then network with reps from firms all over Michigan at our annual Spring Banquet. We meet regularly for discussions relevant to our field, so you’ll be ready to make intelligent, meaningful contributions. Learn more

Art Club

We’re devoted to the visual arts. Actively. We get together regularly to make art and to learn from visiting artists—we often bring them in for lectures. And each semester, you can join us for off-campus trips to art galleries, museums, and more.

Astronomy Club

Sure, we look at the skies a lot. But it’s not all star parties and dome events (that’s where we use the telescope in the Observatory). You can also join us for movie nights, guest speakers, and trips to planetariums and other observatories. And you don’t have to know anything about stars to sign up.

Athletic Training Club

Our mission is to further the educational experience of members who are interested in the field of Athletic Training.  We support members by providing opportunities for out of the classroom experiences that further their education in the discipline of Athletic Training. We also seek to educate the general public on the purpose of a Certified Athletic Trainer and promote possible career opportunities that exist for individuals in the field of study.  We also seek to utilize the skills and knowledge of our membership to promote wellness in the Albion College and city communities.   

Delta Sigma Pi

Be a part of a professional fraternity known nationwide for how it enhances the college experience. You’ll benefit from scholarship, socializing, and links to the commercial world. We also emphasize research and practice, because we’re always working toward a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture, and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.

Ethnic Studies Scholars

If you’re passionate about ethnic studies, we’d love to have you check us out. We’re an intellectual group, dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge in our field. You’ll enjoy smart conversations with like-minded individuals, along with support for your academic achievement, research, and productivity. 

Geology Club

We bring together students who are interested in geology for field trips (we like to learn in the field) and social events (we also like to socialize). You’ll also have a chance to give back to our community and spread the word about geology by visiting local elementary schools for educational outreach.

Investment Club

Learning about stock selection methods can be fun. And profitable. In 2012, we managed around $20,000. All of our profits are "rolled over" to establish a scholarship fund for economics and management majors. Besides meetings, we also take an annual trip to Chicago to visit investment firms and exchanges. All majors are welcome.

Macroeconomics Club

We like to take it further. So we practice macroeconomics outside the classroom, participating in things like group research on monetary policy. (Wow.) Academic readings and professional guidance are also part of our program, so if you’re driven and ready to learn, we’re for you.

Marketing Association

We’re a chapter of the American Marketing Association—and we’re your link to faculty and business people who can help you prepare for a career in marketing. You’ll build valuable relationships and deepen your understanding of the field.  

Model United Nations

We’re open to all students, and we like to travel. (Recently, it’s been to Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, and Athens.) There is no better way to learn about issues in international affairs than through UN simulations with other colleges and universities. That’s what we’re all about.

Pre-Dental Club

The club’s purpose is to provide programs that educate members about the field of dentistry and to allow members to network with each other regarding the dental school application process.

Pre-Vet Club

The purpose of the Albion College Pre-Veterinary Club is to provide programs that educate members about the field of veterinary medicine and to allow members to network with each other regarding the school of veterinary medicine application process.

Adult Children of Alcoholics

Adult Children of Alcoholics is an anonymous Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of women and men who grew up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home. We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge our common experiences. We discover how childhood affected us in the past and influences us in the present. We take positive action. By practicing the Twelve Steps, focusing on The Solution, and accepting a loving Higher Power of our understanding, we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.

It is for those individuals who feel that their lives have been affected another individual's alcohol and/or drug problem and are seeking support from their peers. It is an open meeting and all are welcome to attend.

Adult Children of Alcoholics Meetings are on Wednesday every week from 8:30-9:30 p.m. at 711 Michigan Ave (the white house next to Wesley).

Any questions? Please don't hesitate to contact Amanda Bode at or Kiernan Gamel at or call 629-0236.

Albion College Football Tailgating Policy

Albion College permits tailgating in an authorized location prior to and after home football games. Tailgating is defined as parking a motorized vehicle and consuming food and beverages, which may include alcoholic beverages, outside the sports event area. The Ferguson parking lot is the designated tailgating area for all home football games (overflow tailgating for Homecoming will be at Bellemont Manor).

The safety of our students and visitors is of the utmost importance to the College; therefore the following guidelines are established for tailgating.

  1. Tailgating must occur only in the Ferguson parking lot, which will be clearly marked by signs.

  2. Tailgating cannot start before four hours prior to the beginning of any home football game and must end within two hours following the end of the game.

  3. Alcoholic beverages are limited to single-serving, non-glass containers. No common sources (e.g., kegs, beer balls or other large quantity containers) are permitted.

