    what are CU's homecoming traditions? anything unique (e.g. Georgia Tech)?

    Is the parade on Friday worth a few hours, or is it only interesting for HC Court nominees and families with small children (e.g. Virginia Tech)?

    My guess is that now that the HC parade is part of the Friday night Pearl Street Stampede - it would be worth it.

    Otherwise, I think CU doesn't do much for Homecoming at all. Hell, pretty sure we got rid of the HC Court idea in the mid-90s.

    CU doesn't do a homecoming court. The "parade" is just full of "floats" that some Frats put together and a few residence halls. The stampede is a fun thing to see so if you are down there for that anyway then it probably would be worthwhile to get there a little early to check out the parade, I just wouldn't come in specifically to see it.

    I was wondering why I saw so many old people on campus today.

    really? no queen? no king?

    how do you determine which is the coolest frat at CU?

    We're too busy fighting over which pronouns to call each other.

    This ain't the South and Greek life has never been a big thing in Boulder since the 50's, if then.
