Green & Gold Gala

Join us for a RAMasquerade!

The 16th annual Green and Gold Gala is a masquerade-themed opportunity to make an impact on Colorado State University students who call the Denver area home. Each year, CSU alumni and supporters come together at the Gala to celebrate CSU and raise money for the Alumni Association's Metro Denver Scholarship endowment. This scholarship assists current Colorado State junior and senior students from the seven-county Denver area who excel in the classroom and community, and have demonstrated financial hardship.

Your Support Makes a Difference

By attending the Green & Gold Gala and supporting the Metro Denver Scholarship fund, you can make a direct and lasting impact on the lives of CSU students. As a gateway to graduation, the Metro Denver Scholarship allows students from Denver-area counties facing hardship in their final years at CSU to complete their degrees.  Here are some of their stories.

Miriam Alzamily

Miriam Alzamily is a sophomore at Colorado State University studying computer science. As a member of CSU’s Association for Computing Machinery Women’s Chapter, Alzamily hopes to bring greater equality for women to the STEM field. She worked with the Warner College of Natural Resources K-12 Outreach Program as a freshman to encourage young girls’ knowledge of STEM subjects. As a first generation college student, Miriam hopes to remain an example for young girls to pursue their dreams in everything they do.

De’Ohndre Jackson 

De’Ohndre Jackson, a junior at Colorado State University, is studying construction management. He came to CSU as a freshman with the idea of pursuing a degree in engineering, but realized construction management was for him after speaking with peers and advisors in the department. He hopes to one day open his own company that specializes in residential and commercial construction. Jackson is determined to make his dreams a reality and wants others to know that anything is possible with the right education and determination to go with it.

Quincy Gill 

Quincy Gill is a junior at Colorado State University studying interior design. She is currently the President of the Student Hospitality Network and is thankful for the opportunities the interior design program provides her to work in leadership positions. After graduation, Gill hopes to combine her passion and work to affect many lives through sustainability, health, and wellness with her interior designs. She is passionate about her work, a trait she received from her father, and hopes to channel that passion during her time at CSU and in the future.  

Jazmin Estrada-Jimenez

Jazmin Estrada-Jimenez is a junior studying international studies with a concentration in Latin America and a minor in international development at Colorado State University. Her interest in the history and culture of indigenous people runs deep, but it was not until she came to CSU that she realized she could make a career out of her passion. Estrada-Jimenez changed her major from watershed science to international studies after an anthropology class opened her eyes and aided her in finding her passion. She hopes her future career as an international lawyer marries the two things that interest her most – ensuring an environmental future and working alongside indigenous people.

Perla Madrid

Perla Madrid is a sophomore at Colorado State University studying nutrition. Her main goal after graduation is to help people live better, healthier lives. She is not afraid of a challenge and knows that helping people will provide her with new experiences daily. Perla worked hard to get to college and hopes to make the most of her time at CSU. She is thankful for CSU because it has helped her fulfill her goals and is a place to get the support she needs.

Katie Linenberger 

Katie Linenberger is a junior at Colorado State University studying sociology. Her heart for people and childhood experience caring for her mother and younger sister solidified her choice to study sociology. She plans to write her honors thesis using research she’s gathered while working with a women’s group in Fort Collins. She hopes to use this opportunity to pursue social research in the future. Linenberger’s dreams are big and she’s thankful for the knowledge and opportunities CSU presents her with to help people in the future.
