“Drawing Together” Oct. 19 at Mudd Library

Join us again or for the first time at “Drawing Together” on Thursday, Oct. 19, starting at 5 p.m. in the Mudd Library Living Room. All are welcome to join the fun — that includes non-artists, aspiring artists, expert artists, and everyone in between! We’ll have MORE art supplies, NEW drawing videos, BOOKS to browse from the Albion College Graphic Medicine Collection, and — of course — SNACKS. This is an opportunity to check out some new comics available at the library and explore a channel of self-expression. Watch for details about future “Drawing Together” events: Nov. 16 and Dec. 7. We hope to see you there!

Members earn $6,895 towards an education scholarship and receive a biweekly stipend between $890 – $1,190, based on the state location. Learn more at City Year.

If you are unable to attend the information session but would like to schedule a one-on-one appointment with the City Year representative, please contact the Career and Internship Center at careers@albion.edu or 517-629-0332. The City Year campus recruiter will be at Albion Oct. 11-12.

You’re invited to a Coming Out Day celebration

Be in community this Coming Out Day! Drop in for a celebration of the beauty of the gender and sexuality spectrum tomorrow, October 11th from 11am-1pm on the quad! We will have an interactive “coming out of the closet” photo booth with inclusive signs and fun props, a button-making station, stickers, delicious snacks and more! Come learn some of the campus and community resources that support you exactly as you are. You don’t have to be out to find community with us, join us for a good time! The alternative celebration location will be the KC living room.
