For many of us, this summer may be different from what we were expecting. Whether your student is looking for a job right now or looking for activities to fill downtime, here are some things they can do this summer.
Encourage your student to participate in Census 2020
Census results directly affect resources available to CU Boulder students, faculty and staff and the Boulder community. Even if home with you now, encourage your student to support CU and the Boulder community by participating in Census 2020 using their Boulder address. Students who remain in or previously lived in campus housing don’t need to take any action.
Let your CU Grad (and your neighbors) know how proud you are!
We’ve created ready-to-print lawn signs, large banners and posters to celebrate your student’s graduation and transition into the Forever Buffs family.
