Library Materials Will Be Renewed Through 8/31
April 28, 2020
We know many of you have Library materials you need to return. Because of the current situation, we will be renewing all checked out materials through August 31, 2020. When this change is made in our system, you will receive an email noting the new due date - if you have already returned items to the Library drop box, please disregard that notification. Because we are working remotely, we have not checked in items left in the drop box.
If you are on campus, or plan to be on campus over the summer, and would like to return materials, please place them in the Library's drop box, which is just outside the main entrance.
If you are a graduating senior or do not plan to return to campus in the future, you may mail Library materials before the August 31 due date to the following address:
ALBION COLLEGE LIBRARY
602 E CASS ST
ALBION, MI 49224
If you have any questions or concerns please email .
Extension of the Stay Home, Stay Safe Order Through May 15, 2020
April 24, 2020, 4:30 p.m.
From Lisa Locke, Director of Human Resources:
Today Governor Whitmer extended the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order through May 15, 2020. This means Albion College will continue to operate on-site limited to the identified critical workers in order to ensure our minimum basic operations are met as well as our basic infrastructure activities and continued support of remote teaching, learning and work activities.
Under the new order, effective on April 26, 2020 at 11:59 p.m., any individual able to medically tolerate a face covering must wear a covering over his or her nose and mouth—such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief—when in any enclosed public space. Masks will be required for those visiting Campus Safety, The Kellogg Center and other enclosed public spaces on campus.
To comply with this added requirement, Albion College will be providing non-medical grade face coverings to those employees performing on-site work. We are still working out the details of when and where those will be distributed and will share that information as soon as it is available.
Thank you for your commitment to Albion College. Please stay well and stay safe.
Retrieving Personal Belongings
April 15, 2020
When classes transitioned to their current online format and College residences closed, many students left personal belongings in their residence hall rooms. We know that many of you are anxious to retrieve your belongings and check out of your room, but Governor Whitmer's expansion of the stay at home order has made travel restrictions even more stringent. The current order will last through April 30th, but could be extended again. Once the order is lifted, Residential Life will communicate a plan for students to return in an orderly fashion to retrieve their belongings. Students should continue to monitor their Albion College email address and the Albion College COVID-19 webpage for additional information.
