It may be hard to read someone else’s mind, but it’s certain that they are “always thinking”—especially if they are Albion students.
Albion administrators have instituted a pay and hiring freeze for the next year. Faculty and staff will not receive raises, and any searches for tenure track faculty have stopped, according to president Donna Randall.
Despite reports, Albion’s smaller class size next year is not a result of budget cuts, poor PR or moldy residence hall buildings. The small class size is actually a result of a new recruiting campaign inspired by the United States Army old slogan: An Army of One.
In a statement released by the DDR last Tuesday, the presidential administration announced a $5,000,000.00 bailout plan for Albion College to cover the costs of needed expenses, including the implementation of flat screen TVs in Old Keller, art sculptures in the science complex and bicycles for the bike library.
