What is The Pride?

The Pride is a student organization supported by the UCCS Alumni and Friends Association that provides current students with ways to get involved through homecoming and traditions and to create the kind of campus you'll be proud of for years to come. We also offer career programming and networking opportunities with our alumni that will help you both today and when you venture into life after college. Make the most of your time at UCCS and create connections that will last a lifetime: join today!

How do I sign up?

All UCCS students are automatically members of The Pride, so you don't need to do anything formal to join us. We do recommend that you like us on Facebook to stay connected and informed about upcoming activities. Most of all, take advantage of the special events we offer that are designed to help you succeed both before and after graduation.
