Spirit Fridays – show your school spirit!
CU-Boulder kicked off the spring semester with a new tradition called Spirit Fridays, which invites the entire campus to show their school spirit by donning their favorite CU clothes, decorating their desks or by showing their positive school spirit in any way they choose. A CU Pride pin has been created in honor of Spirit Fridays. Through the end of the semester, anyone spotted wearing CU colors or gear on Fridays could be the lucky recipient of a pin from the distribution team roaming campus. Show your pride!
