Get Your Legacy Cord
Have CU in your blood? If so, wear your black and gold legacy cord at graduation.
As part of the Forever Buffs initiative, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association started a new tradition by providing “legacy cords” to graduating students whose family members are CU alums. The black and gold cords are worn with the student’s graduation gown to recognize his or her tie to a CU legacy family.
Students graduating in May who have CU family ties should stop by Old Main beginning April 24 to receive a free legacy cord. The cords also are available at The Herd’s Grad Bash on May 1 at Koenig Alumni Center. The Herd is the student arm of the Alumni Association.

CU-Boulder Fun Fact
Did you know that the first university bell was hung in the belfry of Old Main in 1878? It signaled class changes until 1926, when a large crack appeared during the celebratory ringing that followed a football victory over the Colorado School of Mines.
The carillon bells (a set of bells played by a keyboard) are located in Macky Auditorium and can be heard ringing out across campus at the top of the hour.
