Give to Collins

As we all know, times are hard.  Increasingly, active Collins students struggle to find the funds needed to stay.  To help, we have set up a scholarship.  We were able to give scholarships to three students last year as a direct result of your generosity.


If you are able to do so, please consider supporting this initiative by donating to the Ralph Collins Living-Learning Center Educational Fund.

Alumni visit



Owen Sutkowski and Doug Briney came back to Collins to talk about their time here and what they're doing now.  See pictures from the event here


Send in your updates!


We'd love to hear what you're doing now.  Send your updates, so we can post them on our alumni update blog.

 Remak Collection Unveiling


Many alumni generously donated their published works to the Collins Library as a part of the Henry Remak Memorial Browsing Collection, which also contains items from his personal library.  On Friday, Apr. 1, at 5:00 p.m., we will be hosting a small unveiling of the collection in the Library.  Please attend if you're able!


Viennese Ball 2011!


See photographs of the evening masquerade here.  This year's theme was "Haru Matsuri: Japanese Spring Festival," and a great time was had by all! 


Alumni Reunion: Spring 2012


Collins 40th Anniversary will be next year, and we'll be hosting an alumni reunion to celebrate it.  More information will be forthcoming as plans are made!
