Proud sponsors of the United States Air Force Academy


Parents Weekend is traditionally held over the Labor Day Weekend. For C4C parents, it is likely their first opportunity to tour the Terrazzo, visit their Cadet’s classrooms and dorm-room, and get an in-depth understanding of what life is like at the US Air Force Academy.

Mitchell Hall Lunch on Friday

6/30/2014 - U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- News Release
Falcon football fans will pay a $10 parking fee at all Falcon football homes games beginning with the Aug. 30 game against Nicholls State
The fees will go toward supporting all cadet athletic programs.

You can rent a $5 seat as soon as you get there. It gives you a back rest, your "designated space" and are more comfortable than the hard bleachers. Keep in mind this is the same stadium where you will see your beautiful cadet graduate in a few years!! Remember to be prepared for all 4 seasons in the same day! A disposable raincoat, a wide-brim hat, Factor 50 sunscreen (no aerosols), chapstick, binoculars to search for your cadet and remember to keep drinking water (you can bring in un-opened factory sealed water bottles)! Just layer so you can add or remove articles of clothes as needed. Labor Day can be exhaustingly HOT, so a long-sleeve white collared button-up shirt can protect you. Look for a nice straw hat for your handsome husband as well and keep re-applying sunscreen on the tops of his ears!! So many folks received bad sunburns on game day and you don't want to be miserable for the rest of your stay in COS!
