Photo Feature: Students return to campus for the fall 2021 semester

UCCS returned this fall with a majority of in-person classes and events. Halfway through the first week of classes, students can be seen making new memories, visiting old stomping grounds and celebrating the return to campus through events hosted by the Department of Student Life.

In case you missed it, last week UCCS faculty and staff waved streamers, applauded and cheered for UCCS’ incoming first years at the 2021 Mountain Lion Rally. Click here to see the photo feature.
