Meetings of the AAUW were held each month from October to June, sometimes on the Colby Campus or in members' homes. In 1932 the AAUW had a total of 50 members. The AAUW was interested in matters of education, international relations and scholarship assistance. The AAUW of Waterville still meets today at Colby College.
