What is the
True Blue Corps?

  • True Blue pin logo

Begun by the Alumni Association Board in 2014, the True Blue Corps (TBC) promotes life-long engagement with the College by fostering a spirit of pride and a shared sense of history and tradition. As advocates and volunteers for the College, TBC members give of their time and treasure.

Corps Members

Members of TBC actively support the College’s recruiting efforts, fundraising, community-building initiatives and educational mission. They stay informed; they are able to speak about College priorities within their communities and are invested in the College’s future. They are energetic, engaged advocates for F&M who wear the College on their sleeves.

We have more than 27,500 living alumni. Let’s get them all involved! Commit to passing on your passion for F&M and be part of a group that is already engaged.

To get involved or learn more, contact Director of Alumni and Volunteer Engagement Donna Pflum at or 717-358-4266.
