The Albion College student body is a diverse one and can be shown through laptop stickers. Some people can read a person by their body language and tone, but a laptop sticker can also show a lot about a person.
Three hot spots for laptops were chosen for article interviews: the library, the Kellogg Center’s fourth floor and the science complex.
Each unique sticker is accompanied by a direct quote from the student.

“H” pattern — It’s a brand that makes blender bombs made out of flax seed, dates and cacao powder that makes your smoothie better and filling.

Stickers Describing Camila Manrique
Whale — I got this sticker from Vineyard Vines. I ordered something online and [the store] sent the tie-dye[-styled] sticker, and I liked it very much, [so] I transferred it from my old laptop to my new laptop.
Capitalism — I got it at Briton Bash from the Albion College Republicans, and I thought it was funny because it’s true.
Stickers Describing Katie Valdade

No bad days — Whenever I would have a bad day, I would remind myself that someone else is having a worse day than me.

Stickers Describing Rosemary Hernandez
Piñata — I got it from Briton Bash at the [Organization for Latinx Awareness] table. I have memories about birthday parties and the piñata reminds me of them.
Mangonada and chicharones — I was really hungry, and I missed the food from Texas, and all the local restaurants would have them. They are my favorite Mexican snacks.
Stickers Describing Nicky McCann
Shark — It’s a funny image, and doing homework is brutal, and when I look at the shark, it makes me laugh.
“Finding Nemo” quote — I’m a swimmer and a fan of fish. I watched [‘Finding Nemo’] growing up because it was my sister’s favorite movie. My boyfriend eats fish and I don’t so when he eats sushi, I remind him ‘fish are friends, not food.’
Bee — I hate the “Bee Movie” with a strong passion, but I bought it because I read it in a funny accent.
Erase the Stigma — I am a psych major, and I liked it. The semicolon is a symbol for the mental health movement. It symbolizes not to judge people based on their mental health. Be kind to people. Erase the stigma with depression and anxiety.
“Friends” — I love the show “Friends,” and [the sticker] was free. Chandler and Joey’s bromance makes me happy.
Campfire — Every summer, we would go to a camping trip with my extended family, and I love the smell of the campfire smoke. The smell is a natural outdoorsy scent: strong and subtle.
