Who Loves You, CU?
You may have noticed "I Love CU" pins appearing on lapels and T-shirts, book bags and more. The "I Love CU" pin project began with a brainstorm from Professor Patty Limerick and has blossomed into a way for us all to express our CU pride. The project is coordinated through CU-Boulder Community Relations. If you are interested in helping to "spread the love" throughout the Boulder community, please contact the Community Relations office for pins by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
