why i give

Erik Rocheford '01

As an alumnus who loved my four years at Colby-Sawyer, I direct my annual donation toward scholarships so that some other 18 year old out there can have the same great experience that I did. Colby-Sawyer has played a huge part in shaping my life. I met my wife here, made countless friends whom I expect to still see when I am 90, and earned a valuable degree (Exercise Science) that got me into a good master's program and, ultimately, into the job that I enjoy every day. I know that there are many people out there with similar stories and I bet most of them reminisce, just like my wife and I do, about our fantastic times at Colby-Sawyer. Think about it: $20 a year for five years. You could spend it on coffee in two weeks, or you could help someone have an amazing four years that they will never forget.
