The Colorado Springs - Pueblo Network

Even though it is only few miles south of Denver, Colorado Springs - Pueblo is a Network all to itself with over 4000 DU alumni, parents, and friends. The views are spectacular as well as your opportunity to connect this network. The annual pre-game celebration for the rival game against the school that shall not be named and the annual service project are other great ways to meet fellow Pioneers. The Colorado Springs - Pueblo Network is eager to connect with you and is open to alumni, parents, current students, and friends of DU. Connect with your Network Leaders below or reach out to your staff liaison to learn how to get more connected. We can’t wait to hear from you!
