You are BOLD!
The Albion College Alumni Association has developed this special space for alumni who have received their degree within the past 10 years. You are a BOLD – a Brit Of the Last Decade! As young alumni, you are an important part of the Briton family!
As your "real world" experience develops and you put your degree to work, we are here to support you and help you support one another. Albion College will be in contact with you about events and services designed specifically for our younger alumni.
We hope you will remain an active member of the Albion family. It is up to you to determine what your role will be. Whether you stay in Michigan or move across the country, there is likely a group of other Albion alumni who frequently get together in your home area.
Here are a few of the opportunities available to you:
- Alumni Socials
- Community Service
- The A Team
- Summer Send-Offs
We also encourage you to nominate your peers for Albion's Young Alumni Awards program. Simply review the criteria and submit the nomination form.
And Albion's Career and Internship Center stands ready to serve you, should you need additional assistance after graduation. All resources available to current students are offered to alumni as well.
Be a proud BOLD and let us know how you'd like to be connected and involved. Contact Elinor Marsh in the Office of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement online or call 517/629-0448.
Stay connected to all Albion College alumni and friends in your area. Find classmates, network, or learn how to get involved. Most of all, have fun!
These regional alumni chapters will build a community of learning, support, networking, and service among alumni, parents, and current students. The chapters are catalysts for alumni networking and socializing. Check out a chapter in your area, get involved, and remember just how much fun it is to be a Brit!
How do I get involved?
If there is not already a chapter in your area, contact the Office of Alumni Engagement online or call 517/629-0247 to discuss opportunities to network with fellow alumni.
Chapters serve, support, and participate in the life of Albion; connect alumni with each other and represent Albion to others.
The A Team!
One of the most valuable contributions alumni and parents can make to Albion is to assist in our recruitment of talented new students. You can help the Admission Office expand the scope of its recruitment efforts by representing Albion in a number of ways as a member of The A Team!
The A Team serves to identify and recruit well-qualified students to Albion, to create a network for students who have applied to or enrolled at Albion, and to build relationships with local high schools.
Overview of The A Team
The A Team provides a wonderful opportunity for alumni to support their alma mater, serve their communities, and assist Albion's admission efforts. Become part of an alumni volunteer network across the country and around the world. Volunteers provide a local and personal link between Albion and prospective students and families—a very important part of the admission process.
Goals of the Program
- Encourage the most qualified and talented students to apply to Albion by supporting year-long admission efforts.
- Improve knowledge in your community of Albion and its admission criteria.
- Provide an opportunity for alumni to stay up-to-date with the College by serving as a local ambassador.

B12: A Bite with 12 Brits
"A Bite with 12 Brits" builds and strengthens the Albion community by creating an informal environment for Albion alumni and current students to make real connections with one another. As a host, you provide opportunities for current students to enhance their professional network and social skills in a trusted setting.
It's easy. You agree to host a simple meal, as informal or formal as you wish, on the date and time of day of your choice. You are welcome to invite other alumni or professional colleagues who will enhance the conversations and student experience. The College will invite 10 students and two faculty/staff members to participate and provide transportation to and from your home.
If you are interested in hosting a Bite with 12 Brits, here are some simple steps to make your "B12" a success:
- Decide on a date, time, location, and the number of people you can accommodate (it doesn't have to be 12 people).
- Select the meal format (e.g. dinner, weekend lunch, brunch, desserts and coffee, etc.) These occasions need not be elaborate. Our students will be most appreciative of your hospitality and the opportunity to gain insights from and make connections with alumni who share their professional interests.
- Provide us with a brief biography of yourself and an initial message to the guests that we can forward along on your behalf.
- Let us know how your event went by filling out an evaluation at your convenience.
Sound like something you'd like to do? Let us know, and we will get the ball rolling! Contact the Office of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement online or call 517/629-0448.
