Be Involved

The Alumni Association has more than 40 chapters and clubs, all volunteer-run, which bring the CU Boulder experience close to home no matter where home is. Our non-dues paying local chapters host a variety of events from family-friendly outings to Buffs watch parties at the best venues. 

To make it all work, we need dedicated CU Boulder alumni who bleed black and gold to take on volunteer leadership positions. That's where you come in! Are you interested in taking on a leadership position with your Chicago Forever Buffs chapter? Email us!

Stay Connected

Our CU Boulder alumni chapters are open to all alumni! There is never a membership fee or registration required. Are you not getting chapter communications? Be sure your contact information is up-to-date with the Alumni Association. You will automatically receive chapter communications if we have a current email and mailing address for you that’s within 50 miles of an active chapter city.
