Enjoy a night filled with memories, advice and CU pride as you host a Dinner with 12 Buffs. Now in its third year, this CU Boulder Alumni Association program brings current students together with alumni in the Boulder community to help them network before they leave campus. Or, if you're not in the Boulder area, you can host a group of young alums as they navigate the transition from CU into "the real world."
Hosting a dinner
The Alumni Association is looking for volunteers to host dinners this spring in Boulder for students and need volunteers in regional locations like Denver, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago and more to host young alumni.
Dinners must be held Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9.
