Giving at Albion College – Davis Athletic Complex

We see changes happening in Albion, and many of them have to do with Albion College.

At the College one of the big new things is the Davis Athletic Complex, that is near the corner of East Erie Street and Hannah Street.  The complex was made possible by a generous gift from Bud and Ruby Davis to the college.