  4. Serving alcohol to or consumption of alcohol by minors (those under 21 years of age) is a violation of state and federal law and Albion College policy. Michigan law states that underage drinking is illegal everywhere—on public or private property, indoors or out—including tailgating.

  5. Individuals consuming alcohol may be asked to provide legal identification and proof of age to a campus safety officer or local law enforcement officer.

  6. Carrying an open container of alcohol on public streets or sidewalks is illegal, regardless of age. When guests leave the designated tailgate area, they must leave alcoholic beverages in the designated tailgate area.

  7. No alcoholic beverages may be taken into any athletic facility or into the sports event area.

  8. Rules regarding tailgating will be posted on the Albion College Web site and a flyer stating those rules will be distributed to guests who enter the designated tailgating area.

Frequently Asked Questions

As at other colleges and universities in the country, Albion College has prepared for potential exposure of members of the College community to the H1N1 influenza virus. Information regarding these preparations appears below. If you have any questions, please contact Student Health Services (SHS) at 517/629-0220.

Albion College Student Health Services staff have been monitoring information from the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the H1N1 outbreak and have also been in contact with state, county, and local officials. Additional information as well as regular updates on the College’s approach will be available on the Web site.

Testing and Treatment for H1N1 Influenza

The World Health Organization has declared a worldwide pandemic based on the spread of the new H1N1 virus, not on the severity of illness caused by the virus.

According to the Michigan Department of Community Health Web site, influenza testing will only be conducted for “public health case investigations (e.g., ICU hospitalizations, severely ill pregnant women, patients with unusual and severe presentations, and deaths) and for congregate setting outbreak/cluster investigations.”

Because our student population will not be tested for the H1N1 influenza when they present to Student Health Services with flu symptoms, the initial medical approach to care will be similar to that for other flu viruses. For more treatment information, please see the Symptoms and Care page.

Personal Responsibility to Promote Good Health

College community members are urged to continuously practice good health and hygiene habits.

  • Follow good cough and sneeze etiquette by coughing or sneezing into a tissue (or if a tissue is unavailable, to cover your mouth with your upper arm).
  • Wash hands often with soap and warm water.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer especially if soap and water are not available.
  • Stay home except to seek medical attention when you have flu-like symptoms.

All members of the College community should exercise personal responsibility, including eating right, getting enough sleep, not sharing utensils, and not drinking out of the same container with others.

Preventative Measures

  1. The College Crisis Management Team continues to monitor and implement best practices with regard to health issues. This team will continue to recommend action steps as needed.
  2. As the fall semester opened, an educational campaign began with the posting of “Cover Your Coughs and Sneezes” and “Wash Your Hands” signs around campus.
  3. The Student Health Services staff ordered seasonal flu vaccines in anticipation of offering these vaccines to the College community in mid- to late October. At this time, the vaccine for the H1N1 influenza virus is being developed. To monitor progress, see the CDC Web site.
  4. Facilities Operations staff mounted hand sanitizer dispensers in many high traffic areas around campus.
  5. Common H1N1 questions and answers are available on this Web site.
  6. Individual hand sanitizer bottles and educational material were distributed to all students via their campus mail boxes.
  7. Anti-bacterial soap and tissue boxes are being distributed to student rooms in on-campus housing.
  8. Postcards explaining the College approach to H1N1 influenza are being mailed to parents at their home addresses.

No Current Plans to Cancel Classes, Programs, Athletic Events, or Travel

Classes will continue, as will programs, public events (including athletic events), and off-campus travel, and study abroad programs. In the event that any aspect of this approach changes, the campus community members and other constituents affected by the change will be notified. Faculty and staff members and students who experience flu-like symptoms should not attend work, class, athletic practice, College events, or travel on College-related business. Individuals who are unable to attend required activities due to illness are expected to consult with their teaching faculty, coach, athletic trainer, supervisor, and/or medical practitioner (as appropriate). (Students: Please note that class attendance and athletic event participation policies are set by individual teaching faculty and coaches, respectively, and these personnel should be consulted regarding absences from these activities.) This proactive approach will promote the overall health of the campus community, so thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Albion Today

What is Albion Today?

Albion Today is a daily electronic communication tool that allows students, faculty and staff to communicate information to other students, faculty and staff thru a daily distribution of information utilizing the Albion College e-mail system. The concept behind Albion Today is to compile information and send just one e-mail per day on announcement topics.

How do I submit items to Albion Today?

