Alumni Relations staff and all your fellow Western State Colorado University alumni ask you to 
“Get Involved”

  What is the mission? The Alumni Office is calling it; Project Curecanti— 1992 was the last year that the Western yearbook, “The Curecanti,” was published.  Since that time, there has been no published record of social events, school activities or the people who attended Western in those years.  We are on a mission to rectify this situation.

  Where is your help needed?  We are asking you to help build a digital memory of your days at Western by sending some of your fun Western photos.  We’d like photos of any event or activity or just plain old socializing from those years.  Any and all photos would be appreciated.  We just ask that you give us captions as best you can so that we’ll know who’s who. **NOTE: If you have a particular portrait of yourself that you'd like to include for your class section please note this in your email.  If you don’t mind us using the photo Western has on file for your Mountaineer Card please sign the attached photo release form and forward it along with your other photos. 

  Why? To carry on the history of Western in a visual media for all to enjoy for years to come.

  How do I get the photos to you, you ask?  It’s easy!  We’ve set up a special email account for you to use to send your photos.  Just email them to  If your photos aren’t digital and you don’t want to scan them, just stick them in an envelope and mail them to:  Western State Colorado University, 600 N. Adams St. Crystal Hall rm 104,  Alumni Relations Office,  Attn: Project Curecanti, Gunnison, CO 81231 We will return your photos just as you sent them within 2 weeks.  We will even email them to you as well if you would like digital copies of your photos.  Just include your email address when you send the photos.

  Help us re-create your days at Western!  We’re going to be creating an online Curecanti with a secured login & password access.  This site will only be viewable by Western State Alumni that have been approved by the Alumni Relations office.  Let’s “Get Involved” Mountaineers—let’s work on this and create something that we will all enjoy for years and years to come! We’ll be accepting photos continually, but we hope you can get to them before you pack them all away after graduation.
