As the Assistant Director of Annual Giving, Colleen’s primary responsibilities include handling all direct mail, e-solicitation and crowdfunding efforts, as well as organizing and directing the college’s annual #Giving2UCday.
Colleen Fida graduated from Ursinus College in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Media and Communication Studies. After graduation, she spent close to a year in corporate marketing until she was presented with the exciting opportunity to join the Advancement Office in October 2016.
While a student at Ursinus, Colleen had the privilege of working in the Human Resources Department as the Student Associate for Wellness, supporting the college’s Wellness Committee, NEWU.
It was through this unique position where she ultimately discovered her passion for health and wellness and the desire to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Despite this, however, she is an avid supporter of “Pizza Fridays” and believes that ice cream is acceptable at any hour of the day.
Colleen enjoys spending her free time behind the lens of a camera, on the beach, designing and decorating her imaginary home on Pinterest, traveling when her bank account allows and spending time with friends, family, and her adorable Labrador-Collie mix named Colbie.
