Hundreds of Forever Buffs spent a February evening in San Francisco connecting to each other and the university at CU Boulder Next. The night included BuffTalks (TED Talk-style presentations) from a Nobel Prize winner, an expert on preventing wildfires, a NASA Award winner and more. Plus, CU Athletic Director Rick George and co-founder of Unspun Kevin Martin (Engr’16) participated in Q&A sessions, we shared the acclaimed CU short film The Light Shines On and sampled beer, wine and cider crafted by CU Boulder alumni. Get a taste of CU Boulder Next by checking out the BuffTalks videos and event photos below.
