NOTE: Colorado College is responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. Spring Break is extended, Block 7 and 8 classes will be delivered via distance learning. Admission open houses and visits are canceled. See Coronavirus Updates & Resources here.
Originating in 1984, The Hulbert Center Aficionados program is driven by a public interest in the American Southwest. The Aficionados welcome all who are eager to gain knowledge of the people, land, environment, arts, and anthropology that enrich this region. During each block at Colorado College, the Aficionados host a luncheon that includes a lecture by a speaker with expertise in an issue pertaining to the Southwest. While certainly not required, several Aficionados attendees are among the regular donors to Hulbert Center programs. All donations are tax exempt.
Reservations are required the Friday before each luncheon. To register for any of the lunch lectures, click on the corresponding link.
