Spirit of Adventure Award

medallion_4The Spirit of Adventure Award recognizes an alumnus/a who exemplifies the unique CC experience through a life of intellectual, social, or physical adventure. These attributes are characterized by the late Robert M. Ormes '26, a Colorado College English professor from 1952-73 who was the inaugural award recipient. He was an adventurer of the mind, the body, and the spirit that exemplifies much of what is special about the college.

Do you know an alumnus/alumna, faculty, or staff member who should be recognized for their contributions to CC or to society? If so, we need YOUR nominations.

Submit a nomination.
