Annual Events & Festivals

It's awesome to be a student at Colorado College! 

One of the greatest aspects of the college experience is being a part of a great college tradition - a highly anticipated event that provides a sense of belonging, pride, school spirit and overall a sense of community.  Below are a few annual events and festivals that are highly anticipated. For more events and programs check out the CC Calendar as well as following us on Facebook for event updates.   

LoCCal Festival
