New Backyard for Koenig
Built as a residence for CU’s first president, Koenig Alumni Center is now 132 years old — but the new backyard is vintage 2016. On April 28, after six months of demolition and reconstruction, the expanded and newly landscaped property hosted its first big event, Grad Bash, the Alumni Association’s annual festival for graduating seniors. More than 1,800 attended. The Koenig property, which hosts about 200 events a year, including scores of weddings, now offers an additional 1,800 square feet of outdoor space, a new gazebo and a giant, all-weather 20-footby-40-foot tent. Landscapers planted locust trees, vinca vine and peonies and laid fresh sod.
Koenig is available for rental. For details and reservations, call 303-492-8484 or visit colorado.edu/alumni.
