Three Forever Buffs in spirited outfits

In 2008, the University of Colorado Boulder launched the Forever Buffs initiative, which eliminated annual membership dues for all alumni. 

Now there are over 300,000 Forever Buffs — people like you who proudly call CU Boulder their alma mater. 

Being a Forever Buff means you support other Buffs when you can and sometimes you’re the beneficiary of that support. It means you share a “Go Buffs!” when you spot someone in CU gear. And it means you still get chills when Ralphie runs onto Folsom Field.  

As a member of this powerful network, you have access to meaningful experiences and valuable resources provided by the CU Boulder Alumni Association at no cost.

Stay connected to fellow Forever Buffs and CU Boulder. After all, the network, this family and this community of Forever Buffs exist because of you.

Dear Forever Buffs, 

In 2008, the University of Colorado Boulder launched the Forever Buffs initiative, which eliminated annual membership dues for all alumni. This means that all CU Boulder alumni have access to the Alumni Association's benefits including career services, the award-winning Coloradan magazine, events, discounts and more! It's membership benefits without membership dues.

We hope that the Forever Buffs initiative makes it easy for you to reconnect and increase your involvement with the university and that you will celebrate your CU pride with us!

Go Buffs!
