Gift Will Transform Munger Place Into Reimagined Living-Learning Community

For a young Gary Noble, ’57, Albion College proved to be a special place at a special time in his life. All these years later, it’s still special and he wants to do his part to make sure it stays that way.

That’s why, recalling his past experience with an eye toward the future, Noble and his wife of 49 years, Peggy Noble, recently made a significant six-figure gift to the College for the purpose of refurbishing and enhancing Munger Place as part of a new student living-learning community.

“Albion College provides a place which really embraces the principles of freedom of inquiry and liberty of thought and expression,” Noble said. “It’s important to retain and strengthen liberal arts education, and Albion is an ideal place to do that.”

Students Refer Students - So Can You

"Making a student referral was incredibly simple," says Kelsey Sandahl, '15 (right) who referred Taylor Rosenthal, '19 (left). "The referral form asked for basic information about the student and the person referring. It only takes a few minutes to complete."

"Referring Taylor to Albion was a simple decision. She is an exceptionally bright young woman and incredible athlete," says Kelsey. "I thought her lively personality would make an excellent addition to not only the Britons volleyball team, but the class of 2019."
