Alumni Connections Team

The Alumni Connections Team is tomorrow’s most engaged and active alumni. They include students who understand the value of giving back to Colgate, while serving an important role as students.
Panel discussions, led by Colgate alumni, provide students with an overview of career paths, and what it takes to thrive in them.
The Alumni Connections Team (ACT) includes students on our Annual Fund calling program, Senior Class Gift Committee, former Reunion staff workers, or other students who want to learn more about life as a Colgate alumnus.

Our program model is this: connect more students with alumni so they can learn and appreciate the lifelong bond they share with Colgate. Life as an alumnus should not begin with graduation…it’s our responsibility to introduce earlier connections for students so they become our greatest alumni ambassadors.
More Information

Alumni and/or parents can contact Jenna Webb ’02 at for information about the program or ways you can meet our members. 

Or, take advantage of T.A.S.T.E. (Take A Student To Eat) by visiting campus and bringing one of our members to lunch….a great way to meet our membership and hear about student life at Colgate!

"I think the idea of linking Colgate's past with its present would truly enhance the Colgate community – a community I feel connected with even though I've only been a part of it for two months. I will bring enthusiasm, ideas, and dedication to the club.'
- Darcy Cunningham '14
"As a member of the Alumni Connection Team, I hope to strengthen the bong between Colgate alumni and Colgate students. I am hoping to work events such as reunion, but I also hope to encourage alumni to realize the ways in which they can still get involved with Colgate."
