College Friday is Friday, April 8. Sponsored by College in Colorado, the purpose of the day is to help raise awareness about the importance of higher education for Colorado's youth and wear your favorite college logo apparel. In anticipation of College Friday, the university is having a variety of events on both campuses starting Monday, April 4.

Activities for Students, Faculty and Staff

Beginning on Monday, April 4, the Denver Campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado Denver will be giving out free T-shirts, food and more to faculty, staff and current students (first come, first served; while supplies last; limit one per customer). All you need to do is come to the appropriate location and show your university I.D. to get a new University of Colorado Denver or University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus T-shirt. We are encouraging faculty and staff to make a $5 donation to the College in Colorado College Friday Scholarship Fund.
