The Lory Society is named in honor of Charles A. Lory, president from 1909 to 1940, who oversaw the transition from Colorado Agricultural College to Colorado State College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts (Colorado A&M).
Lory Society members share a sense of stalwart community with the University, a profound commitment to the University’s land-grant mission, and have transformed Colorado State University. Because of these members, we are able to seek answers to global questions, support the communities that we exist to serve, and provide students with the knowledge, experience, and insight to become our leaders of the future.
