BOLD Council

The BOLD Council is the advisory group to the young alumni program.

The Council provides guidance and direction to the young alumni program and works to enhance the connection between the College and our alumni of the last decade. The BOLD Council supports fundraising efforts, promotes young alumni events, and works with alumni in residence to ensure the connection is not lost once they leave Gettysburg College.

BOLD Council Applications for the June 1, 2016-May 31, 2019 term are now OPEN!  We are accepting applications from alumni in the classes of 2016 (current seniors) through 2009.


Please read through the following documents to become familiar with the BOLD Council and membership responsibilities.
