|College Friday is this week|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
On Friday, April 12, proud alumni and students from colleges and universities near and far have an opportunity to celebrate higher education and show their pride by wearing the gear of their favorite college or university on College Friday.
College In Colorado encourages everyone to wear their favorite college shirts, hats, jackets and more.
College Friday is a fun opportunity to recognize and celebrate the importance of higher education by encouraging conversations with young people about their future.
Since it began in 2006, College Friday has grown every year. Businesses, schools and alumni organizations all join in.
Carl’s Jr. and some Cold Stone Creameries are offering specials for those in college attire, and CSU-Global campus and CSU-Pueblo will waive application fees for College Week, April 7-14.
Community members are encouraged to get involved by putting on their favorite college jersey and talking to a young person about higher education and career training. Show college pride!
College In Colorado was initiated by the Department of Higher Education, which serves the citizens of the state of Colorado by promoting access to, affordability of and success in higher education for all students.
College In Colorado helps all Coloradans explore career and education pathways, break down barriers to postsecondary attainment and create a plan for their postsecondary and workforce success. For more information, visit www.CollegeInColorado.org.
