Dan Barcheski, ’83, Provides Example of Alumni Networking

Dan Barcheski

While technology has changed the way Dan Barcheski, ’83, leads Axios, the company he founded to deliver employment solutions to small and mid-sized companies 25 years ago, the importance of personal networking has remained constant.

That’s why he approached his management team to see if there was an internship available when he learned that current Albion junior Brett McCarty was looking for professional work experience.


Class of 2013 Celebrates Commencement

Warm wishes and not-too-cool weather suffused the campus as the 320 members of the Class of 2013 celebrated Commencement on May 11. It was the last Commencement for President Donna Randall, who will begin her off-campus duties as Albion College Chancellor in July.
