Community Notes

Celebrate graduation while showing your family’s connection to CU

Did you happen to see the black and gold cords graduating seniors wore during commencement in December or May?

As part of the Forever Buffs initiative, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association began a new tradition by providing “legacy cords” to graduating students whose family members are CU alums. The cords are worn with the student’s graduation gown to recognize his or her family ties to CU.