You may submit your information utilizing a Web form. To add an announcement, simply click the "Submit Item" box located at the bottom of this page. Fill in all of the information boxes and hit the "Submit Event" box when complete. After hitting the submit button you will get a summary of your submission, you must hit the Submit Event button a second time in order for you message to post to the database.

Keep in mind; the name of the contact person along with his/her e-mail address will accompany the event or announcement information. A message will not be sent without a contact name and e-mail address.

Please be brief and concise in your submission of information. One message will be sent daily and will include all messages for faulty, staff and students. Unfortunately, Albion Today cannot accept pictures, clip art, or file attachments. Please be sure to double-check your submission to make sure your information is complete. In the case of events, Who, What, Where, and When are important pieces for each entry. Also you should check spelling and grammar, as your message will appear just as you submit it.

Note: First time users will most likely encounter a security certificate warning. Those users using Mozilla Firefox as an internet browser may experience an error similar to "connection is Untrusted." To continue to use the Firefox browser, you must install the certificate exemption. For instructions please visit: http://www2.albion.edu/it/networking/175-configure-firefox-to-trust-albion-college-web-certificates .

If you are using Internet Explorer you will get a message that says "There is a problem with this website's security certificate." All you need to do is click "Continue to this Website." Once you click that option you will be directed to the Albion Today submission page. Keep in mind you will need to do this process each time you shut down Internet Explorer and restart.

If you are using another browser or if you need further assistance with the installing of the exemption certificate, please contact the Information Technology Helpdesk at 517/629-0479.

What are the deadlines for submitting information?

Announcements will be sent daily at 10:00 AM. In order to get your announcement included in the e-mail you must have your announcement item(s) submitted by 8:00 AM the day the information is to be sent. Keep in mind you can submit items several days in advance so you don't have to wait until the day before or day of to submit.

Albion Today now has the ability to send messages on Saturday and Sunday. However, in order for a message to be sent on Saturday or Sunday, you must submit your item prior to 8:00 AM on Friday (the Friday before the weekend you want your message sent). No one will be available to approve messages on Saturday or Sunday which is why you must have your item submitted by Friday morning, 8:00 AM.

Please know that the Albion Today will be compiled and distributed only once each day. It is important you plan ahead to make sure you meet the appropriate deadline. If you forget to add an announcement or make an error, you will have to wait until the following day to make the correction. Only one Albion Today e-mail message will be sent per day.

*Utilizing electronic media, certain situations may occur outside the control of the Campus Programs and Organizations Office. If for any reason technology or other issues prevent the distribution from occurring at 10:00 a.m., the information will be sent as quickly as possible once the problem(s) have been rectified.

What if the information I submitted has a mistake?

You cannot correct mistakes in the announcement through the web site. To make a correction please call the Office of Campus Programs at 517-629-0433 and ask for an Albion Today editor. The Albion Today Editor will be able to delete the message(s) with the incorrect information. The person who submitted the information will then have to re-submit a new entry with the corrected copy/information.

Who can use Albion Today?

Albion Today is an internal communication vehicle and is not intended for use by members outside of the Albion College community. All items must be submitted by a current Albion College Student, Faculty, or Staff member.

Albion Today is not to be used for advertisements of external businesses or organizations.  There are only two exceptions to this guideline. The first exception is when a department/program/student organization is sponsoring an event or activity that takes place at a business location.  The second exception is when the event or activity is a co-sponsored initiative with an external organization.  Even in those cases, the campus department/program/student organization must be featured prominently in the activity and listed as the event or activity sponsor.   If you are not sure that an entry meets the above guidelines, please call the Campus Programs and Organization Office. 

What are the guidelines for Albion Today?

Albion Today should be used to advertise upcoming events and forward announcements that the general population would find helpful. As with any other posting on campus, submitted items must be in good taste and conform to the expectations Albion College holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in postings advertising any event. Personal notices in general, and especially those listing “For Sale” as well as “Lost and Found” items, will not be approved.

Notices intended for a small population or to a particular group should also not be placed in the Albion Today. Organizations should not use Albion today to post weekly and/or routine meeting times. Please take the time to establish organizational distribution lists to communicate with other club and organizational members.

The Campus Programs and Organizations Office has the right to approve or deny submissions based upon acceptable use of the Albion Today information distribution and expectations of Albion College.

Is Albion Today the same as the campus calendar?

The Albion Today is intended to be a reminder of events and listings of up-to-date information. The Albion Today does not replace the campus calendar in any way. For a complete listing of events on a particular day, please view the campus calendar at http://www.albion.edu/calendar.
