College Colors Day is nationally organized by our partner, The Collegiate Licensing Company, and was first celebrated in 2005.  It always falls on the Friday before Labor Day.  College Colors Day seeks to celebrate and promote the spirit that makes college traditions great, such as “back-to-school”, by encouraging students, faculty/staff, alumni and fans to wear apparel of their favorite college throughout the day of Friday, August 29, 2014.  This is a chance for YOU to show YOUR school spirit by wearing your college colors at work, school or to play.  College Colors Day – spread the word and wear your colors (Green and Gold) wherever you are!
