Dear fellow students:

In light of the upcoming Rocky Mountain Showdown, we are reminded of the important role competition plays in our sports, our university system, and our lives. We must also simultaneously acknowledge the clear distinction between competitiveness and incivility. While we enjoy the competition that our sports teams cultivate, we must not do so at the expense of basic manners and sportsmanship.

Keep in mind that profanity is poor sportsmanship and does not help build community among the schools. Ram and Buffalo pride is not about putting others down, but rather about positive cheers.

As students of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Colorado State University, we feel it is important to remind you that no student is immune from university discipline simply because they are off campus. Both universities work closely with stadium officials to ensure that fans enjoy a safe and lawful Showdown. Underage drinking or any other violations will not be tolerated. For those of you who decide to legally consume alcohol, we ask that you do so in a safe and responsible manner.

We hope you enjoy this Friday’s game and show your school spirit.

May the best team win,

Tristan Syron, Associated Students of CSU President

Ben Amundson, Associated Students of CSU Speaker of the Senate

Jake Reagan, David Kidd, Olivia Wittenberg, CU Boulder Student Body Presidents 

Josh Ney, CU Boulder Legislative Council President
