Alumni and Parent Weekend

A Weekend of Fun, Fellowship, and Memories!


For over 100 years, Colorado Christian University and its heritage schools have been sending out graduates who think critically, lead creatively and with high ethical standard, and show the love of Jesus Christ to the world. Once a year, we invite alumni and parents to return and remember where it all began!

Alumni and Parent Weekend is a time of fellowship, rejoicing, and connection for our alumni, current students, parents, and friends of the University. Is is also an opportunity to visually see the growth on CCU's main Lakewood campus. There will be many opportunities to fellowship and network with the greater CCU community.
