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, Homecoming & Family 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."

Off Campus

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. Contact the Office of Alumni and Family Relations at or (719) 389-6775 with questions or for additional information.

Summer Send-Offs

In the summer of 2022, the Office of Alumni and Family Relations brought back Summer Send-Offs — regional events intended to connect incoming students and their families with the larger CC community. We gathered in nine cities, including Boston, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Denver, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Click here to see photos from the summer 2022 festivities!

Summer Send-Offs offer the chance to network with fellow "CC people" in your region, meet alumni who can share advice with incoming students, and continue to build personal connections within the CC community. Stay tuned for summer 2023 dates and locations, or reach out to if you are interested in hosting an event in your city. If you're based in a region where we're hosting an event, you will recieve an email invitation. Hope to see you there!
