It’s Been a Banner 2012 for Professor Geoffrey Cocks in the History Department

He had a voiceover role in a documentary, Room 237, that was selected for the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. In addition, his newest book, The State of Health: Illness in Nazi Germany, was published only last month by Oxford University Press.


The Albion College community is invited to join the History Department on Tuesday, March 27, at 4:15 p.m. as Professor Cocks reads from and discusses his new book. The event will be held in Bobbitt Auditorium on the Albion College campus and a reception will follow. READ MORE


Tuition-Free Day

Albion College celebrates our Founders Day each year on March 23. This year, Founders Day will be celebrated together with our inaugural Tuition-Free Day, an event to educate students about the impact of philanthropy on our campus. Approximately 80% of the cost to educate a student is paid by students. With just 20% of the semester remaining, the rest of the semester is symbolically provided by our donors.


Every year, alumni, parents, community members, and friends of the College give philanthropic donations which support all areas of our College. Not only do donations help us maintain our strong standing in national rankings of the best colleges and universities, they also directly support our students and allow us to fund capital projects. On Tuition-Free Day, students will learn that Albion College is a not-for-profit institution that relies on alumni, parents, friends, and other donors —
like you!

Nearly 25 years later, Brown's career has completed the full circle. This time, he's mentoring a group of economics and management majors in a consulting project as the city of Albion evaluates the redesign of its website. READ MORE
