Forever Buffs Spotlight

The Forever Buffs Spotlight program recognizes the outstanding achievements of CU Boulder alumni within their chosen field, including the food and wine industries, arts and culture, science and technology, and more. Our Forever Buffs Spotlight events offer alumni the unique opportunity to learn from these successful alums, often in their work environment.

License Plates

In the state of Colorado it’s easy to show your CU pride everywhere you go! In three simple steps you can purchase a University of Colorado license plate and donate to a scholarship to help CU students.

Buffalo Legacy

Continuing your legacy at CU Boulder is the greatest gift you can give to your alma mater. The Alumni Association celebrates students whose parents and/or grandparents also attended CU Boulder with our Buffalo Legacy events and cords for commencement.

Chapters and Clubs

Celebrate your Forever Buffs pride by connecting with our alumni chapters and clubs across the country. The Alumni Association has more than 40 chapters and clubs, all intended to keep you connected to CU Boulder long after you graduate.

Buffs Give Back

The CU Boulder Alumni Association partnered with our alumni chapters in May 2016 for our first-ever annual day of service: Buffs Give Back! The event was a success as Forever Buffs across the country volunteered in their communities and we can't wait to do it again next year. Stay tuned for more details.

Senior Auditors

All Colorado residents who are 55 or older have the opportunity to attend daytime courses on the CU Boulder campus as part of the Senior Auditors Program created in 1973 by the Board of Regents and administered by the Alumni Association. 

The Herd

The Herd is the student alumni association of the CU Boulder Alumni Association and is the largest student organization on campus with approximately 5,000 members.

Volunteer Opportunities

Without our remarkable volunteers the Alumni Association would be far more limited in what it can do for students and alums. Volunteering is an investment in the university’s future. You make the best recruiters, advocates and role models. We hope you find fulfillment in giving of your time and expertise for the good of the university.


With the help of generous Forever Buffs, the Alumni Association is able to award student scholarships every year and ensure that undergraduates have a positive CU Boulder experience.
