At CU Boulder, we have traditionally hosted GSU, Girl Scout University. Come and join us, we have a maximum of 200 girls. Come hang out. It’ll be lots of fun. It is a day to be on campus and you can earn two badges while you’re at it. You’ll come in the morning and earn the first badge. Then, you’re served lunch on campus, and spend the rest of your day earning your second badge.
We had a great day with CU’s Women’s Basketball celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day recently! CU Athletics hosted a pre-game celebration where girls met players from various CU Women’s teams and got to try their hand at some fun sports.
Girl Scouts enjoyed skills stations hosted by CU’s Women’s Athletic teams. Girls learned about Soccer, Lacrosse, Cheerleading, and more!
One of the big highlights was an autograph session with CU Women Athletes! Over 200 people lined up for to meet team members and get autographs. Many were our Girl Scouts who traveled across the Front Range to join the fun!
Our Girl Scouts and families enjoyed the game and cheered on the CU Buffs to a 76-66 victory over the Oregon Ducks!
A BIG than you goes to Cassandra McCulley and CU Athletics for hosting such a great opportunity for our Girl Scouts!

The University of Colorado Athletic Department staff recently hosted GSCO staff for a tour of CU’s Champions Center. The center is the home for CU Football, Athletic Offices, and CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center. The center opened earlier this year and features state of the art work out facilities, football team locker room, and lounge. There are also historic displays featuring team trophies and uniforms as well as event space with lovely views of the Flat Irons.
GSCO staff was onsite to visit about upcoming Girl Scout winter events with CU Basketball. We’re making plans with both CU Women’s and Men’s basketball teams, so Girl Scouts will have a chance to see two CU games this year. Plans for our game with CU Women’s Basketball are coming soon. Save the date for Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017 for Girl Scout Night with CU Men’s Basketball. Plans for both games will include a special ticket deal for Girl Scout troops and families and additional fun Girl Scout activities to be announced. For more information, please contact Lori Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big thank you goes to CU Athletic Department staff for a great tour and for coordinating our upcoming winter Girl Scout events!
