How 29 alums stay connected to HWS*

Last year, Hobart and William Smith Colleges placed in the top 50 in Forbes magazine’s “Grateful Grads Index,” which ranks colleges and universities based on the percentage of alums who donate to their alma mater each year, a percentage which is a strong indicator of return on investment.

With one eye on the Colleges’ strong history and another on their boundless potential, these stakeholders — and many others — are ensuring the sustained presence and healthy progress of Hobart and William Smith, from establishing important scholarships and hosting student interns, to building connections among alums across the country.
