will use the Albion College-assigned student e-mail as the primary address for purposes of official notifications regarding, but not limited to, registration, financial aid, billing, and admission, with the full expectation that these e-mails will be received and read by students in a timely fashion. Students should check their e-mail frequently and consistently, with the recognition that certain communications may be time-critical. The College issues e-mail accounts to all of its students; students may also elect, at their own risk, to have their College e-mail automatically forwarded to an outside account. The College is not responsible for the handling of e-mail by outside vendors, nor are students who use outside accounts absolved from responsibility for messages not received or read. If a full inbox or the unmonitored use of a “spam� filter causes undeliverable messages to be returned, these messages will be considered delivered, and further action will not be required of the College. As with the traditional postal mail service, the College assumes no responsibility for any messages not received or read by students.

Postings on windows, walls, doors, trees, sidewalks, lamp posts, etc., are not permitted unless previously granted special permission by the Campus Programs and Organizations Office. Removal of these postings and repair of any damage caused may be done at the expense of the individual or group responsible.

Chalking, Graffiti, and Painting, Including the Rock and Sheet Signs The Rock on the campus quadrangle has served for many years as a place for student and campus group expression on various issues and to advertise campus events. Painting on the Rock must be in good taste and conform to expectations Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in advertising on the Rock for events. Only the Rock and its pedestal may be painted. Individuals or groups painting the Rock should refrain from painting the outer circular sidewalk area, so as not to create a situation where wet paint is tracked into nearby buildings. Painting and/or graffiti of any kind is not permitted on other College property including sidewalks (except for chalk markings), streets, buildings, and plantings. Any costs incurred in cleaning/repairing/replacing such surfaces, including the outer circular sidewalk area around the Rock, will be billed to the responsible individual(s) or group(s). While the Rock cannot be reserved, groups should attempt to coordinate efforts so that all who wish may have an opportunity to use the Rock. The sheet sign wall exists between the Kellogg Center and Robinson Hall for the display of sheet signs. Sheet signs must be in good taste and conform to expectations Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in advertised events. While spaces on the wall cannot be reserved, individuals and groups should attempt to coordinate efforts so that all who wish may have an opportunity to use the sheet sign wall. Sheet signs may not be displayed in other

Postings Albion College provides authorized spaces around campus for the sharing of written communication by College community members that does not interfere with the orderly appearance or operation of the College. Postings must be in good taste and conform to expectations Albion holds as an academic institution. No mention of alcohol may occur in postings advertising any event. All postings in campus buildings must be put on public area bulletin boards. Respect should be shown by not covering others’ postings. Outdated materials will be regularly removed by College staff. The Vulgamore Hall showcase can also be reserved through the Campus Programs and Organizations Office by campus organizations for displays and event advertising. Residence hall student room door decorations must remain only on doors and be kept to a minimum for fire safety purposes. 30
