Welcome home, Lightning!
Get involved, stay connected, and support Goldey-Beacom College.
The Alumni Association represents over 13,000 living alumni of Goldey-Beacom College. All GBC graduates automatically become a member! The association acts as a network for alumni to connect with one another, maintain a lifelong relationship with the college, and celebrate our alumni successes!
Leading the Alumni Association is a committed group of alumni volunteers that make up the Board of Directors. They meet quarterly to plan events and activities to support the College, its students, and its mission. In addition to holding fundraising events to raise funds the newly created Angel Fund, the Board honors exemplary graduates through their biennial Distinguished Alumni Gallery Dinner. They also host several networking and family events, Alumni Night at the Blue Rocks and the “GBC Drives for Education” Golf Outing each year.
We are always looking for passionate and committed individuals who are willing to contribute their time, skills, and expertise to help further our mission and goals.
Your donations, large and small, make our tradition of excellence possible. Education is a lifetime gift, and it’s the generous support of alumni and friends that help us propel students into their careers. Donations to the annual fund make an immediate and tangible difference that allows us to educate students who go on to make a different in their communities.

Goldey-Beacom takes on Wilm U!
The Distinguished Alumni Gallery (DAG) recognizes Goldey-Beacom College alumni for their extraordinary life accomplishments.
You can nominate a fellow Goldey-Beacom graduate for induction into the Distinguished Alumni Gallery, or to be recognized as a Rising Star. A third award, the Presidential Award, is chosen by the Presidents of the College and of the Alumni Board.
Alumni may be nominated throughout the year, and an awards banquet is held every other year to recognize the new inductees.

Many of you may recall the iconic pop culture phrase “stay gold” from the 1980’s. It is derived from the motion picture based upon the novel “The Outsiders”, written by author S.E. Hinton. In the novel and the movie, the phrase ‘stay gold’ serves as a reminder to cling tightly to that hour when you were at your finest, your purest, your best. Each Distinguished Alumni story is a fundamental piece of our legacy that we will seek to preserve and share for many decades to come.
In 2021, the GBC Alumni Association launched the Stay Gold Campaign, an initiative to honor and preserve the legacies of GBC’s distinguished men and women. Its mission was to dramatically update the appearance of the gallery by transforming it into a digital design that many future generations of Bolts can access easily and appreciate. In addition, the Alumni Association moved the location of the gallery to a much more central location- the main wall of the Event Center lobby where it will have prime visibility. All are welcome to visit the display!
Events and Alumni Engagement Coordinator
Hello fellow GBC Alum! I graduated from GBC with my Bachelor’s in Marketing Management in 2006, then in 2010 with my Master’s in Management degree. After volunteering on the Alumni Association Board of Directors for 4 years, I made the transition to work for GBC full time in May 2022, and I love it here! GBC has so much to offer students, alumni, and the community. My goal is to bring alumni together to support our amazing alma mater not just financially, but in the way that we talk about and engage with others. My attendance at Goldey-Beacom changed my life, and I know I am not alone! I’d love to hear your story and how GBC affected you-please contact me anytime!
