The Colorado Area Lafayette College Alumni Club was formed in 1980 and continues to provide a
connection to the college for many of our school's alumni. We organize a number of events
each year with the purpose of bringing together local alumni.
Our cornerstone event each year is on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, when we
join with our Colorado Lehigh club friends in a local Denver area sports bar to
watch an annual satellite telecast of our much heralded football game. Our two
schools have the longest and most played
football rivalry of any two colleges or
universities in the nation. Up to this point in 2023, since 1864,
we have played 159 games. Lafayette has
managed to win more than half of those contests (81-72-5 (as of June 2023)).
The annual game is played at Lafayette in even years and at Lehigh in odd years.
Over the past 43 years here in Colorado, we have held
symphony nights, hockey nights, golf outings, museum wine and cheese functions,
white water rafting trips, picnics, dinners & lunches with the President and much more.
If you are a Lafayette alumn and would like to be more involved in local alumni affairs,
we would be happy to have you contact us.
Several of us also act as Lafayette's Colorado area AAR (Admissions Area
Representatives) to help applying students from Colorado get a more personal feel for
