Albion College is a small liberal arts, four-year private college offering undergraduate classes in Albion, MI. It is a four year residential college with approximately 30 buildings and 14 living spaces on main campus. We also have an athletic center, nature center and an equestrian center few miles from the main campus.

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

The College owns many houses in the town of Albion. These buildings remain unoccupied or are used for non-college related purposes. Hence, these buildings weren't considered to be within the institutional boundary
