University of Wyoming students, alumni, faculty and fans are encouraged to wear UW merchandise Friday, Sept. 3, for the sixth annual College Colors Day. The UW Cowboys open the football season against Southern Utah Saturday, Sept. 4.

The event coincides with both back to campus and the kick-off of intercollegiate athletics, says Barbara Jordan, UW Trademark and Licensing office manager. She says UW joins other universities nationwide to celebrate the achievements of colleges and universities and recognize their critical and fundamental importance to the United States.

"College Colors Day is quickly becoming an annual dress-down day where individuals show their school spirit for companies and organizations across the country -- a casual Friday the day before the first full Saturday of the college football season," Jordan says. "College Colors Day 2010 will be a nationwide celebration of the collegiate spirit."
