For Davises, It’s the Albion Ties That Bind

Together, Bud and Olivia Davis have been among the College's most faithful supporters, giving their time — Bud served as a trustee from 1973 to 1982 — and financial contributions to numerous campus projects over the years.

For Albion Biology Students, a Conference Experience to Remember

Seven biology students notched a major achievement in their Albion College careers by having their abstracts selected as part of the 2015 Experimental Biology conference, an annual gathering of six leading associations in disciplines ranging from anatomy and physiology to biochemistry and nutrition.

With the selection comes the opportunity to display both a research poster at the event and, of course, the experience on one’s CV. For two of the students—Safiya Syed, ’16, and Morgan Carey, ’15—the trip to Boston last month brought additional accolades, ones not usually bestowed on undergraduates.
