Did you live in Sewall Hall just like your grandmother or take a class from the same chemistry professor as your father? 

Students whose parents, stepparents or grandparents attended CU Boulder are considered Buffalo Legacies and are eligible for scholarships their freshman year and special, complementary cords to wear during commencement. 

The buildings may look a bit different these days, but your Buff Pride has remained constant throughout generations, and that’s worth celebrating!

Registration for Buffalo Legacy is now open. 

Cords will be available for pickup from Nov. 6–Dec. 21 at the Koenig Alumni Association.

Contact theherd@colorado.edu with any questions.
