The Colorado Buffaloes athletics programs have not had a lot to cheer about over the last few seasons, but it seems that they will be turning things around pretty soon. They have been making renovations on their indoor practice facility and the Champions Center as well as creating the “Buff Walk.” The University seems to be making big steps towards completing the building processes.
According to BSN Denver, a representative has been going up to the campus in Boulder and taking pictures of the progress every few weeks. You can view the pictures at their website.
The progress on the football team’s indoor practice facility is moving smoothly as it seems they have completed the steel structure for the roof of the facility. The website reports: “…a structure of this size spanning well over 100 yards.”
The Champions Center is visible from the football stadium as it overlooks the field. The Center will be home to the football program and athletics administration upon completion.
The “Buff Walk” is similar to other schools’ traditional walks, but CU went above and beyond to ask fans to donate bricks and help pave the walk with customizable bricks. The “Buff Walk” also serves as a donation process to help fund the “Drive for 105”. the fundraising campaign for the athletic facilities.
No matter if you are a football fan or not, you can certainly appreciate all the upgrades the Buffaloes have been hard at work with. If you’re a CU student on summer break, the campus will certainly look different when you arrive back in the fall.
