The Herd is the student alumni association of the CU-Boulder Alumni Association and is one of the largest student alumni groups in the country with approximately 6,000 members.
What Does The Herd Do?
Our mission is to provide CU students with positive memories and connections with others through our events. We are here to bring students together, get them involved, and spread Buff pride. Attending Herd events ensures a memorable college experience and keeps you connected to CU and the Alumni Association when you graduate.
There are three major aspects that the Herd focuses on:
- CU Students wearing CU Herd Gear (all the gear is free once you join the Herd)
- CU Students being a part of memorable traditions (through Herd events)
- CU Students saving money around CU and Boulder (through our member benefits)
What does it mean to be a Herd member?
Any CU student can sign up to be a Herd member. Once you are a Herd member there is no obligation of what you must do. Members can attend what they want and skip those things that don’t interest them. Herd members are a diverse group of students who foster pride in CU and enjoy all that The Herd has to offer. Whether you are looking for camaraderie, a free ride to the ski slopes, fun pregame parties, discounts all over Boulder, or just want to spread the Buff pride, The Herd offers something for everyone. Join anytime!
Who runs The Herd?
The Herd is run by 15-20 student Herd Leaders. This volunteer student group, known as The Herd Leadership Council, helps plan and carry out the great events that keep the Herd a vital part of the campus and growing. Being a Herd Leader provides an opportunity to grow as a person and to gain important leadership, marketing and advertising and event planning skills. There are also great perks like trips to away football games, fun retreats and valuable friendships and leadership opportunities.
Where is The Herd located?
Our home, The Koenig Alumni Center, is located at Broadway & University across from Starbucks.
