In order to ensure that we are able to continue to offer on-campus learning to our students and to keep the entire Albion community safe, we have made the difficult decision that Grand Getaway, Oct. 2 - 4, 2020, will not include any Albion College on-site or virtual programming. This means that we cannot offer the receptions, the Presidential Townhall, faculty, staff and student interactions, the art and interior design tour, GRANDx and the group walk.
Grand Hotel will continue to offer you the special Albion College room rate for Oct. 2 - 4, 2020. If you decide to keep your reservation and stay at the hotel; the $50 Grand Getaway Scholarship Fund donation (per person, per night) will be removed from your room bill.
If you decide to cancel your reservation (with our college and the hotel), 10 days prior to your arrival; you will receive a full refund. This is an exception to the hotel's standard cancellation clause and you will not be charged the $50 transaction fee.
Sadly the charter bus is being cancelled. We will issue full refunds, it may take up to two weeks to show on your credit card statement.
We are very grateful to Dan Musser, ’86 and Grand Hotel staff for making Grand Getaway possible for these past ten years. We know they are doing excellent work keeping guests safe during this time. I hope you know how disappointed we are to not be on the island with you in October.
