There are many opportunities for alumni to offer their time and talent in order to make a difference for the College community. Join a regional club, plan a reunion, serve as a gift chair or class agent, offer career expertise, promote Colby to prospective students, and more!

See below for many other ways to get involved.


Admissions volunteers provide an invaluable service to the Admissions Office by having conversations with current applicants, contacting admitted students, and representing Colby at college fairs.

Alumni Council

The Alumni Council governs the Alumni Association and participates in a variety of activities to support students, alumni, and the College.

Colby Connect

An online networking platform for members of the Colby community, you can connect with alumni, families, and students; join groups based on your interests; and act as a resource for students as they prepare to enter the workforce.

Colby Fund

The Colby Fund comprises annual unrestricted contributions from alumni and members of the senior class. It provides immediate budget relief for scholarships, faculty salaries, libraries, and campus maintenance, and it supports athletics, student clubs, lectures, the arts, and other activities. Over 1,000 alumni and parents volunteer their time to the Colby Fund each year, helping raise necessary funds to make a real-time impact. Through the Colby Fund, alumni have the opportunity to represent their class in several roles, including class president, gift chair, and class correspondent. Alumni also may become 1813 Society ambassadors and members of the 1813 Society Committee. 


Alumni and employer engagement is a cornerstone of DavisConnects. Through DavisConnects and Pay It Northward, you can share information about your career, become a mentor, host an intern, provide job shadowing opportunities, or recruit Colby students.

Regional Programs/Events and Colby Club Volunteers

Colby Clubs hold interesting and valuable events for alumni, which offer the opportunity to reconnect to the College and fellow alumni. Become a Colby Club volunteer to help organize a lecture with a faculty member, host an event, or start a new club in your geographic area.
