Reunion weekend celebrates milestone years following your graduation from Colby. It gives you the opportunity to become reacquainted with the College and renew friendships with your classmates. We hope you will commemorate your reunion by participating in your class gift. By making a gift to the annual fund, 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 also helps strengthen individual and class ties with the College by renewing shared class feelings of pride and loyalty.
What Happens During Reunion Weekend?
Reunion is always held in early June. Each class has its own dinner Saturday night, and some classes choose to schedule activities in addition to the Colby signature events. These events include food trucks and games, the Maine Beer and Wine Fest, Barbecue on Mayflower Hill, the Parade of Classes, faculty and alumni lectures, the Vacationland Luncheon, and so much more.
When Should I Make My Gift?
We encourage you to make your gift before May 31 to guarantee your gift is counted in your class total.
