Maroons by Choice
At Roanoke College, we believe in pursuing lives of purpose, to meet our society’s most pressing needs. Our guiding principles are the foundation of how we seek to develop our culture. We are a community deeply rooted in the power of belief and commitment that will produce a legacy of good.
Because of ambassadors like you, we are fortunate to have the support of faithful friends who may not be traditional alumni but are Maroons in the ways that matter most. Our community produces life-long relationships that believe in the power of support.
Honor this dedication by nominating someone special to become officially recognized as Roanoke College Maroons by Choice!
All Roanoke College Alumni may nominate a prospective Maroons by Choice by completing the nomination form describing the nominee’s love and support of the College. Please take a few moments to articulate the deep commitment to Roanoke College.
Once approved, each new Maroons by Choice class is recognized at the Maroons by Choice Ceremony during Alumni Weekend, a special campus celebration where they receive their official Roanoke Maroons by Choice recognition. These individuals will then be welcomed into the Roanoke College Alumni Association.
Maroons by Choice nominations will be accepted each year through February and will be considered for our Maroons by Choice Ceremony scheduled for Alumni Weekend in April. If selected, Maroons by Choice Honorees and their nominators will be notified in early March.
