To celebrate our entry into the Pac-12, we traveled to San Francisco and Los Angeles in March to connect with more than 400 alumni who attended our receptions. Speakers included CU President Bruce Benson (Geol’64, HonDocSci’04), Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano, art professor Claire Farago, MCDBio professor Leslie Leinwand, head football coach Jon Embree (Comm’88) and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy (Soc’01). Stay tuned for our events in Chicago on Sept. 22 and in Seattle on Oct. 14.

Those who attended the events told us what made these events so spectacular:

  • Bonding with alums and parents
  • Speeches by Embree and Bieniemy made alums want to walk on to the team
  • Fascinating CU professors speaking on art and heart disease in women
  • Incredible food
  • A chance to connect with dear old CU
