CU Student Involvement Week declares, 'Get Involved!'

Published: Sept. 1, 2011

Student Involvement Week begins Sept. 6 at the University of Colorado Boulder with a variety of fairs, receptions and open houses to highlight opportunities for CU-Boulder students to become involved with their campus and the greater Boulder community.

Recognizing the more than 13,000 CU students who participate in some form of civic engagement every year, this year's Student Involvement Week theme is "Get Involved… It's What Buffs Do."

"Getting involved is one of the best ways to make the most out of your college experience," said Andrew Yoder, president of CU Student Government. "I encourage every CU student to try out as many clubs, groups and sports as they can during their time here, they won't regret it."
