Join us in celebrating the start of college football season on College Colors Day, Friday, Sept. 3. The 17th annual College Colors Day is a nationwide celebration of the traditions and spirit that embody the college experience. Owl fans across the nation are encouraged to show their pride by donning their favorite FAU apparel, and sharing photos and videos of themselves on social media using #FAU.

FAU’s annual College Colors Day Celebration event will take place on Friday, Sept. 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Diversity Way Lawn on the Boca Raton campus. All faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members are invited to attend, and of course, wear their FAU gear! FAU also is giving fans an opportunity to win prizes with home/office decorating contests this week. For more information, visit

I can’t wait to see all of my fellow Owls sharing their FAU pride on College Colors Day. Also, as a reminder, the university will be closed on Monday, Sept. 6, in observance of Labor Day. Have a safe and pleasant long weekend, and Go Owls!
