Grad BashBalloons

The CU-Boulder Alumni Association and The Herd want to celebrate your graduation this December with the Winter Grad Bash. 

If you are a senior, grad student or PhD student who is graduating in December 2017, join us at the Koenig Alumni Center from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8 for FREE heavy appetizers, beverages (21+, bring ID) and a commemorative mug* as our graduation gift to you! 

We’re also giving away great prizes including a spot on our Young Alumni Ski Trip to Crested Butte in February worth almost $500. While you’re relaxing with friends, check out how the Alumni Association can help you after you graduate and for the rest of your life, all without any dues. You can also gather information from Career Services, find out about our Chapters and Affinity Groups across the globe, and pick up your legacy cord and much more!

So, take a break from your studies and head over to Koenig for the Winter Grad Bash 2017!

You must be graduating in December 2017 to attend this event.  Guests are welcome if you register them online.

Forever Buffs

You are a Forever Buff!  You are part of a family with 240,000 CU Boulder alumni and 30,000 students who engage, contribute and celebrate CU.

Be sure to pick up your legacy cord if you have a family member who also graduated from CU.  As part of the Forever Buffs initiative, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association has started a new tradition by providing “legacy cords” to graduating students whose family members are CU alumni. The black and gold cords are worn with your cap and gown to recognize your tie to a CU legacy family.  For more information, click here.
