An auto dealer and his wife are donating $5 million to Albion College to expand recreation and attract more students.
  
The money from Joe and Julie Serra will add 10,000 square feet to the Dow Recreation and Wellness Center. Albion athletic director Matt Arend says part of the gift will also help renovate Kresge Gym, which serves college sports teams.
  
Serra says he hopes other alumni will be inspired to give. He says, “We benefited from Albion; let others benefit.”
  
Serra played basketball at Albion, a private college 40 miles south of Lansing. He is president of Serra Automative.
