Alumni Association recognizes CUYA as 2016 Forever Buffs Chapter of the Year
Each year, the CU Boulder Alumni Association recognizes a volunteer-run Forever Buffs Alumni Chapter that advances the mission of the Association of connecting alumni, contributing to the greater good of the university and celebrating CU pride. Chapters do so with new and innovative programming that egages alumni through either professional development, community service and other philanthropic opportunities.
The 2016 Forever Buffs Chapter of the Year award was given to CUYA in recognition of its successful "Buffs in the Biz" program which brings together a panel of notable CU alumni for a night of networking with young professionals in the Denver Area.
The Young Alumni foster an environment that continues to promote the CU experience and have a great time while doing it right in the heart of Denver. We host several events per month ranging all across the board from professional development events to service events to athletics events to social events with brand new events getting added to the calendar constantly.
This past year has been good to our chapter as we continued our successful Buffs in the Biz professional development series, reinvigorated our summer pub crawl in the best way possible with LODOlympics, enjoyed a 10-4 football season, hosted our first Buffs Give Back event, and received the Alumni Association Chapter of the Year Award from our peers.
Whether you are interested in connecting with old friends, making new ones, or just getting back into the CU community, we definitely have something for you!
Check back frequently so you stay updated on everything we have going on. I hope to CU at one of our events soon!
Your CUYA Chapter President, Deanna Lund (ENGL ’10)
