This year marks the anniversary of your graduation from Colby--a time to become reacquainted with the College, renew friendships, and celebrate. We hope you will also commemorate your reunion by participating in your class gift. You can help make the Colby experience as unique and meaningful for today’s students as it was for you.
What Is Reunion Giving?
Reunion giving is a special component of the Colby Fund that seeks increased support from members of reunion classes. While celebrating your reunion creates an impetus for increased financial support, the gift drive also helps strengthen individual and class ties with the College by renewing shared class feelings of pride and loyalty. Last year alumni contributed more than $6,700,000 to the Colby Fund, 20 percent of which came from those celebrating a reunion.
What Happens During Reunion Weekend?
Festivities begin Thursday evening, June 2, and run through Sunday morning, June 5. Each class has its own dinner Saturday night, and some classes choose to schedule activities in addition to the events scheduled for all returning classes. These events include the parade of classes, faculty lectures, alumni lectures, the Presidential Golf Tournament, Celebrate Colby, the lobster bake, and much more. Even if this will be the first reunion you’ve ever attended, we hope you’ll come to campus with your classmates. You won’t regret coming back! Go to alumni.colby.edu/reunion
