The I-Space resdients traditionally participate in the Britton Bash, Home-Coming, and The Spooktacular. The Spooktacular is an Albion College student-run event and takes place on Halloween for the community. Children and their parents gather in Upper Baldwin and assemble into groups before heading out to trick-or-treat along a designated route through campus. Each group is led by a student volunteer. Along the way, Albion College students involved in Greek life, athletic teams, special interest clubs and other student volunteer organizatons pass out candy. The I-Space also sponsors an annual International Dinner in each fall and a Mega Cultural Event each spring.
Albion College offers language-learning housing for foreign language teaching assistants and language students in French, German, and Spanish. This residential space serves as a "living laboratory" where Albion College students can practice their conversational skills with fellow students and native speakers. Residents call their building the I-Space. The Office of Community Living prefers to refer to it as the Modern Languages & Cultures Living Learning Community (MLAC LLC).
Students pledge to speak the intended language within their living quarters. Eligible students can earn .25 unit for residency in I-Space for one semester and active participation in weekly language tables and weekly cultural activities in the student's respective language house. Students add this course during the first week of classes, once they have moved in.
The I-Space is located in Fiske House on the corner of Cass and Ingham streets.
