College Friday returns to Colorado May 4

Clyde the Mountain Lion gives a high five to a participant at the 2017 Climb for Courage event.

With nearly 75 percent of jobs in Colorado projected to require a college degree or certificate by 2020, UCCS alumni and students are encouraged to wear their college gear Friday, May 4, in the annual College Friday campaign. The statewide event is to support Colorado high school students’ decision to continue education with a four-year or two-year degree, or certificate.

More than 300,000 Coloradans are expected to participate, with the potential for prizes for those who use #CollegeFriday or #edcolo on social media. The 2018 event will be the 13th year for the campaign sponsored by the College in Colorado initiative within the Colorado Department of Higher Education.
