Introducing the Ed Robson Arena at Colorado College
After much anticipation, the ice has been unveiled at the Ed Robson Arena at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. Named in his honor, Ed Robson, founder of Robson Communities, Inc., played hockey for the Colorado College Tigers and graduated in 1954 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Banking.
As a key donor for the new hockey arena, Robson recently attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony and said he was humbled to be at the ceremony as he received a standing ovation. He credited the beginning of his hard-earned success when he received a scholarship from Colorado College. He said he hopes his alma mater has a strong season at the new venue because “winning is important to the fans, students, and city.”
Since breaking ground in 2020, students, faculty, staff, alumni as well as local residents have been eager to experience this new state-of-the-art venue. The Ed Robson Arena enables the college hockey team to play games on campus for the first time in its history. Learn more about the Ed Robson Arena here or take a look at the highlights below.
