Events Overview

On Campus

Several annual on-campus events at Colorado College offer programs especially for parents and families of CC students, including New Student Orientation, Family and Friends Weekend, and Commencement.

With the Colorado Springs community, family members who visit their students throughout the year are also invited to participate in any events on the campus calendar that are listed as "open to the public."

Regional Events

In collaboration with the Colorado College Alumni Association and regional alumni chapters, the college sponsors regional off-campus events that include alumni, students, parents, families, and friends. These activities span all interests, such as athletics, career networking, educational enrichment, and CC happy hours at a favorite local hotspot. Activities also include family-friendly, affinity, admission, and cultural gatherings.
