Student Ambassadors Help Keep #CUAnschutzTogether

Next week, you will see three student ambassadors out and about on campus, helping to welcome those approved for on-campus activity and answering your questions about physical distancing, masks, campus check-in and screening processes, and more. 

Our student ambassadors are here to help keep our community safe, and they will politely remind and assist those on campus with our protocols. When you see them, say hello and grab a mug or T-shirt. And as always, thank you for doing your part to help keep #CUAnschutzTogether.
