6 Things That Make CU Alumni Nostalgic

September 25th, 2016

It’s true, college can be the best time of your life. You’re living in the middle of a cultural hub and surrounded by people who know how to have a good time and hate CSU. When it’s all over, here are the things that alumni miss the most: Tailgating. Among the things that CU is good at, winning football games isn’t necessarily up there, but tailgating certainly is. Football games are an all-day event so by 8:30am on Saturday morning, the Hill is popping with music, mimosas, and people getting ready to grill.

Even with an internship or a job in conjunction to a full class load students enjoy a freedom void of true responsibility. Is this the truth? Is college an extension of high school,... Read More
