College Colors Day is nationally organized by The Collegiate Licensing Company and was first celebrated in 2005. College Colors day always falls on the Friday before Labor Day, and seeks to celebrate and promote the spirit that makes college traditions great by encouraging students, faculty/staff, alumni and fans to wear apparel of their favorite college throughout the day on Friday, September 4, 2015.
This day also kicks off Spirit Fridays at Mason where the Mason community is encouraged to wear Mason gear every Friday to show their Mason spirit and pride. As Mason families, we invite you to join in on the fun of College Colors Day this Friday and on Spirit Fridays throughout the semester!
