College Colors Day is an annual celebration dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that make the college experience great.
Celebrated annually the Friday before Labor Day, Gov. Kay Ivey proclaimed Alabama will participate in the national event August 31 on the steps of the state capitol on Friday. She was joined by school representatives and mascots from Alabama’s 14 public universities and colleges to promote the upcoming day and encouraged all Alabamians to wear their favorite school’s colors.
“In partnership with
@ALHigherEd, I’m very proud to proclaim August 31 as College Colors Day in Alabama. I encourage everyone to participate in this annual tradition & proudly wear your favorite college colors to support our 14 public universities!” Ivey tweeted Friday morning.
