Welcome to the First Annual Spring Stampede

The 1st annual Spring Stampede is going down April 20 at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

What is a Stampede? It's a good old fashioned, drop-down, drag-out fight to win the title and a huge trophy for your Advisory College. This is the first ever, so it will set the tone for years, if not decades to come. You know your College is the best, now prove it. The current of competition will be fierce, so a fabulous pancake breakfast feast and a delectable lunch will keep you energized.

Don't worry, you don't need to be a Gladiator to help your college triumph. There is a challenge for you. Brief descriptions are below,  you can visit all of the individual sites to read the details and sign up.

A schedule for the day is available below. PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO LOOK IT OVER, WE HAVE ABBREVIATED THE DAY.
