Mission Statement

The C Club is an organization whose mission is to provide opportunities for alumni, parents, and friends to show support for Colby College and its athletic program. We accomplish our mission by:

  • Organizing functions and events that bring alumni, parents, and friends together in support of Colby athletics such as the Jack Deering Tailgate and C Club Dinner.
  • Recognizing student athletes for their athletic and academic achievements, strong character, and leadership qualities.
  • Honoring alumni and friends of the College who have made significant contributions in support of athletics at Colby (C Club Person of the Year Award), as well as members of the Colby family who have achieved noteworthy career success in athletics or in a career related to athletics (Carl Nelson Sports Achievement Award).
  • Building a large and diverse community that is representative of the Colby community and its athletic program.
