College Colors Day Activities

  1. Take a #famphoto, #selfie, or #squadphoto to show off that college spirit

    Show your ultimate college spirit by sporting your favorite team's colors with your friends. Nothing says "GO TEAM!" like a selfie with your squad decked out in your alma mater colors (don't forget to use the hashtag #CollegeColors)!

  2. Attend or watch your favorite collegiate football game

    College campuses on game day are one of the most energetic places to be—walking around, you'd think everyone just won the lottery. Celebrate the best college way possible: tailgating and watching the football game with friends. There's no better all-encompassing college experience like game day.

  3. Organize a night out with your college friends

    Not only is college a place for sports, traditions, and fun, it's also a place to building lifelong friendships. To show your true colors for your school, organize a get together with your favorite college buddies. Reminisce about those college glory days, relive those traditions, and show how college spirit lasts for many years to come.

Why We Love College Colors Day

  1. #Sports

    Coinciding with "back to school" and the kick-off of intercollegiate sports, College Colors Day gets us in that exciting, crazy-about-sports, college mindset.

  2. Camaraderie

    Rallying behind a team creates a cohesive environment where we feel accepted and included among a larger population. It elicits positivity and keeps us connected for a common cause with a "we're all in this together" mentality.

  3. It keeps tradition alive

    College colors, especially on game day, are symbols of traditions, history, rivalry, joy, fun, and even bitterness. There's something great and powerful in participating in something that's been around for decades and showing it off.
