International Student Coffee Hour Toggle Accordion

Spend time with Albion’s vibrant international community. Students and their friends can meet virtually for global discussions with Albion’s international community. Come with coffee and desserts, as well as plenty of conversation. All are invited to attend, and Albion faculty and staff often join the conversation.

Global Student Organizations Toggle Accordion

Join the International Student Union (ISU) at various programs each year, such as dinners, dances, movies, and cultural activities.  Their meetings are designed to show the international flavor of Albion’s campus and to encourage an appreciation of international relations among Albion’s American students.

Join Asian Cultural Engagment (ACE) at events such as lunar new year, mid-autumn festival, and more.

Fun in Albion Toggle Accordion

Victory Park

Victory park is located just blocks away from Albion’s campus, off of Hannah Street. It has plenty of room to play frisbee, as well as a playground, basketball courts, a river walk, and state of the art disc golf course. Sledding in the winter is an all-time favorite, you can get a tray from Baldwin Hall. Cardboard classic sledding competition is in late January.


An Albion favorite for when you need a break from Baldwin. This restaurant is known for its pizza, but also has a selection of other American type foods. Every month Cascarelli’s hosts “Jazz at Relli’s,” with music from the Albion College Jazz Band.

Bowling Alley

Just a few miles from campus you’ll find a great and college student friendly venue for all bowling needs. In addition to the Union Board sponsored “Boo Bowling,” you can head to University Lanes on your own for a fun experience off campus.

Other fun things Toggle Accordion

A student research program (SRP) that aims specifically at first year students to give them early hand-on research experience in a variety of subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Arts, History.

A mid-autumn festival hosted by Asian Awareness Group to celebrate one of the most important event in China and Vietnam. We provide snacks like dumplings and moon cakes, games like badminton, and fun activities like painting paper lanterns.
