College Colors Day


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, September 4, 2015.

This is a chancefor 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!

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans will celebrate College Colors Day at George Mason University on Friday. College Colors Day also kicks off another school year of Spirit Fridays at Mason where the Mason community is encouraged to wear Mason gear every Friday to show their spirit and pride. Wear your colors and be a part of College Colors Day!
