Alumni Association

The Bay College Alumni Association is involved in four major areas during the year:


Distinguished Alumni Award

This award was established in 1999 to recognize and honor an outstanding alumni each year who made contributions to his/her career, community, and/or Bay College. The Alumni of the Year is recognized at the annual Awards Dinner in April and graduation in May.  They are also invited to be a keynote speaker at commencement the following year to capstone their honor.

Nominations are accepted for the Distinguished Alumni Award year round.  Potential candidates are reviewed each March by the Alumni Association, and are considered for two years. Current Bay College employees are not eligible for nomination. Submit a nominiation for the 
the Distinguished Alumni Award by completing the Distinguished Alumni Award online nomination form.

Alumni/Graduate Celebration

The annual Spring Fling is scheduled every spring. The purpose is to bring current alumni, faculty, and graduates together to get know one another, reunite and to celebrate and honor the current graduates of Bay College. We enjoy appetizers, refreshments,  and many excellent door prizes. Included in the many prizes are VISA gift cards for current graduates.

Bay College Scholarship Fund

The Bay College Alumni support a scholarship to award student success.  All Alumni Association gifts support the scholarship, unless designated otherwise.  Scholarships recipients are determined by the Bay de Noc Community College Financial Aid Office with guidance from the Foundation based on preferences set by the Alumni Board annually. Visit the Bay College Donation webpage to invest in education and support the Alumni scholarship.

Bay College Ambassadors

The Alumni Association's continuing role throughout the year is to promote Bay College and encourage people to attend and support Bay College. We look forward to you being an active and proud Bay College Alumni!
