The Alumni Association was established by CU graduates on June 4, 1882, the afternoon after the university’s first commencement. These first alumni recognized the need for an ongoing involvement with the university. Today, the association serves more than 280,000 students and alumni worldwide. We publish the quarterly Coloradan magazine and numerous online communications, produce academic and social programming, fund scholarships and host local, regional and international events throughout the year.

In 2008, the University of Colorado Boulder launched the Forever Buffs initiative, eliminating annual dues for all alumni. Today the Forever Buffs community includes more than 294,000 students, alumni and friends who engage with the university though the programs, events, publications and social media channels offered by the Alumni Association. Membership benefits without membership dues.
