Rotaract is the collegiate branch of the global philanthropic organization, Rotary International. They provide volunteer and social opportunities for students in order to create deeper connections within CC and the greater community.
The CC chapter of Rotaract is currently not active, but in the past regularly participated in volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity and Rotary International sponsored events (e.g. The Butterfly Event and Poker Night) as well as other less recurring activities with Guardians of Palmer Park and others.
"Upon arriving to CC, I wanted to continue serving the community like I had throughout middle and high school. I love being a part of Rotaract because it allows me to fulfill my passion for community service, connect with other students, network with Rotary International members AND gain leadership skills! As a regular member (2011-present), Secretary/Volunteer Coordinator (2012-13) and now President of the club, I have participated in projects like Habitat for Humanity, Game Club, BANA Bags, Butterflies & Friends, and more!"

"I work for Rotaract because it is a wonderful way to get involved in our community through service. The friendships that I have made in Rotaract are genuine and fulfilling, and I enjoy representing Colorado College in such a meaningful way. "
